As the War in Heaven and on Earth rages on, Pyriel, the Angel of Genocide, rises to power, intending to destroy all of mankind. The only one who stands in his way is Danyael, who was born of an Angel and a woman, but Danyael is unaware of his purpose, until he runs into Gabriel, who has now become a human after the events of The Prophecy 2, and is acting as his secret guardian. Now, the fate of the world hangs in the balance as Danyael sets out to confront Pyriel and finally fulfill his destiny. Written by Paul McCluskey (pgm03uk)

For a Part Three, Pretty Decent
29 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once again, Christopher Walken returns as the Arch-Angel Gabriel. As the War in Heaven and on Earth rages on, Pyriel, the Angel of Genocide, rises to power, intending to destroy all of mankind.

Brad Dourif as the zealot really makes this movie for me, but we also have classic Walken -- the talk, the mannerisms, explaining his drivers license... this is the Walken that has made him a cultural icon.

Why Pyriel is depicted as being against humanity, or being an angel of genocide, is unclear. Traditionally, he has the task of examining the soul of each person brought to heaven after death. He works for God, not Satan. But I suppose angels can rebel at any time, they need not do so only at the time Satan originally did.

All in all not a bad little film, and the director (Lussier) really deserves more credit than he gets for his contributions to the horror genre.
