Based on Richard Math­e­son’s 1954 novel, this film sees Will Smith de­liver a mov­ing per­for­mance as the last man on Earth af­ter a virus has trans­formed the pop­u­la­tion into blood­thirsty crea­tures. In a dev­as­tated Man­hat­tan, mil­i­tary sci­en­tist Robert Neville (Smith) wan­ders the streets from dawn to dusk, strug­gling against lone­li­ness, bore­dom and the fad­ing hope of find­ing a cure or other sur­vivors. But at night he has a dif­fer­ent or­deal, as the dark­ness be­longs to the once-hu­man “in­fect­eds”. Some car­toon­ish CGI and a man­gled screen­play are down­sides but this rip­ping sci-fi tale still brings chills. ★★★★
