There aren't a lot of surprises once the action starts, and it is definitely violent, and bloody, but in a 'im gonna kill you creatively, and make cracks and wise-ass comments while I do it' kind of way.
If you are looking for friend green tomatoes, look elsewhere. If you have a dark sense of humor, then you should enjoy every last minute of it.
Enjoy Rob Corddry in his best role since H&K Guantanmo.
However, there is something not quite right about the way some of the agents including "Devil" (Jeffrey Tambor) act. With a new president about to be inaugurated, there is some conspiracy going on. And it looks like things are definitely not right when one of them is found horribly murdered (with pencils stuck in the body).
What follows in this dark action comedy is a survival game of government agents killing each other. The idea is fine and the cast is interesting, but the story is poorly written (script penned by Sam Levinson, director Barry Levinson's son), and the film is woefully directed. Actors like Maggie Q, Ving Rhames and Zach Galifianakis are all wasted in forgettable roles. Action scenes are amateurish. Rob Corddry and Ellen Barkin are fun to watch, but not enough to save this mess.
Produced by Richard Kelly of "Donnie Darko" fame, "Operation: Endgame" becomes tedious towards the end, taking itself too seriously. With a running time of less than 90 minutes, "Operation: Endgame" feels very long, not knowing what it really wants to do.
While Zach's minor time on the screen playing the same aloof, out of touch character as always fits him...the rest of the movie was unfortunately a waste. And while there will be defenders of this film claiming that this is a black comedy, the only thing that's black is the hole in my soul where happiness used to reside until this movie devoured it.
I kept watching with the hope that somehow the movie would eventually redeem itself. With a cast like this you'd think SOMEONE could make this movie worthwhile.
In the end I'm left wishing the cover would have been as bland as the movie and saved myself the torture of watching it...At least there's still hope for you. Flee now!
It has a cast but if you're expecting Maggie Q. or Zach G., they're barely in it. And, if your on a time limit say, a buildings about to go down, are you gonna tickle, slap, or whatever happens in extremely long fight scenes? or are you gonna kill your obstacle.
As for the rest of the movie, it's mostly great. Mostly. Chock full of black humor and over the top violence, it had me chuckling until the last 15 minutes. That's where things start to fall apart. The last 15 minutes feel very rushed, slapping the audience in the face with story elements that are meant to tie up the plot. Part of this is of course the writer trying desperately to explain why Zach Galifianakis' character, the Hermit, was even there to begin with, as "the movie studio made me do it" wouldn't have been an acceptable reason. (Even though it would have been the most valid reason.) What it ultimately boils down to is one man with great power suddenly developing a conscience and deciding to put an end to the manipulation of the world. But the manner in which the movie brings us to this end is a bit convoluted. No more insane and illogical than your average anime movie, mind you.Read more ›
