What a peace of shit this movie was, John Moore you are the worst director ever came to the big screen.

The film had a decent start which builds to the history of Damien. Acting was good while the camera angles well done. Despite the positive aspects, the negative weigh more such as the poor screenplay, conclusion and even the scare factor that the original delivered. The kid all had to do was look spooky with minimal lines. This version of the Omen was ludicrous and eventually nothing happened when the son of the devil lived on.

Its just hideous. Really really hideous. When it first came out i wrote a long and scathing review on another site and i want to put it all on here but i just can't be bothered. It doesn't deserve that kind of energy again. In a nutshell, the films bad, the score is souless and the director should be ashamed of himself. And i haven't even mentioned the CGI or Pete Postlethwaite...

A scene-for-scene remake that exaggerates virtually every aspect of the original. A priest with facial scaring becomes Nosferatu with less pronounced ears, an overcast day leading to a sudden, inexplicable thunderstorm becomes a thunderstorm leading into an even bigger thunderstorm, a crazy room encased in crosses and torn out Bible pages is moved from an apartment building to a basement beneath a train line, and a seemingly innocent toddler becomes a dead-eyed Goth pre-schooler... and that's not even getting into the dream sequences. About the only aspect that isn't exaggerated is the 1976 film's iconic Jerry Goldsmith score (Marco Beltrami's muted replacement track is as forgettable as it is even there at all), which is utterly inexplicable as that is the one thing that is universally …

I believe that any movie that kills off Julia Stiles can’t be all bad but this one certainly tries its darnedest to prove me wrong.
I must first start off with describing the opening scene of the film where the Pope (Bohumil Svarc) is shown omens coming to pass that lead the church to believe the Anti-Christ is about to be born. The PowerPoint presentation (your groan here) involves images of comets and other signs including real images of the attack on the World Trade Center and the effects of Hurricane Katrina (your disgust here). To call this bad taste doesn’t do the words justice.
The movie is filled with the aburd including Mia Farrow who plays the nanny from hell Mrs. Blaylock. I can only assume she’s meant to be tempting and menacing but like all the other …
