The End Of Days Movie Starring Arnold Schwarzenenegger

The End of Days film is a movie that adds to a long list of movies with the end of the world theme. The end of the world obsession has led to movies such as I am Legend starring Will Smith, Deep Impact, Armageddon and many many more. All of these movies try and predict how the human world as we know as Earth will end. Will it be by nuclear war, aliens, a comet, a sever weather predicament, famine, or in the case of End of Days; religion.

The End Of Days movie begins with a Catholic spiritual council that is debating whether or not to kill a child and mother who is about to give birth to Satan's child as prophesied in scripture. The movie fast forwards 20 years soon after, with the child foreseen in prophecy born and the spirit of Satan entering into a man at a restaurant. The man whom Satan entered is a prominent wall st. banker.

When an old man tries to assassinate the banker who has Satan inside of him, things really begin to get intense. The cops played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kevin Pollack respectively, are on the scene while the assassination attempt is taken place and eventually track the old man down. Arnold shoots the old man in the legs after a brief conversation and come to find out the man has no tongue. How did the man speak temporarily without a tongue?

The old man is taken into custody and they proceed to investigate his apartment where they find out he was a priest up until 6 months ago. The old man is soon murdered by Satan himself and has some writings carved out on his body that leads them to the woman prophesied in scripture.

Christine is the name of the prophesied girl who was born 20 years ago. She is continually having issues with dreams that are believed to be real. Christine is wanted by Satan to put his child in her to end the world once and for all. She is also being tracked down by Catholic clergymen who want to kill her before this happens. The combination of both of these entities make for thrilling adventures as she tries to escape them with the aid of Arnold and his partner.

Movie Analysis

I thought the movie End Of Days had an outstanding story-line but the acting and direction was not that great. The writing was excellent and the end of days movie showcased an excellent script. I thought it was predictable and not very suspenseful, although it tries to be. The End Of Days is typical monster, good guy bad guy type movie that did not wow me at all.

This was not one of Arnold's better performances and he could have did a better job. I thought Kindergarten Cop was better acting than this. I thought the Satan character played by Gabriel Byrne was the best acting role out of the bunch. He really played his part well and really carried the movie I thought. Gabrielle Byrne made it entertaining and thrilling to watch with his performance.

This is the first time in Arnold's career that he plays someone who is down and out, suicidal, and down on his luck. The big muscular man actually cries in this feature film that competed with the James Bond flick "The World is Not Enough". It has more than doubled it's initial investment of 100 million including over 20 million in it's first weekend at the box office.

Overall a C-.
