Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: When all else fails, pump up the thunder and lightning. That seems to be an operating principle behind the supremely unnecessary remake of the 1976 horror fest.
Rotten: I felt like I was seeing The Da Vinci Code with slightly shadier priests.
Rotten: Not since Gus Van Sant inexplicably directed a shot-by-shot remake of Hitchcock's Psycho has a thriller been copied with so little point or impact.
Rotten: Other than the obvious marketing advantages of releasing this movie on 06/06/06, a second Omen seems completely unnecessary, even if it is kind of fun.
1976's "The Omen" is one of the greatest horror films of all time. 2006's "The Omen is one of the worst horror films of all time. This movie is NOTHING like the first one. It's not even a funny terrible horror film like "Child's play" or "The Leprechaun." This movie blows the donkey. Don't rent or buy.
Good (If you haven't seen the original)
I saw this movie before I saw the original, and I thought it was good. Then I saw the original, and compared to the original this movie is complete crap.
Why didn't anybody like it?
This movie had suspense and it also had very interesting devilish points of view. So, besides for keeping me on the edge, it also kept my intellectual side of my brain working. I love movies that make you feel like your spending time using your imagination and mind while also entertaining you. Also, damion, job well done.
