3 stars out of 5 -- [An] agreeably funky refit, which is part post-apocalyptic thriller, part requiem for the '60s.
Not bad, but far from a classic. Full Review
Peppered with some sharp, even amusing dialogue, the story temporarily shelves the heavy allegory and slips into good, slam-bang suspense. But it doesn't last. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 7/10 -- A breezy film about the death of mankind in a way that only the '70s could have provided. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Rating: 2/4 -- Another misfired adaptation of Richard Matheson's fine science fiction novel I Am Legend. Full Review
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Despite not having aged particularly well, the opening sections of this sci-fi allegory remain potent, although the rest of its apocalyptic storyline is decidedly leaden. Full Review
Rating: 4/10 -- ...not an awful film, just a remarkably dull one. Full Review
The last survivor of germ warfare hides from nocturnal mutants in a fortified mansion, gathering supplies by day from a deserted L.A. whose streets are strewn with the post-apocalyptic flotsam of the super-funky '70s. Based on Richard Matheson's novel I AM A LEGEND, made before as THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (1964) with Vincent Price.
In the aftermath of a bacteriological war, the future of mankind hangs in the balance. Only a chosen few have survived the mutating effects of germ warfare unharmed. A small enclave of healthy, stalwart resistors has formed a camp where, for the moment, they live peacefully. The other human survivors are terribly disfigured mutants who walk the earth at night in search of prey.
