*Direction:


Francis Lawrance** does an absolute justice to a script which really deserves a standing ovation. The major quotient of this movie lies in its sets, special effects, cinemetography. A stunning 10/10 for direction.


*Performances:


*The movie does not deviate from its major character, i.e Will Smith who outperforms.. And surely guarantees; Science fiction is also his genre. There were only 4 characters in the movie, including a dog. All performed first rate.


*Positives:


*Now, How many of you can imagine the following:


# Empty 'Times Square' with all the LCD's, lights broken, All the symbols, sign boards rotten?


# A HALF broken Brooklyn Bridge, and also a sequence of its destruction?


# Lions hunting for deers and other animals in open NY?


# Golf on a US Air Force Plane and Naval Base?


# A city without no people?


Well, If you can and if you couldn't. This movie will redefine whatever you thought about being alone. The movie has absolutely path breaking cinematography, Excellent scene execution, good performances, a good plot. In short it has everything what is required for making a good film.


*Negatives:


*After a good share a positives, The movie also has its share of negatives too. There are many scripting flaws in the movie.




  1. Electricity - Most of the electrcical equipments are shown running.




  2. Fuel to run vehicles.




  3. Clean houses




  4. Food.






Now these are some questions, which really remain unanswered.


The ending is well justified, still it remains a sad ending.


Overall^^..I Am Legend is a excellent sci-fi movie after a long time, If you like good action, thrills, scary moments and fun. This is a must watch for you.


PS: DVD Cost = Rs. 599.00 [Inclusive Of All Taxes]
