I watched I Am Legend with my lovely wife the other night. LAME. It had the feel of a much longer and much better movie that got edited into goofiness. I think to have done it well it would have had to have been a trilogy. I guess Will Smith doesn’t do trilogies.
The internal inconsistencies jumped out right away and distracted me from the otherwise cool premise. I have to admit that I have always had a thing for the “last man on Earth” style stories. I just wish they had done a better job of this one. The transition points, the points that the direction of the story changed, were too pat, too easy. And the ending was teh suck. Any time you have a character doing a voice over at the end to explain wtf just happened, the ending sucks. If that character were narrating all along (like in 300), that’s one thing. Any other time, LAME.
I had been anticipating seeing this movie for quite some time and had never gotten around to it. Now I wish I hadn’t, because my anticipation was much superior to the actual thing.
