Day 345

movie: Prophecy 5 The Forsaken
starring: Tony Todd, John Light
genre: Fantasy, Thriller
year: 2005
format: DVD

plot: Allison, is given the job of protecting the book that contains the name of the anti-christ from both sides of Archangels in the war between heaven and hell from getting it.

This is the fifth installment in the Prophecy films, and if you have not seen the others, it won't make any sense.   Which is unfortunate. I like movies that can be seen as a stand alone, even if it is part of a series.  And usually by the time you get this far into a franchise the stories start to become self contained, but this one is clearly part of something.

We're introduced to a whole new cast of characters in part four, creating a new arch and a new set of plot rules. And if you missed part 4, then you end up loosing the connection to the lead character and why she's doing what she's doing.  

what do i think i learned from this film?
Sometimes the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one
