Just him wanting to be back with who Will had taken. An Will wanting to be back with his daughter?






To be honest, I didn't really like either of them. They really could've done better. The first half of the movie was SO GOOD. then it just collapsed. If they added another hardcore action scene after ethan and anna show up, and had a much more bad ass death for will smith it wouldve been oscar worthy.

Say, will smith being dragged away to his death after giving the cure to anna just as she is able to escape in the middle of the night? Idk, some better and less ******** than a zombie running into the glass like jack lambert and will smith thinking he is marshawn lynch going into beast mode with that grenade wouldve been much better. It's still one of my favorite movies tho just because I am fascinated with being the only man left on the planet. Imagine that...

And as for the guy two posts above who talked about just using google, I did plenty of research, I was just curious if anyone has inside sources to movies, or IMDBPro or something that couldve told me more information... no need to be a wise ass.

But yeah, the ending was definitly weak. Just thinking in your head there are so many ways it couldve been better and became a classic. I'm supprised will smith supported the last 30 minutes of the movie. It was a terrible let down to a BOSS first hour.

Hopefully this next one it epic, if it happens.

Wow, ID4 was such a great movie. (Is this the Will Smith Hype thread????)
Part 2 (and 3?!) would be about.... ? Would it still have Will, Jeff G, Mr. President (don't know his name)...
or will it be re-casted and go straight to DVD? Or one of those awful SyFy movies

Count me in with the "loved the movie until Ethan and Anna showed up" group. It took something away from the movie, just having them walk up.

The dog dying I was fine with. I mean, it made me feel sad, but it was a huge point in the movie. They could have done so much more with Neville's depression than just have him try to die, and then encounter more people.

I guess the dog dying isn't so bad, it's just the 40 minutes that followed that was ending. if there was another badass action scene and the intro of anna and ethan was better it woudlve been sick.

also, him finding the cure and then givng his life to protect it coudlve been so much better.

again, I am suprised will smith signed off on it. you would think he wouldve thought of something better.

Yeah, they butchered it. The ending was pointless, meaningless, and in a sense, completely unnecessary.

The original ending in the book, and I guess the alternate one, were better.

And what the heck would the prequel be about? We know what happens to the family, to the world, and everything. Guess it'd be something like this:

I think they played the point after the dog's death fine. I mean, how could they really do more with it when he was ready to kill himself not long after? They would have had to find some way for him to still have motivation to do **** because he obviously wasn't interested in living, or looking for a cure anymore once his dog died so while Anna and Ethan may not have been the best follow up, it would have had to of been something similiar.


Other then people or a person showing up, I doubt he lived very much longer. It pissed me off seeing the dog die, but you almost had to expect it. Movies like this pets don't really last that long anyway, but it was just how close of a bond they had is what messed me up. Plus I'm a huge dog person myself.


Where would this prequel take place though? What setting? I think it's best if it's just left alone. I don't think the movie really tanked at the end, it was ok, but not terrible. That alternate ending was terrible as hell though, for so many reasons.


I still agree with someone in that I didn't know what the whole butterfly connection was. I followed along with it all story, but it needs to have more of a meaning. None the less, when I bought my blu ray player this past xmas it was one of the first movies I purchased along with I Robot. If you haven't seen it on blu ray yet it then do it, looks beautiful.

I agree with a lot of this, except for not being able to do much after the dog dies.

It's a Will Smith movie, someone easily could've thought of another BOSS scene to throw in there to make the 2nd half worth watching. A sweet fight scene or something. That car on the dock scene was ***, then ethan and anna show up and it's borning. The ending fight was stupid and then the ending was just terrible.

They coudlve put in a boss like exploring a building into a fight or something.
