Nice continuation from part 4...
This fifth movie in "The Prophecy" saga wasn't actually as bad as I had expected it to be, given the generic outcome of the fourth movie.
Sure, the Gabriel character is still missing from the franchise as is actor Christopher Walken, and the franchise just isn't fully the same without him in the Gabriel role.
"The Prophecy: Forsaken" was actually a good continuation of the storyline presented in the fourth movie, and it made more coherent sense and had a more thoroughly planned plot to it.
Again, as it has been throughout all the movies in "The Prophecy" franchise, then they have a good ensemble of actors and actresses on the cast list. It was nice to see Kari Wuhrer return to the role of Allison. The movie also boasts the likes of horror icon Tony Todd and I was genuinely surprised to see Jason Scott Lee in a movie such as this.
This movie doesn't stand well on its own in terms of being a stand-alone movie, because you definitely need some prior knowledge of the storyline and characters to fully grasp and appreciate what is happening throughout the course of "The Prophecy: Forsaken".
All in all, "The Prophecy: Forsaken" turned out better than I had initially anticipated. However, it is hardly a movie that warrants more than a single viewing.
