We have taken some photos of "Operation Endgame". They represent actual movie quality.
Every now and then there comes a movie that makes me want to write areview on; just to do the world a favor and help people save theirmoney and time.Do not bother with this one. It's got a good cast which tricked me intowatching it. But when you take a good cast and hand it over to adevelopmentally retarded director, you get a movie called 'Operationendgame' The director clearly didn't know what he wanted. It was awannabe comedy mixed with a wannabe action flick, that has no humor,little action and a wee bit of gore. It was a mess. It was so bad, thati don't even want to finish this review.so i'll make it very simple; acting - bad, character development -there WAS none! cohesiveness - wasn't there, action - OK i suppose,comedy - bad, script - bad, plot - wtf?! overall - 2/10; only becausei'm a nice guy:)
Officespace with violent eliminations. Operation Endgame sees the filmbegin with the menial chitter chatter and bickering you'd find in anoffice environment. It soon descends into violent chaos as theseassassins and spies have to off one another. The well placed humor soongives way to awesome fight scenes, enacted with blunt realism by it'smostly comedic cast. Barkin and Yustman are both incredibly sexy anddangerous, with Corddry cementing himself as an angry comic presenceafter both this and Hot Tub Time Machine. It is all brisk and quotable,and excels with some genuine surprises and the lack of guns asavailable weapons. The only downer is that the office relationshipssoon give way to the plot and action. An unexpected treat that nailsthe hilarity and action sequences with surprising competence and style.
Another reviewer put it right...it is an American movie for a Britishaudience. I would go as far as to say it is an American version of the"Shaun of the Dead" style of comedy.If you just sit and enjoy the movie you will see that is very funnywith a great set of one-liners that make you laugh out loud.Rob Corddry (of The Daily Show and Hot Tub Time Machine), JeffreyTambor (of Arrested Development), Zack Galifianakis (of The Hangover)as well as the "two observers" are the keys to making this movie workat the comedic level.There is quite a few "bloody" scenes but you hardly wince at all. Youhave to see it to believe it.Don't waste your time over-analyzing the story line, just sit back andenjoy it.
Why on earth was this movie made? The writing (Sam Levinson and BrianWatanabe) created a story out of a potpourri of potty mouth words andstrange instruments of mayhem (nearly everyone in the film getsslaughtered), and Director Fouad Mikati hired a group of actors toparticipate in this mess, and superimposed film clips of presidentsBush and Obama to make it seem pertinent. Sad. Apparently beneath the White House there is a group of crazies run bythe Devil (Jeffrey Tambor) and the Empress (Ellen Barkin) who controltwo groups - Alpha and Omega - to protect information about previousgovernmental faux pas. The members of these two groups are intent onkilling each other after using every form of foul language and behaviorknown. The Devil is murdered after he engages Operation Engame thatwill explode the underground facility and there is a rush to find a wayout before the cataclysm. The fighting groups are composed of actorssuch as Ellen Barkin, Rob Corddry (the only one in the cast that has aweak glimmer of interest), Zach Galifianakis as wee would expect in afilm this awful, Ving Rhames, Emilie de Ravin, Maggie Q, OdetteYustman, Brandon T. Jackson, Joe Anderson (who could be said to havethe lead role), and a troop of others who probably wouldn't mind iftheir names were not associated with this blood bath/toilet story.Perhaps some will find it a cult movie. For others, a few minutes isall it will take to realize you'll be wasting time finishing it. Grady Harp
Let's first be honest: This movie will not fit everyone. Which means,if you don't like cheesy, dry humor, are you offended by wild, absurdsexual references and rape threats, well, then you should just ignorethis one. For you others who DO find the above amusing - This is yourMecca.There's two things I don't like with this movie: One, Ving Rhames hastoo small a part in it. Two; that it's promoted as a hard boiled actionmovie to attract more butts to the cinema chairs. The promoters andtrailer makers should be fired, as they make people believe the movieto be something it's not. Now, back to the movie. To see a bunch of assassins who's completewackos, crack the craziest, dry humored golden nuggets of jokes whilewhacking the crap out of each other, is simply hilarious. This is wherethe movie hits bullseye. Who is bad guys and who is good guys, is aquestion that's totally uninteresting and unimportant. There was justone thought in my head as the movie ended: Sequel!
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.
This review is from: Operation: Endgame [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) Anything with Joe Anderson in it is worth the purchase in my book. What an excellent actor! Not bad to look at either!! This is just my own personal opinion though, you have yours.
Literally painful to watch from beginning to end, the film, depends onwhat side of the pond your on to the the title, comprises of a fewrecognisable actors who have been good in classic movies, trying tokill each other finding a mole.This should have been a blast, it could have been so funny, there issome talent here, who can deliver some cracking pieces of dialogue, butwhen the script and the story is as bad as this, it shows not even themost sarcastic, scathing comment can be given justice.If you fancy the film from the cover of the blu-ray, heed warning,Galifiniakis is in the film for about five minutes all in all, andsounds most of this time doing nothing. He's in it for no real reasonat all.Rhames is in it, but not for long, and whenever i saw him in this, ijust yearned for Marcellus, or even diamond dog.The rest of the cast are risible, to keep the steady awfulness of thefilm going. The guy from HTTM is as annoying as ever, Maggie Q looks asbored as hell, and Brandon T. Jackson, wears a false nose.Ellen Barkin gives the best performance to be fair, but then her putdowns become yawn-some.This is sloppy film making at it's worse.Avoid.
This review is from: Operation: Endgame [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) 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. :)
I like this movie throughout the whole time except where it got to theending, I like the action and all but when it comes to an ending it hasto summarize what it was all about. I'm dazed and confused what was allthis killing for, why did they do it, what was their motives, why didthey carry out orders to kill the other team members and what was theirobjective.I know it has to be self explanatory but come on it has to have aproper ending anything will do, he just walks off into a cab and that'sit? Even the Usual Suspects and Unbreakable it summarized everythingwhen the protagonist walks out.
First off, I picked this off the shelf at the video store primarilybecause it has Zach G featured dead center on the cover -- and giventop billing on the cover credits!!! (He's in the movie for about 2minutes.) On the back of the DVD were the words "Hilarious!!" Notknowing anything about it, I rented it because I think Zach G (can'tspell or even pronounce his last name) is pretty funny.If you think this movie is funny, you're a jackwagon. The movie isabout nothing but gore, blood and killing. Nothing funny at all.Except, maybe, the acting. The only thing worse than the script was theacting -- shame on the entire cast! I know most of them and know theycan do much better. (But, then again, maybe they knew the script washorrible, too.) What I think happened is that this movie came out andcrashed and burned (as it should have). But then a movie called TheHangover comes out, is an overwhelming HIT and Zach G is now asuperstar!! The crappy movie studio, goes, "HEY!! That Zach G guy wasin our movie, too! We own the rights!!! Let's reshoot the cover --feature Zach G in the center shot and give him top billing!! At leastwe'll sell more of these movies to idiots (like me) who will think thisis a comedy!! In fact, let's actually write 'Hilarious!!!' on the backcover!" For real, I believe that is exactly what happened. And that iswhy I feel RIPPED OFF!!!!
OPERATION: END GAME Â CATCH IT ( C+ ) It's merely around 80 minutes ofnon-stop brutal bloody Action. The movie doesn't have a plot whichAction movies don't have lately. Somehow director manage to book somefamiliar faces which aren't Big but still recognizable. Joe Anderson isa blue eyes Doll, Odette Yustman manages to show some really Hot ActionSkills, Emilie De'Ravin was very different from what we have seen herbefore. Maggie Q is the Queen of Action. Ellen Barkin and Rob Corddrymanage to make us Laugh with their cheap Nasty Jokes. ZackGalifianakis, Brandon T.Jackson and Adam Scott were O.k. Overall Icompletely Mediocre Action fun flick. Watch it for non-stop nonsenseTorturous Action.
This review is from: Operation: Endgame (DVD) I rented this movie, watched it for about 10 minutes, paused it, got on Amazon, bought it, and then went back to watching it.
The concept was good. But for a comedy, there wasn't nothing funny init. The fights were bad. Adult swim website had a game where you have 5minutes to kill yourself with office supplies. It's like a live actionversion of that game. The only character worth watching is The Chariot.There is no character development and there was no attempt to link anyof the characters to the cards that were their code names with perhapstwo exceptions. The Fool was appropriate and The Devil would haveworked for the 'leader' pulling their strings. The brief time he hasshows him as a complete joke. You get the feeling there are personalback stories for the characters that would make their animosities makemore sense. But we are never told what those are. It's like they took alonger script, pulled out a 20 minute portion of it, and decided tomake an 80 film out that one part. If you really want to watch thatmany cast members die, watch Hamlet.
What happened to the funny? This thing started out funny. Its premiseof CIA black ops as just another corporate work environment was funny.Rob Corddry was absolutely killing it with the funny. ThenÂ the funnywent away. I don't know where it went. I don't know why it went. All Iknow is this bait-and-switch replaced the funny with limp politicalcommentary and fight scenes that ranged from passable to "I've seenbetter hand-to-hand combat on Star Trek".I hesitate to describe this film's set up because you might be temptedto watch it no matter how much I tell you it ends up sucking. Well,here goesÂ On the day of Barack Obama's inauguration, a new agent (Joe Anderson)starts work at The Factory. That's the super-secret base of two teamsof competing spies/assassins, Alpha and Omega, who are basicallyresponsible for every bad thing that's every happened in the world. Theteams hate each other with a passion and are a combination of corporatestereotypes like the Aging Slut (Ellen Barkin), the Alcoholic Burnout(Rod Corddry) and the Office Weirdo (Brandon T. Jackson). Then the guyin charge of The Factory turns up dead, a self-destruct program istriggered and the two teams need to work together to escape, but theydecide killing each other is a better way to spend their time.Everything about the beginning of Operation: Endgame plays out like asatire of corporate culture. From the agents all working out of littlecubicles to those cubicles having name plates with the agents' codenames, there are so many little touches that are laugh out loud whenyou notice them. And by starting out with the over-the-top anger andbitterness of Corddry's character being paired off with the blank slateof Joe Anderson's new guy, everything seems primed for this to be adelightful black comedy. ThenÂ the funny goes away.Aside from a few scenes with Ellen Barkin, this movie abandons jokesand humorous transposition of corporate ethos into the world of JamesBond and Jason Borne. Instead, it turns into an action/espionage romp,with a cast that mostly doesn't know how to stage fight, that slobbersall over you with the Bush to Obama transfer as a metaphor. It devolvesfrom something truly clever into the same crap you've seen a thousandtimes before, just a bit more pretentious this time around.I'm usually not disappointed by bad movies because their badness ismade clear early on. With Operation: Endgame, however, it's like thefirst third of the script was written by a smart person trying to havesome fun and the rest was written by someone less smart who was justtrying to earn a paycheck. If you do watch this film, take my advice.When you notice you've gone 5 minutes without laughing at anything,turn it off because it's not going to get any better.
Great movie, great story, and a hilarious hit man flick. Don't believe the conservative criticism, they are just mad because the story is based off the Shadow government theory from the one and only Bushy Jr.!
"You think it's easy to look like a bearded tampon?"What a weird, odd, and ultimately underwhelming mixture Operation:Endgame ended up being.Â I was expecting a bloody action comedy with several really hot womenand a couple of funny/interesting actors playing rival assassins whoare out for blood, but instead I got a predictable, poorly scripted,ham-fisted critique on Bush-era intelligence operations. The great castwas really the only thing that made this movie somewhat worth my time.We've got Odette Yustman, Zach Galifiankis, Maggie Q, Rob Corddry, AdamScott, Brandon T. Jackson, Emilie de Ravin, Ving Rhames, JeffreyTambor...it's like someone asked me personally about all the actors I'dlike to see in a movie. Yet, they're utterly wasted on characters thatare terribly written. It shouldn't be possible to make a mediocre moviewith a cast this great, but whoever wrote the script certainly pulledit off.The majority of the jokes are unfunny (Corddry does get a few gems,though), the fight choreography is unimpressive, and the movie as awhole would have been better without the looping real-life footage ofPresident Obama's inauguration and the lame attempts to ground thestory in some kind of political statement. I'm all for messages inmovies, but Operation: Endgame goes about it without any subtlety orwit, and seemed a muddled mess as a result. Â I'm giving this a high score than it deserves because I got someenjoyment just from the opportunity to see a few of the actors I'mquite fond of (good Lord, Odette Yustman looks fantastic in a tanktop), but I feel pretty comfortable advising others to just skip it,entirely. It's a shame that a movie with such potential ended upstumbling in the execution.
It's rare that I watch a film and can't find something good about it. I mean there have been some truly horrendous films that have offered great cinematography, a good piece of acting, great direction or even a plot twist that made the movie worth watching for. But OPERATION ENDGAME felt like a total waste of time for me, even while I wanted to like it.The movie takes place in a hidden facility and involves a clandestine organization of spies/assassins who apparently control most of what goes on in the world. Established in the early sixties, this organization is composed of two teams. Team Alpha is a more active group that likes to spur things on and make things happen. Team Omega is their counter group, one that keeps things in check should Team Alpha overstep their bounds. This point/counter point organization has pretty much kept things on an even keel.Beginning his first day is the Fool (Joe Anderson), so named because each agent is named after a tarot card. He is brought into the Facility by long time agent Chariot (Rob Corddry) and agent High Priestess (Maggie Q). Down a deep elevator and into a waiting room where two agents watch their every move, they arrive and Chariot shows him around and introduces him.For team Alpha he meets Magician (Adam Scott), Heirophant (Emilie de Ravin), Tower (Brandon T. Jackson) and their leader Empress (Ellen Barkin). On the opposing Omega team, of which he has met the top two members, he meets Judgment (Ving Rhames) and eventually Emperor (Bob Odenkirk). Supervising both teams and running things in general is Devil (Jeffery Tambor). While in his office, Fool meets the last Alpha member Temperance (Odette Yustman), an ex-lover, which surprises both of them.Fool's first day turns rather exciting as the two teams wait for Devil to show for a meeting. When alarms sound they discover that someone has murdered Devil but before passing away he initiated Operation Endgame. This means that the entire system and building is on lockdown and within two hours the entire building and its contents, including agents, will be obliterated via napalm. This is all the time they have to find an escape hatch. They pair up, a member from each side, and begin their search.But that would be a simple film. Instead we discover that the Alpha team was the one behind the murder and are in the midst of taking out each of the Omega members while conducting their search. Just to make things interesting there is an independent member named Hermit (Zach Galifianakis), the best of them all, wandering the halls as a wild card.Now, all of this sounds like it would be an interesting movie. And in truth, perhaps there was a good movie at the base of it all. But rather than portray these character seriously we instead get a group that seems a bit unhinged for the most part and foul mouthed to the extreme. While not a prude I find it the sign of a weak writer who relies on every fourth word being an expletive, almost always beginning with F. As if we weren't smart enough to witness what was going on and decide how horrible it was, we get running commentary from the two watch dogs viewing the carnage on security monitors offering attempts at humorous comments throughout. They fail.The acting might be decent but the script is so bad that who can pay attention? No clues as to what is going on are presented until the third act but by then you've lost interest and have no connection to any of the characters. And comic actors who never get the chance to deliver comic lines are a waste.Viewers who rent this at the local video store will be wasting far more money than those who use a dollar Redbox. But even those who lose a dollar will realize that a drink at the local McD would have been money better well spent. This is one movie I doubt I will ever feel a desire to watch even a portion of. Don't waste your time or money.
This movie has a great storyline that meshes just how corrupt our system is in America. Do not believe the critics about the bad acting nor the storyline! This movie will tick off conservatives because it inadvertently displays the conspiracy of the majority of our elected leaders. I found it to be very entertaining, and all of the people that I have suggested it to, enjoyed the movie!
Those who are calling this movie a let-down are entitled to their opinions, but I viewed this film not knowing what I was watching until I was entranced in the intense footage of the action scenes, blood and all. After researching some, I realized what I was watching, and although I was still a bit confused, everything cleared up as the movie progressed. This movie shouldn't be taken as a serious storyline and plot, but rather one of excitement and a laid-back guy's night in flick while eating or doing whatever makes you have a great night. It is what it is, a dry-humor comedy with action and drama. Great film!
