Hey guys, i just got the collectors edition of "I am Legend". I loved this movie the first time i saw it, and now that i have watched the not shown in theaters version on the DVD, i love it even more with its alternate ending and small details through out. I was just wondering what those of you who also bought it think of the alternate end? Don't say what it is in the thread though so we dont ruin the ending of the movie for those people that have yet to see it ...Oh and if you have not seen it yet i strongly recommend buying it and watching the original film before you watch the special version!!

I think it's a lot closer to the ending of the book that the movie is based on, which is why I prefer it to the theatrical version.

Also, the alternate ending has been available on the Internet for a while now.

I like it better... sorta, it just depends what kind of feel you're going for, the alternate left room open for something like a sequel, it only felt 99% over, while the other one seemed more solid, but in return less deep and compassionate.

And was there any significant differences in the alternate version of the movie? I just skipped to the end

I didn't care for the entire movie. Too much reliance on CG. The city, the animals, cars, zombies. The soundtrack of the engine did not match the driving at all, because the mustang dirving around the city of course was CG as well - very good cg image quality and rendering... but the motion/physics and sounds were off.

I'm curious about the alternate ending though.

Wasn't most of the city in CG as well?

I think the alternative ending made more sense than the one shown in theaters. Him dying at the end just left you feeling for more to the story.

No and neither was the car actually, I watched the making of the movie and the car was real, a stunt river in a side car was driving, and all of the city you saw was real, they shut down fifth avenue for some of the scenes, only stuff that was CG was the "Dark Seekers", the animals and any special effects.

How could there be a stunt driver in a sidecar in the exterior driving action scenes? You know, when the car is zooming around corners, chasing the herd. That could not have been real. That car was taking corners like it was on rails. It looked toy-ish to me. And the motor sounds were off time.

Good point, all I know if that I watched the making of the movie, and for some of the scenes or at least when they showed Will Smith inside driving the car they had a stunt driver in a side car, and when he wasn't they had a stunt driver in the car. Idk about all of the scenes in that youtube clip, but anything where they show Willy inside the car, the car is actually being driven, and I know a lot of those clips of it going down the street and chasing the deer are all real (I know I sound sorta crazy but in the making of the movie this is what the directors were saying and this is what the stunt driver was saying and this is what the video I was seeing was telling me).

I can be totally wrong about it, just going by what I see.
The lion attack scene was certainly CG. So I figured the herd chase scene was as well.

Yeah the actual deer were CG, but the driving was real, surroundings were added using CG as well after everything was calculated by sensors on the car... they're using some pretty advanced stuff these days!

Great movie. Unfortunately I went for the T-3 & I Am Legend two pack ($19.99 at Wal-mart). I haven't opened it yet (the same with the last couple of movies i've bought there). If I stopped spending time on the internet, I might watch them.

Hi,
Iam Legend is nice.
The first and second act were awesome, but the ending screwed up the entire movie. I am looking forward to an alternate ending.

After witnessing this cinematic massacre of a literary classic... I would bet that Richard Matheson would be rolling over in his grave... and he's not even dead yet.
