Now I know why Netflix has this
13 July 2018 | by kojak-16269See all my reviews

How it ends... Good title for a movie that had no ending. I guess the writers had no idea what was happening in this world either, since they couldn't be bothered to tell us. This movie had so much potential that was never realized. Time after time they set up a premise that never pays off. Going into this I was very excited, but wondered if I would be left disappointed. In the end I have to say I am very disappointed. No explanations, and the end of the movie was as if the writers just gave up. Unless this is being set up for a sequel or a series which I seriously doubt. This movie is an epic failure.
