DVD REVIEW: Operation Endgame - Zach Galifianakis, Joe Anderson, Fouad Mikati

Release Date: 21/02/11


Somewhere beneath Washington, D.C., an intense rivalry is heating up between two opposing teams of government assassins. The hired killers in the organisations take their names from Tarot cards. The Fool (Joe Anderson) is the latest recruit. Reporting for his first day on the job, The Fool is shocked to find that his boss is dead, and the office is on lockdown. To make matters worse, the building has been rigged with explosives, and it's going to blow soon. Now, in order to get out alive, The Fool will have to root out the killer in his midst, and make a quick escape before his co-workers catch him in their crosshairs.


There are times when you want to watch a film that doesn’t rely on intricate plot twists, where the budget isn’t huge and it entertains without any real brain power required.

That’s exactly what you get with this title and whilst the DVD cover is misleading the title does pretty much what the viewer wants: Trained Assassin’s murdering each other with everyday office items.

It did what I wanted, it kept me amused and whilst the characters were acceptable (although to be honest I wanted more Ving Rhames) for the budget it wasn’t that bad especially when it chose to rely on traditional Effects over the all too common computer generated ones. Whilst it won’t set the world alight it will keep a certain percentage of the audience happy. If you want a thriller with more twists which keeps you going longer, then you might want to try Salt.
