YMMV / The Omega Code

  • One-Scene Wonder: R. Lee Ermey doesn't get to do much in Megiddo but he makes the most of it anyway.
  • Ham and Cheese: Michael York's performance was pretty much the best thing in the film. It's even better in the sequel.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: One of the plot points in "Megiddo" involves Stone using a doctored video in an attempt to frame his brother David for murdering their father a decade before the main events of the plot (actually done by Stone), and when showing the doctored video to David in an attempt to intimidate him into going along with Stone's one world government; David attempts to point out there were witnesses to the fact he was dancing inside the ballroom before Stone dismisses it by noting people would believe anything on television, something which becomes very chilling considering the recent technological advances leading to controversy over the potential use of what are known as "deepfakes".

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: One of the first scenes in the first movie almost exactly called Tom Cruise infamously jumping on Oprah's couch.
  • Narm: On the second movie, when Stone/Satan reveals his true form, he looks more like a gargoyle than an actual demon. The CGI textures and the bombastic acting by Michael York don't help, either.
  • So Bad, It's Good: While both films are flawed, they are enjoyable thanks to the actors, the cheesy special effects, and low production values. In the first film, it helps its more subtle with its message than one would expect from a Evangelical flim.
  • Special Effect Failure: The lightning from the second movie looks horrible.
