Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rival squads of sociopathic covert agents turn on each other with vicious glee when their underground facility is threatened with flaming death. The fun of Operation: Endgame lies in the cast: this is a pretty unlikely collection of assassins, played by the likes of Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), and Emilie de Ravin (Lost), alongside more traditional Hollywood superspy types such as Maggie Q (Live Free or Die Hard), Ving Rhames (Dawn of the Dead), and Ellen Barkin (The Big Easy). Operation: Endgame also has fun with spook lingo (the agents are all named after tarot cards, ranging from the Devil to Temperance to the High Priestess) and extremely graphic violence (truly, at least half of the movie is watching the agents kill each other with improvised weapons, like paper shredders and golf putters). Corddry has the most fun with his part, giving the movie a jolt of energy whenever he appears, but the whole cast has their moment (though Rhames is wasted on a one-joke character). All in all, a bit flimsy, but Operation: Endgame knows that it's trash and revels in it. A candidate for cult film status. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

A battle ensues among groups of government spy teams in an underground facility after their boss is assassinated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and bloody. May 6, 2012
Format:DVD
The movie was pretty good. It was a movie made to just have people kill each other and crack jokes. It had good fights and killing scenes and it was pretty funny. The story line isn't explained great in the beginning and is put together worse at the end. If you are looking for a movie with a good played story this isn't it. But, if you are just looking for a reason to laugh and see some rated material then I Recommend this movie because it's fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for SOME of the family.. December 30, 2010
Format:DVD
OK, first it's not 'terms of endearment'. Next off, it's an ation movie, with some black comedic elements. It's a wise ass, kill everyone, pseudo-psycholigcal actionfest.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars So Much Potential Wasted on Weak Script and Direction December 7, 2012
Format:DVD
"Operation: Endgame" (also known as "Rogues Gallery") starts out promisingly, with a newly recruited agent codenamed "Fool" (Joe Anderson, "Across the Universe") ready for his first assignment. He is sent to the government's underground facilities, where he is introduced to members of two groups Omega and Alpha. Both teams are composed of eccentric agents all named after tarot cards, including "Chariot" (Rob Corddry), "Empress" (Ellen Barkin), "Hierophant" (Emilie de Ravin) and "High Priestess" (Maggie Q) and "Judgment" (Ving Rhames).

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I found it funny. September 1, 2012
By andres
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I found it funny in a somewhat dark sense of humor. Assassins locked up and hating each other in an underground bunker? Why not. It's not like an AMAZING movie ever made but it made me laugh. Rent if first, watch it, and if your like me (I buy movies IIIII like) then purchase it. :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Mikati's first giant step April 18, 2011
Format:DVD
Seventy-nine minutes of mindless froth that, on second viewing, was slightly more entertaining than the first. I believe this is director Fouad Mikati's first film (and hopefully last?) and he goes at it with gusto as do the cast who seem to be enjoying themselves doing nothing in particular and they get paid for it, too.

Rob Corddry hams it up best of all and Ellen Barkin, Odette Annable plus Emilie de Ravin provide the eye candy. Zach Galifianakis seemed rather out of place as if he strolled onto the set from some other production nearby. Ving Rhames and Jeffrey Tambor have so little time on screen that their talents are wasted.

The two teams of assassins slug it out in an underground bunker and that really is all there is to it except that the death of each seems to provide vicarious thrills to each killer. The storyline is so paper-thin that I can't see how the production could be anything other than fun froth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome fast paced action flick!! January 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
[...]

Operation Endgame

Directed by: Fouad Mikati
Written by: Sam Levinson & Bran Watanabe
Run Time: 87 minutes
Release Date: July 16, 2010
MPAA: R

Originally titled Rogues Gallery, Operation Endgame is an action comedy staring Joe Anderson (The Crazies & Across the Universe) as Fool a thief hired by a secret government agency known as The Factory. Located deep underground The Factory is divided into two teams Alpha & Omega that counter act each other in a system of checks and balances.
Also in the facility is Hermit a simple minded if not ruthless assassin that has been relegated to desk duty due to diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome. Hermit is not a member of either team and spends most of his time hidden within the confines of the facility.
Shortly after Fool arrives at The Factory it is discovered that The Devil (Jeffrey Tambor) has been assassinated and has started Project Endgame, which traps both teams underground and triggered a bomb that threatens to destroy The Factory, everyone, and everything inside.
Members of Alpha & Omega begin battling each other while attempting to uncover who murdered The Devil and trying to find a means of escape.

The flick has an awesome cast that you may not know by name but when you see them you will recognize them. Well written, with Rob Corddry delivering some of his patented off the wall lines through out. The are no weapons allowed in The Factory so the fights scene are made all the more interesting with the various "weapons" used to dispose of each other. I watched this streaming from Netflix and it flew by. If you like fast paced action movies you'll like this flick!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BLURAY RENDITION.
Bluray is definitely up to par concerning picture clarity and sound. Dark Action Comedy well executed and entertains, definitely not for the faint of heart.
