Product Description

Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire, Pearl Harbor) leads an all-star cast which includes Burt Reynolds (The Longest Yard, The Dukes of Hazzard), James Woods (Any Given Sunday, John Q), Anne Archer (Clear and Present Danger) and Angie Harmon (TV's "Law and Order") in this political action/thriller opening with a presidential assassination and following a perilous path of intrigue. The Secret Service agent (Gooding, Jr.) in charge of the president's protection detail blames himself for his team's failure and quits his post only to become obsessed with solving the crime. A tenacious reporter (Harmon) aids him in his quest. Together they unravel a web of lies as they try to divine the truth behind the conspiracy among shadowy assassins and ex-special ops.

Amazon.com

An assassination whodunit, End Game stars Cuba Gooding Jr. as Alex Thomas, a Secret Service agent assigned to protect the president of the United States. When the president is killed during his watch, Alex is wracked with guilt. Plucky investigative reporter Kate Crawford (Angie Harmon from Law & Order) convinces him that the gunman didn't act alone and that a conspiracy theory in this case is valid. Gooding plays his role with quiet reserve, a 180-degree departure from his over-the-top Oscar-winning performance in Jerry Maguire. Harmon displays charm as the award-winning and highly unrealistic journalist. And Burt Reynolds shows up for a few minutes here and there to chew up the scenery as a general who may or may not be a rogue agent. Directed and co-written by Andy Cheng, the film has some thrilling action sequences. But its plot is transparent and when the mastermind behind the assassination is revealed, no one will be surprised. --Jae-Ha Kim

Bad script. You cannot expect Cuba Gooding, a fine actor, to do something with nothing. General Burt Reynolds in full dress uniform smoking a pipe? The always dynamic James Woods is even restrained from his usual machine gun mouth didactic style. Now Angie Harmon does get a chance to act, but with who?

Secret Service Agent Cuba deflects a bullet with his hand which inadvertantly kills the President. It was a magic bullet because, miracle of miracles, no damage was done to his hand. In an overwhelming display of guilt he tries to drink himself to death only to be awakened by reporter Angie to whom he promptly farts in the face. That's just the first 15 minutes folks.

We then get treated to the conspiracy and a whole lotta killing going on. Extreme closeups, handheld cameras, and of course the filtered color to heighten suspense.

The ending is the final lowpoint of the film. How did the killer procure and finance all this? And after all they've been through Agent Cuba punks out and refuses to tell reporter Angie.

Anne Archer, one of my alltime favorites, has a supporting role as The First Lady, who is also a painter. She is lovely and so are the paintings.

It's a shame but it could have a contender thriller.

This thriller had exceptional actors, lots of excitement, but really failed to deliver plot, had a totally dissatisfying ending, and in the end really felt like a complete waste of time. In addition, the camera work was erratic and weird (probably some attempt at artistic effect) and jumpy. My husband and I watched it and were so disappointed; we'd wondered why we'd never heard of it, when it starred such great actors. The reason is, it's an empty and incomplete movie.

I rated it three stars instead of one because the actors are great performers and fun to watch, plus the excitement level of the movie is high, even though it pans out to nothing in the end.

I like this movie a lot. Great acting by James Wood and Cuba Gooding Jr. which makes this an above average action film "whodonit." Well done action sequences and suspense throughout the film which keeps you engaged and guessing. I like everything about the film, which provides a great build up, but a very disappointing ending which leads you hanging. Yes, they hint at who was behind the President's assassination, but I would have liked to see the director add a scene or summary of film clips that lays out who exactly was involved and their motivations. For instance, a bonus scenes section outlining this would have been nice. The movie concluded abruptly, leaving me with a feeling of "Is this it??" This cost it a star in my book; otherwise it would have been 5 stars. Still, a great flick.

This movie had some good moments, but overall, there were lots of visual shots that just didn't make much sense, for instance, all the shots of cell phones. The end left much unexplained, so that was a bit frustrating. Plus, it didn't seem realistic that the Secret Service would let a reporter play such a critical role in an investigation, even to the point of dragging her along on interviews. There didn't appear to be any chemistry between Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Angie Harmon, nothing at all. And Burt Reynolds seemed to be wasted; his character didn't add much. But at least James Woods added some spice. I won't watch this movie again, but it wasn't an unpleasant experience.

If you are looking for a movie that Cuba Gooding, Jr., James Woods, Burt Reynolds, or Angie Harmon are at their all time best.....well this ain't it. I can't believe that any of them took the roles. Must not have read the horrible script. If they were in it just for the money I might understand, but the budget for this trash must have been all of $10. Some of the recent reviewers gave the movie 4 or 5 stars. Please tell me where you get your eyes checked and hearing aid fixed. I'm sure to stay away from them since you definitely are blind and deaf.

This movie was about the assassination of the President of the United States and subsequent hunting down of the assassins to determine the motive. The big problem with the movie for me was the lack of realism (or tension for that matter). The culprits seemed like the Keystone Cops of assassins - they were constantly out in the open killing people who might link them to the assassination making them very transparent, easy to track and not very bright. The movie was obviously focused on action vice covertness.

The lead actors, Cuba Gooding Jr. (Presidents bodyguard) and Angie Harmon (Reporter) were easy to watch although they were bumbling around a bit which took tension out of the movie. The Angie Harmon character was slightly comedic. James Woods, Burt Reynolds and Anne Archer had supporting roles that were not very interesting.

*Spoiler* I did not understand the ending which could have been interpreted in a variety of ways. All of the possible interpretations seemed uninteresting to me.

Viewers seem to be pretty much against this action flick, seeming to put it down because if IS an action flick, a fact that for this viewer prevents looking for the good parts of a movie that succeeds in making us think. Director Andy Cheng (also a co-writer for the script) has a background as a movie stunt coordinator and that talent serves him well in this fast paced, explosive, interesting film.

Alex Thomas (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) is a secret agent assigned to the President when an assassination occurs: Thomas takes a bullet for his beloved President (Jack Scalia) and comforts the First Lady (Anne Archer) when the President is pronounced dead. Thomas works for Head Agent Vaughn Stevens (James Woods) who comforts the grieving Thomas and sends him off duty to recover: Thomas goes off on a drinking binge and is discovered by an aggressive Pulitzer Prize news reporter Kate Crawford (Angie Harmon) and between the two of them they uncover a conspiracy that involves top ranking people. The perpetrator of the assassination is one Jack Baldwin (Peter Greene) who guides the events from is hidden space. Every lead Crawford uncovers is promptly destroyed by explosions or fires until the final confrontation of Baldwin with Thomas and Crawford. And just when the viewer thinks every step is utterly predictable, the ending leaves the truth about the assassination to the viewer...!

Cuba Gooding, Jr. is a fine talent in search of a great role: in this film he does well underplaying his character with some of the subtleties that demonstrate more of his talent. Angie Harmon delivers a fine performance: she deserves more roles.
