The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter review – Josh Brolin hunts for dignity in Netflix comedy
R29 Original Series
How it felt like the close of this film would never come. How we so commonly return in cinema, especially lately, to visions of the end of the world. How the actual ending of this film is an atrocious cheat. Sam is pregnant, and Will wants to ask Tom for her hand in marriage to start a family. Not really. All cell service to the West Coast goes down. And then things get even more ominous as the power goes out in Chicago and panic sets in. Knowing that transportation will go down shortly and that the roads are their best route west, Will and Tom jump in the car and head to Seattle to save Sam. Two days into this vision of national crisis and people are shooting each other for gasoline and basically taking the law into their own hands. Rosenthal completely waste even the minimal opportunity to say anything interesting about macho men trying to save their damsel in distress.

Spoilers ahead. The loss of signal during a FaceTime call is never a welcome occurrence. Shoddy WiFi or inclement weather can all show signs of existence with one dropped connection. And in Netflix's new movie How It Ends , an interrupted call is a sign of an apocalyptic event. The thriller explores the dread that forms after an earthquake-like event occurs on the California coast, followed by a power outage and random eruptions of fire. The only shred of information that the characters, and audiences, have about what might be the cause of this catastrophe is the initial blast on the coast. Beyond that, it's anyone's guess. However, one character's conspiracy theory about what caused the apocalypse in How It Ends is too juicy not to indulge. One of the trademarks to many disaster movies is the mysterious nature of the events that cause them.
