THE LAST MAN ON EARTH IS NOT ALONE.
In 2012, Lt. Col. Robert Neville (Will Smith) and his dog seem to be the only survivors in an abandoned New York City, but when the sun sets, hordes of contaminated, fiercely violent mutants roam the streets. The third adaptation of the Richard Matheson classic provides stunning views of an empty New York City, a good performance by Smith as the sad and lonely hero, and a whole bunch of thrills. The mutants look scary enough (although the CGI is borderline too obvious). Good fun, but some in the audience might complain about illogical details and the lack of depth.
