I am Legend

The movie starts with a News interview of a doctor who found cure for cancer. The movie moves on to “3 years later”. You find Dr. Robert Neville (Will Smith) living with his pet dog Samantha in a deserted New York. Presumably he is the last man on earth. The cancer cure has become a viral infection killing everybody. Wait! And transforming others into Zombie like night creatures. Neville broadcasts everday on the radio in the hope that if somebody is alive they would get in touch with him. He spends his day hunting for food and nights in his well defended (?) home hidden. He is also working on a cure for this disease. Does he find a cure? So how does the last man on earth become a legend, that is the story. After a point of time the story seems wary and loses the interest.   The trailer seemed so great but the movie is not. There are actually no twists and turns and you can quite expect what is going to come.
