Product Description

Amazon.ca

After a two-year hiatus that included recovery from heart surgery, Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to the big screen in November 1999 with End of Days, a Thanksgiving turkey if ever there was one. Overcooked and bloated with stuffing, this ludicrous thriller attached itself to the end-of-the-millennium furor that kicked in a year too early. A prologue begins in 1979 with panic in the Vatican when a comet signals the birth of a child who will, 20 years later, become the chosen bride of Satan, destined to conceive the devil's spawn between 11 p.m. and midnight on December 31, 1999. It's hard to decide who has the more thankless role--Robin Tunney as Satan's would-be bride, or Schwarzenegger as Jericho Cane, the burned-out alcoholic bodyguard assigned to protect the girl from Satan, billed as "The Man" and played with cheesy menace (and an inconsistent variety of metaphysical manifestations) by Gabriel Byrne.

With kitschy character names like Jericho and Chicago (Arnie's partner, played by Kevin Pollack) and lapses in logic that any 5-year-old could spot, End of Days is a loud, aggravating movie that would be entertaining if it were intended as comedy. But Schwarzenegger and director Peter Hyams approach the story as an earnest tale of redemption and tested faith, delivering a ridiculous climax full of special effects and devoid of dramatic impact. You're left instead to savor the verbal and physical sparring between Satan and Jericho, resulting in the most thorough pummeling Schwarzenegger's ever endured onscreen. Of course he eventually gets his payback, just in time for New Year's Eve. Perhaps he was touched by an angel. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the light-hearted. June 9 2004
Format:DVD
Typical Arnie fans will probably love this. He lays his same sort of character, but he seems a bit more edgy in this film and he's lost his sense-of-humour, like he usually has in his other films. But this isn't a bad film. It's all about Satan himself coming to New York, seeking a paticular woman who he wants her to be the mothyer anerchist. Arnie plays an ex-cop, he has lost his wife and daughter and is ready to kill himself. But he soon gets stuck when he has to protect the girl. Let's get one thing straight, this isn't a film were you see a big red monster (Satan) walking around the streets of New York. Satan takes a normal guy's (Gabriel Burn) body and uses that body to walk around.
The film can be very sick at points, and I wouldn't let any light-hearted people watch it. You see sick things like a snake getting cut open, a man being set on fire etc etc. The film does have some odd but very good special effects, you see Satan as he usually is at the end, but it may dissapoint you 'cause he isn't in it for long. The film can be a bit suspenseful at times and can keep you guessing. It isn't all scary, but it might give you a couple of jumps maybe.
I don't have anything else to say really, apart from: Arnie fans will love, see it if want any horror film. Oh, and the flashback scene with his wife and daughter is BRILLIANT!

2.0 out of 5 stars End run around reality Oct. 20 2013
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
End of days(released Nov/99) stars,among others,Arnold Schwarzenegger as Jericho Cane,Robin Tunney as Christine York,Gabriel Byrne as Satan/The Nameless Banker and Kevin Pollak as Bobby Chicago.This is yet another end of civilization movie that has been done far,far better than this ponderous flicker.This thing has more twists,turns and detours than New York City on a good day.
The story finds us in 1979 and the Vatican/Pope is heralding the birth,somewhere in the world,of a baby that,when grownup,Satan will mate with and produce an offspring that will enable his reign over the Earth.Fast forward 20 years and the end of the millennium is approaching.Ahhnold and Pollack are two high profile security guards.Satan is roaming the Earth and chooses to inhabit Byrne's body.Out of coincidence Byrnes is a high profile banker who Ahhnold and Pollack's security firm is guarding.When Byrnes steps out of his car a shot rings out and Ahhnold takes the hit(with the help of his Kevlar vest).Byrnes is saved but Ahhnold and Pollock run down the shooter and capture him.Seems he is a renegade priest who knows of what Satan has in store and who Byrnes really is.Byrnes of course finds the priest and wastes him,carving a name in the priests chest.That clue leads Pollack and Ahhnold to Christine York,who is the now grown up baby of 20 years ago.The men save her from other renegade priests from the Vatican who want the girl dead.Later that night as Ahhnold is talking to Christine in her apartment,his pal Pollock gets wasted by Satan/Brynes outside.Ahhnold and Christine flee to a church where a father,played by Rod Steiger,welcomes them.Steiger tells them of the prophecy to come and Christine and Byrnes apparent roles.Ahhnold returns to his apartment where he confronts Satan.

1.0 out of 5 stars sooooo much potential lost. March 29 2004
Format:DVD
End of Days stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as Jericho Cane and Gabriel Byrne as satan and is an end of the world apocolyptic thriller. Well, that's what the cover infers anyway.
The premise of the story is that a baby will be born to satan which will bring about the end of the world, it's up to Arnie to save the day, again! This film had real potential, I think Gabriel Byrne is a fine actor and a blockbuster movie based on Revelation and the end of time sounded like a great idea but this one way missed the mark. The main problem was the screenwriting. The story just was not interesting. The acting was good, even Arnie showed some range and Gabriel Byrnes' satan was menacing but it really suffered in the story department.
Unfortuantly, every time hollywood wants to make a movie about satan or the anti-christ they seem always have to involve the catholic church in one way or another. Hollywood have a real problem differentiating between christianity and catholosism, they are not the same thing. Catholic priests are not the experts of satan and the demonic realms, there beliefs in this are and the way they do exorcisms for instance is more superstition than what we see in scripture, i.e. using the crucifix, holy water, (are they exorcists or vampire hunters???)Now a movie based on the bible version of revelation directed by say Stephen Spielberg with a monster budget would be something to behold. The left behind movies, whilst being entertaining, lack the finances to really show what happens at the end of the world.
Now I'm a real seeker for a supernatural end of the world apocolypic thriller, boy was I let down by this one! What a waste of talent and opportunity.
