This review is from: I Am Legend [DVD]  (DVD)
Although I was slightly sceptical about watching this film, having heard that it wasn't as good as it's hype, I tried to watch it with an open mind. As a result, I managed to shake off thoughts of familiarity about the script and settle down to enjoy what is in actual fact an excellent piece of entertainment.
The story isn't great, and the 'monsters' are....well, not good, but the filmwork on the city scenes is top notch, and very realistic.
Will Smith does an average job at being slightly crazy/paranoid - he is totally out acted by Sam (the dog!) who does command more empathy from the audience than his human co-star.
I liked this, against my better judgement, it is worth watching as long as you aren't expecting anything oscar quality. I would rent or borrow, rather than buy, cause I don't think it has the quality of story for repeat viewings.
