On December 28th, 1999, the citizens of New York City are getting ready for the turn of the millennium. However, the Devil decides to crash the party by coming to the city, inhabiting a man's body, and searching for his chosen bride, a 20-year-old woman named Christine York. If he bears her child between 11:00 PM and midnight on New Year's Eve, the world will end, and the only hope lies within an atheist ex-cop named Jericho Cane, who no longer believes in God because of the murder of his wife and daughter.

Goofs

When Bobby surprisingly returns after having been burned to death earlier in the explosion/fire of his vehicle, no singe or scorch marks are seen on his clothing, despite having been surrounded by intense flame. Although he did make a deal with the Devil, it was Bobby with whom the Devil made the deal, not his clothes, which should have been burned off in the fire or show some evidence of the extreme fire and heat they'd been subjected to.

Quotes

The Man: [to cardinal] For a thousand years you've waited for my return. Behold, you have failed. And with your dying breath, you will bear witness to the End of Days.

Alternate Versions

Allegedly, test screening versions of the film had the following alternate scenes:
  • on the train sequence, before Satan leaps across the carriages, he points and says "Jericho, I will cast you down like my Father did to me at the beginning of time". This was in the test screening, but cut in the final version;
  • Jericho impales himself on the statue of the angel, and is believed to be dead, but then opens his eyes and pushes himself off of the sword. His wound is miraculously healed, and then he and Christine walk out of the church.

Sympathy for the Devil
16 July 2014 | by bowmanblueSee all my reviews

You've got to feel sorry for poor old Lucifer. I mean, what are the chances? The Prophecy says that he can rule the world IF he can find a woman in a three hours window on New Year's Eve 1999. Then, when the moment finally arrives, Arnold Schwarzenegger shows up and kills the mood for his supernatural love-fest.

Basically, it's Arnie vs the Devil. Let's face it, deep down, we all know who's going to come out on top in that one, but, hey, let's go along for the ride anyway.

Arnie plays an alcoholic cop who... oh, forget it. Arnie plays Arnie. He beats up bad guys and he's damn good at it. You must know what to expect from him by now? As I've said, in this case he's got his sights set on the high prince of darkness. Along the way he uses big guns, many stunts, lots of grunting and more explosions than Wile E Coyote has seen in his life.

If you like the sound of that, you'll probably enjoy End of Days. If you don't, don't rent this - you'll only complain about the CGI and pick plot holes.

Two bonus points: Gabriel Byrne is cool as the Devil and, if you ever saw Blackadder II, you may remember 'Lady Whiteadder.' Well, imagine her kicking the hell out of Schwarzenegger. Seriously, she does. If that doesn't make it worth the watch then I don't know what does.
