They really ****** up the whole premise, and use of symbolism with the ending where he dies.
The reason it's called "I Am Legend" is because he's meant to realize that the vampires aren't evil, they just want to survive and they only attack him because they care about their friends and family that he has been stealing and experimenting on and killing.
He is meant to be a legend among the creatures as "the thing that comes in the night" the same way those creatures would have been exactly that for us humans, and to them he's the evil one, it's meant to make you think about the fact you've been rooting for this guy the entire film, and it turns out he's wrong. And the symbolism I mentions is simply a butterfly. Butterflies are used constantly throughout this because it's meant to be that these creatures are a new evolutionary step (though a man made one) and it's like a metamorphosis of human evolution. They just want to survive like any other species.

Then, it got ruined and they decided it should end with a giant explosion instead, killing all the creatures, and saying that his "legend" is that he's a hero that found a cure and sacrificed himself for humans.
Way to cater to the lowest common denominator...

There was a deleted scene where he heals one and hands her over to them and they leave but nooooo, that's not epic enough for the cinema apparently.

That's the alternate ending I was talking about, that's how he finds out they aren't evil and all the other stuff I mentioned
