Who would think that is a continuation of the old domain a decade ago — but in the original film is called The PRODIGY — and Russian distributors, of course, lost a lot on the curve localization.

Imagine how many people rushed to the cinema, not after seeing the trailer, hoping that they will show the biopic about super popular music group? Now fashionable things to do: have was about Queen, coming soon about the Beatles (well, there is not quite a biopic, but close the idea), and Elton John... But back to the movie, we call it the omen. By the way, Prodigy who didn't know, translates as "Wunderkind", or easier genius. Interesting note on fields.

The omen turned out... Quite a good Thriller-horror. Without of revelation, but it is quite atmospheric. The plot is cut well, no sagging, the truth and without any twists, develops evenly, but interesting. About reincarnation. Only without the balancing act type of the expulsion of demons, thank the gods. Here the idea laid more interesting. In the film has a couple of screamer, but many times when the atmosphere is injected and wait for skimmer — suddenly it will follow. And that's great, too, producagainst the moment begins to play with you. A fierce treshak and dismemberment in film (well, almost), it is possible to look for those who not love.

Especially noteworthy are two moment. This acting Taylor Schilling and Jackson Robert Scott, who played the mother and child, respectively. Here on Oscar each. And mother of his role was very convincing, without replay, but very emotional. A child... Then we just like a new Mac ava is growing. So convincingly plays two different personalities. Of course, because of their age, without mounting with a second switches between images, but still, it plays just fine, convincingly and powerfully. From the actor clearly has a great future, the more it is already lighted in the same IT.

Result. Enough good, strong story with an interesting plot, atmosphere and great actors. Go to a movie is definitely recommended to fans of horror movies. no, not here some sort of revelation for genre as a representative — the film turned out quite decent. Nerves can be a little tickle.

From the moment of birth and until death, for her mother child be the most loved, smart, beautiful, the most talented and creative!

Young couple — Sarah Michael bloom looking forward to the birth of first child. It has become a much anticipated event to which they long long prepared. Boy name miles has become a favorite and a comfort to parents. With growing up, Sarah finds that its a little something not so. It evolves my it has communication problems with peers. When miles turns 8 years — the strangeness of becoming more more visible and get the parents to seek answers to the ambiguous behavior of a son...

You grin and treat the sea of blood, deadly games on the screen, sometimes even dismemberment does not seem so frightening when it comes to possessed children. Because children always surrounded by an aura of innocence and untouchability as something Holy and sinless. Therefore, watch child the screen does't seem a child — really weird.

"The omen: Rebirth" has little in common with"the Omen" 2006, where the boy born to really was the devil incarnate. However, in"Harbinger: Rebirth" has risen not less scary and even more real topic. The puzzles are almost there, the whole plot lies on the palm, the only question is the ending of the film — happy Il tragic. However, the name of the writer, the Creator of "Midnight Express", you can guess that nothing good the audience waiting.

The star of the screen, of course, the the child who played a key role in the plot. Actor Jackson Robert Scott, successfully debuted in the acclaimed "It" (Georgie), is a managed switch with one entity on another. This look askance, predatory smile will make the viewer reconsider their warm attitude to young children.

Sarah, the mother of miles, was played by actress Taylor Schilling. Last time, it more increasingly moving away from the role of the prisoner in the TV series "Orange is the new season" to the deeper dramatic roles. It is exactly the heroine, who does not know "what to do with your favorite boy and where to go" and the audience she believe sympathizes.

But the actor Peter Mooney, the father of the child, it was a little small. And look at character Arthur Jacobson, and especially for accurate on the contrary its actions.

Be sure to include a new part of "domain" to horror movies, rather, to psychological Thriller. And, the however, the film will tickle the audience nerves and make you wonder, "what was past lives?".

I agree with previous authors that of this domain, in this film, only the General idea, and, perhaps, "asenovska" ending. Everything else, for Menu, son of the devil, has a very distant relationship.

The movie itself consists of stamps. But I always say, any thoughtful viewer, almost never with absolute certainty not will be able to predict the ending. The thing that in such films as a rule may have two junction: or all is well, or Vice versa. When I wrote the first paragraph about the "ominously" the end, connoisseurs of history, say what ended this is a movie. Normal the viewer, to the end, not say how to emerge.

Stories about reincarnation — one of popular the popular in the movie. Like many similar films. But reincarnation are different. It's one thing when a newborn child is immediately transferred, for example the soul of a deceased person, and another thing when this same soul, forcibly displaces the real self. And it can be a bad soul, the soul of a serial killer.

In the real world if the mother said in her child, someone out there is moved in, I think unlikely to believe it. What a bullshit, I agree. Easier to believe that child hurt mentally than that in your favorite Chad, someone else lives, and obviously bad someone is. If not the name of the film (which did not corresponds to the content, but hints events) when you are viewing the beginning, I would've thought the film — next movie about a boy, "which had gone nuts."

This film — not horror. But it's pretty brutal. Especially this cruelty thrown in eyes from that is it from the angelic view of the child. What a contrast is obtained. In fact, "domains satellite has," was always nice on appearance, if someone can remember. It as of the name of another movie: the devil has a attractive face. Well, or something similar, not exactly remember.

At the end — it is not enough that surprised. Yes, there are some moments I liked, a small highlight was, at least in middle and it was pretty valoragua, I was frankly bored in some time. And mainly — the usual clichés. The film is quite possible to watch, especially to fans of such subjects. However, judging by the reviews previously viewed as time's movie fans watched domain, and they mainly, left disappointed. Not know for me, the omen, of course, not the omen, but very similar. Recommend whether to view? More likely than no.
