Third part of the 'Omen trilogy' with an excellent Sam Neill as Damien
14 January 2009 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This second sequel to huge hit 'Richard Donner's Omen (Gregory Peck, Lee Remick)' centres on anti-Christ personified by Damien (Sam Neill) . Now grown-up Damien (as a teen was incarnated by Jonathan Taylor) is the only proprietary of Thorn industries , one time deceased his forested parents (William Holden , Lee Grant from Omen 2 by Don Taylor) . Damien is named American Ambassador to London by the US President (Mason Adams). A group of monks (Rossano Brazzi , Tony Voguel , among others) get the seven daggers , as Damien Thorn can now only be murdered by one of the daggers . In England Damien is helped by an assistant (Don Gordon) and he falls in love with a TV journalist (Lisa Howard) . The film talks, fundamentally, about the rebirth of Christ and confrontation to anti-Christ Damien . The devilish Damien is poised for ruling over earth supported by his underlings .

This exciting follow-up contains thrills , chills , suspense ,tension and grisly killings . The chief excitement resides in seeing what amazing and creepy murders happen every few minutes of picture . The eerie scenes range from the genuinely fantastic to the bizarre and horrifying images . The movie is quite predictable but we have seen the previous chapters but also its predictability is redeemed in part by the charismatic acting by Sam Neill , the New Zealand-born player , and an effective secondary casting . Colorful and adequate cinematography by Phil Meheux (The Zorro) . Again evocative musical score by the great Jerry Goldsmith (Planet of apes) with soundtrack-alike first entry , winner a deserved Oscar . The motion picture was professionally directed by Graham Baker (Beowulf , Alien Nation) . Followed by an inferior television movie , Omen IV (2001) , and for genre addicts only , directed by Jorge Montesi with Faye Grant and Michael Woods .
