I Am Legend is a 2007 post-apocalyptic science fiction. It is the third feature film adaptation of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel of the same name following 1964’s The Last Man on Earth and 1971’s The Omega Man. Will Smith plays virologist Robert Neville, who is immune to a vicious man-made virus originally created to cure cancer. He works to create a remedy while living in Manhattan in 2012, a city inhabited by violent victims of the virus. He is the only survivor trying to outlast the mutated victims of the plague who have become blood-thirsty creatures. He sends out daily radio messages in a desperate plea to find any other survivors. But time is running out for Neville as the legions of infected watch his every move from the safety of the shadows, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. They, too, long to learn the secret that lurks in Neville’s blood, though they will have to take caution while attempting to procure it because Neville will sooner die attempting to slay every last one of them than willingly giving up a single drop.
