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