    I thought the ending was at least very original. sort of a greek tragedy.
    I read the book years ago and think they did a good job for once. I completely agree with Hexis.

    I happened upon this movie a week ago!!!!

    I was intuitive/perceptive enough to realize within several minutes of watching that is was more than just a horror film, so I looked it up on wikipedia, and read about the fucked up ending, THANK GOD!!!

    So, I stopped watching it 20 minutes before it was scheduled to be over.

    I spoke to an ISTP who both watched the movie and read the novella, he said that the movie was more fucked up for the protagonist yet more uplifting for mankind, I dunno.

    Ugh, just reading about it disturbed the fuck out of me, to be put in that situation...

    :sad:

    I actually really enjoyed this movie and the ending. Not to say it was well done, but little things were good.
    I also really like those times where you can think "You know what would be really messed up..." and it turns out to be that worst possible scenario. I don't want it in every movie, but it's a bit refreshing from the usual way they end.
    I think the only thing i would have changed was the duration of time that passed before the trucks passed him.

    I've heard whining about this ending before, but I thought it was a good movie with a good ending. That's how a twist ought to be done.

    As I've said about other movies, I watch to become/feel engaged, and if some people say they don't like the ending because it's "depressing," then I say the movie-maker has accomplished what he set out to do.

    Well, with me I don't care if the end is depressing (I like the "tragic" British original ending to The Descent far better than the vague American one)... I just hate it when a good story with a good ending is changed needlessly and to lower quality in the translation to cinema. The story was more nuanced with King's treatment.

    Right...I never read the book, so maybe that's true.

    I don't mind if a story ending is depressing either. The "Love Conquers All" version of Brazil is an abomination. And it preferred the director's cut of Blade Runner. I didn't think the end of The Mist was depressing: it was simply pointless. That's what I got out of it; others may see something different. That's what's great about art.

    Was not impressed with the majority of the movie, but I cried like a little girl at the ending. But I don't give a shit about "real" and I lose myself in stories pretty easily, suspending my disbelief comes naturally to me.

    I hated the rest of the movie. So when the ending rolled around, it was kind of a relief. I just wanted it to be over and it was. And in a way it made me feel like I got back at the characters for being so dumb.

    +1 for the ending. Pay back's a bitch.
    -3 for the movie.
