Omen III: The Final Conflict Reviews
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.
(1981) Omen III: The final Conflict
Somewhat of a continuation where the last one left off. After killing off two well "publicized" families, for it's like both families had never even existed which are the Gregory Peck character's family from the first movie and then the William Holden character's family of the second. Damien who's now 32 not only inherits the previous family's fortune but gets appointed to have two different jobs for the President of the United States which is being the US ambassador for the UK, and the "President of the UN Youth Council". At the same time 7 priests are planning an assassination by attempting to stick one of seven rare distinctive knives into him. One can wonder that if Damien had so much money, why can't he just hire people to retrieve all 7 knives himself if it's the only weapon that he was supposed to be kill in? Anyways, what viewers also get is what was already explained out of the first two movies is that Damien is the anti-Christ and is the true son of Satan himself blah, blah, blah... for it's like everyone are so dense and narrow minded except for those 7 priests. And the way he killed some of the people who're after him is dumb since it's already on public record how other people were killed, for it's like they're are not aware about what Damien is capable of doing which also includes controlling animals and so forth. I have to say this movie looked a lot worst after my second viewing.
