Stone Alexander always craved power and always knew that he was meant for something bigger. As he grew up and rose through the ranks of the military, he was ruthless and unfeeling. His own family never understood him, especially his brother. The older he became, the deeper he became involved in darkness and evil. Stone quickly became a raving, power-hungry madman committed to do anything to achieve world domination. Ultimately, it comes down to the differing choices of the two brothers and how they affected humanity.
Production Quality (1.5 points)
Needless to say, The Omega Code 2: Megiddo has better production than the previous installment, The Omega Code 1. Sets, locations, and props are all fairly professional and camera work has improved. Video and audio quality are also improved, and the soundtrack is intriguing. However, there are still cheesy special effects and confusing crossfades. Editing is overall okay, but there is too much useless footage that drags down the film. In the end, this is just an average production.
Plot and Storyline Quality (.5 point)
Though it portrays an odd view of the Thousand Year Reign, this story shows an interesting side to the development of the antichrist. Thus, it jumps back in time to before the first movie ever began and works its way up to where the first film left off. However, it does fill in missing parts from The Omega Code 1, which becomes sort of a crutch to ‘fix’ the first film. Also, this filling in is not done in the best way as it relies on information dump dialogue, time jumps, and of course, over-dramatization and sensationalism. There is, as usual, an addiction to creepy and weird spiritual elements and a fixation on the demonic. This story gives tons of attention to Satan and barely any to Jesus and Christianity. Finally, similar to the first one, as this movie goes on, it gets stranger and stranger until it boils down to a very bizarre ending that leaves you scratching your head. When all is said and done, the plots of the two Omega Code films are the same—ridiculous.
Acting Quality (1.5 points)
Acting somewhat improves between the two films, but there are still problems here. Lines are sometimes overly practiced and emotions are often over-the-top and extreme. However, not all is bad here and there are some bright spots. In the end, this portion is also just average.
What was ever to be gained from The Omega Code series? Megiddo barely has any reference to the original dubious premise of printing out codes supposedly hidden in the Torah. It’s highly unlikely anybody but white evangelical Christians will ever see these disasters, but if anybody else did, they would probably find a good laugh and then forget about them. The creepy obsession with the demonic in these films does nothing but fuel sensationalism and the messaging only preaches to the choir. In short, these films are utterly useless and have no part on Christian entertainment.
Final Rating: 3.5 out of 10 points
