The ProphecyDirector: Gregory Widen
The directorial debut from Highlander screenwriter Gregory Widen stars Christopher Walken as the angel Gabriel, who, fed up with God giving all of his attention to humans, decides to stage a sort of coup. With plans of killing all of the good angels, Gabriel decides to enlist the help of a recently deceased and inhumanly malevolent army general. In order to prevent Gabriel from obtaining the help of the vicious Korean War vet, good angel Simon (Eric Stoltz) stashes the general's soul in an unsuspecting young Native American girl named Mary (Moriah Snyder). As Gabriel gets closer to finding Mary, an ex-seminary-student-turned-cop and a school teacher, played by Elias Koteas and Virginia Madsen, team together to protect her. Meanwhile, Satan (Viggo Mortensen) enters into the mix, concerned over the implications the heavenly war may have on his dominion. Later spawning a series of sequels, The Prophecy was released in the U.K. under the title God's Army.

I remember when my little sister and I went to see this when it was first released. We loved it, but also found it disturbing, as Christians, to see angels portrayed in such a manner. Watched it again today and still found it entertaining....although that supposed biblical quote about angels carrying savage weapons in heaven doesn't exist in Paul's epistles nor elsewhere in the Bible.
Excellent movie that we saw a couple of years ago but had to buy a copy of it for our new Blue Ray. I recommend it. One of Christopher Walkens best performances. That is saying a lot. Angels at war.
This is a great Walken movie,its well worth watching.
if you have a 'bible' background, this movie will mean more to you than just the excellent movie it already is. the cinemetography, the plot, even the music...it's deep. loved it!!
i thought that the maker did a splendid job and hope that the second on is just as good
