End of Days
release year:1999 genre:apocalyptic Y2K viewing setting:home VHS, 6/9/00 what I expected:wasn't sure - it had been a long time since I missed one of Arnold's movies in the theater what I got:nothing special
synopsis:The Devil takes human form and seeks the designated mate with which to copulate and bring forth hell on Earth just in time for the year 2000.
impressions:I really didn't care for it much. The only high points involved Gabriel Byrne as the Devil, because he always did cool stuff. There were a lot of explosions, gunfire, etc but all in all, this was one of those basic plotlines I detest: unstoppable power gets stopped by those much weaker than it. No thank you.
acting:Gabriel Byrne did a good job as THE bad guy.
final word:Worth seeing once, but if you're not an Arnold fan (or a Biblical Apocalypse fan) you may not like it.
