How it Ends. (2018)
Ok, first of all let me tell you that this movie starts very well, and it goes down from there till it ends very poorly.
The premise is good: "A desperate father tries to return home to his pregnant wife after a mysterious apocalyptic event turns everything to chaos."
And that is exactly what you get. Forest Whitaker and Theo James go on a 2000mile road trip to get to their pregnant Daughter/Future Wife. Though, what you don´t get is everything else. You are driven ny the mystery for an entire movie where you find yourself wondering: What the hell happened? What is going on? Is it a natural disaster? Is it the start of a war? Is it an alien invasion?
And someone in IMDB did a good review of it, and I am going to use that so you can understand what it feels like after you watched it:
- "For a film named how it ends, it unfortunately is missing an ending"
Honestly, it is a good movie, but it is missing the final act.
Good: the acting. This movie lives on good acting.
Bad: The storytelling. The amounts of time I almost yelled at the screen saying: "really? you are going to do that? That is dumb!" was too big to let go. And it is missing an end...
