Critic Reviews for Prophecy
Aside from the bonkers bear monster, the film's one saving grace is Talia Shire.
Many consider Prophecy the nadir of director John Frankenheimer's career, but despite its occasional dopiness, I'll take it in a heartbeat over the likes of Reindeer Games and that truly bizarre Brando version of The Island of Dr. Moreau.
What counts the most is the conviction, the force, and the thoroughness with which the movie was made. [Full Review in Spanish]
Too bad the ambitious pic was so poorly made and also so lacking in entertainment value, because there's a good sci-fi story here if done right.
Truly a guilty pleasure! When your radioactive grizzly bear looks like someone poured a strawberry sundae on its head, you know you're in for a good time!
Audience Reviews for Prophecy
The first 60 minutes is totally unnecessary. After the hour mark Man Bear Pig shows up and then movie is surprisingly fun. The sleeping bag kill is awesome.
It's not a complete failure...but it's pretty close. Cheesy acting, cliched plot and a script that even I could write better, Prophecy is deserving of its obscurity. The gooey mutant bear is pretty hip though, and that scene where it bitch-slaps the boy in the sleeping bag is amazing.
