The ending was unexpected. It ruined the whole movie.....the first was better.
I totally loved this movie! I`m a big fan of Julia Stiles`(Katherine Thorn) and so I`ve seen all of her films. Admired Liev Schreiber`s (Robert Thorn)performance, Mia Farrow (Mrs. Baylock) scared me "spitless" and I just want to adopt the Baby Beelzebub (Damien)Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick. Overall a very classy movie, glossy, well-acted. Loved it!
it was okay for a remake
I was disappointed in this movie I found the first movie to be very suspensful where this one relies more on special effects.
The ending was not as expected.
They didn`t even have a chance to beat the first one. That`s like trying to make another version of The Exorcist. I don`t think so!
REALLY REALLY not what i expected(and no need to say i mean that in a bad way)!
I don`t think this flick improved upon what was already accomplished in 1976. I dunno, maybe it`s `cause I saw the original when I was a kid and now...well, I`m not. Maybe `cause "you better believe in God because the devil is for real" doesn`t really do it for me any more.
This movie is not as good as the original. This version contained more graphic scenes but the original flowed a lot better than is version.
Good movie, but original movies make unfair comparisons.
THIS IS THE MOVIE FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HORROR FILMS. GOOD CASTING FOR DAMIEN!
This is a movie everyone should see - IF YOU LIKE HORROR MOVIES - it never seems to lose the thrill
Not half as bad as the critics would like to think. Did you see "The Matador?" Get real, that was not worth it, even as a rental!
No matter how many times or what version - this is still ONE OF THE BEST - everyone I know loves it
EXCELLENT movie!! HIGHLY recommended!!
Nothing like a good scary movie on a windy, rainy night - this is the one - a must see
THE FIRST ONE WAS BETTER
I found it all right. There was a few parts that I jumped out of my seat. Thought it could of had a better ending.
i liked how it opened on 6 6 2006, someone at the studio earned their pay. Horror is not big lately, it`s all about gore, saw, saw2, hostel, torture and slashers. Supernatural evil yay, thumbs up for the remake, great movie.
like the first it scared me
Original was better
worth a rental
not as good as the first
I agree that the original was better but that`s because I was younger too I think as my daughter thought this was good (she`s 13).
the origional Omen had more suspense
What was the point of this remake? The original was better, far scarier, much better acting. Perhaps the only thing better about the "new" Omen was the inspired casting of Mia Farrow as the nanny. That was cool. Other than that, a pointless waste of time. Rent the original.
Not as scary as the original Omen.
The original was better!
A friend who has been away wanted to see it - YES I went with her - it was my THIRD time seeing it - it just gets better and better - I see things new each time I go - A MUST SEE
This movie was not scary at all. It was a "jump out of the corner with loud noises" scary. Quite lame.
A Must See - again and again and again a good thriller works over and over and over
It was not a good as the first one, better special effects than the first one, but why are movies less than 2 hours, I feel ripped off when they shorten the movies.
the original had so much more depth with a great cast
This movie was not scary in the least. A lot of the Biblical information was incorrect also. Dissapointing all around.
I went to see it on it`s opening night even though I`m not a big Horror Movie fan just to see what the remake was like because I saw the original when I was only a teenager. I did think it was a good, and excellent remake, and that it was even better than the original with some good scares too as well. Jason St.Catherine`s Ontario
despite those who will say that nothing can compare to the origional, this was a very good adaptation of the book (which I have read) The characters were more believeable, and the movie was more frighteneing than the dull origional.
wait for the video
The child is a good actor but the story could use some help
Pretty dramatic but could use more on the plot
Wait for DVD
I personally found that is was better then the orginal and enjoyed the fact that they tied happenings of today in to the film and made it seem like it was taking place in modern times and not in the 70s.
Wasn`t too bad but I wouldn`t recommend it.
A film that deserves are attention. Even though the hype for this movie wasn`t as big as it should have been, the movie lived up to any hype that was brought on by critics and viewers.
It was okay, was not as great as I had hoped with it being a remake of a 70`s movie.
