Storyline

The conclusion to The Prophecy Trilogy. 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. 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)

Goofs

When Danyael jumps on the motorcycle he hits the gear pedal first, then we cut to see him pull the clutch lever. Since the motor is already running, punching in first gear without pulling the clutch would cause the motor to die and the motorcycle to make an abrupt leap forward. See more »

Quotes

Gabriel: In the end, there's still the word. Everywhere. In heaven and its angels, the Earth and stars; even in the darkest part of the human soul. It was there the word burned brightest, and for a moment... I was blinded.

Pretty Good, if you've seen 1 & 2
17 March 2001 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film follows the original and the first sequel very closely. In fact, you could put the three movies together back to back to back and have a coherent movie and think you're watching one big movie. Long story short: Gabriel (Walken) is leading a band of rebel angels who in the original and first sequel is bent on destroying the human race so they can become God's favorite kids again; this sequel, Gabriel is reduced to being a human (you become what you hate, et cetera), and is somewhat of a good guy (or is he?)?

This movie itself was pretty good. I especially like the continuity from sequel to sequel, kind of like catching up to familiar old buds. The acting was pretty good, the terminator/bad angel was pretty appealing, and Danyael was played well. No big sfx to speak off (this is a dtv, after all), and the female lead goes from mediocre to just plain can't-act-her-way-out-of-a-bag bad. In fact, the movie lags only when the Maggie character is onscreen. She has very little charisma and has even less talent. Everything rings fake, and in a movie where there are angels running and walking around in longcoats, credibility is already stretched thin -- it doesn't help if your female lead looks like she got the part not because of her acting skills, but because she looks good in a shirt that shows off her midriff.

Good movie if you like the Prophecy storyline, which I think this movie was made for. Budget couldn't have been more than a few million, and I'm pretty sure most of that went to Walkens, who got top billing despite being a supporting character. The kid who played Danyael was also pretty good, and the terminator-angel was also good.

At the end of this movie, I can't help but hope for a 3rd sequel. I just love this storyline, it'd be nice to see what happened in a Prophecy 4. Since they spent so little money on this, and I'm pretty sure the returns are pretty good, here's hoping for a 3rd sequel.
