“I Am Legend” is a 2007 post-apocalyptic science fiction film directed by Francis Lawrence and starring Will Smith as Robert Neville, a scientist who is immune to a virus that has wiped out most of humanity and turned the remaining survivors into aggressive, zombie-like creatures.
The film is set in New York City, three years after the virus has decimated the population. Neville is the last known survivor in the city and spends his days searching for a cure to the virus while also trying to avoid the infected. He is accompanied only by his loyal dog, Sam.
As Neville’s isolation and loneliness begin to take a toll on his mental health, he is forced to confront his own humanity and the possibility that he may not be the only survivor left.
“I Am Legend” was praised for Smith’s performance, as well as its visual effects and suspenseful atmosphere. However, the film received criticism for its departure from the source material, Richard Matheson’s novel of the same name, and for its reliance on CGI effects. Despite this, the film was a commercial success, grossing over $585 million worldwide.
