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


cure.


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


fans.
