Consensus: I Am Legend overcomes questionable special effects and succeeds largely on the strength of Will Smith's mesmerizing performance.

Smith turns in a terrific performance, nailing Neville's angst while allowing room for humor.

I Am Legend is a grenade that goes off when least expected. It has more horror than heart, but it is never boring.

It's a better-than-average blockbuster, which sweeps around some large ideas and interesting themes, but never delves for long enough to make this film a true classic.

So often, sci-fi is overproduced, but I Am Legend doesn't look like a CGI extravaganza. It looks like an edgy suspense movie shot on the fly in New York City after the fall. And because of that, it's all the more effective.

You're left gawping at $100 million-worth of eye-popping futuristic B-movie.

I Am Legend is three film genres for the price of one: Science Fiction, Action, and Horror, and while it's no classic in any one arena it remains edgy fun.
