The Prophecy: Forsaken Review

Synopsis:

Allison, the new guardian to the ancient manuscript, continues to try to protect it from another group of renegade angels bent on bringing on the end of the world.

The Prophecy: Forsaken (2005) is a 1h 15-min rated R American fantasy horror-thriller film that is the fifth and final installment in The Prophecy franchise and was shot in Romania. Director Joel Soisson (Dracula 2000 (2000), Piranha 3DD (2012), Mimic 2 (2001), Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)) failed at giving us a movie that is worthy of looking at because the film failed in every possible way.

The Prophecy: Forsaken follows the events of The Prophecy: Uprising (2005) where we see Allison (Kari Wuhrer - Anaconda (1997), Sliders (1997-2000), Hellraiser: Deader (2005)) in Bucharest protecting the Prophet Lexicon. The Prophet Lexicon is an ancient, mysterious bible that writes by itself without help from anyone that can foretell the name of who the coming Antichrist is in the last chapter on the apocalypse. Stark (Tony Todd - The Man from Earth (2007), The Rock (1996), Candyman (1992), Platoon (1986)) who is an evil/jealous leader of a group of renegade angels called Thrones. Stark told Dylan who is a hitman to kill Allison so that he can retrieve information about who the next Antichrist will be. Dylan (Jason Scott Lee - Back to the Future Part II (1989), Soldier (1998), Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993), Lilo & Stitch (2002)) decides to help Allison after he became attracted to her. Will Dylan be able to save Allison from the Thrones and all other dangers she faces as she protects the ancient book?

The Prophecy: Forsaken was not interesting, not scary, not creepy, not thrilling, not thought provoking, not intense, filled with plot holes, bad acting, and was not suspenseful. The ending was predictable for those who has watched the previous four installments. The movie was terrible, and I do not like hurting peoples feelings, but sometimes you have to say something, or else the film team will not know how much of a terrible job they gave us. I am not sure why the movie team felt the need to make sequels of this film as they are a waste of money and waste of the fans time because the sequels are nothing compared to the original The Prophecy (1995).
