I saw a sneak preview of The Omen tonight. At first, I couldn't tell if it was going to be a spoof of the original or if it was going to be a serious remake. Audience members were laughing at parts which were supposed to be serious.
and then ...
the entire audience jumped.
and a little while later jumped again.
by the end of the movie, the audience was cheering and totally wrapped up in the movie.
The director did a great job of pulling us in.
Does everyone already know the basic plot? If not, I think it's best if I don't say anything about the plot, so I don't give away anything.
Mia Farrow was great in her role as Damien's nanny. Julia Stiles was the one who was unintentionally funny at the beginning of the movie, or maybe it was intentional, because she ended up pulling off the role quite well.
but the movie belonged to Liev Schreiber. He wisely did not try to do the same as Gregory Peck, and was excellent in the role.
It's worth seeing. Be forewarned - the movie is much more graphic than the original, so don't take the kids.
