Film review | I am legend

Hello lovelies
Today I'm going to be reviewing the film 'I am legend'. I really enjoyed this film as I loved the whole idea of it. I think it was really well thought out and it told an amazing story.

Here's what it says about the film on the Internet "Robert Neville (Will Smith), a brilliant scientist, is a survivor of a man-made plague that transforms humans into bloodthirsty mutants. He wanders alone through New York City, calling out for other possible survivors , and works on finding a cure for the plague using his own immune blood. Neville knows he is badly outnumbered and the odds are against him, and all the while, the infected wait for him to make a mistake that will deliver Neville into their hands.". 



This is probably one of my favourite will smith movies because I just think its brilliant to see him on his own and it really reflects just how talented he is. I think the fact that the film is for a good part of it, just him and his dog it shows just how well he can engage an audience. I really loved how about half way through the film they introduced another two characters and its very good to see how he interacts with people after being alone for so long. 



The thing I loved most about the film is how it kept flashing back to the reason why they are in this situation. It shows him and his family getting separated and then his wife and child getting killed tragically in a helicopter crash, I think. I feel like the first hour was the best. As much as I enjoyed seeing another two characters added, it would have still be amazing film without them. The other part of this film that I loved was the relationship between Robert and his dog. I think it shows just how attached someone can get to their animal. I think it shows such a great bond between the two and I cried when (Spoiler alert) he had to kill his dog because it was infected with the virus and it would have killed him.


I'm just really sad that in the end Robert dies. He finally finds a cure for the virus but its to late as he starts to be attacked by the infected people. He gives the women and her child in what I can only think was a bomb proof hide away. She then goes and finds the safe zone where she gives them the cure. So he becomes a legend among those people who were desperate for a cure.

Have you seen I am legend? What did you think of the film? Did it end the way you wanted it to? Let me know in the comments.

Lots of love,
