Goofs

Lilith repeatedly demonstrates the ability to communicate telepathically with Ron Shannon. It's also repeatedly made clear that she and the other mutants are supposed to hide the fact that they are telepathic from the other members of Shannon's team. So why does she risk blowing her cover by leaping from the back of the van to warn Shannon of a trap? Shouldn't she be able to give him the warning telepathically? See more »

Quotes

Blue Mutant: Look at me while I rape you dammit!
Ron Shannon: [telepathically] I'm getting pink and blue flashes. Lilith, are you alright? Lilith, answer me.
Lilith: [telepathically] Yes, Shannon, I'm fine!
Blue Mutant: You really know how to turn a guy on!

parable of the leopards
10 July 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Joe D'Amato's "Endgame - Bronx lotta finale" (simply called "Endgame" in English) is an exercise in unabashed exploitation, and a fun one at that. Post-apocalyptic settings are a common theme in cinema, but this is one of those movies that looks really prescient in retrospect. Set in an irradiated New York in 2025, people are forced to fight to the death to entertain the elites (a bit like "The Hunger Games"). And this movie came out over a decade before there was reality TV! I view these sorts of movies as a latter-day manifestation of Franz Kafka's parable of the leopards: what used to be shocking becomes routine (whether the types of movies or what they portray happening in real life).

"Endgame" is a pretty slipshod movie, but it makes no pretense about what kind of a movie it is: a B movie and proud of it. And Laura Gemser sure is hot.
