Critics reviews

My favourable memory of Burt Reynolds’ The End (1978) led me to take another look at it on the Olive Films Blu-ray, and was happy to learn that it holds up, at least for me. The only times it reverts to squishy sentiments involve the hero’s young daughter (Kristy McNichol), and these are mercifully brief; the remainder is sustained by an interesting oddball cast and Reynolds’ brave willingness to make himself look as unheroic and ridiculous as possible.
