Within the 2007 model of “I Am Legend,” Dr. Neville does handle to create a treatment and efficiently passes the treatment to a survivor named Anna (Alice Braga) and a younger boy named Ethan (Charlie Tahan), and hides them in a coal chute at the back of the lab after a gaggle of Darkseekers tracks all of them down. The Darkseeker alpha male breaks via the glass of the lab, and realizing that the treatment is extra necessary than anything, Neville sacrifices himself, killing the Darkseekers within the course of, by unleashing a grenade. The treatment, Anna, and Ethan are capable of make it out to security due to his sacrifice and go the treatment off to the army stationed at a survivor’s camp, so a steadiness on Earth might in the end be restored.
To place it kindly, the ending of this adaptation of “I Am Legend” is a reasonably primary interpretation of a Hollywood hero’s ending. Neville is a flawed character with seemingly nothing left to reside for who provides up his life to save lots of the remainder of the world, a way of someway atoning for the errors he feels he is made in his life. The individualist actions of 1 man had been sufficient to fully change the course of humanity, which sounds nice on paper however is in the end a gutless ending in comparison with the intention of Richard Matheson’s unique novel. Thankfully, “I Am Legend” did movie an alternate ending quite a bit nearer to the supply materials, which appears to be the route Akiva Goldsman goes to take with the upcoming sequel.
