Day 344

movie: Prophecy 2
starring: Christopher Walken, Jennifer Beals
genre: Thriller,
year: 1998
format: DVD

plot: Archangel Danyael comes to earth with the intent to have a child with a woman.  The child will be a Nephilim, to help with the war between the Angels.  Gabriel, has been released from hell in order to stop it from happening.

 I love movies that follow a heaven vs hell plot. This is the second of 5 movies in the Prophecy series. And, the one that I believe is where the series should have started. 

Walken brings enough dry humour to the role of  Gabriel, to make you wonder sometimes if all his lines were improvised?
It's never explained why the Beals character is chosen to be the mother, or if it's a random thing. That's one plot hole I would have liked to have filled in.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Just because you think you know what side you're on, doesn't mean you really do.
