Cheesy 70's movie that didn't inspire,
This review is from: The Omega Man [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
It has to be said that for it's time it must have been pretty good, but it is very dated now in my opinion.
Heston get's his shirt off with regularity. He's was quite well preserved for a man of his age! The love interest, who seems easily seduced by Heston's masculine charms, even though he is not "the only boy in the world", there being a young buck much closer to her age back at camp, provides the "brief nudity".
The 70's fashions are rampant. The portrayal of the black characters with distinctly made-up white faces and white affro hair was vaguely disconcerting. (maybe a little racist if portrayed in a modern film).
This is not a zombie movie....far from it. The "family" are basically skin whitened actors in black monk-like robes. Seemingly able to pursue their lives despite some dodgy looking facial sores.
And the long shots of the allegedly deserted city reveal some cars moving along distant roads, and I swear blind I spotted a pedestrian walking along the pavement as Heston sped past in his sports car.
Not for me.................
