Movie Info

A satirical workplace comedy with a slick action twist, Fouad Mikati's Operation: Endgame explores the violence that erupts when the organization charged with protecting America implodes, and the employees turn their guns on each other instead of their enemies. Somewhere beneath Washington, D.C., an intense rivalry is heating up between two opposing teams of government assassins. The hired killers in the organizations take their names from Tarot cards. The Fool (Joe Anderson) is the latest recruit. Reporting for his first day on the job, The Fool is shocked to find that his boss is dead, and the office is on lockdown. To make matters worse, the building has been rigged with explosives, and it's going to blow soon. Now, in order to get out alive, The Fool will have to root out the killer in his midst, and make a quick escape before his co-workers catch him in their crosshairs. Ellen Barkin, Zach Galifianakis, Rob Corddry, and Jeffrey Tambor star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • This terrifically populated but supremely dumb action comedy will be a hell of a lot of fun when you happen across it on late-night cable.

  • As the body count climbs and a pair of bickering surveillance guys watch in jaded fascination, the director, Fouad Mikati, reveals himself to be far more competent with blunt trauma than subtle interaction.

  • If the script ... spent as much time on character development as it did concocting its raft of explicitly vulgar putdowns, it might have had some actual flesh on its bones.

  • Operation: Endgame is a film more about the journey than the destination. Forget that the film has a real plot and focus in on the brutally hilarious one-liners, snarky sarcasm and biting cynicism the film oozes in the first half.

  • It's a splattery diversion, but it's neither funny nor profound. It's just ugly, wasting a game cast looking to beef up their resumes with a little ultraviolence.

    The first part of the movie, before they start killing each other, is pretty funny. Especially Rob Corddry has some funny lines. Which, I could tell, were improvised, you just can't script stuff like that. So yea he was funny. And then they started killing each other and the movie went downhill fast. The problem is, the movie just looks and feels like a low budget experience. It's incredibly noticeable because the special effects you DO see, just look like crap. It's a shame, because, while unoriginal, the idea for the movie was pretty good and it should have been far better than it was considering its cast. Then again, sometimes no matter how good the cast is, they just can't save a shitty script. It was free on demand though, so it could've been worse

    This was really, really fun to watch! It is kind of like The Office, full of quirky characters with a bunch of issues. Of course this office is full of sadistic murderers, so it just makes it that much more entertaining. Rob Corddry has carved out a little niche in the comedy world, and has hit his stride. SO well in fact, that any movie that he is in I will be the first in line to see. Really great bunch of actors and a pretty off-the-wall plot make this a very guilty pleasure.

    The action is pretty mindless, but the movie is really more comedy than anything else. It seems like a typical day at the office, until something goes terribly wrong and suddenly everyone starts killing each other. Though still cracking jokes and making sarcastic banter. It's written and performed well for the most part. Aside from a couple of exceptions, the impressive cast list only play bit parts. Don't expect to see much of Ving Rhames or Zack Galifianakis, for example. I was disappointed what I wished Maggie Q's character should have survived at the end, but she didn't.

    A satirical workplace comedy with an action twist. A dark, edgy and wild as hell blast of a film. A wickedly entertaining and savage comedic-thriller that's just as much of as an action film that's filled with great humor and great action. It's stylish, slick and exceptionally crafted. A terrific cast of actors who all look like they are having great time in this film. One of the brightest and most original genre films of 2010. A brutally hilarious, sharply suspenseful and action-packed movie. It packs some cool twist that keep you guessing. A tremendously enjoyable way to spend 82 minutes. Rob Corddy is outrageous and terrific. Ellen Barkin is sexy and tough as nails.
