This is the 25th Anniversary Edition of 'The Omen', 'Damien: Omen II', and 'Omen III: The Seven Blades', in one box. This must be one of the smoothest rysar trilogy in history. Each film is good in its own right and adds something and advance the plot of the whole. The first two films feel like more interconnected then 'Omen II' feels like a direct continuation of the original. 'Omen III' feels like a little self in the series, and more modern. The latter perhaps is not surprising given that there is 7 years between films.
The first film feels like the most stylish and best-directed of the three. Every scene in 'The Omen' is well thought out and contribute to the whole of the plot. Although the photo in the original is that simple parts, very beautiful. One contributing factor is the stage design in some outdoor scenes piecewise almost feels theatrical. The original is also the most eerie of the three. Some scenes are gruesomely macabre. The final film feels like the most philosophical and spiritual in the series. For the first time in the film series analyzes the evil. However, it is more of a questioning without any concrete answers. It is suggested, however, that the evil is not the same as decadence; Damien is not directly dekandensen embodied. It is more a question of power for power's sake. These issues contribute to a depth in the film and carve out the character more. Even in 'Omen II' was offered the viewer a moment of gradation of the character Damien in the fact that he becomes despondent when he becomes aware of who he is and what a terrible mission he has. Damien, however evil to the core in the final film, although he demonstrates to be sophisticated, as much as he is manipulative. Fragility peeping at Damien in 'Omen II' is gone and replaced by a self-righteous self-reliance. However, the intimidation factor in 'Omen III' not as high as in the original, although it has a sinister dark atmosphere about them. It manages to be more nasty than 'Damien II'. It is also wonderful to see Sam Neill play as compelling as the antichrist. The boy in orignalfilmen is very well chosen with its distinctive look and its diabolic smile. But he says or figure does not even so much in the movie. In the second film takes Damien considerably more space and show more character, and in the final film, he is the most fascinating and interesting. 'Omen II' feels like the movie, a stairwell between the other films, even if it is an absolutely acceptable roll. But I feel like if you put the most energy into the macabre death scenes, as if that is the whole point of the movie. It does not contribute to an equally terrible mood as in the original, or even compared to the final film, though it is macabre and well orchestrated. The film feels at times also a little chewy and the soundtrack is the weakest in the film series, although it is approved. The acting in 'Omen II', however, is generally accepted, and the film is shaping up and become real good towards the end. The actor who plays Damien is gruesomely good and is very similar to Damien in the first film.
This boxutgåva have a few years old (2001) but presents an anamorphic image in all cases and a reference image in terms of the first two films. 'Omen III' drawn with a lighter form of afterimage but is totally way still pretty good. In particular, the first film has been considerably enhanced with the glass clear and color-loving image. The sound is in Dolby Surround and sounds to date, ie. rather archaic with pretty bad dynamism. Surround shown are not particularly active in the first and last films, but hear the richer in 'Omen II'. The extras consist only of commentary from the directors and producer, and trailers from all the movies.
