Review: Endgame (2007)
Directed by Alex Jones

If you are reading this review, I'm going to assume that you're at least familiar with radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. A polarizing figure in the world of esoterica, his antics either motivate you or piss you right off. In either case, he's got a new documentary out for your admiration or skepticism.

In Endgame, writer/director/producer Alex Jones takes us beyond the globalistsí campaign of false-flag terror operations detailed in Terrorstorm and moves us forward to examine the ultimate goals of the NWO. If it's to be believed, Jones' vision of the future is a depressing one. In the opening minutes, in fact, it felt like I was watching the trailer for a new Tom Clancy thriller--complete with a twisting plot of global intrigue. Only this time Jack Ryan isn't going to save the day.

Bilderbergers, eugenics, and transhumanism...oh my.

The first thing I noticed about Endgame was the quality graphics and the moody theme song composed by Graham Reynolds (Terrorstorm, A Scanner Darkly) in the introduction sequence. Building on the level of production quality set in Terrorstorm, Jones has outdone himself with Endgame. In all regards, Endgame is the most professional sounding and looking documentary Jones has released.

Although Endgame ushers in a new level of technical achievement for Jones, content wise it still suffers from many of the same problems as Terrorstorm. One of the biggest complaints I have with Jones' work is that he has a way of utterly burying you in facts. As usual, while the information presented is worthwhile, the way he delivers it will leave many viewers overwhelmed.

Starting with the ancient roots of globalism, Endgame sets a basic groundwork for the rise of the powerful families that, as Jones attempts to show, continue to hijack human destiny to this day. This segment is interesting, but I couldn't help but feel that Jones was presenting an oversimplified view of world history. For example, his explanation as to the start of World War I was that the globalists wished it as such and that Gavrilo Princep was somehow "linked" to their intelligence networks. In this way, he ignores the complicated state of global politics at the turn of the century and glosses over it with a far too convenient 'man behind the curtain' explanation.

Endgame continues to get compelling when it moves into Hitler's rise to power and World War II. In my travels investigating conspiracy theories, I've always wondered how the conflict between socialism and communism related to the globalists' plans. Did they favor one movement over the other? Did they support both sides? Or did it mark a divide between the clandestine rulers of the world? So often the NWO is portrayed as a unified entity, but I've been fascinated with the idea of splinter factions or differing views amongst the globalists on how to best bring about a one world government. Although Jones never goes into this with a level of detail that I would have liked, the film does hint at a possible struggle between the fascists in Germany and the Fabian socialists of England.

Unfortunately, before Jones can get into Hitler's possible connections to or struggles against the NWO, Endgame moves on to the footage of Alex crashing the Bilderberg assembly in Ottawa, Canada. Covered already on venues such as his radio program and Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, it was nonetheless amusing to see the video footage before and after Jones was detained at a Canadian airport. Also, in a bit of comic relief, this segment also features Jones confronting the limos of leaving Bilderberg attendees and mocking them as they pass.

From here, Endgame goes on to cover two final topics.

The first, and I must say least engaging part of the movie for me, is the planned North American Union and the Trans-Texas Corridor. Basically, at this point in the movie, I was already starting to feel the exhaustion of information overload. This topic no less important to Jones' overall message than the rest of the film, but I don't know...I think you need to be a Texan to truly appreciate the gravity of the situation. Though a recorded interview with an adamant WWII vet telling us to "...stop this here!" was nothing short of moving.

The final segment of Endgame is where all of the serious future forecasting happens. Detailing the globalistsí love of eugenics and transhumanism, Jones gives us a glimpse at their goals of human depopulation via viral weapons and immortality via fusion with technology. It sounds very sci-fi, but his claims are indeed backed up by Jonesí usual assortment of mainstream news articles. Of note here, Jones' assertion that this big environmentalism movement of late is in fact an scheme by the NWO to promote de-population agendas as well as earn income via carbon taxes. If nothing else, itís a new spin on the SOS/Going Green crowd that I hadn't considered before.

If this review is starting to feel long winded, that's because I'm trying to do justice to all of the information jam-packed into Endgame. Make no mistake, this is a long movie. At a little over 2 hours, itís certainly not for those with short attention spans. In this regard, I feel that ultimately Endgame could have used a couple more passes through the editing process. At times, it felt like Jones was returning to topics already adequately covered or beating a particular horse well into a fine paste. Still, although not as user-friendly as Terrorstorm, Endgame is a nice change of pace from the usual 9/11 Truth Movement stuff put out by Alex Jones.
