Everyone has things that irritate them. Some get annoyed when they cannot meet with their friends, others become angry if their bets at 22Bet don’t win, and there are millions of people who are provoked with illogical movie endings. These 6 are the most annoying examples.
A Knight Shyamalan film starring Mel Gibson about an alien invasion. It has everything: mysterious crop circles and evil aliens wishing to destroy humanity as a whole and the family of single father Graham Hess in particular. In the finale it turns out that the aliens can be defeated by water, because it is about as deadly to them as sulfuric acid is to us.
Why, then, did they come to a planet composed of 70% water?
This brings to mind War of the Worlds (2005), where the bloodthirsty Martians were decimated by Earth’s microorganisms. But in this case you can forgive the film this fact, because when Herbert Wells wrote the book that was the basis of the movie, microorganisms seemed to be something outlandish.
City of Angels, 1998
A touching picture about an angel who falls in love with an ordinary mortal girl. He loves her so much that he gives up immortality. And almost at the same moment the girl crashes her bicycle into a truck.
The only thing worse than such a painful and abrupt ending could be a stab wound to the stomach on her name day from her beloved grandmother.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, 2008
“Indiana Jones” is one of a series of films that have been “killed off” by greedy movie companies. While the first three films are golden classics, the last one is clearly made to shake money out of fans.
It has all the commercial clichés: a disgusting and ill-conceived script, nuclear explosions, tons of bad computer graphics, aliens, and a blurred ending.
What’s most striking in the ending is that a spaceship that’s been deep in the ground for hundreds of years just takes off without explaining anything or saying goodbye to anyone.
Toward the end of the movie, Superman’s beloved girlfriend Lois Lane dies. The grief-stricken lover lets out an inhuman scream and decides to bring her back to life in a radical way. He begins circling the Earth at the speed of light against its rotation, time on the planet goes backwards, and the beloved comes back to life.
Such an illogical finale that destroys all the laws of physics can only be explained by the fact that the writers drove themselves into a dead end and decided to get out of it any way they could.
Film critics consider this to be Luc Besson’s weakest film. And it has an ending to match.
Devious smugglers use Lucy to transport drugs and sew them into the girl’s stomach. But the bag bursts, the drug gets into her blood, and the heroine’s brains start working like Stakhanovites. She immediately gets a bunch of new skills and abilities: telepathy, two-handed shooting and excessive pathos.
The film ends with the killer getting close to Lucy and shooting her in the head, but a moment before she shifts her consciousness into cyberspace and disappears. Then Lucy sends everyone the message, “I’m everywhere now,” and also leaves her friends an unusual flash drive.
Many questions arise: What about Lucy? Is she on the Internet, on the flash drive, or in the universe? And what is the message of this movie?
Ready Player One, 2018
The movie is based on the novel by Ernest Cline. Fans of the book won’t like it because there’s not much left of it. Steven Spielberg decided not to bother with character development and building a good pacing, and just stuffed the film with pop culture references.
In the finale, the protagonist, along with his new girlfriend and friends, takes control of the game Oasis and immediately makes it two forced-mandatory weekends for all the players to spend time with their families. Doesn’t he realize that by doing so he will be bringing down the global economy every week? And on the other hand, just two days a week per family? It sounds a little too implausible even for a sci-fi movie.
