Blunt Reviews Presents: I Am Legend (2007)

i am legend

I could have liked this film, but there are too many things about it that piss me off. I have no problem with Will Smith’s central performance because he has appeared in far worse films, but it’s just kind of everything else that sinks the film.

Flimsy plot that isn’t fully developed? Check.

Half baked tragic back story involving family? Check.

Animal sidekick with predictable downfall? Check.

Evil creatures with unexplained abilities? Check.

Fucking ridiculous conclusion to the story? Check.

Unnecessary parallel to Bob Marley that doesn’t actually work? Check.

Pissed off Adam by the end of the film? Check.
