This movie looks good.



The trailer gives away NOTHING about the story, but I'll tell you what it's about in a spoiler tag (WARNING, IT WILL GIVE AWAY THE PLOT):

Spoiler


I'm predicting a twist at the end.

Will Smith's films never really disappoint me, though that one film did - Hancock.

I've given a spoiler warning, if you highlight the black it will tell you the story but give away the plot.

yea, i wasn't paying attention...i read that right after i posted...interesting concept, but i still feel i need a bit more info. i usually like movies that are based on original concepts now because they're so rare...most big money movies nowadays are sequels, remakes, or some interpretation of something that's already been done...

Holy crap.

I bet it's going to be full of emotion.

He obviously falls in love with the girl.

Then he finds himself in a conundrum, he wants to stay alive to be with her, but if he lives, she dies. If he dies she lives. If he gives her his organ, say a kidney that he doesn't need, she lives, he lives, but everyone else will die.

Going to be interesting.

Look pretty good, but the 1:30 mark would be one of the main reasons I see it.
Basketball Reasons...

It's rated PG-13 bro. I know, it excited me too.

Wait in your "spoiler", you say you "might be wrong". So is it a spoiler or a prediction?

No, it is concrete. That is the plot.

I got it from the script.

I should add though, I know nothing else about the movie. Of course he will fall in love with the girl and then become conflicted.

All I know is what is in my spoiler warning.

will smith was good, till he made I AM Legend and completely ruined the book. then hancock the movie he made because he passed up the matrix, and now Oldboy that he will for sure ruin by having his writer do it. scientology is warping his mind.

Pardon my ignorance.


the movie was awesome till the end. the movie completely missed the whole reason why its called " I Am Legend" it was like they ran out of money and time and will smith said,"screw it, we will end the movie here because i have to go"

it was a poor ending to a good book, even The Omega Man got the ending right.
