emza2511's review of The Omen 2006 (Certificate Unknown / NA)

“I had not seen the original Omen so when I went to see...”


written by emza2511 on 03/08/2006

I had not seen the original Omen so when I went to see this remake had no expectations of the previous films so no expectations of what the film would be like. I did quite enjoy this film, wouldn't say it was a "must see" but I did enjoy watching it. However at times, was unrealistic and not very believable...for example when the child (Damien!) didn't support his mother (I know he's the devils child but this woman brought you up and in the world have some gratitude!) and how no one was particularly surprised by the random presence of dogs in the house one day.

I went to see this film with someone who had seen the original making of the film and they admitted they were disappointed with it, I don't think I would've understood it if I hadn't gone to see it with someone who had seen it the original before hand as bits of it had to be explained as it wasn't explained in the film. E.g. when they went to see the monk who had given the child away, he had no vision in his left eye and was deformed, my friend explained this to me and said it was explained why this occurred in the original but not in the remake. I thought this was a bit pointless putting it in if there was no explanation to why, as it wouldn't have made a difference!

I think all in all the makers of this film expected you to have seen the first one which wasn't the case and therefore I didn't enjoy it as much as maybe I would have done if id have known the story before I went to see it.

I'm glad I saw it but I don't think id see it again, for those who haven't seen it I think its one to rent or borrow the DVD of a friend! (Or better still see the original!)
