"I — legend" — the average film about infected with a virus. When I read the reviews, I decided that this film will differ from others of this genre, but after watching, I realized not so. Although, I can't say that the movie is bad, he high quality, sincere, in it has the pros and cons of both any.

"my name is Robert Neville. I a survivor living in new York. I come to the South street seaport every day at midday when the sun is in the Zenith. If there are survivors, I can give you food, provide shelter, provide security... If you can hear me, someone...answer. You do not lonely."

the Plot. All began with that  the"smart" people decided to find a cure for incurable diseases and cancer wrong with the manufacturer of the vaccine that led to infected almost all of humanity. Remained in living only Robert Neville, our main character, who is trying to survive the whole movie, along with my dog Samantha.

The film certainly was very mental that sometimes even wanted to cry. Also in the film raises such constant problems as of friendship, inner strength of man, neslojnoe morale and heroism.

I think Robert really can be called a character he gave up a lot to trying to save not only "your own skin", but and the whole world. And because most of the us in a difficult situation not will be to help others, and the conditions, which was our main character, just panic, not emotionally will stand.

"You will not choose the path of blind, sliding into the mindless, fruitless existence in anticipation of old age or accident. You have to fight. On the map must be delivered to all, and life and you must either find the answer — or lose."

Very often people in difficult life situations, cursing people, and the world in General, I want to all gone. But this huge wonderful world around us, opens up many prospects and opportunities the person is not may live long without the people around them. So think that will be with us if it will all disappear. At the end of the film understand what do never surrender, we need to continue to live as would be hard for you not been.

will Smith very well handled in my role. Pain, fear, grief, despair... All I saw his eyes. Alice Braga and Charlie Tahan appear in the film a short period of time, so it is very difficult to say anything about their acting. I liked dog. I put it on a par with professional actors. The friendship of this dog and Robert was impressed.

"Everything in order, my boy. Be patient. Soon you will come to your Santa Claus with the nice answers. And you will no longer feel yourself a Robinson, a little crazy Mr. Crusoe, abandoned in solitude on an island of night surrounded by oceans of death."

Thus, "I — legend" — mental well-made film, but the characters do not to the end revealed how and the full potential of this film. Also, I think it turned out a bit blurry the end, though, and is correct because another such work to be and not be. Yes, it is a good movie, but something has enough...

Film I found in the car, not seeing vehicles trailers... do not having information. Took the movie on the evening to sit with a beer. I then even didn't know the next day is not a dozen stores to look and buy this masterpiece in my collection (which includes only those movies that my bear in itself a deep meaning, and this scarce sufficient).

We love I first frame is not for special effects (which I do not feel worthy criterion of any film), and for emotional experiences that are experienced. I woke up only after 15 minutes after the ending, and I thought it happened to me. What I went mind the streets of the empty city that I was hunting mining food in the red convertible in antelopes in Central Park that I shivered the night in a dark house, listening to the sounds of the window, I cried on a dying four-legged friend...

The film is a masterpiece, a one-man show, the film-a rarity in modern cinema. And let them have mistakes, let the skeptics argue about the lack of good plot or special effects. This film which add not have idea! The idea is thought-provoking and up on the main character. Even if man becomes an animal, a bloodthirsty monster that still no that human to it, no foreign and not change any one virus.

Must see!

Quite sharp, quite bold, a little unusual, stressful moments, rarely sentimental, insanely expensive and very beautiful film. May not a masterpiece.

Not my style these movies, so I put emphasis on films with a deeper plot, or as it is now fashionable to say, the movie "across the universe".

But agree, how does it feel to see the mighty metropolis, and even more interesting Manhattan, with abandoned buildings, empty streets, empty shops, skyscrapers. A few years ago, I had the privilege to visit the New York, to walk on "filled with" tourists with cameras, yellow taxi, and millions of advertising Manhattany, and there was no limit to my delight, watch Times Square (but in the film), completely empty. Area which every day there are millions of tourists, empty, and the roads are covered with weeds... And how romantic, drive to the wide elegant streets of the metropolis on a brand new Dodge Viper, with exciting (don't get me wrong) the sound of a sporting motor. Start favorite track (somewhere in the 11th minute of the movie sounds a great song unknown to me group). Or say the hefty Ford Explorer? I think the film with the brutal part will Smith, and cute Samantha (the dog) has implemented their long thoughts.

And the monsters?they are not afraid, on the contrary, "goose bumps on the skin" in those moments when they appeared. And Robert Neville, a military virologist doctor, in moments of clashes with monsters, the impression was that he life he side side. No surprise and of fear. If so it necessary.

But finally, can not specify a Sam (Samantha). Very cute dog, which is over half of the film accompanied by Robert. A particularly touching scene when Sam is mortally wounded, this scene cuts to the alive, but the Director fast us returns to "your place", before turning a sweet dog into another monster, with which had to end it.

a Very beautiful film, literally "stuffed" with different kind of effects. But most important, all in a very professional manner, exceptional...

And certainly recommended play a large plasma, with gorgeous acoustics...
