21 Good Movies With Surprisingly Terrible Endings
1. Saw V
The tag line for Saw V was: “You won’t believe how it ends”. We totally did. We did believe.
2. Matrix: Revolutions
Is he alive? Is he dead? WHO CARES?
3. A.I. Artificial Intelligence
It all goes to shit when David is sent millennia into the future.
So let's get this straight. Not only do the aliens attack Earth, a planet that’s 71% water (their only weakness), the Hess family just *happen* to have multiple drinks scattered around the house to defend themselves from the intruders. Had these been empty glasses, we’d believe it more. *Side eyes a pile of dirty dishes right by our bed.*
5. Planet of the Apes
We’re talking about the Tim Burton classic, of course. Why he changed the ending of the original movie so that Leo ends up in a parallel universe, we'll never understand. What we know, however, is that it was dumb AF.
6. I Am Legend
We get it, Will Smith. You blow things up. And?
7. 2001: A Space Odyssey
Ah, Kubrick. Here we go again. This movie is a masterpiece. But the vague ending means the true message of the story is lost on… Well, a lot of us.
8. The Devil Inside
See, our problem with this ending was… That there was no ending. “For more information about the ongoing investigation visit www.therossifiles.com” Seriously? How about you give me my money back and I just go read about this whole thing online, mate?
9. (500) Days Of Summer
So JGL finally gets over Summer by getting together with a girl called Autumn? God, that’s terrible.
That huge, action-filled airport escape scene sort of gets trampled by a sappy, cheesy finale.
12. The Ninth Gate
Polanski offers no real ending whatsoever. Thanks, Roman.
13. Rat Race
Fucking Smash Mouth.
14. Now You See Me
Mark Ruffalo was the Criminal Mastermind (TM) all along? Too far, Hollywood. Too far.
15. Fight Club
Blowing up all those buildings was just unnecessary, wasn't it?
16. War of the Worlds
Seriously, Spielberg? We know you can do better.
So she changed herself completely for a dude and then the car flies. OK, Randal Kleiser. Whatever you say.
18. The Witches
They totally messed up the poetic (and a little depressing) ending of the book. Luke's destiny was to live as a mouse.
19. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
So Jason Segel’s character’s a complete no-life loser, but it's OK to portray his ex-girlfriend as the bitch and he gets to have a happy ending? Bullshit.
20. Superman (1978)
Suspending belief is necessary with every Supes movie. But rewinding time by flying around the Earth backwards? Now that's just silly.
21. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
The whole thing is brought to an end with some dancing Ewoks. Fucking dancing Ewoks! Only a dancing Jabba the Hutt would have been worse.
