According to director Graham Baker on his audio-commentary, the camera jammed whilst shooting slate 666 [the same digit as the number of the beast which appears as a birthmark on the head of Damien Thorn], filming the scene where Barbara sees a vision of her dead burnt baby. See more »
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 »
So far, I've given the "Omen" films straight eights, which is interesting. It's incredibly rare to find a sequel, much less the SECOND sequel, to be so good.
The idea of the final ending of Damien Thorn was quite creative, and I'm very impressed with actor Sam Niel's accomplishment in fulfilling this part as Damien. It's most impressive, and, personally, I think the ending is rather... not as dramatic as it could have been. I think they ended it all too quickly, but all-in-all, the film is great. This series certainly hasn't lost it's touch, I'll admit.
I suppose it's also very upsetting in places, since Damien is now an adult, in change of the Ambassador position after all this time, but even so, the film is very powerful, and very moving.
Once again, the "Omen" series flourishes.
