Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Surprisingly, the appearance of perennial film weirdo Walken in slicked-back raven hair actually marks the point where The Prophecy begins to slow down and deteriorate."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Christopher Walken is a wonderful thing."
‑ Irene Ferris,
"Chris Walken is worth the price of admission"
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"I like to think that Walken flipped through the script, realized how lame it was, and decided to have some fun anyway."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"It looked a lot fresher when it was new, but it's still intriguing."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Paradise Lost reimagined as a droll B horror picture. Walken is terrific, as always, and Viggo Mortensen's cameo is worth the price of admission alone."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"Angels battling on earth, a hammy Walken; church is more interesting."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"Top-notch combination of Supernatural thrills and Walken-esque sensation"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
