Think you would want to actually meet an angel? As this film points out, angels always had one wing dipped in blood. For whenever God needed a people, a city, a nation to be chastised- he sent angels to do the killing. The angels in this film, both in terms of quality of acting and special effects are very, very believable.
Another thing that sets this film apart is it's theological and metaphysical sophistication. A very good case is made for a second war in heaven. This is because when God bestowed his Grace, his holy spark, unto humans, he raised them up above the angels. Some angels, like Gabriel, just couldn't stand being made second to "a bunch of talking monkeys."
In this sequel, Gabriel returns to earth. This is due to the fact, as Lucifer states early in the film, Hell isn't big enough for both of them. However, this time instead of searching for the one perfect Dark Soul to turn the tide of the heavenly war, he is searching for the new Nephilim, a child of the union of angel and mortal, heaven and earth. Such a being would have the power of an angel combined with the free will and divine spark of a human.
Oh yes, you also get more of the humerous" scenes of Gabriel intercepting the souls of suicides to serve as his helpers. In this case it is a goth girl named Iggy. I don't know why this should be so funny, but it is....
I couldn't think of an actor other than Christopher Walken who could have pulled off this role- who could believable be opposed to the forces of heaven and hell. You actually believe that he would burn down heaven to make his point....
All-in-all, I would say that this is one of those rare sequels that is as good as the original. My only complaint is with the sound levels. Much of the dialog is barely above a whisper. If you boost your sound loud enough to hear it clearly, then you get blasted out of the house by the action sequences.

This second in the five movie series of PROPHECYS is a little more coherent than some of them, and a good performance from Jennifer Beals as the future mother of the Nemolith which will destroy Gabriel helps immensely. Christopher Walken is good as usual as the archangel Gabriel who wants to find Beals and make sure she doesn't have that little boy. Russell Wong is the staunch angel hero trying to protect Beals and Eric Roberts has a small role as Michael. Brittany Murphy is well cast in the role of the unwilling Gabriel henchwoman. All in all, a good follow up to the original and one of the best of the series.

The first "Prophecy" is no doubt a classic,and the second addition to the trilogy could possibly be one too."Prophecy 2" has Christopher Walken reprising his role as the fallen angel "Gabriel", instead of searching for a sole to lead his army, "Gabriel" is after a women impreagnated by an angel. "Prophecy 2" provides good cinematography,some nice C.G.I. effects,and a strong performance by Christopher Walken.I would suggest buying the first one,and if you like that one,then "Prophecy 2" is for you.

After watching the movie "The Prophecy" for the first time a few years after it was initially released, I was able to go and watch "The Prophecy 2" directly after it. At first I didn't like this movie as much, the tone was different, albeit much darker than the first one, and the idea of an angel falling for a human had already been done in "The City of Angels" with Nic Cage and Meg Ryan. Plus, I thought the idea was un-Biblical. However, after rewatching the film, and realizing the first film wasn't exactly Biblical, and that there was some slight Biblical basis for the mating of a human and an angel (see the word Nephilim), I was able to watch the film and enjoy it much more.

The film starts out building on the original film "The Prophecy" right away, as Gabriel (played excellently again by Christopher Walken) is cast out of Hell by Lucifer (not Viggo Mortensen this time around). So now Gabriel sets out to find another way to seal the Gates of Heaven from humans which means he must stop one of the good angels from mating with a human woman (Jennifer Beals) before it's too late.

The universe of `The Prophecy' films expands further in this one as during the course of the movie Gabriel encounters many new angels, including the Archangel Michael (Eric Roberts making a cameo), and a reinterpretation of a modern day Eden for fallen angels that are loyal to God to dwell in while fighting the war.

A great sequel to one of the best religious/sci-fi thrillers made. Top-notch acting and great storytelling makes this movie worth watching and sets up the 3rd film very nicely. Also, as a side note watch for an appearance by a not-so well known Brittany Murphy playing a goth chick who is forced into helping Gabriel.

"The Prophecy 2" is rated R for violence, language, and brief sexuality.

Four years after the events of The Prophecy, Gabriel returns and the war in the heavens continues unabated. It is surprisingly difficult to find good guys among any of these angels, but the new plan to thwart Gabriel's long-sought destruction of humanity involves the far less than immaculate conception of a child to human and angelic parents. As Gabriel himself points out, the existence of Nephilim upon the earth didn't work out very well back in the early days following Creation - but it's apparently the best plan the archangel Michael can come up with. Somehow the existence of a new Nephilim, possessing the powers of an angel and the free will of a human, is supposed to bring the warring angel factions together. It doesn't make much sense to me, but hey - I'm just a puny human incapable of understanding the advanced wisdom of heaven's forces.

If you're wondering what happened to Thomas Daggett, would-be priest turned detective turned prophet from the first movie, that question is answered early on in this sequel. From there, the focus of the story quickly turns to Valerie Rosales (Jennifer Beals), who engages in the world's weirdest one-night stand with a man (actually an angel) she hits with her car (actually, I believe he hit her car as he fell from heaven). Anyway, the universe's fastest-growing unborn child is conceived, and it's up to the baby's father, Danyeal (Russell Wong), and the archangel Michael (Eric Roberts) to protect both child and mother from Gabriel. Coming along for the ride this time is Izzy (Brittany Murphy), whom Gabriel has kept alive following her lover's pact suicide with her boyfriend. Gabriel can turn people to salt and turn rivers red with blood, but he can't drive a car or operate the most basic of computers.
