All-star disaster
23 December 2019 | by gridoon2021See all my reviews

"Il Giudizio Universale" is like one of those Hollywood or international co-productions (say, "Casino Royale 1967") which gather a lot of big names in the cast and think that's enough for the viewers - they don't need to give them anything to do. A promising premise (loud God-like voice from the sky announces that the Final Judgment will start....tonight at 18:00) is first botched, then abandoned altogether (to give you an idea, the funniest gag is when the voice adresses - in Italian - a man in Blackpool, he says "Excuse me, do you speak English?", and the voice responds "No"). Disjointed, pointless, plotless, and unfunny. * out of 4.
