Laughably simplistic and confoundingly muddled.

After a promising start, Omega Code devolves into chase after chase, cliche after cliche, until you've finally forgotten just what it is that darn old code's supposed to do in the first place.

While The Omega Code is occasionally lacking in the techno-wizardry so common in similar films it makes up for it with a good plot.

One of the best bad movies of the 1990s.

The story is dumb. The actors are dumb. Even the special effects are dumb. But not half as dumb as you'll feel if you pay to get in.

With a better direction, casting and some rewriting, this film could have been a lot better.

I'm all for family-friendly entertainment with a minimum of sex, violence, and foul language -- that is, when done right.

Ploddingly dull.

With the material for a great parody, the movie's worst sin is that the actors, who shamelessly overact, take it all quite seriously.

Flabby, pathetic little mess concocted by a consortium of evangelical Christians.

With bad acting, hillarious dialogue, and ludicrous plot turns that make this a future candidate for Mystery Science Theater 3000 mockery, The Omega Code lurches ahead in fits and starts.

God-awful script! The people who brought us weepy televangelists with big pink hair now subject us to this.

The Omega Code has some of the funniest bits I've seen in a film in a long time, and they're all due to the shocking incompetence of Van Dien as an actor.

Neither smart and provocative enough to inspire serious religious debate nor amateurish enough to qualify as good schlock.

The premise of the story is good, but the execution of that story leaves a lot to be desired.
