I Am Legend

Will Smith steps out in front of this third attempt to adapt Richard Matheson's classic sci-fi horror novel. Previous versions included Vincent Price in 1964's The Last Man on Earth and Charlton Heston in 1971's The Omega Man. Smith plays Dr. Robert Neville, a scientist trapped in New York City after a virus decimates all of humanity--which wouldn't be so rough if most people hadn't been transformed into bloodsucking monsters. This surprisingly downbeat thriller isn't any more faithful to the novel, but the tension level is extremely high and the vision of post-apocalyptic New York is a sight to behold. 100 minutes PG-13.
