End of Days Reviews

Arnold Schwarzenegger is by far the coolest action hero of the past thirty years, because he doesn't care that he has a language barrier, that his career is oftentimes trivialized by some of his choices, and he always takes on foes that are bigger than life. Who is a bigger than life enemy than Satan himself? That premise alone puts the butts into seats. What is expected to be a film that pits every power the devil possesses versus that of the human vaguely feels like a man fighting demonic possession. The devil, played by Gabriel Byrne, may have all the hellfire and passion of an impresario, but he is not the menacing overlord of evil that one would hope. Though he is downgraded to an immovable immortal, we still have the plight of foretold victim Christine (Tunney) and former police officer Jericho (Schwarzenegger). Besides their obviously chosen names, these two are pitted against the devil, who has to consummate with Christine before midnight, or else he will not have spawned an heir, and he cannot take over the world. The devil oftentimes possesses people, brings back the dead to the land of the living, walks through fire, and can morph into a scary entity, which does amp up the action. What makes this film so eye rolling seems to be the decisions behind the back-story, because it was 1999 and they needed to make a film about the end of days lickety split. Instead of permeating this action film with true Christian values, or even scripture, there are many instances of mimicking theology for more dramatic effect. Jericho is put into the film as a Christ like figure, though he has lost his faith to an inauspicious degree, after his family is killed. Christine in comparison is always the creepy hostage who seems seduced by the devil's power. There is always something interesting about a martyr saving the world, but with all the off-putting aspects of this, it still feels a bit stilted and incomprehensible at times.

Somehow this ends up being a pretty interesting story and one of Arnold's better performances, he plays a smart ass cop pretty well. Sure, it has nothing on The Exorcist or The Omen, but it's about as good as you could expect an action horror movie to be. There are some really nice sequences and at the end of the day it's just fun, like most of Arnold's movies.

Gabriel Byrne and the side of Robin Tunney's boob aside, End of Days was a pretty sorry movie trying to cash in on the then current Millennium fad. Instead of a Backstreet Boys album it was Satan bringing about the Rapture. Same thing if you ask me, but I digress. If this movie was made in the 70s and had Charlton Heston playing the lead (thing Omega Man or Soylent Green) it probably would be a sweet movie even if only for nostalgic value. But since it's Arnold Schwarzenegger instead of Ol' Chuck and End of Days hasn't... fermented enough yet it's still crap. The premise is pretty much The Omen and no new ground is broken with this movie. Your best bet for optimum enjoyment is catching it at 1:30 in the morning when you're too tired to change the channel.

It's spectacular. A haunting, chilling and endlessly entertaining thriller. Explosive non-stop action. A wickedly cool and exhilerating thrill-ride. A fantastic mixture of horror, action and surprising emotion. It's pure mind-blowing excitment. Arnold Schwarzenegger is memerising. A sensational and powerful performance. Gabriel Bryne is witty, compelling and electrifying.

Arnie's powers were already on the wane when he made this, and it's a stinker. Cliche ridden, humourless, overblown and dumb. See The Prophecy instead.

Only one thing stands between Satan and the rise of the Antichrist....Arnold Schwarzenegger. End of Days is a dark and gritty apocalyptic thriller that's mediocre at best. The story follows an ex-cop named Jericho who must protect a young woman from the designs of Satan to spawn the Antichrist for the new millennium. Gabriel Byrne and Robin Tunney co-star, but give rather lackluster performances. One of the major problems with the film is the poor character development, and Byrne and Tunney aren't able to improve the material. Additionally, the storytelling is rather poor and underdeveloped. But, Schwarzenegger gives a unique performance that keeps the film interesting. There are a lot of problems with End of Days, but it delivers some good action and has and an interesting story (though it's not told well).

"End of Days" is one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's lesser films but still makes for an action packed film that keeps the viewers attention the whole two hours. While both the action pieces and the religious themed story have been done before, they have also been done better as well. I will say that the performance Gabriel Byrne gives as The Man/Satan is perfect and really makes the film more than it would have been otherwise. While this is most certainly a movie meant to be little more than an action/adventure film the added religious element doesn't do much to really elevate it into something really thought-provoking. This isn't the worst Arnold put out but it isn't near his best work. Anyone that doesn't mind a good old action film can turn their brain off and enjoy the explosions and bullets flying by.

Arnold Schwarzenegger vs. SATAN. That's all I had to hear to get me to watch this movie. See, I like Schwarzenegger- mostly for the first two Terminators, mind you, but also as a perfect escapist hero who, for a very long time, was synonymous with action films. Of course, by the late nineties, Arnold was suffering from a lack of good, iconic roles, appearing mostly in bland, forgettable pics and, well, Batman and Robin. But for me, End of Days was his last truly decent movie, and a perfect send-off for his career (though hardly a perfect film in and of itself). The film, as it is, is pretty preposterous: Jericho Cane, a former police officer turned bodyguard-for-hire, must protect a young woman from a sect of Satan worshipers. Seems that, with the new millennium fast approaching, Satan himself has risen from the depths of Hell and taken a human host so that he can consummate a predestined union with the girl and bring about- get ready for it- the End of Days! Jericho, a man who lost faith after the murder of his wife and child, must find a way to stop the ultimate evil without falling prey to it. Jericho is a very different character that we're used to seeing Schwarzenegger play- cynical, slovenly, even suicidal- and you get the idea that Arnold was trying to stretch himself as an actor; in the end, however, the character is nothing more than the Arnold Schwarzenegger we always watch, but with really severe stubble and messy hair. For a Schwarzenegger performance, though, it's not bad, and he even comes close to achieving genuine pathos a few times. Interestingly, this is also a film where Schwarzenegger gets his ass handed to him worse (and more frequently) than ever before, further emphasizing the idea that brute strength doesn't matter when facing the Lord of Lies- but it's hard to take it seriously when he's getting thrashed by a middle aged fat woman with inexplicable talons for fingernails. Robin Tunney as Christine York, the girl destined to sleep with the Devil, does convey the feeling of being perpetually on the verge of a nervous breakdown, but other than her ability to scream for help, her second most defining character trait is her giant doe eyes. Gabriel Byrne is a bit of obvious casting, being the second most likely person on the planet to actually BE Satan (the first, depending on who you ask, is either Christopher Walken or George W. Bush); he has fun with the part, sometimes a bit overmuch, but he is an admirable Lucifer- and the verbal (and physical) sparring between him and Jericho are the highlights of the movie. Interestingly, Kevin Pollak appears as Jericho's partner Chicago (who came up with these names?), a perfect sarcastic foil for Arnold that is greatly appreciated amid all the Satanism and brooding. In addition to Pollak and Byrne, the film is rife with Usual Suspects innuendo, none more prominent than the inclusion of the line, "the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." Unfortunately, the film gets kind of bogged down by its own premise, drudging through perfunctory scenes of Satanism and Catholic church politics that might have been interesting... if they hadn't been done so often before. Mostly, these scenes serve as a sort of window-dressing for the film, almost as if it were pretending to be a supernatural thriller while actually, at heart, still being an action flick. Either way, it's something to get past, so that the action- which is all spectacular, if almost entirely ludicrous- can have more of an impact. Arnold does do his job just as well here as we would expect of him, and with the degree of artillery he brings for the final showdown, we just know to expect a good degree of pyrotechnics. The green-screens for the movie haven't aged well, and some of them are pretty blatantly bad, but the CGI finale- in which Schwarzenegger comes face-to-face with Satan's true form- is still surprisingly good (when they don't go in TOO close on the model). All in all, End of Days seems like a transitional piece between Arnold's high-concept early days and his poorly-defined later work. It's not a great movie, not by a long shot- it can be cheesy, and clichéd, and predictable, and sometimes all three- but it's the last film that had that little spark of pure escapist entertainment that I loved from Schwarzenegger's movies. It's appropriate to me that this should be the first film in which a human Arnold dies at the end, as this was, in many ways, the death of the Schwarzenegger film, but at least he goes out in a blaze of glory. And hey, imperfect though it may be, it's still WAY better than Terminator 3.

Honestly, this is probably one of my favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger films. It gets a lot of flack, mostly because of Arnold's performance. But, I really do enjoy watching this movie every now and again.

This movie was not bad, but it made me laugh. Some of Arnie's expressions were just too funny, and Gabriel Byrne was very likable for a bad guy.
