Synopsis:
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. And makes damn sure he gets undercover before sundown, when other 'inhabitants' emerge. The Omega Man adapts Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend into a high-impact high-tension saga of a fate not so far removed from reality. Charlton Heston is Neville, fending off attacks by The Family, sinister neopeople spawned by the plague. He also becomes a man with a mission after meeting Lisa (Rosalind Cash), another uninfected survivor - and guardian of some healthy children representing our species' hope.

A curiosity - The Omega Man review by CSF

Spoiler Alert
09/02/2022

As far as science fiction films are concerned, Charlton Heston has done better. His best film is Soylent Green. It reflects our century a lot more than Omega Man. Because Omega Man is about the consequences of a virus, one thinks immediately about Covid 19. In fact it has little to do and I found the film weak.

The film is a little dated but it is a curiosity. The acting is ordinary and the special effects well done but a bit naive. Heston plays the part of yet another Prometheus.
