If you ignore its flaws, I am Legend can be enjoyed as the perfect brainless Boxing Day blockbuster - but it is essentially a leftover festive turkey.

Smith turns in a terrific performance, nailing Neville's angst while allowing room for humor.

When they do, banging their heads against plate glass as movie zombies always do, I started needing something else to think about.

I wouldn't dream of giving away the ending, but it's not likely to satisfy either the action crowd or Matheson fans.

It is absolutely gripping in its vision of how lonely it would be to be the last man on Earth. It's absolutely dull in almost every other respect.

I Am Legend is a grenade that goes off when least expected. It has more horror than heart, but it is never boring.

So often, sci-fi is overproduced, but I Am Legend doesn't look like a CGI extravaganza. It looks like an edgy suspense movie shot on the fly in New York City after the fall. And because of that, it's all the more effective.

Smith is a good deal better than Arnold might have been, and the dog is wonderful. Watch the first hour and see something a bit special.

Bold, and successfully maintains suspense.

first-time feature director Francis Lawrence deserves an ovation for his scene-setting and early scare count.

What started out so promisingly, a companion piece of sorts to Children of Men, disappears in a frenzy of screaming, head-banging, bloodiness - followed by totally unconvincing redemption.
December 28, 2007
There is something a bit thin about the story, and just as in 28 Days Later, I find that digital, rage-filled zombies halve in dramatic interest with every second that passes.
December 28, 2007
The depiction of the eerily overgrown city is one of the first genuine and unobtrusive testaments to the groundbreaking power of computer-generated effects in years.
December 28, 2007
You're left gawping at $100 million-worth of eye-popping futuristic B-movie.
December 18, 2007
I Am Legend sees Smith deliver a surprisingly moving performance as he wanders empty New York streets going slowly ga-ga.
December 17, 2007
Will Smith is in prime form.
December 14, 2007
The herky-jerky script, by Mark Protosevich and Akiva Goldsman, favors vignettes and set pieces over dramatic development, and those damned zombies are everywhere, overwhelming the proceedings with their slobbering and howling.
December 14, 2007
I Am Legend is a blockbuster like no other, one that finds its grandness in modesty. It's a star vehicle with a star who knows his place in the universe.
December 14, 2007
I Am Legend is actually about the last man on earth played by one of the last real movie stars on earth.
