With two small kids and lots of fatigue, I don’t see movies very often. A friend of mine had a copy of the Will Smith version of I Am Legend, and I finally finished watching it last night (I fell asleep first go ‘round).
I’m very disappointed in the ending. It was so very Hollywood. I’ve read Matheson’s classic several times in my life, and the way the film distorted it into a hero’s bittersweet ending was very disappointing.
Is America really that hopeless that the viewing public can’t stomach a dark ending? The effects were great, but it barely resembled its inspiration.
Was it really a Scientology vehicle and I somehow missed that implication?
