Now, I am sure you are wondering why I am reviewing a movie like This Is the End, when this website is clearly for horror movies only. You’d be shocked to know that this film is actually a horror movie.
Based off a short film by Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel, This Is the End, starring Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, James Franco, Jay Baruchel, and Danny McBride plus many celebrity appearances, is a extremely hilarious, extremely bloody, really violent, and a very different (in a good way) film directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen himself. This is not like any other apocalyptic movie, this is definitely a classic. Although there are some very (very) inappropriate and gross scenes, This Is the End is sure to satisfy (everyone mature enough to handle it, that is).
This movie is basically a bunch of famous friends coming together and making a comedy movie with many great CGI effects, a ton of fake blood and guts, and lots of weed. But, that is not all what makes this movie so greatly made; there is the storyline. What they forget to mention in the trailers is that this movie is very biblical. Many appearances of demons and monsters… Even an exorcism now-and-then. Not the average demon, but one who has a little “rapey vibe” to it. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg did a brilliant job with this movie. This is a great example of what most of the movies these days lack… originality.
If you aren’t into very crude, sexual, messed up, immature, dark comedic gory movies filled with fire, demons, and complete terror… This isn’t for you.
