I didn't mind the ending so much. Yeah I enjoyed him taking revenge on the murderers and I thought his grand plan had merit, but was wrong (avoiding spoilers here). Was there another ending filmed? What was it? PM me.
Loved the movie, though its unfortunate the film's ending just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the film. Funny that Jamie Fox opted out of playing the bad guy only for Gerard Butler to come in and make the so-called villain so charismatic that Fox's protagonist becomes unlikable by comparison. I spent the entire time rooting for Butler and hating Jamie Fox, especially since while the antagonist evolves throughout the film the protagonist does not one iota. I'll buy this regardless of whether there is an alternate ending or not, but would love to see an ending that fits better with the rest of the film.
Day one for me. I also found myself rooting for Butler's character through out. I mean who thinks of a greedy lawyer as a hero anyway. Lol. The blue collar working man getting screwed over is the real hero here.
This, in my opinion, would have been one of the best films of the year if they didnt ruin it with the ending. This movie makes me wish I could rewrite movies sometimes. But you must admit it was still a great film all around. Great actoing and a good storyline (until the end...lol)
