I thought the movie was great, but then I actually read the book, which it seems most people here didn't do. If you had read the book you probably wouldn't be upset that it wasn't full of action, I would be upset if they did turn it into constant action, with him being some kind of superhuman monster hunter, he's supposed to terrified and on the edge of insanity. They changed a number of facts from the book, and compressed the time line a lot, but I thought they stuck to the spirit of the book, the essential aspects of it.






***SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER***

















The only drastic alteration was actually finding the cure, and having a surviving human population, but I expected that, it is Hollywood, they couldn't just have him accept the extinction of the human race and die.

In the book he finds the dog later on, after he was so starved for companionship, and it dies of the virus. Just like the movie, the book doesn't have a whole lot of back story, just flashbacks about his family, and a few things related to the virus. He isn't a doctor in the book, but he is trying to find a cure, and I actually liked the fact that the movie made him a doctor, as it makes more sense to have him searching for the cure as a doctor, rather than just some guy. As for why the creatures became more organized and more intelligent as far as setting the trap and caring about the female, in the book the sickness mutates, and a number of them develop a way to live with the virus and construct a society. In the book, he goes around during the day k!lling the sick people, which prompts retaliation, this is the role of the woman he took to experiment on in the movie (in the book he also does experiments, and only on women). They send a woman to "accidentally" run into Neville and gain his trust in the book, to scout out how he's defended, this is sort of represented by the woman and the kid, loosely. In the book, the woman they sent falls for him, and warns him to leave or they'll k!ll him, and he makes up his mind to stay and die, he decides since he's now the minority, the new "society" is right to fear him and want to get rid of him, so he accepts his fate. The movie also captured his turns from sense and lucidity to sudden insanity. I really liked the part when he goes in the kitchen and thinks its his family at first, that's a nod to the book, where the woman the vampires sent to spy on him is leaving during the night, and he wakes up and thinks its his dead wife at first. The thing with the mannequin in the adult section of the video store calls back to the s3xual frustration of being a man alone in the book, with the female vampires taunting him. Even the sort of rushed feeling of the end reminded me of the book.

Really, I think a lot of people would have a better appreciation for the movie if they had read the book first.
