Some days it doesn’t take that much effort to imagine the end of the world. The 2007 Warner Bros. release I Am Legend brings to life the frightening idea that mankind’s own hubris will bring about the destruction we fear. Will Smith shines as Robert Neville, possibly the last survivor of a plague that has eradicated the earth’s population. Neville is valiantly trying to develop an antidote to the miracle cure that started it all while at the same time fighting off the feral Dark Seekers who viciously slaughter any living thing they find. I Am Legend is the third film adaptation of the classic science fiction book by Richard Matheson. The first, The Last Man on Earth starred Vincent Price, and 1971’s The Omega Man featured Charlton Heston.
