I AM LEGEND JOURNAL # 1
The last movie I saw in theaters was I Am Legend. I saw this movie on Christmas Eve with my little brother Jack, my dad and my three uncles. It is kind of family tradition. I thought the movie was really scary, but then again I was the only screaming in the whole theater. I thought it was a really good movie, but I also am the type of movie watcher who thinks just about any movie is good. The movie is about Will Smith and his dog that are the only living beans in the city of Manhattan. The reason why they are the only living ones left on the island is because a women thought she found the cure for caner but in the end it ended up killing over 6,000,000 people. Will spends day after day to try and find why these people died but it takes him his whole life to figure out why. Will and his dog finally come along humans who were still living with the disease. There are other living things on the island, but they don’t want to help Will and his dog. They want to kill them, but they can only come out when is sun is down. Will finds a way to capture one of these odd living things and does experiment after experiment trying to help it survive. Towards the end of the movie a woman and her son come to help Will and his dog. Will and his dog end up dying but they find a cure to fix the humans still infected with the disease and Will is remembered as a hero.
Critics say that I am Legend was a horrible movie. The reasons why this movie had such a bad review were because of the ending. In the end of the movie Will Smith found his butterfly to cure the people. But by curing the others he had to give his own life to do so. After he died the cure was then brought to a place of healthy people who survived the disease in the first place. Will was remembered as a hero from then on. Critics said that the ending was not well though up and that it let movie viewers hanging. The critics also say that the movie was taken from a few other movies but the movie didn’t give any credit to the movies before this one.
On the other side, critics said the movie was never boring. The movie was full of action from killing and helicopters blowing up. I agree with that statement and thought the movie was very good. I loved every minuet of the movie and I don’t think the movie gets enough credit.
