Overview

In the third installment of the series that began with The Prophecy, the Angel Gabriel (Christopher Walken) has taken up residence on Earth, where he's learned to enjoy the simple pleasures of life among humans, such as frosted doughnuts and driving a convertible. One night, he witnesses Danyael (Dave Buzzotta), a heretic preacher with a storefront church who tells his flock that God doesn't care much for the people who tend the Earth. A blind man (Brad Dourif) who claims to hear the voice of God shoots Danyael several times in the chest. However, several hours after he's pronounced dead, Danyael rises from his slab at the morgue and heads out into the street. Maggie (Kayren Ann Butler), his understandably upset girlfriend, is then approached by Zouhael (Vincent Spano), a fallen angel who needs Danyael for his own evil purposes. It seems that Danyael is half human and half angel, and both Gabriel and Zouhael want his help. A Spirit of genocide and destruction is about to rise on a Native American reservation, and if Gabriel is going to stop it -- or Zouhael is going to bring it forward -- they will need Danyael's guidance. Prophecy 3: The Ascent marked the directorial debut of Patrick Lussier, who has often worked as an editor for horror director Wes Craven.

The Prophecy III, was a great idea. Unfortunately, the execution of this idea was extremely weak. Vincent Spano does an admirable job of playing Zophiel, the angel sent to destroy Danyel, and as always Christopher Walken doesn't disappoint. But where did Pyriel come from? The angel of genocide? Come on! The only way this could have worked is if the writer, wrote into the story that Pyriel was the reason this whole war started in the first place. (That he talked Lucifer into dosobeying God, and then convinced Gabriel that God didn't care about the angels anymore. And Pyriel did all of this so that once all the angels and humans killed each other, he could take on God and remake everything in his image.) BUT THEY DIDN'T!They tried to make it sound as if Pyriel was this super powerful fiend, but they failed with that as well. The ending battle between Pyriel and Danyel was extremely anticlimatic, Especially so when viewed against the battle between Zophiel and Daniel. Apperently at the end Gabriel learns his lesson and becomes an angel again, but what did he learn? That you can make a stupid sequel and people will still buy it?
