    more from this reviewer

    Alone at the bottom of the food chain,

    Usually I will read the book first but in this case seeing the trailer being played over and over stimulated my curiosity to the point of no return. Being a New Yorker made the whole experience really fun and interesting; recognizing sights I pass on my way to work every day with an eerie feeling of abandonment was something totally different. I would often think in my head about how crowded it gets and how I wish people would just go away but seeing it all empty and overgrowing with grass like a wild safari was worse than I could have imagined. I guess its better the way it is than suffering eternity alone the same way Robert Neville has. <BR/><BR/>Alone except for the companionship of Samantha, the loyal German Shepherd, Neville is hunting wild deer and gathering food growing amok through the city while punctually seeking shelter as soon as the day light ends. When darkness approaches so do the mutated bodies that were once human but now reduced to vampire like creatures who savagely will hunt and devour any living creature. His only mission left is finding the cure than can turn the beasts back into the living before he goes mad form being alone. Things start going wrong when Neville stops being the hunter and starts becoming the hunted, the dark alleys that look ominous contain something that is keen ob bringing him down. His daily routing gets disturbed and he can no longer live peacefully with the hopes of one day saving everyone, he needs to find the cure fast or he too will succumb to the dire fate that all others have met. <BR/><BR/>Visually stunning the movies makes you care for Neville, who was very well portrayed by Smith. He was alone but not overly distressed or crazed, he exercised, rented videos, cooked, watched Shrek and tried to stay as close to being sane as possible. The scary parts made me jump and yell at the TV the same way guys do when they watch sports but overall it was a fun and wild experience and it really made me want to read the book to see what the original idea for this story was. I wish there was less CG effects these days but so many movies are full of them that one can't not see them for just this one reason. Other than that this was a real blast and I will want to see it again soon. <BR/><BR/><BR/>- Kasia S.

    Possibly the saddest movie I have ever seen....

    I actually cried during this movie, and, for those who know me, that's really saying a lot. I mean, the movie gives such a feeling of hopelessness and inevitability and yet, you can't help rooting for the main character. If the movie was made in able to leave the audience with a certain mix of feelings, then it most definitely succeeded. It's almost depressing, and yet, thought provoking. Funny, but in a dark kind of comedic way. Suspenseful, and yet, there really isn't that much action. It was frightening, yet heart-warming. Disturbing and adorable. Although not a movie you could watch over and over again, it was beautifully crafted, a story weaved with many different emotions. I think it was very well done.
