This is the End review

It may not have the respect of critics or even the Academy Awards, film enthusiasts/comedy fans will treat it as gold. Definitely underrated and pure entertainment. This picture is the complete package: a horror, documentary, fantasy, dark comedy with a touch of musical at the end. Everything in this film was just funny, engaging and provocative at the same time. Screenplay, soundtrack, special effects and artists were just brilliant. So many truckloads of quotable smart quotes: "We can get thru this…we can do this together." "There is still hope." "His reckless behavior is bringing us down." "You should not be dishonest with your friends." "F^c&king civilizations’ broken down…you guys so high and mighty you never made a mistake before” "There's a reason we're all here." "It means we can still be saved..That means there is still hope. We can still be redeemed." It was pleasant to see one of this reviewers’ hated actor parodied (hint: turned into a pet). Danny McBride played his role well as a villainous prick, Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen were believable and the rest were wonderful supports including the cameos. Overall, this is total entertainment with a twist and insightful learning’s. This is the End is a party turned bonding moments, scare tactics and a huge message on friendship and that we should act good, and not just say it.
