1981 **1/2 108 mins.
This, the third film in the Omen series, is a major missed opportunity. Although Sam Neill is captivating as the adult Damien, now head of the Thorn Corporation and set to take on the world, the story is bland, and just the same old, same old. Some monks are trying to kill Damien, and the birth of the second coming of Jesus has been prophesied. There really is no "final conflict;" the film tends to end with a whimper instead of the bang we all so desperately wanted.
