Can't remember, but was it ever explained how the mannequins moved?
User avatar #8 to #7 - lustraDD (04/30/2013) [-]
.....he moved them for bait for the zombies. But the idea of this part of the film is he's starting to lose his grip, so he doesn't remember

Why has the internet only just realised this? The film has been out for awhile. Did the elders of the internet finally watch it?

They really ****** up the whole premise, and use of symbolism with the ending where he dies.
The reason it's called "I Am Legend" is because he's meant to realize that the vampires aren't evil, they just want to survive and they only attack him because they care about their friends and family that he has been stealing and experimenting on and killing.
He is meant to be a legend among the creatures as "the thing that comes in the night" the same way those creatures would have been exactly that for us humans, and to them he's the evil one, it's meant to make you think about the fact you've been rooting for this guy the entire film, and it turns out he's wrong. And the symbolism I mentions is simply a butterfly. Butterflies are used constantly throughout this because it's meant to be that these creatures are a new evolutionary step (though a man made one) and it's like a metamorphosis of human evolution. They just want to survive like any other species.

Then, it got ruined and they decided it should end with a giant explosion instead, killing all the creatures, and saying that his "legend" is that he's a hero that found a cure and sacrificed himself for humans.
Way to cater to the lowest common denominator...

Thing that pissed me off about this film is that it skips the three years he spent struggling to survive, watching every single person he ever knew turn and jumps to the future where a series of dramatic events rapidly unfold for the movie's sake.

Sam dies.
Bitch shows up.
He dies.
End.

All in about four/five days time, despite the fact he had managed to survive for over 900 days prior. How great would it have been if they made the first movie the breakout and the second moving finding the cure?

If it was possible to create something which gives the same amount of satisfaction (sexually - obviously), and the ability to reproduce without all the whiny ******** , there wouldn't be such thing as woman..

I'm reading the comments, and I thought the creatures were vampires. They were attracted to blood and burned in the sunlight... I don't know.
User avatar #36 to #29 - viscerys (04/30/2013) [-]
They are vampires in the book. I always saw them as vampires and as such, I didn't enjoy the movie as much as I should have.

Yeah, the ending fits more with the movie's original intention, which tvfreakuk hit the nail on the head with explaining
www.funnyjunk.com/funny_pictures/4565090/Checkmate/89#89

Instead they devolved the ending to having the mutants be mindless overaggressive monsters, and caved into the cliche of just about every generic zombie movie, with the black guy sacrificing himself to save someone to boot.
