Default Thinking about buying I Am Legend/Hitman.

I was thinking about buying these two movies, but didnt know if they were any good or not. Usually Videogame Movie adaptations are never any good, so I was REALLY unsure about hitman.

Default Go for I Am Legend

I really enjoyed I Am Legend and for the price right now at Amazon, I would say it is worth it. I know a lot of people didn't like it for one reason or the other, but you might find you enjoyed it like I did.

i enjoyed both movies, but i recommend waiting to get a good deal on hitman, i got it for 18 bucks shipped from half.com, which isnt bad at all for a fox title

I've heard Hitman was terrible. I Am Legend is quite decent and would be worth a blind buy IMO, if you like that Sci-fi-esque type thriller.

It interested me because I like the Zombie/Viral outbreak like movies where basically the world has gone to hell.

I quite enjoyed Legend. WHile the film has its issues, it's a worthwhile and engaging film based on quite an interesting story.

Hitman is terrible. Save for the leading lady being naked half the time she's on screen, it's just not a worthwhile movie at all.

I blind bought I Am Legend (re: price), and count me in on those who wished they hadn't. It had a lot of potential and some amazing effects (and some that weren't), but it fell apart toward the end.

I Am Legend isn't for everyone. Yes it has holes and isn't the best movie in the genre, but it wasn't nearly as bad as many of my friends who saw it lead me to believe it was. I thought it was pretty good, even the ending. The BD has the alternate ending on it as well, which I thought was also quite interesting, though I prefer the theatrical ending a bit more I think. Since you like this type of flick, I'd say go for it, especially if you pick it up for ~$19.

I'd say rent Hitman, which I didn't even do yet because it looked like just another popcorn action flick with nothing new to offer.
