I Am Legend

Jaysen and I went with my dad to see this movie tonight. For those of you who aren't on the up and up with this movie it's about a scientist who is immune to the effects of a manmade drug. Those not immune have either died or turned into the "Dark Seekers". Similar to vampires, but they are NOT vampires. Anyway...he's attempting to find a cure so that he can bring humanity back.
I went to see this movie out of pure curiosity. I knew it was going to be scary, but my curiosity must have gotten the best of me. I HATE scary movies. I have an overactive imagination. This was not a blood and guts movie, but VERY suspenseful. Honestly, it was a really good movie. Very fast paced, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. There were parts that actually made me want to cry....and then parts that gave you a little chuckle. But were just insanely tense. Waiting for something to jump out on the screen. The majority of the movie was acted by only Will Smith and his dog, Sam. Will did an excellent job keeping the flow of the movie going, and the banter with his dog was great.
So, if you can handle a suspenseful, slightly scary movie...I would suggest this one. No, it's not one that will be purchased and put into the Burnham collection. BUT, I am glad that I went to see it. Curiousity taken care of. Though I do want to get the book and read it. I'm sure there were things left out or things that they were not able to portray in the movie that were important. I'll let you know when I'm done! ;0)

I've been wondering about this movie. I thought the previews looked good. We don't go to movies often, so if not, I'm sure we will rent it! Thanks for the review.

I had not even heard of this movie until you mentioned here in your blog a few weeks ago. I am glad it was good. I don't know why I haven't seen any advertisements for it. Weird!
