Some would consider this version better than the 1971 remake with Charlton Heston, The Omega Man, but that isn't much of an achievement.

Steve Biodrowski

This first-ever adaptation of Richard Matheson's novel I Am Legend is easily the most faithful of the three; unfortunately, it is also the least entertaining.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Where the film fails as a narrative - and it fails rather mightily in places - it succeeds as a mood piece.

Long, dull and silly. Truly a pain to watch.

Austin Chronicle

A chilling study of loneliness and an acting tour de force for Price as the last survivor of a dead race, and not exactly the feel-good movie of 1964.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

The Last Man on Earth is indeed about both life and death, creation and destruction, and the fact that each facet is as grim and uninviting as the next is a chilling statement on the way things once were and the way they might one day become.

Cinema em Cena

Price retrata com talento a angústia e o cansaço de seu personagem, mas os vampiros ridiculamente estúpidos e a dublagem capenga boicotam seus esforços.

TV Guide

Price plays a scientist who is the last survivor on Earth after a plague has turned the rest of the population into vampires.
