Mediocre Sequel 2: The Descent, 11 May 2002
Author: JoeytheBrit from

More of the same in the third instalment of the Prophecy series, and, by now, the quality of storyline is coming perilously close to the level of your standard stalk-and-slash flick. Not as dark as No 2, and not so impenetrable, this movie does at least move at a faster pace, even though there is very little to absorb the viewer.

Struggling to fill its short running time of 83 minutes, the movie is padded with new hero Danyael's regular and monotonous flashbacks/visions, which are presumably intended to intrigue the viewer but only succeed in first confusing, and then boring them. Patrick Lussier's flashy, tricksy direction is also a major distraction that adds nothing. Christopher Walken, the one constant throughout the series, swaps over to the good side in this one, and is relegated to a supporting role, which is a shame because he is always interesting to watch. Despite this, he has the best scene in the movie – driving along a desert highway, playing his horn to Telstar (I think) on the radio; totally irrevelant to the plot, and at odds with the tone of the movie, but a real nice surprise in the midst of all the mediocrity. Vincent Spano is ok as the new bad guy, but he just can't compete with Walken in the previous two movies.

For diehard fans of the series only.
