Will Smiff has successfully waged war with nearly everything plaguing the human race: Aliens, infected mutants, criminals, poverty and still more, Mac-compatible, aliens. But in his latest popcorn opus he finds himself stacked against mankind’s fiercest adversary: loneliness. So, while he may’ve been the last man standing in I Am Legend, he’s by no means the only person to get jiggy with the depths of solitude.
