There may be spoilers the rest of the review
Verdict: Slow Sequel
Story: The Prophecy II starts as the former angel Gabriel (Walken) returns from hell to once again give the angels the upper hand in the battle for heaven. Angel Danyael (Wong) also has plans for this battle which involves impregnating Valerie (Beals), Danyael continues to eliminate Gabriel’s army as the two battle for the upper hand in this battle. Valerie is carrying the child written in prophecy that could help one side win the war but who will walk out of this battle alive?
Thoughts on The Prophecy II
Characters/Performance – Gabriel is back and even deadlier than last time wanting to take his war back to heaven but he just isn’t as threatening as he was before because he doesn’t understand technology now. Danyael is a hugely forgettable character that is an angel on the good side of the battle. Valerie is a nurse that becomes the mother too be in the battle between good and evil.
Story – The story continues to build on the battle within heaven being played out on Earth, this tries to give us a bigger world battle but in the end it just feels like more of the same.
Fantasy/Horror – We move into fantasy more here by learn of prophecies and different angels but this doesn’t reach the horror needed for the subject.
Settings – The settings are once again forgettable and could be used for any film out there.
Final Thoughts – Weak sequel that just doesn’t capture anything from the first film and you can see how it ended up on DVD.
Overall: Poor sequel.
