ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The Omega Man does so many things right that when the two things it gets completely wrong rear their ugly, ill-considered heads it's almost enough to destroy the entire film. Director Boris Sagal, a veteran of television, does one of the better jobs of conveying a post-Armageddon environment for his characters to function in. It is rare when his abandoned streets and empty shops feel like back lots or sound stages. There is an attention to detail (the beginning of vegetation overgrowth, masses of intertwined cobwebs) that really sells the isolation and desertion...Heston is a very physical actor, a presence that's not model attractive or body builder perfect, but does resonate a strong, heroic determination...Charlton Heston proves in The Omega Man that he could handle the role of sole survivor very well. Too bad he had to be handed a gassy, grassroots geek patrol for a nemesis.

Review If anybody has to be the last man in the world, I suppose it might as well be Charlton Heston. At least we know we're in good hands. He outmaneuvered the apes in "Planet of the Apes," so why not send him up against the ghouls in "The Omega Man"? They're not a whole lot smarter...Heston is the only truly immune man, but he stumbles across a band of survivors who haven't yet fallen to the plague, and provides them with a serum that will save the human race. This band includes Rosalind Cash, who is engagingly brash and rescues Heston from cremation..."The Omega Man" is based on an uncredited novel by Richard Matheson. I wonder if it was I Am Legend, a very good work about the last normal man left in a world of vampires. He held them off with mirrors, crosses, and garlic--the usual mixture -- and did very nearly as well as Heston with his spotlights.
