What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Helen Herimbi Yep, I Am Legend is definitely worth seeing but, unfortunately, it isn't good enough to make the top 100 films list — anywhere.
Carina Chocano High-octane apocalyptic joyride.
Bruce Dennill Basically 28 Days Later moved to New York, Will Smith may have opted to take this on purely because his main competition for onscreen attention is a German Shepherd. To be fair, though, the dog holds its own.
Barry Ronge Pretty hard to find much to praise.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert The movie works well while it's running, although it raises questions that later only mutate in our minds.
Adam Nayman What we have here is about two-thirds great and one-third awful, and in that order.
James Berardinelli There's a key event that occurs just past the hour mark and, after that, the movie feels more like a typical Hollywood adventure than the introspective, thought-provoking production that graces the screens for the first 65 minutes.
Peter Travers What you need to know is that Big Willie has no problem holding the screen.
Tomatometer Succeeds largely on the strength of Will Smith's mesmerizing performance.
