Without actors andcharacters theirs no show. An actor is a professional, someone who works inmovies, television shows, or doing a stage show. The quality of the actorsin films make a tremendous difference in the quality of the film; as well ashow the writers have created and portrayed the characters that those actorsplay. In the movie “I am Legend” the main character (Dr.Neville) Will Smith, who loses his family to the end of the world.
Will is thelast man on earth but he isn’t alone, he also has his dog with him. Will startsto talk to the manikins around him as if they were real people. Will has a veryspecial bond with his dog because he had her since the apocalypse had started.He only has his dog to keep him company. He is immune and he is also a doctor.
He lives in a barricaded house to protect him from the creatures that areoutside at night. Hairless zombies who use to be human. Will has a lab in hishouse which he captures one of the creatures to try to run test on and cure. One night in the movie, Will loses his dog to one of thecreatures and seeks revenge and tries to kill himself. Will was saved thatnight by a young women and a young boy. He later finds out the next morningthat he isn’t the last person on earth when he meets Anna and Ethan. Sheexplains why she helps him and that they are trying to get to a colony inVermont.
“Whereas Anna feels that God is leading her to thesolution, Robert Neville show pessimism and do not believe in God any more. Thecontrast is very clear between the reason of Dr. Neville, who is, beforeeverything, a scientist, and the faith of Anna. There is this dialog, relevanton this contrast: Anna: “My God…” Dr. Neville “God is for nothing Anna, it’sus” (Barraud). Will Smith sacrifices himself in order for Anna and herson Ethan to escape away with the cure, but there’s a different ending in thebook and in the movie.
Dr. Neville never comes into contact with the zombie’she’s always running from them or shooting them trying to kill one. But in thebook Dr. Neville comes into contact with one of them and lets the zombies seethat he’s been working trying to get them a cure to save them Most of the musicin the movie helps out with them mood and what’s going on.
