The Omen (remake)
Fox have served up an acceptable enough disc for their remake of The Omen, but, given how utterly shoddy the film itself is, there’s really nothing to recommend here at all. I would strongly advise anyone contemplating picking up a copy of this remake to instead seek out the infinitely superior original, now available in an excellent 2-disc Collector’s Edition set.
Haven’t we seen this film before? I’ve reviewed the 2006 remake of The Omen, a lazy piece of filmmaking that seems to exist for no reason other than its 6/6/06 release date. Fox’s R2 UK DVD is serviceable enough, but the old adage applies: you can’t polish a turd.
