Customer Reviews

If you have seen I Am Legend, you have seen this movie.
Jensden
There's just one problem - Renchard's been working on setting charges through the city to blow up the "zombie hive" and end their scourge once and for all.
Michael J. Tresca
This is one of those movies that you keep watching just to see if it can get any worse.

Although this film cannot compare to the likes of "I Am Legend," it is close to being as good as "The Omega Man." I enjoyed watching it and I thought the Zombies were well done. I could pick apart certain things like the two morons that drafted the star into their mission, or the fact that the two leads pick a convertible to flee in, but those things aside, most of the movie was very entertaining. It's true there was very little exposition about how things got the way they are, but there wasn't much in "The Last Man on Earth" either. Besides, we all know the story anyway! This is a typical Saturday night Sci-Fi Channel movie. And as most everyone knows, you have to take most of those movies with a grain of salt. They are still enjoyable though. So is this one.

I AM OMEGA is a pale copy of a very original idea first seen in THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, then later in THE OMEGA MAN, then most recently in I AM LEGEND. Now director Geoff FURST tries to recreate the same suspense that Vincent Price so effortlessly showed in the original. Unfortunately, he has only Mark Dacascos to play the lead. Dacascos made his mark years ago in martial arts movies and has since tried to make the switch to straight drama. Based on a steady string of turkeys like this one, he made a poor career choice. Here, he is Renchard, one of the very few survivors of some unknown and unexplained plague that wiped out most of earth's population and has caused the rest to mutate into zombies who seek to feast on human flesh. Renchard shows little of the common sense that Vincent Price showed in THE LAST MAN ON EARTH. Where Price would barricade himself into his Fortress of Solitude, Renchard constructs a home that any third rate burglar could break into. He spends his days aimlessly until he receives an internet video feed from a woman who asks his help. We are not supposed to ask how the internet is still working years after society has collapsed. The plot founders as he meets a pair of ex-soldiers who ask him to help them locate her, when logic dictates that they could have found her on their own. Dacascos has frequent shoot em ups with assorted zombies, but there is no forward motion to the story. There is no climax or falling action: just shoot outs with zombies. You know that an action movie is in trouble when the hero gets upstaged by the Bad Guy. Dacascos simply does not know how to generate audience interest. He might rent THE LAST MAN ON EARTH to see how Vincent Price could force the audience to feel his pain. With Dacascos, we just did not care.

Well now Asylum's really made a mess of things.

See, it's very easy to brush off Asylum's mockbuster-style movies as drek. This is why it's become something of a hobby for reviewers to bash the studio for whatever it produces. The very nature of these quickly-produced movies guarantees they will be derivative films. And for the most part, this criticism is well-earned.

Until I Am Omega came along. I Am Omega is a mockbuster of Will Smith's I Am Legend (2007), which was a remake of The Omega Man (1971), which was a remake of The Last Man on Earth (1964), which was based on the book I Am Legend by Richard Matheson that also happened to inspired Night of the Living Dead (1968). Nobody is in a position to call I Am Omega derivative.

The fact that I Am Legend inspired Night of the Living Dead is a clue to I Am Omega's interpretation, which replaces the vampire-like mutants with plain old zombies. Director Griff Furst knows how to film a shot, pace a scene, and cut away before it becomes too obvious that there isn't much of a special effects budget.

I Am Omega's leading man is Renchard (Mark Dacascos). Dacascos is a martial artist first, actor second, but he manages to convincingly carry scenes that are essentially one man slowly going insane in the home where his wife and child were eaten by zombies. Renchard's lonely world is rocked when he receives a video chat request from a woman (Jennifer Lee Wiggins) who is the spitting image of his dead wife. Shortly thereafter, two other survivors, Vincent (Geoff Meed) and Mike (Ryan Lloyd) insist Renchard lead the way through the sewers to the missing girl. She carries the cure to the zombie plague within her.

Yes, this is an Asylum movie. However, it is entertaining and more gritty than many horror movies.

The Good
(1) The female lead is not helpless and is, in fact, more stable and resilient than the hero.
(2) The hero is well-versed in killing zombies. For example, he cleans the blood from himself and his weapons to avoid contamination.
(3) The zombies are real and not CGI.
(4) The fight scenes are fast-paced and well-shot.
(5) Hungry zombies are hungry, crazy humans are crazy, the dead city is dead. The movie is consistent and does not give any unrealistic miracles or surprises.
(6) The DVD is cheap.

The Bad
(1) The movie gives no explanation of how and why the power grid and Internet are still running.
(2) The hero's house does look a bit insecure, but a secure house would look extremely boring.
(3) The DVD has no extras.

"I Am Omega" is not a flashy blockbuster, but it is a good flick.
