In the year 2012, Will Smith plays Robert Neville - the last man left alive in New York after a cure for cancer developed three years earlier mutated and killed off almost every human on the planet, and turned most that were left after that into vampirous like creatures.
As Neville lives alone with only his dog Sam for company, he attempts to find some cure for the virus, whilst dealing with his existence alone in a now overgrown and wild New York City.
Primarily it's Will Smith's show as he has almost all the screen time and has to take his character across several different stages, and he does a decent job but even at it's relatively short runtime it still feels that there's a point where any exploration of the character of Neville gives way to the action movie requirements of the film it is, leading to an ending that is typically changed from the source material and doesn't have the heft it think it does. Visual effects are good but some shots have aged in the process of making the city a mix of nature and concrete.
An OK film, but the five years since it was released have shown up certain shortcomings that drag it down.
