I Am Legend

On the Will Smith Remake scale (calibrated in wildwildwests) I Am Legend measures a .88. Several jarjars contribute to this high score:
· The use of Bob Marley songs from the Legend compilation. I Am Legend! Get it? Eesh.
· Dog on a treadmill.
· Butterfly. I can't stress enough how weak this is.
· Sooper-dooper zombies borrowed from The Mummy, by all appearances. Why?
· Shrek.
Yes, the previous attempts at this material have serious flaws but at least they were fun. This is just a drag.
Emma Thompson as the destroyer of worlds is a hoot, however.
