Sci-Fi Movie Podcast - I Am LegendThis time on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, we’re digging deeper into “I Am Legend” from 2007, directed by Francis Lawrence.  We’re very happy to be joined by Daniel McIntyre, friend and long time listener of the Podcast.  This

The Positive
With I Am Legend, Ian really liked the creepy and moody environment created in the post-plague New York.  Jonathan liked the sense of desolation and isolation that Robert Neville experienced.  Another highlight of the movie is the dramatic performance by Will Smith and how he played a gradually deteriorating character.  Smith’s portrayal was subtle and gradual, giving us the sense that our hero is teetering on the brink of insanity.

The Negative
We found questionable CG effects on the creatures and it was hard to believe these creatures were once Human. It was unclear exactly what the creatures were.  Were they Vampires? Or, Zombies? Ian found it heartbreaking to see the death of Sam the Dog.  Daniel found the movie differed in many ways from the original novel, and found he enjoyed the movie less after reading the book.

The Verdict
I Am Legend” is the third remake of the book by Richard Matheson. You’ll likely enjoy the movie if you haven’t read the book.  Also, we suggest you watch “[easyazon_link asin=”B001AYENBM” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”scifimovpod-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]I Am Legend: Alternate Ending[/easyazon_link] instead of the original theatrical version.
