i am legend

i thoroughly enjoyed this film. i liked the pace, i liked the way it looked, i was very surprised by how much will smith's acting has improved since he was in philadelphia born and raised. in fact this film was going great... until about 3/4s of the way through when suddenly it took a terrible and annoying nose-dive towards an ending that completely ruined the work of the first 90 minutes. i've narrowed it down to the point when the girl appears and pulls neville out of his car after he tries to kill himself with zombies. dammit, it was going so well. i'm just gonna go and read the book instead. by all accounts it was a much better ending, and the actual real story sounds better too. so close to being a great movie though, just let down by a terrible end. ooh, and a HUGE reliance on CGI when makeup & puppetry would've been far more scary.
