Critic Reviews for The Omega Code

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Laughably simplistic and confoundingly muddled.

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.

Audience Reviews for The Omega Code


Preposterous and low budget rubbish. The plot is dreadful and never once is it in the least bit convincing. The acting is not awful, but it certainly isn?t good. Michael York comes off best. It?s all so phony. The special effects are poor and the direction is awful.

James Higgins

I recommend this one. A possible version of events which might precede Armaggedon. Amazing cast....Robert Ito & Michael York

Super Reviewer

It's a different view on the endtimes and how scripture is fullfilled. I don't like the idea of the Bible Code used in the movie, but the acting is good.
