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 1973-79 and was not produced as a convertible; the "converrtible" shown here is obviously a hardtop with its roof cut off. See more »

Goofs

The protagonist in this movie carries a Heckler&Koch MP5. In at least two scenes (after approximately 52 minutes) the director inserted random close-ups of a AR15-type weapon being shot. Not only do these two rifles look nothing alike, even the backdrop is radically different (the actual scene is set in a back alley, the close-up footage in a forest). See more »

In the garden of eden...
20 February 2008 | by fmarkland32See all my reviews

Mark Dacascos stars a lone soldier looking to blow up the city to destroy zombies that are overtaking the world, seems that you can be effected by their blood, but through kickboxing and gunfire Dacascos saves the day and perhaps the last woman on earth. Here's the deal I Am Omega is better than average for an asylum released product. Indeed the thing that is strange about Asylum films is that where as people liked Cannon and Full Moon, this group is universally hated and though their movies sell well the public opinion is of disgust and dislike. I Am Omega actually isn't too awful of a movie. I mean it's still a bad movie but it does have it's moments of goofy fun and with the reuniting cast of Kickboxer 5's Geoff Meed and Mark Dacascos the movie is watchable for fans of Dacascos. I think the main problem with this movie is that we know so little about how the apocalypse came and many loose ends are left at the end. That being said some of the action is okay and the movie's fast pace made it watchable. As for Asylum, I understand why people dislike their films, Transmorphers, Snakes On A Train and so on were all really awful films but I give credit to this one, in that I think fans of Dacascos will enjoy this movie. The bad acting (from everyone but Dacascos), the cheap production values and underwritten script detract the casual viewer but like I said fans of B.movies may find some enjoyment in this.
