critics consensus

Even with the force of a "classic" behind it, remake fever can't hold up the hollowness of this style-drenched Omen. Read critic reviews

    Fox decided to remake The Omen for the release date 06/06/06, a neat little gimmick. Better yet, they decided to only incorporate the events of the first film, the one that's actually good.

    An intense supernatural thriller, The Omen is a faithful remake that delivers all of the terror of the original. The plot is essentially the same; an American diplomat is unwittingly tricked into adapting a child who turns out to be the Antichrist. Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles lead the cast and give exceptionally strong performances. The directing is also quite impressive, and is able (through effective pacing and editing) to build tension and suspense especially well. Though it lacks some of the atmosphere of the original, this remake of The Omen is just as powerful.

    Meh, bad casting was one of the biggest issue here, as well as the outdated filming technique that back fired. I could see a lot of resemblance with the original but it was just not good enough to be compared to the classic. The stupid première date only made the film more notorious

    Pretty good for a remake especially given how excellent the original was.
