The Omega Man (1971)

omega manThe Omega Man (1971)

Directed by: Boris Sagal

Starring: Charlton Heston, Anthony Zerbe, Rosalind Cash


I’m not exactly sure why, but every Charlton Heston movie has the exact same feel to it. From El Cid to Planet of the Apes to Soylent Green, it’s always just one badass, mean Heston against the world. The Omega Man is that to an extreme, where he is literally the last human on Earth, and he has to go around shooting zombies, smiling like a rictus victim all the time.

Heston is the last man on Earth, LITERALLY! Mostly because everybody else either died or got turned into these weird zombie guys who live underground and think of Heston as a monster because they sleep during the day and he spends his days gunning them down in their crypts. If this sounds suspiciously like I Am Legend or the Vincent Price film The Last Man on Earth, it’s because all three are based on the same story.

It’s all right, nothing really to write home about. Like, if you were someone who, for SOME stupid reason, wrote a blog about movies you saw, the only real reason you’d want to even mention it is just to remind yourself that you’ve seen it so you won’t have to do that again. Not that anyone would be that dumb A HA HA HA HA! WOW I LOVE FUNNY JOKES!!
