Maybe it's time they remade The Omega Man (1971)? Do you think there needs to be a new version and which current star could take Charlton Heston's place in the new version?...
6 Last Man On Earth VS. Omega Man
Which movie do you think is better? I've only seen the Omega Man once and thought it was cool. I haven't seen Last Man On Earth yet, but I plan to soon. Which one is your favorite?...

Even with everything that does work with the film, there is too much wrong to call it a great or even a good movie. What it does do is entertain, and with that strong point, it can be a very, very fun movie to watch..
The film actually starts fairly decently (almost masterpiece like quality compared to what it descends in to) as Heston drives through a deserted Los Angeles, and does battle with the ghouls that stalk and haunt him.
