Movie Info

In this combination sequel and prequel to the surprise box-office success The Omega Code, one man becomes the leader of an evil empire that could destroy the world, and his brother must rise against him in the defense of good. Stone Alexander (played as a child by Gavin Fink) is a moody, dark-tempered child whose parents died shortly after he was born. The mother who adopted Stone died several years later while giving birth to another son, David, and Stone is unable to forgive his brother for unwittingly taking his mother from him. Stone goes so far as to attempt to murder David, and their father, prominent businessman Daniel Alexander (David Hedison), responds by shipping Stone off to military school. There, Stone falls under the tutelage of The Guardian (Udo Kier), an instructor at the school who is actually an emissary of Satan. While the enmity between Stone (played as a teenager by Noah Huntley) and David (played by Chad Michael Murray) cools a bit with time, Stone once again finds himself in a bitter rivalry with his brother when they both fall in love with the same woman, Gabriella (played as a teenager by Elisa Scialpi). Stone eventually wins Gabriella's hand and they marry, as Stone (played as an adult by Michael York) rises to power as the ruthless leader of the military arm of the European Union; David (played as an adult by Michael Biehn), meanwhile, becomes a powerful figure in American politics, and is elected to the office of Vice President. What neither David nor Gabriella (played as an adult by Diane Venora) fully understand is that, under the influence of The Guardian, Stone has taken on the role of the Antichrist, and he attempts to curry his brother's favor (and arrange events that will make David president) in a bid for world domination. When it becomes clear to David that the goal of his brother's campaign is to put the world in the power of Satan, David realizes America and its allies must join forces against Stone's troops in a battle in Megiddo, Israel -- predicted in the Book of Revelations as the place of the final battle of good versus evil.

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

Delirious, top-notch camp for viewers of all faiths and denominations, Megiddo: Omega Code 2 offers so much goofy fun, it's sinful.

Top Critic

Boasting a bigger, more handsomely mounted production, this is also a duller, more sullen affair.

Once the action starts to kick in, Megiddo morphs, minute by minute and scene by scene, into a Mystery Science Theater smorgasbord.

A step forward in budget and coherence from the first Omega Code ... but will still have even much of its evangelical target audience stifling unholy snickers.

What's wrong with Megiddo is not its good-versus-evil theme but the clunky, unpersuasive manner in which it has been expressed.

You'd just about have to give movie cameras to monkeys to make a film worse than The Omega Code.

Audience Reviews for Megiddo: The Omega Code 2


I have no idea what Omega Code 1 was about or how this is a sequel since it is fairly self-contained, but this one has Michael Biehn and that is the only reason it even showed up on my radar. I gave it a cursory research glance and it looks like this was a movie financed by some rich religious cult backer or something Christian-esque. I know nothing of this religion or really anything about most religions in the world, so my take on this movie was mostly for what the story is, and more on that in a moment. The one thing I can say is that if it was backed by church zealots, why is Michael Biehn in it who?s been married about 5 times and Udo Keir who I think is openly gay? And it makes sense that Mexico sides with the US in the fight against the devil, but China? You would think the filmmakers would take a more Christian-friendly country.

Anyways, yep, this movie is about a fight against the devil. Even better, it?s a country versus the devil via army warfare. Even better, Biehn plays the president in fatigues and a t-shirt. Even better still, his brother is the devil and has an English accent which is supposed to be explained because he was raised in a military academy in Italy(?). This story is a mess and the suspense isn?t really grand. They do what they can with effects, but it can?t save a really choppy story. The movie starts and ends with biblical scriptures and generic motivational poster images of waterfalls and lush greenery. There is probably greater religious symbolism in this movie, but again, I don?t get it.

But Biehn is really good in it.

(2001 Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith) ok Another of my Easter week reviews..Michael York (John the Baptist-) plays the anti-CHrist in this move...quite convincingly!! I am a big fan of (Blade, the Killing Field).

Super Reviewer

What looked to be a low-budget movie turned-out to be a very good, believable version of the apocalypse. 100 times better acting than in the Left Behind movies. Michael Biehn is always excellent, but the supporting cast is great also.
