5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven's war has returned to earth. April 30 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Think you would want to actually meet an angel? As this film points out, angels always had one wing dipped in blood. For whenever God needed a people, a city, a nation to be chastised- he sent angels to do the killing. The angels in this film, both in terms of quality of acting and special effects are very, very believable.
Another thing that sets this film apart is it's theological and metaphysical sophistication. A very good case is made for a second war in heaven. This is because when God bestowed his Grace, his holy spark, unto humans, he raised them up above the angels. Some angels, like Gabriel, just couldn't stand being made second to "a bunch of talking monkeys."
In this sequel, Gabriel returns to earth. This is due to the fact, as Lucifer states early in the film, Hell isn't big enough for both of them. However, this time instead of searching for the one perfect Dark Soul to turn the tide of the heavenly war, he is searching for the new Nephilim, a child of the union of angel and mortal, heaven and earth. Such a being would have the power of an angel combined with the free will and divine spark of a human.
Oh yes, you also get more of the humerous" scenes of Gabriel intercepting the souls of suicides to serve as his helpers. In this case it is a goth girl named Iggy. I don't know why this should be so funny, but it is....
I couldn't think of an actor other than Christopher Walken who could have pulled off this role- who could believable be opposed to the forces of heaven and hell. You actually believe that he would burn down heaven to make his point....
All-in-all, I would say that this is one of those rare sequels that is as good as the original. My only complaint is with the sound levels. Much of the dialog is barely above a whisper. If you boost your sound loud enough to hear it clearly, then you get blasted out of the house by the action sequences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice legend based blast May 1 2002
By Hendy
Format:VHS Tape
I don't know what it is about Christopher Walkern that makes my flesh creep (no offence Mr. Walkern - I put it down to your acting skill). The story is based on a second war in heaven... this time, it's not "Old Nick" being cast down but all the good guys getting jarred with god coz he's let people into heaven and they already have a priviledge - a soul - which Angels don't have. So they (rightfully) feel snubbed that having given god a monumental headache since creation, he has now elevated them above his loyal and unquestioning servants.
There is a single soul which is blacker than all the others, and a lot of the angels want it in order to become immortal... the hunt is on!
Lots of nice spins on legend stuff... I particularly like the bit where Gabriel is reasoning with a human that he (as a - now - brutal self-serving assasin) has a right to be mentally ruined having spent eternity with "one wing dipped in blood". The murdering of men, women & children, done at the order of god without question has taken it's toll on them.
Quite jumpy in places, not as scarey as the Omen(s) or other top-line legend-horrors but a good story none-the-less

1.0 out of 5 stars El Lame'o April 22 2002
Format:DVD
This thing reminds me of the third Highlander; it even had the requisite sex scene at the most cliched moment. The Prophecy was original enough to not even need a romantic relationship. Walken and the autopsy guy are in this, but the rest of the original cast isn't...including Viggo Mortensen's totally awesome Lucifer, now played by some second rate actor...actually, everyone else in this is second rate. They also overuse the cool ideas from the first like the perching, the kissing two fingers thing, Gabriel's "shoosh" with a finger under their nose, etc, so that it feels like a bad TV series adaptation. The dynamic range of the sound is really wanky too, probably the reason that Sci-Fi and Horror Academy liked it so much. Geeky horror guys always like really loud sfx compared to dialog. I had to force myself to watch the whole thing since I spent [money] to rent it. Prophecy III could only be more of the same. Wow, I just remembered something I liked: the gothy girl and Walken's dialog was kinda entertaining, but that's it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough Walken! Jan. 7 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was very unpleasant for me to watch for about 80% of the time. Not enough Chris Walken! Isn't it supposed to be HIS movie? Well, that's what we're told, but instead we are forced to gag through scenes of terrible performances from very, VERY unintelligent characters, and laughable special effects. Take, for example, the fact that most death scenes involve someone falling on, or through, what afterwards appears to be a bloody stake. I can imagine someone bringing a box full of them to the set, or, more reasonably 20 of them. And most of the characters were SO annoying, I WANTED Gabriel to kill them. The only saving grace of this patchy, incoherent movie is of course Walken, who is indeed the king of creepiness (and gorgeousness I might add), and who's brilliant performance could have saved the movie if he were in more of the scenes. Another good point is Brittany Murphy, who hardly says a thing, and hardly has a character, but still manages to give a better performance then most of the cast.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Jan. 31 2000
Format:DVD
This movie is a real downwer. The star attraction is the amazing christopher Walken, though there is very little Walken to be found. After the movie I thought, "Wheres the walken?", and "Is that all the walken you got?" and, "Theres more walken in a low fat muffin than there is in this movie!"
The cast was terrible. The plot was disjionted. It was a religoes film but without any of the cool religoes imigry or dialog you get in other evil angel type movies.
The lighting was terrible and the different factions of angels made things unreasonable confusing. The fighting scenes took place in a darkened ally and i was left wondering who was fighting who and who really won?
The female lead is boring and unentertaining.
There were references to "The Prophesy" however they had a different character playing the devil and the cop from the first movie wasn't given a chance to show his talents in the sequel.
Don't waste your time with this movie. It got one star for having walken, and another star for the theme (the second war in heaven) It gets zero stars for how walken and the theme were used.
