I love the movie. It think it was great. I can't wait for it to come out DV or Bluray. I want to own on Bluray. I enjoyed the movie. It was a diaster movie about a man trying to find his wife and trying to save her. I enjoyed the movie. Thank You.
James always makes a more sturdy than inspiring leading man, but the Great and Oscar winning Whitaker usually has a little more to play than this. Only Dove, playing a mistrusting young woman escaping a limited life for a far riskier one, makes a lasting impression.
How It Ends had me thinking about endings in general. How it felt like the close of this film would never come. How we so commonly return in cinema, especially lately, to visions of the end of the world. How the actual ending of this film is an atrocious cheat. Trust me, you’re better off not even beginning.
The cast does a great job especially Forest Whitaker and the direction is surprisingly solid but its the stories lack of resolution and even depth drags down the movie. Nevertheless, if you're trying to kill time, it's not a bad watch but its just not anything to write home about.
How it Ends is best described as a disaster among disaster movies. In typical Netflix fashion this is another failed attempt at making a good Sci-Fi movie.
From the start interaction between characters feels very awkward. Though the two lead characters were written that way, it is still an overall problem between all the characters. Will, the bloke that took daddy's little girl, is a **** that looks stressed out all the time. Tom, the military daddy, is a very dominant direct guy that clearly is struggling with the fact that Will is such a big **** And that's their entire relationship in a nutshell.
When a videocall suddenly ends with the girlfriend not understanding a sound, all contact with the west coast is lost. For some reason GPS and phones don't work either, which implies that all the satellites around the Earth are no longer working... Which is practically impossible... But sure, let's believe that for a moment. Daddy and **** decide to go to Seattle to save the Girlfriend, and along the way they run into more problems than a turkey at a Thanksgiving dinner.
Then, half way through the movie the writing suddenly improves a lot. The main characters have a more real touching chemistry, and scenes get more interesting compared to before. This doesn't last long though. It lapses back into shallowness and stupidity straight after that.
Turns out that Girlfriend is still alive, and she's staying with a conspiracy theorist who for some reason gets **** boyfriend to act like a real ****. Suddenly it becomes important who believes what instead of the fact that people have died. It's ridiculous.
The movie ends with **** boyfriend killing the conspiracy theorist, and then driving away with girlfriend to outrun a volcanic eruption. And then it just ends... Wtf. No questions about what is going on are answered, and the end doesn't feel satisfying.
It's a mediocre movie with some enjoyment in the middle, but a lackluster start and finish. I give this movie a 5/10.
Thickening the ever growing Netflix catalog with more poor quality; How It Ends is a sci-fi thriller, confusing, convoluted and bad.
The argument is mediocre as well as the performances.
Too frustrating, not advisable.
