I Am Legend

Richard Matheson's cult classic novel has finally made it to the big screen featuring the star power of Will Smith. After seeing Smith's performance that captures the fear, isolation and loneliness of the main character as he tries to survive and find a cure for the plague that has destroyed humanity, I cannot imagine Arnold Schwarzenegger pulling it off when he was orginally cast as the lead. Smith appears to be back on the top of his game and has recovered from previous box office misses like Wild Wild West and The Legend of Bagger Vance. Even though the movie is more a sci-fi thriller then a horror film, it still delivers on the scares even if they are not as edgy as they could have been. Definately rent this movie if you did not get a chance to see it on the big screen and keep the lights turned off.
