Just watched I Am Legend on X'mas eve & what a major dissapointment this movie turned out to be. I don't even know how to begin with. Let start with the basic story of the movie shall we.
Basically it's about a scientist played by Will Smith who is the last human survivor living in New York City & is surrounded by victims of some sort of a plague or virus who have mutated into a half vampires creature like. Of course as the story went on, finding cure, surviving the horror & looking for other survivors will eventually played along just like all the other zombies movie such as Dawn Of The Dead (the best) & Resident Evil (the worst) which is so typical.
I want to know how it happens & not after that. I've seen alot of this kind of movies already & there is always no explanation on it.
As for the creatures, the special effect is so terrible that it spoil the whole movie. It looks like a copy & paste version from the movie The Mummy. They might as well hire a group of people with make-up on or even use animatronics. Luckily Will Smith comes to save the day. If it's not for him, this movie will be a major flop. Try putting other B grade actor as a major cast & with those lousy effect & no story line at all, you basically get yourself a typical direct to DVD sort of movie.
I'm really impress with Will's performance especially during the 'dog scene' which is so great to watch & touching at the same time. People in the cinema are so fully concentrating on that particular scene & in my opinion, is one of the best moment in the movie. I'm not going to reveal any major plot here but I am going to talk about a sequence which happen before the 'dog scene'. Basically it's a scene involving Will who went all crazy shooting at a mannequin, buildings & shouting & screaming at the same time & eventually got himself caught hanging upside down & fainted.
Oh ya, the reason why I've mentioned half vampires for these creatures is because they behave like one, love blood & hate the sun light. So in order for them to roam the streets & set up traps to catch Will, they must wait till the sun is gone & this sequence is so weird that I myself don't even know how to describe it. The way how he ended up getting himself caught in that trap is so lame. I know after spending 3 years alone will make you go crazy or frustrated but I'm sure the people who made this movie could come out with something better than this. I guess only for those who have watched the movie will know what I mean.
Another typical moments in this movie are the cheap shock. Quiet..... suddenly BAM! Quiet...... suddenly BAM! This is not scary, it just makes you jump up from your seat cause you got shock. Bloody hate it. One last thing before I end my review, why must horror movies need to add some cheap jokes along the way? I know it will tone down the horror moment of the film where audiences get to take their break but what kind of a horror movie if there's a joke in it? Semi-horror?
Guess I've said too much already. Ok, for those who's thinking of watching this movie, try not to expect a number of great special effects, story lines or action sequences, but instead try watching it because of the fact that Will Smith & his dog are the cast & I'm sure that you will definitely going to enjoy yourself with your love one, family & friends.

Just watched The Warlords yesterday night & I must say that the movie is quite good although there are some areas that need improvement. Lets start with the good part first shall we.
I really impress with Andy performance in this movie cause he has given something that you normally would not see him in his other movies. You just love every shot of his on screen.
Jet Li still looks great but basically you have seen him in this kind of performance on his other movies such as Hero or Fearless. So to me, it is not a major breakthrough for him.
As for Takeshi, well, I haven't actually watched alot of his previous movies but overall he looks great & I love the role that he played. On my opinion, I guess its really suits him.
The movie begins with 3 mens who become sworn brothers & on their way to a tragic & sad ending. There are certain scenes in the movie that are really emotional that will basically left you in tears. I'm hearing people crying in the cinema & that's prove how emotional this film can be. Not sure if they are crying because they wanted to get the hell out of the cinema to have their refund or what. Well, I'm not going into details of how the story goes cause I do not want to give away spoiler.
Ok, here comes the bad part. The battle scene is really a major disaster. I don't think it's really well executed. You can sense that there is something wrong with it but not sure how to explain. It just doesn't seem right to me. Think is the choreography. One major thing that spoil the moment of a great war fight for an asian film is always the cast for the extras. You can alway tell that they are basically an extras acting in the background, shouting & waving their hands & you just couldn't put yourself in the situation that you are actually watching a real war scene. No 100% effort & lack of energy & courage in it.
They really should train them well in order to delivered a great scene especially in this case, a war scene. Some other scenes are so typically being shot just to amplified the situation & is not done in a natural way, scene such as a little baby crying with a scar on the face & men crying for help from a far distance & eventually left to die. I guess only for those who have watched the film will know what I mean. Anyway, if they have shorten the length for the war scene & instead concentrate more on the story line for each of the characters, I guess it would have make the movie an even much better outcome.
Well, overall this movie is really worth checking out. Try to forget about wanting to watch a movie with a great war fight scene or kung fu action by Jet Li cause it does not have any of those qualities. Just try to watch it instead of the great performances & emotional attached in this movie & you will definitely going to have a great time!

Based on the popular graphic novel, 30 Days Of Night basically is about a bunch of vampires invading a small town somewhere in Alaska & start sucking everybody there.
One thing interesting & different about this movie than the rest of other vampires movies is, well, these vampires actually do not encourage their victims to turn, you know, vampires bite you & you become one of them, instead they will chop off their victim's head to prevent the transformation once they had the taste of their blood.
Hahaha.... selfish yet abit funny don't you think. This way you won't be able to raise an army of vampires & make the killing easier & faster. Well, maybe they just want to have the entire town all by themselves, you'll never know. I guess only the writers will knew.
Ok, one thing from the movie that I'm not really sure if it's true or not. The reason the title call 30 Days Of Night is because every once a year, the town will experiences a complete darkness for a month. That's mean no sun but only moon. Is there such a place? Hmmm.... too lazy to find out the truth from the internet so I guess I will never know the answer. Hopefully they will mention something about this on the DVD.
If it's true, that would be scary! One whole month without sunshine. Hahaha... but I think there will not be any vampires right? Are there? Does vampire exist? The vampires version in this movie actually does not look like a vampire to me. The way they behave & their movement sort of look like a zombie to me. I mean fast type zombie that can talk.
After awhile, this movie feels like a combination of movie such as Sin City & Dawn Of The Dead. Maybe that is the whole idea. Well, there is this scene from the movie that I really liked which basically involve a group of people hiding & hearing long distance screaming & gunshot. I feel that its really build up the scariness of the situation.
Overall, it's a one hell of a bloody ride for us & we really enjoy ourselves alot although there is a lack of characters build up & story line. If you are those typical bloody gory not to mention ultra violence type of audience, this is definitely the right movie for you.
While for those who experience heart attack condition, kindly avoid this movie. There is this scene where my mum actually close her eyes cause she finds it too violence. I'm not going to spoil it here so you all will just have to go & watch it in the cinema or DVD if you have missed it.
