I AM LEGEND Powerful from beginning to end

"I Am Legend" is one of the best, according to my perspective.

If you like fast driving, big explosions and mutant-screaming-zombie things then "I Am Legend" is the perfect movie for you.

"I Am Legend" is powerful from the beginning to the end.

Countless times, I found myself on the edge of my chair from one scene to another.

Brilliant action scenes and an amazing plot make this movie soar over the movies I have reviewed this past year. Suspenseful and climactic; the movie is never dull.

The opening of the movie throws you into the plot of the movie with only one man left on earth.

Will Smith plays Robert Neville the main -- and really only character -- besides the creatures that lurk in the dark.

With no one left on earth, as far as Neville can see, the island of Manhattan is his for the taking.

The creatures were originally humans who became victims of a mutated virus, which was supposed to be a cure for cancer.

Out of 40 billion people, one billion were immune to the virus. But, the mutants killed those people because food was hard to find.

The mutant people are allergic to the sun, so they only come out at dark.

You can imagine this leads to some exciting moments with Neville racing to get to his home.

He is determined to find a cure for the creatures.

One of my favorite scenes is the beginning when he is driving a 2008 Mustang Shelby GT500 to hunt down some deer running through the streets of Manhattan.

This movie is rated PG-13, although exciting and heart-pounding action in this movie might be too scary for some.

"I Am Legend" is a must see and, to me, a must buy.
