One of the most frustrating movies I've ever seen. What begins as a well-made, suspenseful piece of post-apocalyptic horror suddenly (in a scene that feels completely out of character for the protagonist) turns into a cliched, idiotic, preachy joke of a movie that claims the salvation of mankind is organized religion. What an irritating piece of crap.

The zombies are we and the virus is human selfishness. Neville is the New Will, which will save the Planet. The deserted city is in fact the future and probably Vancouver will look the same after the present feverish constructions are finished to fill up the space with a crowd of zombies. The future is not for the zombies; it's for a man with a new will. Hey, guys, when will you be focusing on the meaning of a story and not the sound effects and the literal story itself? The New Will man (Wil Smith is one) will see the meaning, which is the essence of every good story, like this one. From the comments I see that tne Average Joe crowd does not think. They have no idea that the present Civilization based on wasting resources, using the motor vehicle and destroying the Earth cannot go on for long. The Wise Men of old and of today have planned a different future, which will be sustainable, but this is possible only with a much-much smaller human population. Shortage of oil comes before 2030, and the renewable energies will not be able to replace the lack. It has been announced several times that the biggest plague ever is coming, and that will be the beginning of the biggest-ever change in human history. On the ruins of this Civilization a new one will be built. Our biig cities will be abandoned and given back to Nature. The human society will be totally separated from Nature; there will be smaller dome cities as we are shown in Logan' Run (the movie) - there you can see the ruins of the abandoned old cities. The future society will be totally controlled and planned and managed by the Wise Men who wrote about it as the Kingdom of God in the Holy Books. That will be the Kingdom of the New Type of Man: unselfish and peaceful, a community member and good worker. Neville mans the Nerw Will to create that New World.

Decent Scfy movie, but not at all scary!

IS IT BLOODY? I HOPE NOT

The copy that was checked out to me was not actually a Blu-ray. The Library Blu-ray checkout label was apparently accidentally applied to a Widescreen DVD copy.

3 and 1/2 stars for camera work, production design and Will Smith's performance. Computer generated zombies? Really? Sometimes I feel that CGI technology is a waste of money for movies, good for video games though. The movie's at times a bit slow moving and lets face it it, it's a depressing subject matter but, this version doesn't have the unpredictability of the Omega Man, which had eerie cheesiness.

A very good movie full of sad, funny, serious, and noble moments, though with a slightly disappointing ending.

I was like the last person to see this movie. I found it to be sad. It needed more realistic zombies (or whatever those things were). Way too much CGI. Will Smith acting was terrific but I was looking for more action/ horror.

THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER! NOTHING CAN BEAT IT!
