Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek from Washington, D.C. to New York City to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age.
Robert Neville is a scientist who was unable to stop the spread of the terrible virus that was incurable and man-made. Immune, Neville is now the last human survivor in what is left of New York City and perhaps the world. For three years, Neville has faithfully sent out daily radio messages, desperate to find any other survivors who might be out there. But he is not alone. Mutant victims of the plague -- The Infected -- lurk in the shadows... watching Neville's every move... waiting for him to make a fatal mistake. Perhaps mankind's last, best hope, Neville is driven by only one remaining mission: to find a way to reverse the effects of the virus using his own immune blood. But he knows he is outnumbered... and quickly running out of time.Written by

The filmmakers couldn't close all the streets at once, so each weekend, they'd film Will Smith driving on a different corner. People on the street hid, and took cellphone videos of Smith, as he drove by. See more »
Robert Neville, according to his radio broadcasts, is transmitting on all AM frequencies. In the United States, that would take 116 transmitters. This would be an impossible task to set up and to maintain, while trying to save the world from this virus. A decent antenna for each of these transmitters, such as a dipole, would range in length from 275 to 867 feet. The power to keep these transmitters operating would be a waste of Neville's resources, regardless of their size. See more »
The world of medicine has seen its share of miracle cures, from the polio vaccine to heart transplants. But all past achievements may pale in comparison to the work of Dr. Alice Krippin. Thank you so much for joining us this morning.
Dr. Alice Krippin:
Not at all.
So, Dr. Krippin, give it to me in a nutshell.
Dr. Alice Krippin:
Well, the premise is quite simple - um, take something designed by nature and reprogram it to make it work for the body rather than against it.
You're talking about a virus?
Dr. Alice Krippin:
Indeed, yes. In this...

The ending to the Alternate Theatrical Version varies from the original ending. Instead of blowing himself and the hemocytes up with a grenade, Neville discovers that the hemocytes actually came for the female he captured earlier in the movie. He relieves her of the cure and returns her to the hemocytes. Afterwards, the hemocytes leave and let Neville, Anna, and Ethan be. The three then are seen leaving New York heading to Vermont's safe zone with Anna broadcasting a message telling all other survivors that she is with Neville and is heading to the safe zone.

This movie is boring and insulting to the viewer's intelligence.
A truly terrible movie. Bad storyline, very superficial main character and a not logical transformation of people into super-zombies, who can perform house-high jumps and seem to get superpowers from a virus. Nice work. Add to this negligible dialogue and some Mustang-car action and you'll get the best night's sleep ever. I wonder why this kind of movie is successful at all. Don't viewers want to watch something that makes sense? If all that it needs to produce a successful movie are some zombies/vampires and explosions spiced with big cars, then I believe I could have found the easiest job in the world. But anyway, the movie unfortunately is totally disappointing.
