A review by Rick Norwood

This is the End This is the End is written and directed by actors and, in it, actors play themselves as survivors of the Biblical apocalypse. It made me laugh. It made me jump. It grossed me out. And parts of it, when the actors seem to be making up the script as they go along, bored me. But I give it this. It's not like anything I've ever seen before. The special effects are excellent.
