Extremely well directed film is truly underrated sequel to the Omen series.
20 years later... Now Damien Thorn (Sam Neill) is becoming Ambassador of England to becoming President of the United States. Which Damien truly wants to be the ruler of the world. When the leader of the monks (Rossano Brazzi) has the seven diggers to destroy Damien. While the second coming of Christ is born. Damien gives order to his followers to kill all the new born babies that could destroy him. While Damien starts falling for an ambitious reporter (Lisa Horrow) and this reporter slowly finding out his true identity.
Directed by Graham Baker (Alien Nation, Beowulf, Impulse) made an interesting, strong sequel was supposed to be the last of the Omen films until Omen 4 was made for television. Which the character is mention in the T.V. movie. The third film didn't perform well at the box office but die hard fans of the series will certainly enjoy it. Neill gives an terrific performance, the supporting cast are good and another memorable score by the late Oscar-Winner:Jerry Goldsmith (Legend, Planet of the Apes, Poltergeist).
DVD has an fine anamorphic Widescreen (2.35:1) transfer and an good-Dolby 2.0 Surround Sound. DVD has an commentary track by the director but it has plenty of dead air and he gives some interesting comments. But not as informative as the first and second film commentaries. DVD also has the original theatrical trailer with trailers of the first and second movie. This is a satisfying picture that is certainly strong and different from the other two. Executive Produced by Richard Donner (The Lethal Weapon Series). Written by Andrew Birkin (The Messenger:The Story of Joan of Arc, The Name of the Rose, Perfume:The Story of a Murderer). Panavision.
