Operation: Endgame is a new action comedy which has gone straight to DVD. It stars Zach Galifianakis, Ron Corddry, Ving Rhames, and a host of other big names.
The title refers to the final mission for two teams of assassins, who are charged with having to kill each other, thus wiping out the agency they all belong to.
Think Mr. and Mrs. Smith without the romance, and without the sublime acting skills of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Operation: Endgame could be worth watching, but I’m not sure I’d pay full price for it as the reviews have been very mixed.
The problem is the attempt to walk the fine line between funny and gruesome. So we get to see a host of dastardly killing scenes while also being told to laugh at the humorous script.
