Christopher Walken and Vincent Spano star in The Ascent, the third thrilling installment of the action-packed Prophecy trilogy. As fearsome armies of rebel angels continue to wage war in heaven and on earth, Pyriel, the brutal Angel of Genocide, rises to power with the evil intent to destroy all of mankind. The only one on Earth with the ability to stop the bloodshed is Danyael, who was born of an angel and a woman. But he is unaware of his true purpose...until, during a harrowing journey of discovery, Danyael meets Gabriel (Walken), the fallen angel who has acted as his secret guardian. Brace yourself for an epic battle of the ages, as Danyael sets out to confront Pyriel in a bid to save the world and fulfill his ultimate destiny.

Unlike most films which carry the number 3 in it, The Prophecy III proves to be the most energetic and satisfying film in the trilogy. I can't say enough good things about it. The story while drawing from the previous films still brings the story to a close with it's own ideas and new directions for old characters. The best thing about Prophecy III is that it never does what you'd expect. Christopher Walken returns to the story once again as Gabriel the former angel of death now humble wandering human. The filmmakers have taken great care in recreating Gabriel while still having him be familiar too us. Still speaking in that menacing tone of his and piercing us with those eyes that see more than what is there. The movie somewhat mirrors T2. The villain is now the protector. Which I loved. The story revolves around The half angel half human neraphim of Prophecy II who is plagued by visions and compelled to stop the angel of genocide Pyriel. Enter Zophael, an assasin angel sent to Earth to destroy the neraphim Danyael. As before there are protectors. In this case it is the coroner from the previous two films who is tired of examining bodies with no eyes, the girlfriend who is taken hostage by Zophael as Gabriel had taken human slaves in the previous films, and finally Gabriel himself who does not have the lead role in this movie but shows up to deliver very compelling dialogue and give great foreshadowing for things to come. The story is in full drive for the whole movie. A surprising cameo in the end and a somewhat recreation of a scene from The Prophecy will have you rolling if you are a fan of the films. If the movie suffers from anything it is that all three films are well..the same. An angel chasing after a human to further the war in heaven.Read more ›

I liked this one best out of all three. Christopher Walken as Gabriel was at his best. I liked Gabriel in the other two, I loved him here. The premise behind the story was a bit cliche, but its delivery was incredible! The action scenes were also much better, "borrowing from "The Matrix," but then again, who doesn't these days." They were much more what one might expect from angels.
While delivering on the action and gore started in the first two movies, this one leaves you actually thinking. This is what sets this movie apart from all the others of its genre.
Some people have commented that the questions left at the end might indicate a sequel.
The questions this movie leaves you with can't be answered by a sequel. They're answered in this movie, but you half to look for them. (That may be a problem for some.) If being left thinking bothers you, don't watch this movie. For the rest of you, this movie delivers on the questions raised in the other movies about Angels, The Word, and God in general. This movie was the perfect conclusion to the trilogy.
"Get used to it!"

While not coming to nearly the heights of the first Prophesy, it does advance the story in an interesting fashion. We join the adult child of Jennifer Beil's character from the second film Danyael as he is about 18. He is being hunted by one angel and followed by the human Gabriel. Gabriel has seemed to softened on his stance towards the human race, now opposing the angels with which he once stood. His time on earth has seemed to allow him to recognize his place with God and man. Walken has made his [resence more humorous in this third installment and less menacing. But it's still a solid Walken performance. The film seems bring everything to a close, revealing the mastermind behind the war in heaven. And it is Danyael's job to confront him. Brad Dourif is briefly in the film as one of his off kilter characters. Over all, it's an interesting end to the storyline and it brings closure to the various characters we have been introduced to. Not as high quality as the first, but a decent closer.

Prophecy 3 is a much more worthy sequel to Prophecy than # 2 was, and it adds the charm of bringing back familiar characters from the original story. It makes up for that charm with a convoluted story that is a bit difficult to grasp, and will have you checking which side you're on from moment to moment. The new kinder/gentler Gabriel is no longer the mankind-hating angel he once was (aa[...] still you gotta love Christopher Walken: like the scene when he's driving and disgustedly switches off "Earth Angel" on the radio). We are given some idea that God's successor, Pyrael, is about to ascend to God's throne and he plans on starting things fresh with an instant genocide of mankind. The Gabriel of old would've welcomed this since this would herald a new era in heaven I guess, but now that Gabriel's learned to drive and gotten a bit more in touch with humanity he's not as down on "the monkeys" as he used to be. Enter newly-dead-again angel Danyael, who Gabriel has been guiding towards some cloudy destiny for eons that even Gabriel claims not to know. And the match is set: will Danyael stop Pyrael from becoming God ? That's the story, take an educated guess as to how it all ends. Ok, it's a tiny bit deeper than that... figuring out the simplistic storyline with the scant provided dialogue took the most effort here. And how many movies can claim that they are a good vs. good story anyway ? You just can't top the original Prophecy but at least we've been treated to another cool extension of the Gabriel/Christopher Walkin character (could've used more Gabriel scenes, like everyone says), which was worth the price of the movie for me. And the concept of a "new God" as a new threat character is a great addition to the old "God vs.Read more ›
