A Classic 1970's Sci-Fi Horror with Charlton Heston.
on 31 March 2017
A classic 1970's Horror/Sci-fi movie with Charlton Heston, that I really do like.
It's based on the last man on earth, and tells the story of a survivor of a biological catastrophe which has killed the majority of the planets population, and mutated a few more, our hero is of course Immune.
Charlton Heston plays the role in a similar way to his role in Planet of the Apes, and much better in my opinion than Will Smith in I am legend.
Watching the Omega Man, I fell a real sense of foreboding and danger to the stories main character and its very pessimistic plot line was reminiscent of many movies of its type in the 1970's when happy endings in movies were not popular.
Well the picture quality is looking a little dated, and were used to over the top special effects, but the Omega man shines in my opinion as its character centered, and story driven and so engaging.
