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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

What a great film, I enjoyed this film and now I have it on blu-ray it's even better. I have purchased the US import as it is region free so plays over in the UK and is uncut which is brilliant. Not all the extras have been imported with the film so you may want to keep your UK DVD. Great film and a great transfer, recommended.

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.

The story was quite original, filled with alot of great action sequences, the effects were good also. Gabriel Byrne obviously had a HELL of a good time acting as the man who played host to the Devil.
I thought Arnie was very good in his role as well - he showed his human acting side - he wasn't indestructible like he is in some films. I think for what Arnie does in his films his acting suits, so that may mean he's one of the best actors of our generation - who knows?
A very good film with 2 great lead performances and an emotional ending - worth a watch.

This being an Arnie film, one liners are relatively commonplace, but the nature of the film doesn't allow for as much oppurtunities as say, Commando, and rightfully so.
Whilst there isn't an overt amount of action, there is quite a bit of time spent on the plot - the prophecy, pre-Millenium Y2K panic, apocalyptic paranoia, religion it all basically repeats itself and says the same thing : 'If Satan has sex with a specifically chosen woman, it'll be the end of the world' ...that's the plot in a nutshell.
Arnie (in possibly a bit of an unusual role form him) plays a burnt out gun for hire, who has lost everything and is very much tired of life) who's paths unwittingly crosses paths with Satan himself and a Catholic conspiracy.
The special effects hasn't aged too well however (Satan's true form looks like a clay hurricane) and there are a few cliche's (train stopping inches away from crushing lead actors for example) but if you can overlook that kind of film critic snobbery you can enjoy a very entertaining film.
Gabriel Byrne is sleazily smooth and superb as the Devil himself and fellow Usual Suspects co-star Kevin Pollack provides a great supporting cast to Arnie as does Robin Thunney.
The soundtrack is typical late 90's hard rock / metal / industrial rock featuring you're typical Nu Metal bands such as Korn, Limp Bizkit but also a rare, post 'Spaghetti Incident' Guns N Roses track!!
I would give this a 3, as the plot is a bit thin and is basically a closet action film, but because of Arnie and how unexpectedly enjoyable it is, it's a 4. Gotta have faith...

I really wanted to like this film but for greatest part of it I simply couldn't, as, even if it had potential, it was mostly wasted. If amazon allowed it, my rating for it would be 2,5 stars, somewhere between "It is barely OK" and "I mostly didn't like it". Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

As probably everybody knows, this film is about Satan. Now, when they are well done, films which involve the Prince of Lies or one of his manifestations can be really great, like "Omen", "The exorcist", "Rosemary's baby", The ninth gate", "True Romance", "The devil and Daniel Webster" and "The night of the demon" or at least honest, like "The devil's avocate", "The imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" and "Devil" (the one from 2010).

However, when including such a powerful player in the game, there is always the risk that things will go into an uncontrollable spin and land into ridiculous, embarassing, too weird or simply absurd ("Constantine", which was an abomination, is possibly the best example). In this film too, sadly, all those four elements are frequently present.

This is a pity, because "End of Days" had potential and in fact its beginning is not bad, even if it borrows heavily from both "Omen" and "Rosemary's baby". Schwarzenegger's character, Jericho Cane (great name by the way) a former police officer devastated by loss to the point of declaring that he lost his faith (when in the same time believing strongly enough to claim being angry at God), is actually pretty interesting one, at least in the beginning of the film. His sidekick, Chicago (Kevin Pollack) is also well done.
