| Omega Man's spectacular remake with top notch performance by Will Smith
In 2o12, New York post-holocaust caused by a virus, Robert Neville(Will Smith) is the sole survivor along with his dog . He's accompanied records his wife(Sally Richardson) and son developed by means of various flashbacks. Neville is immune to the effects of a biologically engineered plague and fights those aren't , an army of blood-suckers victims bent on destroying what's left of the world and constantly harass him. The pale-skinned mutants are led by sneering and creepy leader, they want to eradicate what is left of mankind, but they feel is responsible for the disaster and this, of course, includes Neville. But Neville isn't the sole survivor, early appear a few survivors, a woman(Alice Braga) and his son.

Strong intrigue and suspense with considerable violence based on novel by Richard Matheson , which is also the basis for the film ¨The last Man on Earth¨ directed by Sidney Salkow and starred by Vincent Price . Furthermore, the classic version(1971) with Charlton Heston and directed by Boris Sagal .

This is a blockbuster production manages to convey an eerie atmosphere to dismay. The film packs noisy action, tension, thrills, terror and is quite entertaining. Exceptional performance by Will Smith , usual player of spectacular Sci-fi movies(Men in black, Independence day, I robot). Appears uncredited in special cameo as a Doctor, Emma Thomson. Interesting screenplay by Akiva Goldsman based on script written for ¨Omega man¨. Atmospheric, adequate musical score fitting to action and suspense by James Newton Howard. The motion picture is professionally directed by Francis Lawrence in his second film, but he's usually video-clips director(for Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, among others) and occasionally filmmaker(Constantine). Rating : Above average and well worth watching.

Quotes

Alternate Versions

The ending to the Alternate Theatrical Version varies from the original ending. Instead of blowing himself and the hemocytes up with a grenade, Neville discovers that the hemocytes actually came for the female he captured earlier in the movie. He relieves her of the cure and returns her to the hemocytes. Afterwards, the hemocytes leave and let Neville, Anna, and Ethan be. The three then are seen leaving New York heading to Vermont's safe zone with Anna broadcasting a message telling all other survivors that she is with Neville and is heading to the safe zone.
