Richard Matheson's classic chiller gets its third adaptation (after THE OMEGA MAN and THE LAST MAN ON EARTH) with this film from director Francis Lawrence (CONSTANTINE). Will Smith plays Robert Neville, the last survivor in a post-apocalyptic New York, but there's still danger left on the city streets.

You can't have seen 'I Am Omega' then.

I agree this film is pants

I liked this film but to be fair blu-ray makes it better

Good price, but a truly awful film.....

24 hours later, this is not

7.1 out of 10 on IMDB (Over 150,000 votes).

A lot of people out there must have thought that it was at least ok.

Do you mean 'The Omega Man' (Charlton Heston)?
I love that film, it's so silly, my favourite bit is the man on the motorcycle doubling for CH and looking nothing at all like him.

No, he means "I am Omega". imdb.com/tit…46/ (Which although not great, I thought was a bit better than it's IMDB rating suggests)

Although, none of these have yet done justice to the novella it's based on. Without sticking to the original ending, the title doesn't really make sense. But then, the original ending clearly doesn't suit hollywood tastes ...... muppets.

As for this version? Looks nice, but it's a pile of garbage when you weigh it up against the actual story it's based on .... with all the usual blatant product placement the goes with Will Smith films (although nowhere near as bad on that front as "I Robot" was ... that was horrendous!).

A lot of people buy Susan Boyle albums too

If watching Will Smith walk his dog around an empty city is your thing, then go ahead and buy this

No - he means 'I am Omega' - a low budget telling of the Matheson story. Incidentally The Last Man on Earth is out of copyright and can be viewed or downloaded for free. I liked it quite a bit.

Fair point.

I usually find though that the IMDB ratings are around the same ballpark as what I would score a film as.

Cant comment on this one though as havent seen it.

I really enjoyed this film!

And good price so hot from me.

Waste of celluloid and actors time. Shame, could have been a good film.

Books' great, the film isn't - anything with bloody Emma Thompson in a guaranteed disaster. Can't stand that woman.

The Omega Man was OK.
Vincent Price did a version of this story too.
Be nice if it's ever done properly.

Fair enough - you didn't like it. Your description of the movie though (i.e. Will Smith walking his dog around an empty city) is ridiculous. A bit like saying Lord Of The Rings is about a small man walking across a few fields.

Good film IMO. Heat added.

Potentially a very good movie destroyed by very bad cgi.

Film is OK if you either watch the "alternate ending" - or if you havent read the book.. nuff said, if you havent seen it/watched it.

That's exactly the one she meant, I really think it's the worst film I have seen of late.
I like a majority of Will Smiths films, I agree IRobot was terrible as was Wild Wild West, I do like I Am Legend though.

I haven't seen Lord of the Rings so I can't comment
