A promotional making-of documentary for the film End of Days (1999). Interviews with the cast and a few crew members along with clips from the better parts of the film are present, but do not really contribute to the real "making" of the movie. Written by
The movie pretty much sucked but that's not to say this documentary is all that bad. Yeah, it's about as mediocre as the movie was -- but 1.8/10 stars?! C'mon! I admit that Peter Hyams is one of the worst directors of all time (he even messed up The Star Chamber) and this is merely a star-studded promotion for the film used as a tie-in but...isn't that the POINT?
Interviews with Ah-nuld are sort of insightful, and at least let us know what in heck he was thinking when he signed up for this. Screenwriter tells us that he approached Arnie with the concept in '96/'97 and wanted to add a new perspective.
Problem is, of course, Arnie can't really play "human" everyday characters because...well...everyday Joe Schmoes aren't Mr. Olympias -- it makes me wonder how often his character in "End of Days" supposedly works out at a gym...seeing how he drinks peer and pizza shakes and apparently sleeps all day...
Arnie the slob?!
