Plague-ridden mutants try to talk Charlton Heston to death in The Omega Man, the template for I Am Legend, which opens today. In Omega, if the disease doesn't kill you, it turns you into a luddite religious nut who enjoys call-and-response crap. But as this crucifixion scene illustrates, the choice in Omega isn't between religion and science, because Charlton Heston is Jesus. This scene, by itself, is enough to give you a flavor of Omega and make you glad the mutants in Legend keep their yaps shut. [SciFi review]
