Here I am, writing again..yeehaa.

It really is difficult for me to find the time and frame of mind to write anything at the moment, but I really don`t intend on giving this up. No way-have met way to many great people by doing this.

So here it goes, finally, after a long time I review the second installment in a – so far 5 movies -series.

The first one still is better, for the one or other reason, but this second part has a lot going for it.

First, Christopher Walken returns as Gabriel. In a wonderful scene, he is climbing out of hell, cuz Lucifer couldn`t stand him anymore,lol. Awesome beginning. Reminded me a little of the resurrection scene in Nightmare on Elm Street 4, here we have a dog , too. But he ain`t pissing on a grave, but fire and dog was enough to remind me of that scene from NMOES4.

Well, this time Gabriel wants to prevent the birth of a nepihilim. He recruits, as in the first installment, as good as dead people to help him in our world. He can`t drive and doesn`t know how to use a computer, so one of the”monkeys” must help out. Brittany Murphy(RIP) is one of them. Also, I think there is Amanda Plummer as another helping hand , but she is either uncredited on imdb, or it is someone that looks just like her, gotta watch the credits again….great cast, all-in-all. Walken steals the show, but there are some strong actors involved besides him. Walken also is in part 3, part 4 I like for other reasons, part 5 is pretty much a lost cause…but more of that later. If you enjoyed part one, this will satisfy your thirst for more, especially Walken. He seems to have much fun with this character, for us it`s nice to see more of him in a role he totally owned and delves in further in this second part. For any Walken fans-watch the first three Prophecy movies, that should do it for you. I had lots of fun watching this again.

  1. Yeah, this is a pretty decent sequel considering it was a low budget DTV flick. Walken is awesome as Gabriel. I like Part 3 as well, they gave his character a nice arc over the three films.
