Trivia

The car that Renchard is driving at the beginning of the movie, as well as the convertible that he and Brianna take from the parking garage, are 1975 Oldsmobile Omegas, obviously a reference to the tile of the movie. This model was built from 1973-1979 and was not produced as a convertible, having apparently had its roof cut off for the film. See more »

Goofs

There is a scene where Renchard is running out of an old garage that he's been in before after being spooked. As he leaves, he hits one of a set of double doors and it opens and closes behind him. Clearly the garage doors are both closed. He hops in his car and turns to face the door, gun ready in case anything comes out. Both doors are now as wide open as they can be and in fact are clearly propped open with sticks. See more »

Quotes

Renchard: Can't shoot them this close. You'll get blood on you.
Brianna: Yeah, I know.

I Am Omega (2007) **1/2
18 February 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I'd heard about this one, another apocalyptic combo takeoff on I AM LEGEND and THE OMEGA MAN, that was independently produced on a low budget and released direct to DVD on the Asylum label. It's about a man who is one of the few survivors on Earth after some sort of catastrophe (it's never made clear) has turned people into grotesque and marauding zombies. He meets up with a couple of other guys who need his aid in reaching one known female survivor somewhere who may have the cure within her own blood.

There is nothing that's new or unique here, but it functions very much like a "LAST MAN ON EARTH meets DAWN OF THE DEAD", and is more of a zombie film than anything else. On that level I think it succeeds pretty well in spite of the lack of funds... the ghoul makeup and special effects are actually quite good, and there is a decent amount of one-on-one threat and action with the creatures (who are played by real people). In fact, while watching this I thought to myself how much better this aspect of the movie played out than ANY of the silly and needlessly cartoon-like "dwellers" of Will Smith's mega-budgeted I AM LEGEND (which wasn't released until after this, also in 2007) ! Sometimes less is more in this regard, and a tiny budget requires more realism. Sure, there are many curious mistakes (how do computers still work, and why are there lights everywhere at night, for instance?) but I got the impression that hearts were in the right place and the filmmakers did the best with what they had. **1/2 out of ****
