The Omega Man

( 9 )

Overview

Charlton Heston stars as The Omega Man, which arrives on DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. The English soundtrack is acceptable, but not outstanding. English and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include an introduction by the screenwriter and a pair of actors who appear in the film, and a vintage making-of documentary with lots of footage of Heston on the set. ...

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Entertainingly cheesy, The Omega Man is another entry in Charlton Heston's toothy last-man-standing science fiction phase, à la Planet of the Apes (1968) and Soylent Green (1973). Adapted from Richard Matheson's I Am Legend with key 1970s differences, the dystopian story of one man's fight to save humanity features intentionally and unintentionally striking images of arch-conservative Heston tooling around an uninhabited Los Angeles in convertibles and mistily taking in a screening of Woodstock (1970) when not battling monkish Ray Ban-wearing zombies. While the near-complete elimination of the population via germ warfare serves as a still-timely warning regarding technology and its abuses, the Luddite albino mutants with their Charles Manson-esque murderous allegiance to "the Family" become a reverse lesson in technophobia. As the one survivor blessed with immune blood, Heston trades Biblical role models on his way to a fate and final image audacious in its hubris. Though this second screen version of Matheson's novel was hardly a blockbuster, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ridley Scott were set to shoot a third until it was deemed too expensive.

    Best rendition but bad ending

    Of all the I Am Legend movie remakes, this is probably the best one even though the ending sucked. The Will Smith's movie was terrible...it insulted Richard Matheson's classic work. But back to Omega Man, I liked the way L.A. looked deserted and run down. I even liked Charleton Heston. If they hadn't written in the hippie vamp cult headed by Anthony Zerbe, the movie would've been okay.

    Te best sci-fi movie of its time.

    Five out of five stars far better than I am legend. More action and better acting a clasic. I hope some day they make a part two to the omega man to hard to remake this movie.

    Blue Shag, Avocado Fridges, The Omega Man

    This movie is enjoyable simply because it has a high cheese factor due to the fact the film has dated horribly. Some of the shots, such as the one depicting deserted LA city blocks, are still impressive. Goofs such as a moving car being visible in the distant background of said deserted blocks only add to the fun. A campy nostalgaic ride.

    Old movie current event

    One of the less than biblical roles performed by Charlton Heston, The Omega Man depicts an at the time after vision of the effects of biological warefare on America. With the current SARS alert in the US and abroad, this old film is even scarier. Worth watching, especially if you are an old Creature Feature fan.
