The film was shot in the summer, which is obvious by the foliage. At Damien's reception as US Ambassador to the Court of St James, his assistant's wife is shown in the late stages of pregnancy, and it becomes an important plot aspect that her son is born on March 24th. If she were in late pregnancy, it should therefore be late winter, not summer. The foliage does not match the timing in the plot line with her pregnancy and her baby's birth date. See more »

In the first two Omen films, we were presented with a boy learning to adjust to his unusual personality and his future position in the destiny of the cosmos, but in this last film, Damien is in complete control as he prepares mankind for a " paradise of pain. " Sam Neill exudes a aura of amoral humanity, befriending a female reporter and her son while he seeks to defeat God; One very good sequence has Damien describing man as being naturally evil, claiming that God seeks to keep man from becoming truly innocent. Even though the atmosphere bounces from materialistic to spiritual, the film still gets a powerful message about corporations and their link to politics to the audience. Again, Sam Neill shows us a flawed, but arrogant man-beast, who pushes his way through without a backward glance. With such a performance, it is no wonder that Sam Neill is a great actor.
