The Omega Man Reviews

August 28, 2011
Unsatisfying sci-fi thriller, though it's not Charlton Heston's fault
April 29, 2008
In adapting Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend, the film loses the original's quiet paranoia and rethink of the vampire theme, but it has quite a lot of gritty flair.

Despite not having aged particularly well, the opening sections of this sci-fi allegory remain potent, although the rest of its apocalyptic storyline is decidedly leaden.

...not an awful film, just a remarkably dull one.

A breezy film about the death of mankind in a way that only the '70s could have provided.

Not bad, but far from a classic.

An extremely literate science-fiction drama.

Another misfired adaptation of Richard Matheson's fine science fiction novel I Am Legend.

Averagely competent exercise in comic strip sci-fi.

Despite being baked in early '70s cheese, The Omega Man is easily the most entertaining film version of Richard Matheson's sci-fi novel, I Am Legend

Ainda eficaz, mais de 30 anos depois de seu lanamento.

Lacks the power and cleverness of the Matheson book, but worth viewing just for Heston's sake.

Peppered with some sharp, even amusing dialogue, the story temporarily shelves the heavy allegory and slips into good, slam-bang suspense. But it doesn't last.

Lights on! Not bad sci-fi with Heston in hiding.

The ghouls are a little too ridiculous to quite fulfill their function in the movie. They make all the wrong decisions, are incompetent and ill-coordinated.
