Short and... sweet?
This is one of the four "animated comics" on the I Am Legend DVD, taking place in the same universe as the film. The style in which the plot is told is fitting. Kept in b/w, with little color, and movement being minimal. There is not a single word spoken in this(unless the chorus stuff means something), it's all in the music, the sound effects, the cinematography, the editing, and of course, the images. The design is all great. There is no real humor in this, but it is a dark story. However, it is not as tragic and devastating as it intends to be, and with that being the main goal of this, it is a little disappointing. Well, you have to be really compelling to be terribly effective in a mere three minutes. I am intrigued by the fact that this, and the other three, were developed by Jada Pinkett Smith, Will's wife; I had no idea she was so inclined. Perhaps I am the last to find out, I don't know. This is more violent than the movie itself, I would say, though that is the only objectionable material. There is obviously no strong language. I recommend this to anyone who liked the flick. 6/10
