The original script, "The Rogues' Gallery," was a 2004 Scriptapalooza finalist and tied for "Best Comedy" at the Screenwriting Expo 3 Screenwriting Contest. See more »

Goofs

When 'The Fool' Murders Hierophant in the bathroom, Temperance says "So, you gonna get out from under her?" Fool replies by telling Hierophant's corpse "Get off me, you bitch," and then proceeds to push her leg off him. His shove dislodges her red high-heel shoe, which is seen to be flung a few meters from her corpse. In the following segment, when Chariot emerges from a stall in the same bathroom, Hierophant's cadaver is wearing both shoes. See more »

Quotes

Chariot: Hey, you know what, you guys have been great, but I'm gonna go drink myself to death.
Empress: Shut the fuck up.
Chariot: Chug my cock.

Another example of a great idea resulting in a not so great movie.
25 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"You think it's easy to look like a bearded tampon?"

What a weird, odd, and ultimately underwhelming mixture Operation: Endgame ended up being. 

I was expecting a bloody action comedy with several really hot women and a couple of funny/interesting actors playing rival assassins who are out for blood, but instead I got a predictable, poorly scripted, ham-fisted critique on Bush-era intelligence operations. The great cast was really the only thing that made this movie somewhat worth my time. We've got Odette Yustman, Zach Galifiankis, Maggie Q, Rob Corddry, Adam Scott, Brandon T. Jackson, Emilie de Ravin, Ving Rhames, Jeffrey Tambor...it's like someone asked me personally about all the actors I'd like to see in a movie. Yet, they're utterly wasted on characters that are terribly written. It shouldn't be possible to make a mediocre movie with a cast this great, but whoever wrote the script certainly pulled it off.

The majority of the jokes are unfunny (Corddry does get a few gems, though), the fight choreography is unimpressive, and the movie as a whole would have been better without the looping real-life footage of President Obama's inauguration and the lame attempts to ground the story in some kind of political statement. I'm all for messages in movies, but Operation: Endgame goes about it without any subtlety or wit, and seemed a muddled mess as a result.  

I'm giving this a high score than it deserves because I got some enjoyment just from the opportunity to see a few of the actors I'm quite fond of (good Lord, Odette Yustman looks fantastic in a tank top), but I feel pretty comfortable advising others to just skip it, entirely. It's a shame that a movie with such potential ended up stumbling in the execution.
