Trivia

The film's storyline applied retroactive continuity changes to the franchise's time line. Damien Thorn had been a child in The Omen (1976) and a teenager in Omen II: Damien (1978) and could have not been an adult in his thirties by the time the film was released in present day times of 1981. As such, the movie significantly retconed the events from the first two films back further in the past to accommodate the series story's temporal shift. See more »

Goofs

In the first scene set in the Fernbank Observatory, the rate of acceleration of the stars under observation is given as "...a couple of thousand Parsecs, minimum". In real life the Parsec is a unit of distance, not acceleration. (However, this could be a sly reference to the famous misuse of the term "Parsec" in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope.) See more »

Quotes

Damien Thorn: Nazarene, charlatan, what can you offer humanity? Since the hour you vomited forth from the gaping wound of a woman, you have done nothing but drown man's soaring desires in a deluge of sanctimonious morality. You've inflamed the pubertal mind of youth with your repellent dogma of original sin. And now you absolve in denying them the ultimate joy beyond death by destroying me ? But you will fail, Nazarene, as you have always failed. We were both created in man's image, but while you were born ...

Extremely well directed film is truly underrated sequel to the Omen series.
1 March 2007 | by hu675See all my reviews

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. (****/*****).
