Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...the moment The Final Conflict turns to dialogue and a plot, it loses its inspiration."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Neill is fire and brimstone incarnate, but he can't seem to seal the deal."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Grim, disturbing devil doings continue."
‑ Steve Crum,
"it's getting silly now"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"The Final Conflict, from 1981, is really quite a bad movie, not actually awful enough to ever have achieved cult status..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"The bad news is that Damien has a whole movie to get through before he gives up the ghost, and that the movie is a grisly one."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The Omen trilogy comes to a close with this expectedly uneven installment..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The Omen III is a decent demonic thriller, but it's not the Beelzebub's knees."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"Pretty damn funny."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"This film can't even be very fascinating... The magic of the original films is definitely gone in this one."
‑ Ted Prigge,
"Sam Neill is adequate as Damien Thorne, presenting a smarmy and very smug quality to the character."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The gas had pretty much run out of the Omen franchise by the time of this second sequel, and yet THE FINAL CONFLICT is quite an interesting film ..."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"The third best of the Omen films, but still a satisfying conclusion to a great trilogy."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"Damien grows up ... and the series grows dead."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
