Barbara’s Baby

Omen III: The Final Conflict doesn’t need to exist, but since it does, at least this was the end of it. After both his “father” and “uncle” failed to kill him, Damien is now an adult. Who reached his rise to power in business and politics foretold in The Bible. “And all the world wondered after the beast.” Sam Neill portrays Damien this time around. Being the only recognisable actor to play the antichrist. Which can be distracting at times, but not completely. Probably the biggest problem with Omen III: The Final Conflict (aside from how unnecessary it is) is the amount of attention given to Damien. There’s always an inherent problem with making a villain the lead. They take things way too far this time around. The story also draws from the most important chapter in Revelation. The second coming of Jesus. Something I don’t think the third installment in The Omen series is equipped to handle. With all its faults, Omen III: The Final Conflict at least gave me a sigh of relive that good will eventually triumph over evil.
