This Is the End is the second Seth Rogen film (the first being The Interview (2014) which also starred James Franco and Seth Rogen) I have enjoyed. I didn’t get to see it when it came out in 2013 because I’m not much of a Seth Rogen fan, but the movie wasn’t bad at all. The comedy were well paced and I didn’t find myself being dragged on for too long, before another laugh comes crawling up my belly.
The whole idea of the main cast being an exaggerated version of themselves, is one you will enjoy. My favorite was the exaggerated version of James Franco, with him being addressed as a nerd because that dude is a total nerd, check out his bio on Wikipedia to see how many degrees he has.

The movie mixes and matches, using many cameos to play exaggerated versions of themselves, using Biblical themes of the end of the world and trying to pass a message that regardless of how life presents itself we should think about others (although this message may not have been in the mind of the makers) all this was done in a perverted way, which I didn’t initially appreciate, but soon saw the fun in it.

The movie plot is about two actor friends Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel who decide to go for a party at James Franco’s house. Seth wanting his new friends James Franco, Jonah Hill and Craig Robinson to be friends with his old mate Jay, wasn’t coming out well. Both Seth and Jay went on a stroll while the party was still going on and witnessed what seemed like an earthquake to Seth and the Biblical end of the world to Jay.

They both get back to the party and the world started to burn before their eyes, with people dying and some being sucked up by a blue light. Now trapped together (James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson), they have to find a way to survive what is hapening.

I can’t jump out and say the acting was great, or the script was wonderful, what I can say is that the movie is fun to watch and James Franco was the bomb in the movie.

The movie had a grand ending, I enjoyed seeing the Back Street Boys partying in heaven and then the graphics of the movie is wonderful. Towards the end of the movie, some intense CGI were used to depict monsters and demons and it was so good.

This is the end is a movie you should watch, sorry it ain’t a family film, but it is a funny film.
