Disappointed end to the Omen trilogy. Sam Neill is good at playing creepy roles, but he can't save this tedious story. You would think Antichrist as president would make for a tense film, maybe someday, but it sure isn't this one.

Damien is now the CEO of the largest multinational corporation in the world but the prophesied second coming of Christ threatens his plans as well as a cabal of priests who plot an assassination. The final part of the lacklustre horror franchise features Sam Neill as the son of Satan but any other star names are notably absent. The pedestrian direction also adds to the TV movie feel of it all, as does a total lack of spectacle and even the trademark deaths have none of the imagination or menace of the previous films. As for the so-called finale, a cheap Jesus-shaped lighting effect and a couple of Bible quotes is nowhere near enough of a pay off for a three film franchise. Lacking in thrills, frights or much of interest at all, The Final Conflict is a poor closing chapter to a weak …

'The Final Conflict' is the definitive cinematic metaphor for the somewhat stridulant whimper that supersedes the proverbial cathartic bang. After five years of spectacularly violent and exotic 'accidents', Graham Baker rules that the bloodthirsty devotees of the series deserve a work with the ambition of Dante's 'Paradiso' and the story telling wherewithal of a deranged mute. For this film to be anymore anticlimactic you would have to enter the realm of the paradox, providing that the mere thought of a climax so hopelessly anti hadn't already driven you too insane to even talk about the film. Sam Neill does a good James Mason impression, at least.
Full marks to Jerry Goldsmith, though. His score for this film is so rich and textured that you'd think he was working for David Lean.
