The Prophecy II is a fantasy action thriller film directed by Greg Spense. The plot again follows Gabriel (Christopher Walken), now freshly back from Hell and on the hunt for a Nephilim. Gabriel wants to kill this human angel hybrid as it might be the humans can fight back against their own extinction. The angles opposed to Gabriel and his genocidal ways, are of course helping to protect this person/ Nephilim/ unborn baby; the war wages onward.
This is a step back from the first film in terms of quality, you can see the cheaper production values and it is clear that this was rushed out to capitalise on the success of the first film. However, there is still a lot of merit to the film and I enjoyed my time with it.
The majority of my enjoyment comes from further exploring this universe. As I said in my review of the first film in this series, the universe and the lore are deep and rich and there is a lot going on to sink your teeth into. It is nice to see some more familiar Angels like Michael (Eric Roberts), join the fray this time around.
Walken is still quite easily menacing, though he is somewhat softer here then he was in the first film; you can see where they are taking his character.
Overall, though it is not as good as the first film there is still a lot of value here and it is still entertaining to explore this world.

The 90s feel
You can tell that less thought went into this one, it feels rushed.
