I'm going to keep this spoiler free but the ending was definitely gutsy. I know a lot of people didn't like how it finished and that was it was completely unnecessary. As a result they're not going to enjoy the film knowing what's going to happen.
I don't know if I'm in the minority here but I was actually satisfied with the ending. I understood why the situation happened, I accepted it, and it finished everything off quite nicely. If I had been writing the story I would have actually done the same. Sometimes I don't like to let my characters have everything they want or hoped for. So it got me thinking about gusty endings. I know they're not always the popular route but I think now and again there needs to be an author to come along and give people a different type of ending. Every story would be boring if everything became a fairytale happy ending and all the villains were defeated. I need a story that comes along and gives me the more bittersweet route if it is necessary to the story. Every once in a while I like an author to shock me and play with my emotions.
How do you feel about gutsy endings? Any book recommendations?
