HELL ON EARTH — “Last night I stayed awake far too late watching one of the best bad movies I’ve seen in a long time; The End Of Days.
This is an Arnold Schwarzenegger driven vehicle with the likes of Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Pollak, and the super pretty Robin Tunney. If you’ve never seen it you can still already tell by the title it’s about Armageddon. In this power house of nonsense Arnold is some sort of gun for hire who gets a job to protect the devil (Byrne), yep, the devil. Some guy shoots at Lucifer and everything gets weird; Arnold and Pollak (who are partners) decide to figure out who the shooter is in a crazy, over priced helicopter battle. Then more nonsense happens and Robin Tunney is found out to be some sort of spawn of Satan who the devil needs to nail to end the world.
I’m not going to go more into this plot because you should watch it. I know I’m telling you it’s bad but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. In fact, one thing to entice you watch it is that they explain the sign of the beast is not 666. It’s a date for the end that is for some reason upside down, drop a 1 at the beginning and BAM, you have the end date. This movie is that silly.
So with that I will let you know I rate it a 6 out of 10 on the good bad movie scale and that it’s currently making its rounds on cable. Check it out on HBO Zone 2/18 at 3:15pm. It’s worth the time I promise.”
