He better do a decent job if he does direct The Hobbit. I think Peter Jackson did an awesome job with LotR, and I'm hoping that Del Toro will stick to the same kinda world that Jackson discovered when he did the filming. Sure, I can understand his filming style will be different, but there should surely be some elements to keep it similar to LotR? It would be strange if the look and people changed completely.
I agree - this movie was very good. Like you said, the ending was a bit of a flop compared the to the energy of the rest of the film, but Will Smith did a great job and I am pleased I went to see it. And the storyline was original, which is a bonus nowadays!
The plotline was original - that's what I liked about it. It was DIFFERENT - which is something the movie industry is in desperate need of right now. The same kinda stories are being churned out again and again - I Am Legend broke that mould. And it wasn't scary - jumpy in times, but not scary.
Looks so damn cool! Can't WAIT for this film :D
