Goofs:
Plot holes: Damien states, while talking to The President, that in two years from that time it will be 1984, making it 1982. If that is the case, than The Omen (1976) should be set in the 1950s, not 1976, as it obviously is. This could be due to the fact that at the time the Producers and the studio hadn't anticipated the sequels and the associated time-line.See more »

Better after a number of years...., 1 July 2003

Having seen this on it's initial video release, I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed with the outcome of the trilogy after the promise given in THE OMEN and DAMIEN - OMEN II. If you haven't seen it in ages, I would suggest getting hold of a copy of the DVD 25TH ANNIVERSARY TRILOGY to sample it again. THE FINAL CONFLICT, like THE BLACK HOLE and TRON in widescreen DVD, looks, sounds and feels better than in their original VHS versions.

As always, I won't give away the essence of it, except to say that certain visuals make a lot more sense (the widescreen image does do justice to this, as you see a lot more of the frame) and Sam Neill's portrayal of Damien is even more chilling this time around. Granted, some of the plot points may throw you a bit and logic may win out, but some of the scenes make even more sense than they did initially (Think the complexities of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE'S plot to get an idea of what I am thinking here!!).

One other thing which may throw audiences is the English setting of the film, (but THE OMEN was set in London as well!) compared to the American setting of OMEN II, but bearing in mind that the saga has evolved with the characters, this is a strong point. It is also refreshing to have an American-made film which doesn't resort to too many stereotypes like WAYNE'S WORLD and THREE MEN AND A LITTLE LADY did

Jerry Goldsmith's score is the best he did out of the three films.

Take another look - you may be pleasantly surprised.....
