Synopsis: - taken from Golden Screen Cinema
Robert Neville (Will Smith) is a brilliant scientist, but even he could not contain the terrible virus that was unstoppable, incurable…and manmade. Somehow immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City…and maybe the world. But he is not alone. He is surrounded by “the Infected”—victims of the plague who have mutated into carnivorous beings who can only exist in the dark and who will devour or infect anyone or anything in their path.

For three years, Neville has spent his days scavenging for food and supplies and faithfully sending out radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. All the while, the Infected lurk in the shadows, watching Neville’s every move, waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind’s last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But his blood is also what The Infected hunt, and Neville knows he is outnumbered and quickly running out of time.

My thoughts 我的感言:
Over all, nice story+music+cinematography+development+set up... until the ending. A bit too "miracle"...

besides that, the CG for those "dark seeker" (mutated human) quite badly done for my taste. I was told the 1971's verion - The Omega Man has a better make up using live actors.

Will Smith did a good job soloing the movie (he's the last human in the world, remember? ^_^"). A few emotional scenes caught me, like the part Sam died, and another part when he was preaching on Bob Marley's legacy.

however, I did enjoy the movie. It worthed 4/5 stars for me.


I managed to get a free pass to "premier screening" tonight from a friend - .

Because it's a "premier screening" 2 days before the actual release, the lucky patrons were required to go through strict security check by the organisers and movie distributor.

Rules printed on sight are:
01) No electronic devices are allow to bring into to the screening hall, i.e. mobile phones (with or without camera features), laptops, music portalbe players, handheld gaming devices, etc...);
02) during the screening, there will be security personnels patroling & monitoring the movie patrons during the show for any illegal recording;

You were also constantly reminded on Rule #01 from a PA system, that you also need to deposit all your electronic gadgets at the security booth. They'll put your items in a plastic bag, stapled, and you'll be given a number tag to the bag. And you'll suppose to claim it after the screening with the number.

There were 2-tier security check upon entering the screening hall:
1st tier - 1 guy will scan your body with a portable scanner;
2nd tier - upon clearence from 1st tier, they'll check your bags/pouch/shopping bags, etc...

After the show finish, there's already a booth with multiple lanes, right outside the exit. Lanes were divided according to number range, e.g. lane 1 - 0001 - 500, lane 2 - 501 -1000, etc... to speed up the process and keeping the crowd in order.

It's a well organised security protocol, not forget to mention the security personnels were well-trained and polite.


Finally, I would like to thank the organising/participated parties like Golden Screen Cinema, eMove, Spotlite, Young Express, hitz.fm, era, 8TV, 星洲日報 Sin Chew Daily, hot magazine, 3C Digital... for a wonderful+good "premier screening" experience!

Sir George said...

any rating from you?

mr-penman said...

I give 4/5.

reason, the movie managed to give me the feeling being alone in this world...


Tattfoo&Ensze said...

I agree with wildchild, the mutant look like zombie to me too, from the trailer. It is just another zombie movie? Will looks heroic and cool and the dog is a good element to be in the movie.

mr-penman said...

no, not zombie. -_-"

they are mutated human, they can think, communicate, and organise.

besides that... they are strong, and comes with perfect body.

However, they can't talk, and they can't expose to a bit of Sunlight.

Where as zombie is rotten+mindless...
