I Am Legend’s Original Ending – I love it

If you did not see I Am Legend’s do not read this post and do not look at the video it is all spoilers.
In the I Am Legend’s DVD there will be the original ending and you need to watch it. It is Amazing. Most of people loved the film until the ending (where Alice Braga’s character appeared), and the end scene where the creatures break into Robert Neville’s lab is great but it wasn’t how it should have played out. To understand the original ending you have to know that the concept of Richard Matheson’s book is that Robert Neville actually is the last man on the planet. And he has switched places from our reality of what we perceive as legend. As in, vampires are to us because they’re a myth from fantasy. In the book Robert Neville is “legendary” because he is that myth and goes out day after day hunting them. In the original ending you see Robert Neville looks at the wall of photo of his “kills” and realizes that he must appear to be some sort of serial killer.



  1. the idea is great bas the ta6beeq was terrible :p

  2. I checked out other sites to see why he was pouring vinegar all over the steps…different people there had different theories..the first time I saw the movie i fell asleep and HATED it when i caught the end. But then saw it on cable, and watched it over and over again. I didn’t understand the butterfly at the end on the girls neck meaning something, then I saw the butterfly in the plexi-glass that the bad dude was making and THEN remembered in the beginning his little girl in the back seat of the car, during flashback scenes, was talking and said “look a butterfly” as she gestured with her hands, and that’s what went through his head at the end. Some people were pissed that he had to die, they said he could have thrown the grenade through the hole to kill them, but I LOVED the idea that he gave his LIFE for this…his life’s work was to cure this and after losing his beloved wife and daughter and going through THREE years of HELL…why wouldn’t he want to be with them in heaven, instead of going to some colony…and if he did then there would be no LEGEND, as he was! I LOVED the movie..i just don’t understand why people on sites, and this one are calling them Vampires -that is so stupid—they are not vampires, they are infected with a virus…WHY DO THEY CALL THEM VAMPIRES? Never in the movie did they… Also, some people complained about the scene when he fell asleep in the bathtub with his dog, then woke up the next day in bed. I don’t mind that, b/c he could have gotten up in the middle of the night and went to bed: BUT what I DON’T GET is why when he wakes up to the alarm, all the LIGHT from the windows is showing through??? all the other mornings he had to re-open the windows. And the dude at the end knocking his head thru the glass, looks so much like the one that got burned when he caught the girl that he used as a test subject…my thoughts were maybe that it was that dude’s girlfriend or something and he had a personal vendetta against Smith’s character. B/C they didn’t all look alike, but this one was seen most thru the movie. Smith was so crazy during the movie, with the fake people he put in the video store and things like that, that i don’t blame him, once again, for wanting to die at the very end…his work was done and he just wanted it to be over…once he lost his only friend, the dog, that was it..Nevertheless: I LOVED THIS MOVIE and it is on cable right now and I’m watching it again..each time i notice something different. But one thing..once the cure gets to the colony- HOW CAN THEY USE IT?? They can’t get to the virus ridden crazy man eaters to inject them? I don’t get that part….any guesses about this and WHY the call them vampires…I just hate that! thanks -gina
