Plot : A virus that was created to battle cancer was given to some cancer patients, the results looked promising. A few years later the virus mutates into a plague that wipes out most of the population in New York,and maybe even the world. Most of the people turned into creatures of the night, but there are a few people who are immune. Among them is military scientist, Robert Neville who has spent the last 3 years in the ruins of New York city trying to find a cure. Will he help save mankind?
Review : This was probably one of the most creepiest vampire movies I have ever seen. The directors really did a great job with scaring their viewers, because there seriously are a lot of scenes in here that will scare the shit out of you. You can probably credit the makeup artist for that, these vampires are bad ass, I know I wouldn’t want to be in Robert’s place right now.
What can I say about the acting? Will Smith! There, I said all you need to know, he did such an amazing job with this role. He was always a great actor, but he really delivered a great performance in this film. There really isn’t another major actor in the film, most of the movie is him being the lone survivor, so he didn’t have contact with anybody, he basically acted this whole movie out by himself, and did a marvelous job. Being alone in a huge city like New York for 3 years can probably get to you, and in Robert’s case it did. I love how they made him set up the manikins in stores and actually go up to them and talk to them. It made us feel for him and realize that he really has nobody, that would effect any of us and it was good to see them put that in the film.
The story was original and very well done. It did a great job adding horror with a bit of action and still being able to keep a heartwarming story in it as well. Who wouldn’t a story that’s about a man and his dog being lone survivors in a city and facing monsters. It was pretty awesome if you ask me!
Now it’s time to get to the blood and gore. Although there wasn’t really that many deaths in the movie we still see some good scenes where Robert is killing some vampires. Honestly you really didn’t need kills to enjoy the movie, there was a lot of blood, mixed in with some scares, top that off with a little bit of suspense and you have a pretty entertaining movie that will keep the viewer on the edge of their seat the whole time.
Overall I absolutely loved this movie. Will Smith did an excellent job with his role and basically carrying the movie. The story will keep you entertained and there will be some moments that make you jump. The blood,scare, and action scenes where very well done and did fabulous things for this movie. If you haven’t watched this movie yet, I highly recommend that you go watch it. You wont regret it! I guarantee you that you wont want to turn away from the television.
I give this movie a 9.5/10
