I Am Legend (2007)
I’ve wanted to see this movie for a very long time. I remember when they were filming and my friend Brianna told me how they had set up hundreds of potted plants everywhere and they were keeping her from getting to class on time. Seeing Union Square and the potted plant scene was fun. Also a bit creepy. And sad. I recognize those places–it was strange to see them in ruin.
I liked that I was conflicted over what to think regarding the doctor behind the outbreak–Neville didn’t exactly redeem himself completely in the end, but what he chooses to do does help. The sudden God injection was awkward and strange. I would have much preferred that “God’s plan” stay out of the redemption of man–especially when it was man who screwed it all up.
All in all, I enjoyed the movie though my favorite character was definitely Sam. She totally could have survived on her own. Maybe when the zombies come, Simon will be as great. Maybe. Probably not. I’d be dead if I had to depend on him, haha.
If you like end-of-the-world redemption tales, I highly recommend this one. And when you finish, tell me what you think of the ending.
