The Prophecy 2 is the second motion picture in The Prophecy series. Much like the original, The Prophecy 2 takes familiar religious imagery and weaves it into something new. The Archangel Gabriel (Christopher Walken) returns to continue his attempts to manipulate biblical events on earth. This time, his efforts relate to the upcoming birth of a nephilim. The being, half human and half angel, will signal the end of the divine conflicts of which Gabriel is a part. This war in heaven is mirrored on Earth as Gabriel seeks to prevent the birth of the nephilim while an opposing angel named Danyael (Russell Wong) seeks to make sure of it. Fans of the first movie will be happy to note that it serves as a direct continuation of the original storyline. Not only does the plot relate to events from the first movie, but many of the cast members return to reprise their characters.
