I AM LEGEND is a down-beat science fiction thriller about a scientist who is the only survivor in post-apocalyptic New York which has become overrun by zombie-like mutant humans.


There is sustained threat as the hero is pursued and attacked by mutant humans. The hero shoots, blows up and mows down the mutant humans in his car. The action includes fleeting shadowy images of blood pools and blood spray on a wall in a dark abandoned building; suggestion of the mutants chomping on a victim; impressions of the hero stabbing a mutant with a screwdriver and a stab injury to the leg as the hero falls. The film has a fantastical setting and the violence is generally without graphic detail.

There is a dark tone throughout, with a lack of reassuring outcome. The film also features dramatised sequences of a lioness capturing a deer, a dog being attacked, and animal death.
