End of Days Reviews

February 5, 2018
Arnie's not taking any chances this time, and the result is the most questionably repulsive big-budget film in recent memory.
March 31, 2008
Peter Hyams's lurid, FX-happy thriller slams pieces of a dozen other movies into a noxious new compound. It has to be seen to be believed, but who'd want to?
March 19, 2002
Displaying precisely the imagination that gave the world such epic achievements as The Star Chamber and The Relic, Hyams dusts off America's designated import and goes with Arnie Schwarzenegger his own self.

The movie is frequently silly.

January 1, 2000
End of Days is an overblown, overspectacular, oversold movie without an original idea in its head.
January 1, 2000
End of Days involves a head-on collision between the ludicrous and the absurd.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
Reasonably entertaining.
January 1, 2000
Full of sound and fury, signifying absolutely nothing, End of Days is the loudest and least of the year's end-of-the-world movies.
January 1, 2000
As incoherent about its mysticism as it is about anything else.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
January 1, 2000
85 percent explosions and editing idiocy (a window can't break without director Peter Hyams cutting between five different angles) and 15 percent Arnold trying to grow a third dimension.
January 1, 2000
Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest vehicle, End of Days, is such a witless, bombastic, by-the-numbers hunk of millennial hooey it made me nostalgic for Commando.
January 1, 2000
A depressingly shabby excuse for a movie.

End of Days keeps asking whether faith or force will save the human race, before hedging its bets and insisting on both. Neither will be enough to save relics like Hyams and Schwarzenegger from their long, affluent drift into irrelevance.
January 1, 2000
Think of End of Days as Hollywood's own Y2K bug.
January 1, 2000
You'll walk out of End of Days wanting to pick a fight with Arnold Schwarzenegger. That's how bad this flick is.
January 1, 2000
It's too lurid, exploitative and, on some level, just plain silly.
January 1, 2000
This is of interest only to the hard core of Schwarzenegger's army.
January 1, 2000
Days is a movie full of punches but no spark.
January 1, 2000
There are moments in End of Days when Schwarzenegger seems to be gunning for an Oscar. Those moments play like comic relief.

January 1, 2000
In a performance that is among his worst, [Arnold] seems to have trouble with his lines and doesn't get to make his trademark wisecracks.

The movie is as bloodless as a cyborg, and it feels as if it has been assembled according to diagrams supplied by someone who studied every successful sci-fi action thriller and then multiplied the findings by 10.

Schwarzenegger fans will probably be pleased, action lovers won't be bored, and the Catholic League will be angry. Everyone else will see End of Days for what it is: a deliciously bad motion picture.

January 1, 2000
Hyams seems able to establish a rhythm and keep the sequence clear. It's when people talk that he tends to get into trouble.
January 1, 2000
The acting is hammy, all the 666 Book of Revelations stuff has been worn out since The Omen, and the film never quite focuses on anything long enough to build up any pseudo-religious creeps.
January 1, 2000
Many sins have been committed in the name of religion; End of Days ranks as the latest.
January 1, 2000
Drab and depressing.
