Has anyone seen this movie that has no ending whatsoever?..:confused:

I recently watched it, and while it definitely wasn't what i was hoping for, I didn't have to many problems with the ending (or lack there of).

I enjoyed it thoroughly, and it most definitely had an ending. A fairly good one, too.

I liked it too. I particularly liked how it used sf themes without explaining them. You just knew that the world must be like this because such and such theme/meme/threat came true.

I didn't mind the ending. Movies, gotta leave room for the sequel. :D

I thought the ending was exactly what the story called for, if unsatisfying for the watcher.

One of those annoying endings that couldn't be any different - just like the ending for The Departed - because it fulfils the main motif of the story. I watched those two movies close together, and said to my husband 'jeez, we need to find a film with a happy ending'.

I think, as viewers, we're accustomed to being spoon-fed the perfect wrapup, but some stories just aren't meant to be told that way.

Agreed. Agreed totally.

I saw it in the theatre and greatly enjoyed it. I was a little annoyed with the ending, as I am sure we all were a little. However, the more I thought on it, the more I came to realize that it fit with the overall tone of the movie.

I liked this movie. I thought it was intense, sad, hopeful and sometimes funny. I thought the ending fit with the tone of the movie. I would have liked to see what happened next. Maybe there will be a sequel.

I thought this movie was great. I'm also a big Clive Owen fan, but I thought it was really well done, especially because I went in thinking it would be terrible. Plus, Michael Caine was hilarious.
