This movie is actually an adaptation of the novel 'Intensity' by Dean Koontz. Koontz's novel, a masterpiece of horror was probably one of the best books I have ever read (and one of the few Koontz novels I actually liked). While I found both the book and the movie to be edge-of-the- seat captivating, the movie bastardizes Koontz's vision at the end, to the point where the story is laughable.
I am all for interpretive endings, and shocking twists, but this ending was so ridiculous and impossible (in terms of continuity) that it ruins the entire movie.
As in the early works of Stephen King, its simply another case of the movie industry taking a great story and completely destroying it's credibility.
If you actually liked this movie, I highly recommend you read the book. You will be ten times more satisfied.
