    Did anybody else see this movie yet? Personally i think its the best movie this year, and one of the best movies i have seen in my short twenty-one years of existence.

    I'd like to see it, it looks really good.


    But then again I'm a sucker for anything with Will Smith in it.:eek:

    It was all right, certainly not the best movie I've seen by any stretch of the imagination, though. Will Smith did an excellent job with what he was given. Without going into detail, there were certain aspects of the story that were never resolved. That left me less than satisfied. I also wasn't thrilled with the ending. I give it a good, but not great.

    Just saw the movie a few hours ago, and it made me jump a lot. I had to change my pants eight times....just kidding. But yeah, not sure I would call it great, the ending was lacking. It was definitely something new and different though, I'll give it 7.4 out of 10.

    I saw it a earlier tonight. I really enjoyed it, Will Smith did a great job. Overall I'd say between 8/8.5 out of 10.

    Say it over to yourself. It doesn't sound as powerful as I am Legend.

    I need a new phone as the lotion I had in my pocket exploded during the movie and oozed out all over my phone.

    Despite what happened, it was a good movie. I made the mistake though of following the movie and them filming because most of the scenes I've seen before. Either in a trailer or watching them film.

    I think it was a good story line... I have an anxiety disorder, so the constant surprises weighed pretty heavy on me and made me physically ill. Needless to say, I could have done without that part. But it was good.

    Some jerk in our theater was yakking on his cell phone during the movie. :mad: I went and grabbed the manager who had a little talk with him.

    Aside from the distractions, I liked it.

    He is Legend - guess it is not related.

    I hadn't heard about this film which is very odd, doesn't seem to be advertised much over here. Seems interesting, will put it down on my:

    should go and watch but probably won't and then may rent the DVD list™

    it was a good movie absolutely not the best ever but good enough, lots of things unresolved and many many things that I think did not make sense to me.

    The movie was cool...I like how they didn't have Will Smith acting all super hero plus the story flowed right.

    8/10


    Bless

    i've been lucky and haven't been in a movie with some body on the cell phone. but i don't go to the movies that often. $$$$$$$.

    I liked how the movie went as well. I never could understand why he was trying to get a deer. He had plenty of food. Guess he wanted some variety. But i could go on and on about the movie and all the short comings. But you could do that with any movie. And ruin what it is.

    I wish the ending was a little longer, but im glad it did have some what of a happy ending.

    I have not seen the movie yet, but if it's a happy ending.. then it sounds like a major departure from the book. Typical Hollywood.

    From what I read, the budget seemed to fall apart and the Zombipyres didn't look so good.

    Personally, I'm going to wait for this on DVD.

    The movie was alright, but the book was really much better.

    Fantastic movie - I'm not sure why some people don't like the ending .. or that they didn't explain much of the stuff. Well, it wasn't a 3 hour movie.. and a trilogy.. it's a little hard to pack everything in a short time. If you want explanations.. go watch Lord of the rings.. lol. Will smith did a great job, as usual. I'm glad it wasn't gory like all the movies tend to be - it used a lot of suspense.. sound textures for the scare factor.

    What I really cannot stand is stupid people talking and laughing when it is absolutely not required. Action scenes - everyone's quiet.. but the minute there's some emotion.. or drama involved.. or silence.. sheesh! :mad:

    i really enjoyed the movie. when i first saw the previews, i notice the 07 shelby gt500......so i had to go see it. at first i thought they were going to show what is happening and then how he gets through it, not flashbacks (sorry if i spoil it for anyone) didnt like how sam died though.

    9/10:D
