The Omega Man
Welcome to the future. Biological war has decimated life on Earth. Los Angeles is a windswept ghost town where Robert Neville tools his convertible through sunlit streets foraging for supplies.

Rotten: Sadly another film to file under 'not as good as the book.'
- Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
A jive-talking leading lady out of a blaxploitation film and fatuous mutants in monk robes are among the most blighting of Omega Man's failures. Heston is his usual stoic, gravelly self but the atmosphere has been leached of its isolation and the pasty white makeup gives all the mutants a case of powdery vitiligo. A high-scope rifle with a massive infrared eyepiece is truly impressive hardware, but the mutants are silly-costumed freaks that never pose a threat.

Bad acting, dodgy sets and Charlton Heston. Not the Daddy of all B-Movies, more of an Uncle really!
