Product Description

Ex-cop-turned-bodyguard Jericho Cane (Arnold Schwarzenegger) stumbles across a demonic state of affairs when he prevents the assassination of his Wall Street employer (Gabriel Byrne). It transpires that Cane's boss is none other than Satan himself, come to impregnate a young woman named Christine York (Robin Tunney) - who was secretly anointed by a satanic cult at birth - on the eve of the new millennium and so bring about the end of days foretold in the Book of Revelation. With the help of his partner, Chicago (Kevin Pollak), Cane now attempts to protect Christine from both Satan and a group of priests who believe that her death is the only way to halt Armageddon.


After a two-year hiatus that included recovery from heart surgery, Arnold Schwarzenegger returned to the big screen at the end of 1999 with End of Days, a Christmas turkey if ever there was one. Overcooked and bloated with stuffing, this ludicrous thriller attached itself to the end-of-the-millennium furore. The 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 kitsch character names like Jericho and Chicago (Arnie's partner, played by Kevin Pollack) and lapses in logic that any five-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 savour the verbal and physical sparring between Satan and Jericho, resulting in the most thorough pummelling Schwarzenegger's ever endured on screen. Of course he eventually gets his payback, just in time for New Year's Eve. Perhaps he was touched by an angel? --Jeff Shannon

Even the most jaded viewer of action films, tired of every new entry in the genre attempting to top the last, must have given a wry smile when they heard about this one. The producers and writer could surely have needed only a three line pitch for the studios - "Arnie versus Satan" - and waited for the money to fall at their feet. In the scale of things, this kicks the legendary bout between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris (in the Colosseum, too!) in Game of Death into submission. This is it. The big one.
Yet curiously, for the most part, "End of Days" is barely an action film at all. Rather than the spectre of classic Arnie films that have blighted many of his recent lacklustre efforts, the film consciously brings to mind the classic satanic horror films of the 1970s, and most of all Alex de Inglasias's more recent superlative horror comedy, "Day of the Beast". This critically-lauded yet sadly relatively obscure gem featured a priest who deciphered exactly when Satan would return to Earth, yet crucially, failed to find out where, forcing him to embark on a diabolical rampage in the hope of attracting him.
In this film, Arnie is a bodyguard who has to protect a young unknowingly pre-destined to bear the devil's child. A gimmicky, rushed Millennium setting aside, the premise gives the film-makers a lot to work with. The opening, in which a priest tells the Pope of his discovery, reminds one of "The Exorcist", delivered with a fragile mood and subtlety, rather than bludgeoning the audience with a heavy-handed score or adding wam-bam action scenes. Before cutting to the present day, it leads to a highly uncomfortable scene in which Satan's future target is chosen. It involves a baby and a knife. And a snake. And blood. And its ominous as hell.

End Of Days is directed by Peter Hyams and written by Andrew W. Marlowe. It stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gabriel Byrne, Robin Tunney, Kevin Pollak, Rod Steiger, Udo Kier & CCH Pounder.

It's the end of the Millennium and as 1999 draws to a close Satan (in human form played by Gabriel Byrne) is in town and looking for his bride. That bride is Christine York (Tunney), who 20 years earlier on her birthday had been chosen by Satanists to be the one for the spawning of the anti-Christ. Enter retired cop Jericho Cane (Schwarzenegger), a suicidal security expert whose family were murdered, who after being hired to protect an every day business man finds himself in a battle with evil itself. It's not just the fate of poor Christine that's now in his hands, but that of mankind too.

Arnold versus The Devil, you couldn't make it up could you? Well actually "they" did, but hey, what's wrong with pitting modern cinemas action super star against man's ultimate enemy? The answer is nothing wrong with it at all; as long as the expectation level is set at brain left at the door for some mindless popcorn fun. Which when one sees the premise on offer is all one can surely expect to see. Surely? Budgeted at $100 million by Universal Studios, of which $25 million went on the Austrian Oak's salary, End Of Days, contrary to beliefs, made over double that when all sales were factored in. However, it was still a poor return for such a big block-buster and Universal were most disappointed in the returns. As was Schwarzenegger himself, who was hoping to launch a big movie come back after a run of sub standard movies had seen his stock fall. Throw in the Razzie nominations for Schwarzenegger, Byrne (who was also up for Stigmata) and Hyams, and it doesn't make particularly inspiring reading.

Format: Blu-ray
Now it’s funny how attitudes can change over the years to a film. I’ve only watched this Schwarzenegger offering twice, including most recently. The first time was over 10 years ago, and I hated it. I found it boring, confusing and dire and it ranked low on my list. Fast forward to present day, and I actually enjoyed it far more than I thought. The directing was tight, the story was intriguing and the characters weren’t as flat as I thought.

It’s clear that this isn’t Schwarzenegger’s typical platform for a film; a supernatural horror film. This was originally written to star Tom Cruise who dropped out to make ‘Magnolia’, and so who would be the natural replacement for Cruise? Of course, the hulking action star that is the Austrian Oak. Ok, ok. Maybe not.

Arnie is actually pretty good as a depressed, exhausted and haunted retired cop who is living only by those around him who carry him forward. We see him in the first frame about to take his own life, but is stopped by his partner arriving to take them to work. He growls his way through, and it’s refreshing to see him in an 18 rated film with plenty of violent confrontations and curse words thrown in like the good old days when Arnie was let loose on screen.

Gabriel Byrne is on slimy slick form as the guise of Satan who chews up all his scenes with very little effort, just appearing and throwing some wonderfully evil glances to those around him with a smattering of dramatic monologues. Not your typical villain to go up against Schwarzenegger, but it’s more a battle of faith, belief and mental stamina rather than brutal strength (until the very end at least).
