John Woo – “Paycheck” (2003)

Medium low quality movie starring Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman. Based on the Philip K. Dick’s short story Paycheck (read my post here).

Easily forgettable. I came to the novel from the movie.

Francis Lawrence – “I am Legend” (2007)

Loosely based on Richard Matheson’s I am Legend (read my post here), this movie was really a pleasure to watch.

Will Smith delivers a strong performance.

I am annoyed by the ending of it. That’s a 180 degree turn from the original, in my humble opinion.

Doug Liman – “Jumper” (2008)

Nice visual effects, actors’ performance (Hayden Christensen, Samuel L. Jackson) are medium/low.

The story is really miserable. I’ll read the book however.

Just tell me how a thief and a liar can end up having a nice life? Even if he is tracked by the Paladins who wants to kill him, it is not a sufficient reason for him to enjoy such a cheat life.
