Another badly made rip-off of an existing film from the company with no shame or morals whatsoever. I read an interview awhile back in Rue Morgue magazine where the CEO of Asylum pretty much comes out and says he hopes people think his films r the 'real ones'. Bad business from a scumbag company. This movie is a rip-off pure and simple. Complete and utter crap.

Even more garbage from Asylum!

"Any minute now someone from Asylum is gonna post a glowing "review" of this garbage, don't be fooled. Friends don't let friends rent/buy bad movies. Asylum gives low budget a bad name! The only thing positive I could say about this *ahem* "company" is that they make the movie covers look good."
Not as bad as most people say

"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."
Third Rate Copy of A Second Rate Idea

"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."
