Omen III: The Final Conflict Reviews
The antichrist is now 32 and deep in British politics. He manages several large departments, none of which are more important than a children's program he picked up. He uses this opportunity to put together his army to take down a group of monks who wish to end his days as their own divine son of God is on the way. Can Damien thwart the monks and take down God's second son?
"I will drive the thorns deeper into your rancid carcus."
Graham Baker, director of Alien Nation, Impulse, The Recruit, Born to Ride, and Beowulf, delivers Omen III: The Final Conflict. The storyline for this picture is fairly ordinary but contains some solid acting. The writing was good and the interaction between characters was intriguing. The cast includes Sam Neill, Rossano Brazzi, Don Gordon, Lisa Harrow, and Mason Adams.
"Beauty is pain."
I came across this on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. I really liked Sam Neill as the villain and thought he was awesome as the main character. Is the film awesome? Nah, it is just okay. But is it worth a viewing if you're a horror genre fan? Sure. This is worth a viewing, especially around Halloween season, but definitely isn't a must see.
"Ensure the safety of thy second coming."
To be absolutely fair, the filmmakers conceive of a few nicely disturbing ideas, but do almost nothing to develop them. Instead they try to frighten us with the slapstick-style antics of a band of renegade monks who try and fail (spectacularly) to dispose of the antichrist (Sam Neill, having fun in a poorly-written role). A lousy conclusion to a series of films that is ultimately pretty embarrassing.
