4 Star Review   By member Spike65 - Jun 29, 2008   

A pretty well constructed film. Heston does a fine job and there is enough action and suspense to keep it interesting. Not shown much nowadays.

This is good science fiction outside the modern slash and splatter mode. This has a plot and a story. Charlton Heston is great here.

Very dated, but any movie involving the exploration of an empty city gets a thumbs up from me. I still enjoy the car dealership scene for some reason.

3 Star Review   By member hippiebill - Nov 30, 2003   

Ben-hur! Moses! Taylor (Planet of the Apes)! And then there's Neville, the avenging Christ. Hack writing. Cheesy ending (spear through the side/crucified on the fountain). Chuck really fell low on this one. A better "end of the world" movie is either 'On the Beach' or 'Last Man in the World' w/Harry Belafonte.

5 Star Review   By member PBeavr - Jun 5, 2003   

What an honor to be the first to rate this movie. I enjoyed this movie a great deal. A true classic and even better since this is one horror movie that actually had good to great acting. This might be more of a sci-fi movie but it would still rate as good to great. Heston and Zerbe are excellent in this movie and the tension between them as the story progresses is very well done. The supporting cast did a fairly good job overall as well. There are quite a few lulls in teh movies plot and it comes close to getting bogged down in places but I find that more than made up for by the feeling of danger and suspense. A well planned and scripted movie overall with some only a few flaws. Not much on special effects(other than makeup really) and it isn't the best directed movie as well. But I really enjoyed this once upon a time and recall it fondly. Not a landmark film but very well made and entertaining. A classic to me but probably not for many others.
