The film was intended to be released in domestic theaters in 2005 by MGM, but was delayed due to the takeover of the company by Sony. The film was finally released direct-to-DVD in 2006 for the domestic market and within several international markets. See more »
When they are in the helicopter taking the president to the hospital, they say he has a "gunshot wound to the head", but in the shooting you can see clearly the gunshot was not in the head. See more »
So I'm looking to rent a DVD and I come across this movie called 'End Game'. It stars James Woods and Cuba Gooding JR and has the synopsis of a taught political thriller. Well worth a look then. Or so I thought.
Boy, was I wrong.
End Game has just about the most ridiculous plot I have ever had the displeasure of enduring. Now being something of a whodunnit, I can't really tear into it as I would like without 'ruining' it for those who have yet to experience this monstrosity. But questions such as 'Why has he/she/they done this?', and 'Where on earth did they get the resources to pull this off?' are all too abundant following the film's unintentionally hilarious conclusion.
As for the acting - you know those films where you can almost feel that an actor's realised that they've made a terrible mistake in signing on for a movie, and this then shows in their performance? This is one of those. Accompany this with a laughable script and seriously flawed, irritating direction and you have the recipe for cinematic poison.
Of course, this didn't make it to the cinema, and for the same reason you should not allow it into your living room; it is appalling.
