  • Summary: Nope, they sure don't make pictures like that anymore . Ah, the 1970s. The decade that couldn't go out of style fast enough comes to vivid life once again in the Blu-ray release of 1971's The Omega Man . Based on Richard Matheson's ( Duel ) 1954 end-of-times novel I Am Legend , The Omega Man stars leading man and Hollywood legend Charlton Heston ( Planet of the Apes ).

  • Conclusion: I confess to a biased nostalgia for The Omega Man , warts and all. It's an imperfect movie full of problems and I like it a lot. I'm delighted that it's out on HD DVD, even if that's only to cash in on the Will Smith adaptation. It's not for everyone, but for my generation anyway it and Heston's towering screen presence make it a must have in high-def. Recommended.

The Omega Man

High-Def Digest
28 November 2007
  • Conclusion: 'The Omega Man' may not be a particularly good movie, but its woefully dated production values and hilarious nods to blaxploitation arguably make it a true camp classic. As a Blu-ray release, this one's a mixed bag. Although it boasts a surprisingly robust video transfer, the tinny audio and wafer-thin extras are decidedly retro. If you happen to be a fan of the film, I wouldn't dissuade you from picking this one up -- just be sure to set your expectations accordingly.

  • Excerpt: Här har vi en av världens coolaste filminledningar. Charlton Heston bilar omkring i en totalt folktom stad. Lite relaxmusik i bilstereon, solglasögon på. En rörelse i ögonvrån, och Charlton snor åt sig kulsprutan och öppnar eld mot en silhuett i ett fönster. Ensam kvar i världen är ett inte helt ovanligt tema, med filmer som "Den tysta jorden" eller Twilight Zone-avsnitt som "Time Enough at Last" som andra exempel.
