“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Megiddo: Omega Code 2 (2001)
How bad is it? It's a failed "Biblical" epic, over-blown with some odd choices. Should you see it? I give it a very mild 'no.'
Leader planning on amassing armies for Armageddon pitted against his brother and fighting over a woman; there's some Cain and Abel overlap. The fight scenes are ridiculous, as guys in red pajama dress uniforms, and the President of the U.S. himself, fight without direction (in every sense). The devil, done in okay CGI, controls the European Union and fights the U.S. until God just steps in and ends it. Abruptly. There's also no connection to the first movie.
