I Am Legend is a new film directed by Francis Lawrence. It's based on a well-known beloved science fiction novel by Richard Matheson. It's been made into movie several times before starring Vincent Price and also Charlton Heston.

 

This one stars Will Smith. He plays Robert Neville, an army officer doctor and medical researcher who also seems to be the last man left alive on the island of Manhattan after a virus has wiped everyone out and forced the evacuation of the city. He is not entirely alone. Neville has a faithful German shepherd named Sam and there re also a lot of mutant zombies types running around on the island. They can t come out in daylight because they ll disintegrate or shrivel or die or something. But when the sun goes down, they come out looking for prey and they are the usual scary movies' zombies that they wanna eat everyone in sight and they move very fast.

 

The movie, however, is the best when it moves slowly. The first hour of this is really terrific because of the way that Francis Lawrence and a team of CGI effects specialists has emptied out the city and presented us some very familiar landmarks. Yet it all looks very real and very vivid and there's something haunting about this but also short of attractive about . . . And imagine what a playground that would be if you could go out, deer hunting if you could drive as fast as you want, all without leaving Manhattan.

 

And Will Smith is the other great asset that this movie has, he is one of the few movie stars I can think of who could carry a movie pretty much all by himself without another human being to talk to or to revolve of or to serve as his foil or a straight man. That's perhaps inevitable that this movie, because it is a genre movie, it's a zombie movie, science fiction horror movie, an action movie, does disappoint me in the last half hour, so it gets very conventional , very sentimental. I want to tell you what happens, but so far I has to say that it doesn t quite live up to either the hauntingness or the enchanted fantasy aspects of its premise. But it is still a pretty good time.
 

宠辱不惊,闲看庭前花开花落。
去留无意,漫随天外云卷云舒。
