Black marketers loot an abandoned Soviet bio-weapons lab in Siberia, releasing a weaponized strain of Small Pox which quickly turns into a global pandemic. The remaining 2%, who survive the 98% mortality rate suffer varying degrees of blindness, physical deformation, sterility and madness. Without any food source coming into the cities, what food stocks have not already been looted have been horded. With starvation threatening the plague survivors, they turn to cannibalism, preying upon each other. The unscarred Lionel Verney, by default, becomes the strongest man standing, competing for his existence against entire clans of diseased survivors among the ruins of what once was the 21st century.

OK for the small budget used to make it, but could have been so much better.
10 January 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I watched the Last Man expecting a present day adaptation on a Mary Shelley novel but on a small budget and thats what i got. I also expected decent independent actors, passable special effects, decent direction and freaks that actually look like freaks.....this however I did not get. The Last Man has its good points, which are that I could get all the way through it without turning off and for the small budget spent you can see the potential that the director has with the right mentor. The problem with the Last Man is that the bad outweighs the good. The camera is shaky in the action scenes, the CGI is appalling (would have been better without it), the echoed overlayed voices are amateur, the action scenes (fights and gun battles) are about as exciting as watching paint dry, and the acting is mediocre at best. I'm not a hater at all, I'm just being brutally honest. No actually I'm being fair giving it a 4 out of 10. It was watchable but never exciting, and that is a shame because a film like this had so much potential. I love apocalyptic films and this one did have good writing (yes a positive comment). The script was interesting, especially the use of Sun Tzu's Art of War, and the message that we are all monsters, especially when we judge those that are different is one of truth that needs to be told. It is this alone that made me keep watching. Another good thing is that watching this has made me want to read the novel so I can picture in my imagination what this film could have been with a bigger budget, better actors, and better editing and camera-work. I would still like it to be independent but a film of this scale needs some cash to work with. Please someone out there give it another shot and this time make it with heart, you know like your Mum does with the cooking. That way I know it will be good.
