Omega Man

"The Omega Man" (1971) Will Smith scored a big hit this past Christmas with "I Am Legend" and Heston hit a box office bulls-eye with this adaptation of Richard Matheson's 1954 novel, "I Am Legend." Heston's version certainly isn't very good, but it's over-the-top fun. Heston plays an army colonel who had injected himself with a vaccine for a disease that wiped out the population after biological warfare between China and the Soviet Union. Now two years later, Heston spends his days trying to kill off mutants who survived the plague.
