This review is from: This is the End [DVD]  (DVD)
'This Is the End' is an apocalyptic comedy film that released in 2013 to a positive response and became a runaway success at the box-office.
This outrageous comedy revolves around Jay Baruchel, Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Danny McBride who play the fictional numbskull forms of themselves. They are seen dealing with the events of an Apocalypse in a manner that can be best described as mental.
I'll be frank, this film is pure madness with talented comedians who are at times unintentionally funny. The movie is childish to be subtle and the script seems non-existent. But, you know what, its fun all the way, if not the funniest movie you'll see. There's a lot of energy and the what crazy thing happens next factor kept me watching till the end. The ending is, well what can I say, don't know where that came from. To mix things in, the special effects are quite smart.
The performances from all the actors is stoned lazy, however still cool and entertaining. Each actors funny screen presence is at times funnier than a scene or a joke. My favorite is normally Seth Rogen but this time round Danny McBride and Craig Robinson take the honors. There are other notable cameos who are quite funny.
The direction by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg is just bananas. I'm sure they made this for only one reason, FUN! They've made a not to be taken seriously at all entertainer.
'This Is the End' has an impressive cast that are a treat to watch and the wild premise is funny enough.
