Anyone else seen it? I've just got back from the flicks. Great cinematography, acting was good, a few good scares... unfortunately it was the most ungripping and boring film I've seen since The Great Gatsby...

If I was on my own, I would have left in less than an hour!

I'm just back from seeing it, I have to agree with you in everything you say, like you I liked the acting etc. but I found it boring at parts, the rest of the family enjoyed it immensley though and are already talking about buying the DVD when it's released

once a week on the BBC news program is a film review slot,apparently none of the the films over-hyped for Xmas were worth the ticket price

I'm seeing it on Wednesday.

Don't bother going to see Golden Compass, it was twaddle.

I too was bored with it. In no way does it stand up to the hype

Well thats abit of a blow, I was looking forward to seeing it.
What do I go and see now?

"What do I go and see now?". The 'Jumper' trailer looked good and fast flowing.

In fact the trailers were more entertaining than the film... I didn't think the story was strong enough to fill more than a 50 minute TV drama slot... I can't be cruel enough to express my disappointment with 'I Am Legend'.

I am planning on seeing both I Am Legend & The Golden Compass in the New Year, (once the kids have gone back to school).

The negative comments won't put me off as we're all different and what one person dislikes another does.

WTM

WTM its based on that film and the one that came before it. Might be slightly different but its based on the same book.

"The negative comments won't put me off as we're all different and what one person dislikes another does."

That's quite right, the two others I went with thought it was OK.

The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials) is a favourite book of mine so I had the advantage of knowing what was what. I still felt a Directors version with another 30/45 mins would have expanded it better and done more justice to the storyline.

A Directors cut of 3 to 4 mins for I Am Legend would do suitable justice to that storyline... HO, HO :))
