REVIEW: This Is The End
Summary: For comedy fans, This is the End is worth the watch in the theater. Looks like A Horror...In Fact is not.
I was lucky enough to attend a screening of “This is the End” last night and the best way i can describe it is – Jay and Silent Bob meets Bill and Teds Excellent Advernture! Deadly.
While attending a party at James Franco’s house, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride try to survive the end of the world, The Apocalypse. The movie is based off the publicly unreleased short, Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse which is below
It’s really tough to describe/review this movie. This is the End feels like the movie a group of friends would really make… The type of movie many groups of friends have likely sat around and said to each other, “That was some funny shit. We should make a movie.” Well, when your group of friends are wealthy Hollywood A-listers, you can!
If you’re afraid of dirty comedy, stay away… If not, enjoy! At many times, it felt as if This is the End was unscripted, with the actors legitimately making fun of their friends and all their faults. It was fun. Trapped in boredom, the group decides to make a sequel to Pineapple Express
For me, the “characters” of Michael Cera and Danny McBride were by far the most hilarious. Cera goes the complete opposite direction as you would imagine from the roles he plays, while McBride is… Well, exactly what you would image Danny McBride to be like. A hilarious dick!
Billed as a horror comedy, This is the End is not scary, with most of the demons and demonic possessions being funny, rather than scary.
The Movie hits Irish Screens 28th June 2013.
