Wonderful!
23 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

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.
