So you adjust the ingredients, maybe even add a few of your own thinking you are gonna make the recipe your own, and then you find out the dish turned out bland and could have done without your own twists.

This film advertises itself as a comedy, but all it succeeds in accomplishing is boring us with wannabe dark humor lines, and pathetic attempts for the audience to sympathize with the characters.

I just saw this - still am watching it - on a satellite channel and wondered what the rating was, as I thought that it was a total waste of broadcast time.

Overall it was a very enjoyable movie to watch.

 I was expecting a bloody action comedy with several really hot women and a couple of funny/interesting actors playing rival assassins who are out for blood, but instead I got a predictable, poorly scripted, ham-fisted critique on Bush-era intelligence operations.

The movie is a bit complicated and hard to follow, mostly the ending which leaves a lot of interpretation to the viewer, and it's also laced with political commentary.

There may be some film making talent involved with this picture, but they somehow manage to completely bore me, despite an attractive group of women, and funny and charismatic men.

Fails to be enjoyable .

Who is bad guys and who is good guys, is a question that's totally uninteresting and unimportant.

I found the movie entertaining almost throughout.

A waste of time .

Well worth the watch.

Not that funny and a bit amateurish but still, quite entertaining.

Action was ridiculously short in some instances, and ridiculously drawn out in others.

We're taken into an unexpected world, where American covert operatives are shown to be unglamorous, ultra-jaded, and a little crazy, like your average caricature of a stereotypical office environment, complete with cubicles, water coolers and fluorescent lights.

Contrived, Pretentious, and Rarely Amusing Nonsense .

The only character worth watching is The Chariot.

Comic book bloody violence and a few funny one liners are present but sadly there's little amusement or action in a poorly paced disjointed film.

Having said that, the film is damn entertaining.

Boring and quite stupid.

This film is far from perfect but its a light-hearted enjoyable film should raise a few laughs - as long as you 'get' the humour.

Don't waste your time over-analyzing the story line, just sit back and enjoy it.

It devolves from something truly clever into the same crap you've seen a thousand times before, just a bit more pretentious this time around.

, an intense rivalry is heating up between two opposing teams of government assassins.

But i guess the director decided that he needed to 'adjust the ingredients', maybe to make it his own style rather than a formulaic one.

The premise, that top espionage agents curse and yell at each other in the manner of 19-year-olds pregaming a house party, gets tired within the first 5 minutes, as soon as you realize that the writers really don't have any other comedic ideas to offer, and that the story and characters themselves are all mind-numbingly uninteresting.

Ellen Barkin gives the best performance to be fair, but then her put downs become yawn-some.

But what a waste of movie-watching time, unless you are deathly bored and need an emergency transfusion of gory mindlessness.

Other reviews say that this movie is not meant to be taken seriously, but with such talent in the movie, it should have at least try to be more funny or entertaining.

Exciting idea, Excruciating delivery .

Bland on all counts.

Nothing seemed to fit together, there was no real plot or storyline, and I was bored.

I really liked it and enjoyed it.

An unexpected treat that nails the hilarity and action sequences with surprising competence and style.

Freshman director Fouad Mikati's "Operation Endgame" is a contrived actioneer about two rival teams of top secret government assassins who try to wipe out each other with extreme prejudice.

So these guys went for the quick kill using anything they could find mostly common office supplies which made it very entertaining.

There are some reviews on this site that people say they do find this movie funny and they did enjoy watching it, but honestly it is an hour and half bore fest.

This leads to a dull sense of purpose for the movie and it's easy to forget that there is a plot and just take in the action sequences.

The guy from HTTM is as annoying as ever, Maggie Q looks as bored as hell, and Brandon T.

At most enjoyable as a late night cable flick.

This is a fast paced action movie with a tendency for brutality and gore.

A pathetic waste of time.

And yes, this IS a good movie to watch: it's entertaining, funny and it CAN happen, or has, if you think about it.

I will say that the storyline was entertaining, albeit a bit silly.
