Staring - Will Smith, Alice Braga

Directed By - Francis Lawrence

Director Francis Lawrence attempts to create a zombie thriller in

deserted New York City with Will Smith as the Last man standing.  And

his attempt at least from my point of view turned out to be a damn good

one. Except for the little unexpected and unsatisfying ending I thought

the movie is a must watch for those who don't mind zombies running

around and screaming like hell.

The movie kicks off with the discovery of a virus that can cure

Cancer. Unfortunately the contagious virus instead creates havoc and

takes out millions of people in the year 2009(I think it is 588

million).  Come 2012, Will Smith as Dr. Robert Neville(a former

scientist) in deserted New York City with his dog Sam. The movie takes

us along Will's pretty lonely life and how he tries to keep himself

busy all day by playing golf, renting movies from a DVD store(he's got

a mannequin setup at the cash counter and some mannequins as

customers). He even sends out a message on AM frequency to notify any

other survivors of his existence and that he is willing to offer help.

As dark arrives Dr. Robert Neville completely seals out his home and

hides himself with his dog in the bathtub. All sorts of weird noises

can be heard. The zombies who incidentally were humans before getting

infected by the virus venture out only in the dark. They have lost all

their human instincts and are real blood thirsty and hungry.

So that’s how Dr. Robert Neville's daily life goes on. Incidentally

he also has a high tech lab where is he working on finding a cure for

the virus. Oh! I forgot to mention Robert is immune to the virus and

that he does not want to leave NY as he believes that it is ground zero

and this where he can find a cure for the virus.  Without going any

further and disclosing any more of the plot the rest of the movie is

all about how Will tries to survive amongst the Zombies and find a


Will Smith as Dr. Robert Neville does real justice to his role. He

makes us experience the deserted New York City, his lonely experience

full of fear and hope. He succeeds in making the audience feel that he

is mankind's last and best hope. Director Francis Lawrence succeeds in

giving us a fair share of chills and thrills. If you could just forgive

the slightly sloppy ending and give full marks to Will's spot on

performance then the movie is a must watch for all horror/sci-fi flick
