Omen III: The Final Conflict Reviews

La tercera parte de la trilogía de "The Omen", es la más floja de las tres. Sam Neill interpreta al Anticristo, encarnado en un Damien Thorn ya adulto, que busca sumir al mundo en una era de oscuridad. Siete monjes van a tratar de impedirlo. La premisa podría haber sido mucho más efectiva en manos de un director experto, pero aquí se nota que Graham Baker no era el director indicado. De todas, maneras "The Final Conflict" logra en algunos momentos asustar y logra envolver.

Can't say it didn't need to be made. Sam Neill is fine, but the film is a dull bore. Compared with what the last two films did, Omen III may conclude the story fairly, but offers little of anything interesting that hasn't been done already throughout its runtime, lacking enough edge or thrills to carry the film.

Time hasn't been kind to this movie. It seemed a fitting finale to The Omen series thirty years ago even though it was the weakest of the films by a long way. In the cold light of 2016 The Final Conflict shows its colours as a mediocre drama with the odd moment of horror thrown in. To be brutal, the average episode of Hammer House Of Horror was far superior.

To be honest I felt asleep whe I saw this film, it was completely boring. This 3rd installment of " The Omen " franchise is completely boring. I did not understand it all. I tbought they tried to make it scary but it failed on all cylinders. As that being said for this movie having bad performances as well and just not scary at all as well, and not delivering what I was expecting, I give "Omen III : The Final Conflict " a D-.

It's all come to this. Damien is poised to make hell on Earth. His disciples are fundamentally, and psychpathically, devoted. He searches for his only obstacle. More horror, and suspense. A great close to the Omen saga. This is the first time I've experienced the acting of Sam Neill

One of the worst horror sequels ever, Omen III - The Final Conflict strives to be something great (and it could've), but the poor scares and a rather silly plot make this final entry in the Omen trilogy a disappointment

Ending was amazingly powerful!!!

A little heavy handed and far fetched, but a decent conclusion to the story.

It started off really well. It was dark and boding, and it was close to duplicating that feeling of impending doom and "evil" that the first movie had (including one of the goriest gunshots ever). Somewhere along the line though (probably by the time half the monks are getting killed off) the movie starts a drastic decline. It's almost like a tale of two movies. The first half is about monks trying to kill Damien. The second half is about Damien killing babies. You would think a movie about mass baby killing would be horrifying, but it was fairly tame and 90% of it happens off screen (which is understandable). It just becomes way too hokey towards the end with the Damien love story and all of the characters just seem to get dumber as the movie goes on. It was really disappointing how poor the movie became when the first thirty minutes were so promising. Do not expect anything nearly as good as the original.

Neill is just plain evil in this wickedly devilish all out war of good vs. evil.

El anticristo más aburrido que pueda existir.

Arm yourselves in the name of the lord.

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."

It does not fit in to the trilogy in any way. just biblical trivia only.

An improvement over part 2, unfortunately the movie is not scary, though it does have some creepy imagery. Sam Neill is great as the anti-christ.

Very boring but Sam Neil is perfect in the role.

While its nice to have some closure after the excellent first two movies, the twist is ludicrous. Not one of the evil doers in the film could be bothered to pick up a bible to know that Jesus is foretold to NOT come back as a child?

The gas had pretty much run out of the OMEN franchise by the time of this second sequel, and yet THE FINAL CONFLICT is quite an interesting film in spite of its obviously flaws. Sam Neill gives an excellent performance as the now adult Damien Thorne. Screenwriter Andrew Birkin makes at least a token attempt to wrestle with the problem of Evil. And director Graham Baker shows some real style behind the camera, using editing, angles, and movement to orchestra the shocks almost as well as Richard Donner did in THE OMEN. The insurmountable problem built into the scenario is that THE FINAL CONFLICT promises nothing less than Armageddon â?? a promise it cannot possibly fulfill while sticking to the established formula of killing off a handful of individuals who know or suspect the truth about Damienâ??s true identify as the Antichrist.

Damien grows up ... and the series grows dead.

With a much required dosage of prestige, Sam Neill lends his considerable malice to the serrated, ultimately anticlimactic 'Omen III'. Damien (Neill) is now a profiteering ambassador to England and he criticizes an Armageddon commercial for being "trite, cliche and rhetorical" which is a modicum of the film's satirical edge (which is already an astronomical step-up from the malodorous 1978 sequel). Suddenly the series' mythos has been gerrymandered and a dagger is now the MacGuffin to finally kill the Antichrist. Drivel about the constellation is basically expository overload but the debonair Neill is the scenery-chewing linchpin. His soliloquy about the "ecstasy of [his] father's kingdom" in an echoing atrium is a deliciously megalomaniac show-stopper (he caresses the thorn on Christ's crown effigy). Sadly, the finale to an infant-killing spree by the "Disciples of the Watch" is a dispiriting whimper near a churchyard where evil is thwarted so abruptly (with an oversimplified bible quote) that the audience feels cheated for being so invested up to that point. Neill is a sadomasochistic firebrand (despite the fact that Damien is now Dr. Doolittle with all mammals) but 'Omen III' is a brusque capper to the trilogy.

A gutsy and unique entry in a franchise that had already sank to the sodden depths of hackdom, "The Final Conflict" relies on neither the tense subtlety of the original nor the sensory assault of the first sequel. Sam Neill is a chilling, hauntingly attractive adult Damien, and unlike Bill Holden and company in "Damien," he actually does his best with a mixed bag of dialogue. The great attractions of this film are two: Jerry Goldsmith's career-best score, which oscillates convincingly between Damien's haunting demonic chanting and the old-fashioned Biblical grandeur that heralds the second coming of Christ, the sweep and beauty of which has not been attained since Miklos Rozsa's "Ben-Hur"; and the courageous, decisive finale. However you feel about the way the conflict is resolved, it was a bold choice. And this is overall a far more competent, polished, stylish sequel than "Damien."
