Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: 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. – Howard Thompson, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: An extremely literate science-fiction drama. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Not bad, but far from a classic. – Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

An eerie cult classic

The Omega Man is one of the finest of the dystopian science fiction films that emerged from the 1970s. Those of you who have seen I Am Legend will love the 70s-ified version. It might be one of Heston's best films.

Omega Man is Mega Good!!!

Legends have to start somewhere. Rent this one now. Despite its dated look this film delivers the thrills. One the edge of your seat kinda film, that leaves you thinking way after its done. A must Rent!!

good movie

I love this movie. It is a sci/fi with lots of suspence, and Charlton Heston is a great actor. It is to bad that it isn't able to be bought. But if your looking to rent a movie this is 1 to get. (if you like I AM LEGEND then you will love this)
