The Prophecy: Uprising (2005) Review

The Prophecy: Uprising (2005) is an 88-minute American fantasy horror-thriller film that is the fourth installment in The Prophecy series continuing with the war between angels. Director Joel Soisson (Dracula 2000 (2000), Piranha 3DD (2012), Mimic 2 (2001), Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)) did a wonderful job intertwining two stories together that receives my undivided attention. There were a few new twists in this thriller with good angels vs. bad angels. Romania was a brilliant place to shoot the movie as it gave the film the dark feel it much needed.

The Prophecy: Uprising makes you think that if you were the one to find the Lexicon Bible that begun writing the end of Revelations by itself and started hearing a voice that tells you that you hold the faith of humanity in your hands - what will you do? Allison (Kari Wuhrer - Eight Legged Freaks (2002), Anaconda (1997), Sliders (1997-2000), Hellraiser: Deader (2005)) stumbled across the Lexicon and became the keeper of the Lexicon. There is a ton load of crimes in the streets where detectives are trying to find a serial killer that rips his victim’s hearts out of their body.

All of the actors gave us exceptional performances, but there were a few scenes that were not believable including the romance scene between Allison and John. The angels were almost flawless as they moved smoothly. I applaud the editor for doing an excellent job putting the film together as I can imagine it was no easy task and also the makeup department for the high-quality makeup effects. With all said, I must admit that the movie was a little hard to follow with the plot being convoluted leading the film to appear somewhat incomplete. The Prophecy: Uprising is not an entirely bad film and fans should definitely see if they have not.
