I finally went to see it tonight! I’m so glad that I did. Will Smith most definitely delivers a gut wrenching performance. There’s something terrifying about the prospect of being the last person in the world. A sort of paranoid loneliness that I have a really difficult time dealing with. Watching some of the scenes were painful, but they were a testament to his acting ability. In fact, it proved what I’ve known all along. Even with a great plot, it’s the memorable characters that make a good story.
I was so much more enraptured by Smith’s character and complexities, that although the movie plot was interesting and at times shocking, I kept obsessing over what would happen to him. I’m going to have to check out the book. My interest is peaked.
Happy Friday all!
