I am Legend



Saw this movie last night... was somewhat disappionted.

SPOILER - DO NOT READ ANYMORE IF YOU WISH TO SEE THIS FILM.








It's basically a version of 28 Days later. My main problem is that nothing is really explained. There is no how did this happen? What caused it?

And at only an hour and a half long, it's not really value for money.

Still Will Smith is very good and the dog made me cry.

It's a remake of The Omega Man (1971), which was a remake of The Last Man on Earth (1964) and both are based on the book I am Legend from 1954. 28 days Later (and several others) are all just variations on the original idea from 1954.

PS I read that at the very beginning of the movie you are told about a genetically re-engineered measles virus to cure cancer - that's what started it.

Ahhh, thanks Dr John - I was not aware of this as I have not seen either the Omega Man or The Last Man on Earth.

Cheers
