This Is the End (2013)
So bad it hurts
The movie starts from an interesting premise and attracts you with a promising trailer and a long list of good actors you might have seen in top rated movies. It has the right ingredients and you go see it full of hope that it could be the comedy of the year.
Unfortunately, from the very first minutes you are stuck with the shocking realization that this is a really, really terrible production. Setting aside the fact that it's full of meta-references that you will understand only if you have seen the previous movies in which the stars have played and maybe know something about their personal lives, the whole movie seems like a huge improvisation.
First of all, the script is awful. The plot is poorly thought out, the lines look like improv and the jokes are crude. There is too little humor and too much gratuitous gore. The acting is also at rehearsal level. Maybe they want to reach a new level of authenticity, but it seems they are not even trying. The CGI is a mess, but that's the last problem of this movie.
In conclusion, This is the end is a movie that wants to be a different type of comedy, but ends being not funny at all and a huge disappointment.
