You’ve been looking forward to seeing <insert movie title>­­ since the first trailer was released, and now the time has come. You are at the movie theatre enjoying a great show, when all of a sudden, the ending blows you away … and not in a good way! Why do such excellent movies have such infuriating endings? In case you need a few examples of this, here is a few that left fans feeling betrayed when the credits began to role.

Man of Steel

Superman is the only superhero that is actually a superhero; or so we thought. As a hero that was good to the core, no one expected to see a dark side of the Man of Steel in this new 2013 adaption. The graphics were excellent and the backstory of Zod compelling. However, jaws dropped when Superman actually killed someone. The bottom line – Superman DOES NOT KILL! And the pic below is what most fans looked like when he did!



I Am Legend

Now this was a fantastic movie. People love vampires and people love zombies. Mixing them together was a no brainer! However, no matter how great the story was, with that ending, it ruined the entire thing. The fact is that there was so much time spent developing the plot that it was a massive letdown to allow the doctors character to simply give up and allow himself to be killed. Fortunately, there was an alternate ending that was much more satisfying.

The Purge: Anarchy

Rich white folks killing off poor people to lower the population. There are good guys, bad guys and those in between. What’s not to like about this movie? The ending, that’s what. You know those movies that leave you wanting to know more at the end? Well this is one of them. The build up to the end was so grand that it was a major letdown to see NOTHING at the end. Did the survivors come together as a family? And what of the man who helped our hero even though he tried to kill him? Enough said…



The Titanic

Who doesn’t love the Titanic (even if they won’t admit it)? Of course no one expected the historical ending to be any different. After all, the ship had to go down or it wouldn’t be the Titanic. However, the buildup of Jack and Roses love was so deeply touching that it was a major letdown when Jack did indeed, let go. The fact that he died wasn’t really the source of the movie goer’s anger. What did infuriate people was that it was perfectly clear that the board Jack put Rose on so obviously had enough room for them both.

Can you think of any other movie endings that angered you? I’m sure if you try you will be able to come up with more than a few. It’s time to send in our complaints to Hollywood!
