Darkest, yet most disappointing in the trilogy..........
3 September 2004 | by Huge_ass_ic_ParkSee all my reviews

I loved the first Messiah and was in awe throughout the first and second part. I watched the repeat and still the ending has the ability to surprise. Messiah II, I thought was better (despite many people disliking the conclusion and revelation of who the bad-guy was).

Messiah III: The Promise - I'm not sure what to make of it. I liked the idea and the death scenes very much. However, I was disappointed by the unmasking of the bad-guy. I had guessed the identity and the motive in the first part, which is unusual as I like to be surprised. So with that sorted, I was just watching death scene after death scene knowing who was behind it.

The writer, Lizzie Mickery, was not at fault as she created a good feature. But, there were many darker turns this could have taken.

I still long for them to make Messiah IV. I wish they would hire me to write it, as I would take it down a really unexpected and even darker path...........
