3.0 out of 5 stars The Lowdown December 19, 2011
Format:DVD
Here's the review that I kept waiting for before I saw this for $7.50 at Walmart and took the plunge:

Disc 1 (flipper): THE PROPHECY & THE PROPHECY II (Side B) -- (The disc states that these are on Side A, but they're actually on Side B)

THE PROPHECY is presented in 2:35 anamorphic widescreen. The transfer looks dated, and is probably the same as the original DVD. It's watchable but definitely in need of an upgrade. Specks and lines abound, though not at all grindhouse quality. Echo Bridge also has an individual Blu-ray out there, but more than likely it's a high-def transfer with the same flaws. I can't vouch for this.

THE PROPHECY II is a non-anamorphic 1:85 transfer, which would explain why EB hasn't given it a Blu-ray release with the other films in the series. Aside from this disappointment, it's a watchable print. I used a zoom on my TV to fill the frame.

Disc 1 (Side A): THE PROPHECY 3: THE ASCENT
... is presented in 1:85 anamorphic widescreen, and it's a clean DVD quality transfer.

Disc 2: THE PROPHECY: UPRISING & THE PROPHECY: FORSAKEN
... are presented in 1:85 anamorphic widescreen, again looking a decent DVD quality.

So until the definitive THX-certified remastered Blu-ray box set hits the shelves in Neverland, I urge fans of this series to keep the cringes to a minimum when exchanging $7.50 at their nearest Walmart, no matter how painful it might be to give Echo Bridge the sale.

EchoBridge brings us a 5 movie prophecy set which to me is excellent.However it would be more awesome if each movie was on a separate dvd disc inside.Echoberidge has always seems to try and group more than 1 title per dvd disc for some reason.Cut costs maybe but either way this grouping of the films into one set is a plus!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great condition dvd, movies start great, but... February 25, 2013
By Annoyed
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dvd flawless, and the first two Prophecy movies were quite watchable...the first one is a must see, as Walken's performance shouldn't be missed; funny in a way that makes one wince.

The second one is very watchable as well, but that trails off quickly. I made my way through the third, then bogged down in the fourth as it seemed located in Budapest or somewhere and I believe the plot was left there as well. I used imdb to get an idea of what the heck was going on, then used imdb to check out the fifth movie, and the plots seemed the same, which was not a good thing...

For the price it is worth it for the first movie, consider the second a bonus, and the third if you ever get really bored.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris Ain't No Angel - not matter what he says! April 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I recently bought this set. I have great respect for Christopher Walken's talent, but I wasn't too sure about this concept. I love books in this area of fantasy, but movies have been disappointing. I don't go to the movies very often, so I had not seen any of these in the theatre. I'm sorry now. Walken's interpretation of the archangel Gabriel is fabulous. The development of the character throughout the three movies in which he appears is subtle and fascinating. By the third movie he has changed dramatically and your interest in seeing how things will play out grows. This is not a series where the quality of the films deteriorates in script, character or creativity.

The last two movies, without Walken, are not at quite the same level of intensity, but they are interesting in their own right. They continue to explore the very Old Testament version of the concepts of angels and their relationships to god and man. Our modern, sentimental view of angels dates from those romantic paintings of the Renaissance. Angels were not seen as being benign or necessarily sympathetic to humans in earlier times. They did the bidding of their ruler, which was often brutal and destructive. You may find your "Roma Downey-Della Reese" concepts challenged if you consider the underpinnings of these movies seriously. The inspiration comes straight out of the Bible.

Leaving comparative religion aside, the movies contain excellent performances, clever plot angles and plenty of action. Chris Walken towers over the original trilogy like a colossus. His Gabriel is furious, funny, arrogant, brutal, and painfully childlike in his portrayal of the spoiled favorite son who has been supplanted in his father's favor (as he sees it) by smaller, imperfect, mortal creatures he can barely tolerate.

And while it doesn't say that it has it, I didn't even look since it has been law in the US for a while. And Netflix just got its knuckles rapped over it. I enjoy the movies, but will give this version to the library and get one with CC for my own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Revelations-worthy start, fades to common B-moviedom November 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An interesting premise, done initially with content over effects values. The story captures in the first film, just "creepy" enough; it holds up in the second, bolstered by the return of Walken. However, the third installment begins to delve into formula. The entire series IS worthwhile, at the right price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it. April 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First movie didn't need a sequel. The first 2 sequels work amazingly well together. Very good. The last 2 movies are conected with one character from the first movie each. Over all, good movies. The last 2 are tied together rather well.
