Arnie! He may be his own cliché but he certainly does it well.
Combining some high-tech spy stuff with some shoot 'em up bad guy stuff and a bit of Christian mythologising, End of days is a great excuse for some violence, special effects and lots of running around. There's also a great big basketful of fun for the paranoiacs and conspiracy theorists out there. You know who you are (and so do they).
End of days is a big guy movie that requires more brains to find the remote than to follow the plot but what did you expect? Buy it and have fun.
