Packed With Thought-Provoking Symbolism (by bayhorse)
Of course, Michael York's version of The Final Conflict was much more literally on the mark, even though Sam Neill's no less chillingly, charmingly magnetic performance was packed with an even more in-depth, thought-provoking element of symbolism. In this connection, beyond the drawing of a few logically plausible inferences, in conjunction with various questions of "military strategy," it would be quite an ambitious leap to attempt a clinically psychological analysis of Satan. It's certainly beyond much real doubt that, having lost everything he'd been so abundantly <more>
handed, on a proverbial silver platter, he was, again, as Damien so passionately expressed it, in a bit of his own kind of agony; although, for all that, there were apparently no regrets, except for what only his enormous pride, as so well expressed by Milton, had blinded him to foreseeingnamely, the inherent inevitability of his losing the War in Heaven he started. Thereafter, the thought of anything short of taking what he wanted by force had still been no less unbearably demeaning and compromising to him, particularly in the form of his having rather attempted to more honestly earn his rightful place, God's way; although, about as self-compromisingly albeit unavoidably, one can just about hear him, even now, putting his enormous rhetorical skills into action, once they'd been about all he'd had left, by way of personal defense; in his argument to the effect that it was God, and not he, who amounted to the real "Tyrant!" . . . Moreover, now that Satan has had about six-thousand years to no less incorrigibly continue "inadvertently" proving himself so categorically dead-wrong, one should not even need the prophecy, so graciously provided in advance, as to how utterly unbroken he shall prove to have been, even subsequent to a yet future one-thousand year period of confinement in the Bottomless Pit of Revelation 20:1-3!Which is undoubtedly one important reason, from among others too fascinatingly lengthy to delineate here, why God patterned the prophetic sequence of events in precisely this way, in answer to the logical question of at least a few, as to whether it would have done any good for even the Infinite Compassion of God to have provided some kind of "savior," or whatever, even for him; that is, merely assuming, but only in the most academically insoluble sense, that such a thing would have been possible at all; or, at least, somehow provided for, under an alternatively-predetermined Plan, had the Lord foreseen such a fruitfully-redeeming necessity to have been the case. . . . However, either way, one can be certain that God takes no pleasure in having to forfeit any of His most magnificently angelic creations, just as He considered Satan to have been no less personally than symbolically, judicially, and even didactically more than worth the kind of six-thousand-year Trial of the Ages, at human expense, which is now about near its end. Of course, God had been sporting enough, in the process, to have given Adam the choice as to whether each individual's morally free options would subsequently have to be decided on the easy road, rather than the hard one ; one which could have rather resulted in Satan's having lost his wager, right on the spot, thereafter no longer to have been potentially useful for anything, eitherother than the Lake of FireRevelation 20:10! After-all, Adam's choice could not have been a real one, if this hadn't also constituted a correspondingly real possibility. But, alas, it didn't actually materialize, after-all! . . . Finally, there's no comparing the Fairest of Trials having been granted, by the alleged "Tyrant," God, to Satan; with the kind of "Trial" Satan delivered to the Only Begotten Son of God, in return! Additionally, just about anybody worth everlastingly salvaging, by now, should have well-surpassed Satan's continuing level of denial; in his insistence that even democratically, capitalistically "scientific" competition, the kind which has allegedly "synthesized" the "principle" of universal selfishness with a system of "lawful checks and balances" which externally if not motivationally serve to prevent the unscrupulous victimization of anybody in the process, thus at least potentially opening the way for the individual self-actualization of all, is anything better than the inevitably, decisively unacceptable failure it is still very terminally proving itself to be. . . . And, to be sure, subsequent to his defeat at the Cross, Satan has been utilizing the only real strategy he has left; in that, for about two millennia now, he's been systematically masquerading as the only credible thing remaining John 16:7-11 , even to the most characteristically, "morally-minded" of atheists, namely, his Opponent, along with an array of remarkably-interlocking though "contrastingly" effective results! No "Tyrant," after-all, could possibly have demonstrated His point or, for that matter, Satan's, too any more effectively, selflessly, expensively, indictingly, and, of course, no less redeemingly!Than had been accomplished at the Cross!--That is, the total antithesis of everything "scientifically socialistic" or "altruistically" hedonistic as well!--Although, for essentially the same reason, His was not the only "Time of Jacob's Trouble," to the exclusion of still another, shortly to commence! . . . The Tragic Irony is that one doesn't have to tell ole Cool Hand Luke how compromising to God's Image Satan has inherently demonstrated himself to be, and what a brutally painful "Failure to Communicate" it's helped to foster; to the point where His Very Existence per se would appear the greatest of every Impossibility in which He claims to specialize, especially for one who's struggling as desperately as even Anthony Quinn's Barabbas to make Him "compute!" Howard Beale discovered, too, in a manner which didn't turn out to be very funny, after-all, about the kind of Court Jester to which God has been reduced; just as even His Clinically Bi-Polar Sense of Humor is perhaps the most Absurdly Bearable thing about Him, but only if there's really Nobody There to Thus Have to Blame, other than the most "Easternly Wholistic" or "Pantheistically, Adventurously, Amorally, 'Self-Dismemberingly' Ever-Dreaming" Culprit of Dostoyevsky's "Notes from Underground!"
"With all the power of evil, with fire and brimstone, with the intensity of hate and the foulness of Hell itself, I shall curse the world, condemning it to a brief recession." (by badfeelinganger)
"With all the power of evil, with fire and brimstone, with the intensity of hate and the foulness of Hell itself, I shall curse the world, condemning it to a brief recession." Now this is how you make a sequel! The Final Conflict does just about everything right in building on franchise tropes and expectations and growing them to a newer, grander narrative. Damien is in full command of his power here, and it's exciting to see him at the helm rather than the omnipotent hand of Satan. Of course, he still has his minions and another Rottweiler helps him do his bidding, but seeing <more>
Damien at the head of Thorn Industries and how he worked his rise to power makes for a thrilling way to move the story forward. Neill is perfectly cast, injecting a combination of winning charm and darker torment behind his suits and smiles. Jerry Goldsmith is back once more for the score, and like with the story, he expands on his earlier work to provide a fuller, more diverse piece. Some of those angelic compositions near the end are show stopping.Omen III centres itself on an epic story where there are plenty of consequences at stake. We knew all along that Damien would rise to power, but now that he's got it, we don't know whether he'll get his ultimate goal of taking over the world. He has colleague entanglements, as he must kill the child of his assistant to rid the world of Christ, he has romantic complications with Kate, at one point disturbingly raping her in a bid to show how pain can be beautiful, and he ultimately has to face off against God himself. There's a lot more dramatic material there than there ever was in the Final Destination-like crux of the original two films. The vendetta the seven kamikaze priests vow against Damien also really puts the anti-Christ at risk, wherein the first two films his safety was always assured. Writer Andrew Birkin most famous for his Peter Pan writings, of which you can certainly see "lost boys" aspects here does a wonderful job of putting it all out on the table laying it all on the alter? for one truly thrilling battle for the ages.Not only is the story as sound as ever, but horror fans are really going to like the viciousness of the deaths throughout. With the seven vigilante monks going after Damien, and Damien himself killing off many others who stand in his way, the body count here is quite high, and like with the first two films, the producers don't hold back in staging an elaborate death scene. Since this had the films of the slasher era to compete with, the brutality of the carnage has been upped once more, and some of the deaths are quiet unsettling. The most notable being when the ambassador ties tape around the door knobs in his office, linking it all to his shotgun trigger, so when his colleagues enter his brains get splattered all over the presidential crest. Another sees a woman burn her infant son with a hot iron, and we memorably see the charred remains of the baby's face. One more, still, is when the first priest tries to kill Damien at a TV station, slipping up from the rafters and being dangled and burned in plastic as he melts in pain. The effects work is quite accomplished done by A Clockwork Orange makeup artist Freddie Williamson , matching the menace of the acts themselves. Even the events that aren't gory still have a sinister quality to them, like when Damien, after killing an adversary at a fox hunt, rubs what he says to be "fox blood" on the face of a boy in initiation. With that and that uncomfortable rape scene, The Final Conflict certainly doesn't play it safe like a Hollywood movie should.A riveting thriller, through and grue, The Final Conflict certainly lives up to its title and offers Damien a fabulous final send off. The scope is so much larger than the first two films, and more than just a thriller it ends up becoming some grand theological statement of our times. It's pretty ballsy for a horror sequel to depict Christ on screen, but this one goes one further and gives us an ending so grand and fitting that it looks cut from Ben-Hur. As far as horror sequels go, the Omen III is certainly upper echelon. It's a shame it ended when it was just starting to hit its stride, but then again, given what would follow with the ill-advised fourth film, maybe they did good and quit while they were ahead. A must see! THE FINAL CONFLICT is quite an interesting film Damien grows up and the series ends on a satisfying note.
The 3rd one is scarier then the first 2 (by jacobjohntaylor1)
This the a very scary movie. 5.6 is underrating. The first two Omen movies are scary. But this is scarier. This is one of the scariest movie of all time. This movie has great acting. It also has a great story line. It also has great special effects. I give this movie 10 out of 10. Sam Neil is a great actor. Lisa Harrow is a great actress. Graham Baker is a great film maker. This movie is a most see. It is no 5.6 it is way to cool. This is one of the great classic horror films. This is one movie you do not want to miss. The is a great movie. See it. One of the beast horror movies ever. I need <more>
more lines. Great movie great movie great movie great movie.
"Damien: Omen II" must reside in the Land of the Worst Sequels of All Time, and I absolutely cannot stand people saying that this film was worse. "The Final Conflict," the startling, compelling, and above all, well-made, conclusion to what should have only been the "Omen" trilogy, is almost as good as the original.As the tagline promises, ultimate evil now resides not in a child, but in a grown man. And while that idea sounds like a let-down compared to the owl-eyed coincidence of the character in the original film, it serves the purpose of a continuing story far <more>
better than having Damien as a boy of 12 and 13. It also provides a semi romantic subplot, and it means that the task of killing Damien has just become immensely more difficult.Taking up that holy job is the responsibility of a group of priests carrying Bugenhagen's seven knives, led by the ever-talented Rossano Brazzi. But there's another threat to the power of evil: the Second Coming of Christ. And most of the movie deals with Damien's twisted attempts to find and dispatch the infant Jesus.The music, cinematography, visual quality, and dialogue are infinitely better than those of "Damien," and even the grandiose moments dealing with Christ's rebirth are legitimately entertaining and make sense within the plot. It also allows for the main character to at last expose the true depths of his villainy, and make people talk about how Armageddon is really going to play out.Finally, what completely validates this as a great sequel for me is the ending, which I won't give away here. All I'll say is that, though highly controversial, it really pays off, and the series couldn't have ended any better.And it certainly didn't-- "Omen IV: The Awakening" is too mind-bogglingly awful for words, and the 2006 remake of the original is just plain pathetic. There are only three true "Omen" movies, and only one sequel worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as the original-- "The Final Conflict."
So far, I've given the "Omen" films straight eights, which is interesting. It's incredibly rare to find a sequel, much less the SECOND sequel, to be so good.The idea of the final ending of Damien Thorn was quite creative, and I'm very impressed with actor Sam Niel's accomplishment in fulfilling this part as Damien. It's most impressive, and, personally, I think the ending is rather... not as dramatic as it could have been. I think they ended it all too quickly, but all-in-all, the film is great. This series certainly hasn't lost it's touch, I'll <more>
admit.I suppose it's also very upsetting in places, since Damien is now an adult, in change of the Ambassador position after all this time, but even so, the film is very powerful, and very moving.Once again, the "Omen" series flourishes.
This was great i think,, you have Damien all grown up,, not a kid anymore,, this is pretty cool i think,, now you have all that evil in an adult, which by the way is very scary, Sam Neill does a wonderful job in this, and is very creepy evil at the same time. Add to the fact that the plot was very good too,, you have the monks trying to kill Damien for one,, then you have Damien trying to kill all of the male babies born of the 24th of March,, makes for a very interesting race against time for Damien. If you follow the trilogy though the timeline is quite off, but i guess when they made the <more>
first one, they didn't realize it would become a franchise,, but nonetheless, over the past week i have watched all 3 of the Omen's and have seen the new one in the Theatre's when it came out,, i think the trilogy is very good with the story tied together the way it is, overall i give this part 3 a definite thumbs up.
Extremely well directed film is truly underrated sequel to the Omen series. (by hu675)
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 <more>
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.
