Cheap, but just about gets by
10 March 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE PROPHET is an action thriller with sci-fi elements, starring the one and only Don "The Dragon" Wilson and directed by Fred Olen Ray. With a pedigree of that calibre, how could it possibly go wrong?

The answer is that it doesn't, and THE PROPHET does deliver the goods in fulfilling its aims, but it's not a particularly good movie regardless. Olen Ray has always been a cheapie director and that's no exception here, with little thought or sense having gone into location photography, staging, or storyline.

Still, as an action showcase for Wilson, this could be a lot worse. His acting is very poor but his fight scenes are a lot of fun, and there are plenty of them. Being an Olen Ray movie, the director also finds time for cameos from Barbara Steele and Robert Quarry, but most of the attention is on pneumatic starlet Alexander Keith, who has to be seen to be believed.
