THE PROPHECY II: GOD'S ARMY
Big-screen favorite Christopher Walken returns in a riveting performance as the menacing angel Gabriel. When the powers of good and evil again descend to Earth in a battle over mankind, the only hope for survival is the unborn child of an innocent woman (Jennifer Beals, The Book of Eli). With the help of a mysterious stranger, she races to protect her child and save all humanity...unless Gabriel catches her first.

This was directed by Gregory Widen the mind behind " Highlander " . Considering the low budget , the costuming of the Angels in what we now steampunk style , the Angels are wearing Frock coats and crouching on the edge of a chair gives a look of a bird wings due to draping of the rear of the frock coats . There is one particular scene where one of the Angels Simon played by Eric Stoltz is sitting on top of a chair back rest , he looked just a bird on branch . This show how a lower budget can give us more interesting scenes ,and narrative, As far second Film go's . It is direct to video and even a lower budget , But interesting . Ninety percent of the sequel is filmed at night which is effective cost cutting exercise , It is watchable, especially with Christopher Walken again as the Archangel Gabriel.
I was able to clean it up quite a bit with Handbrake 1.3.1 - use Super HQ 1080p preset and then in the filters section, set Denoise: NLMeans, with Preset: strong and Tune: film.
If you are willing to go through the hassle, the result will be noticeably better than the original DVD release, but nothing great.
That said, enjoyable films - Christopher Walken is hilarious as the angel Gabriel.
I actually like the 2nd film a bit more than the first film.
The PQ and AQ on the blu are pretty decent IMO.
