  • The ending was perfect. It was supposed to be cringe worthy and supposed to make you angry because it was two insane people doing insane things.

  • Was it supposed to be scary??

  • Im split on it. It was a good movie but the way it ended pissed me off. Nothing outside of what Ben did during his time as a suspect made any sense to me. I felt myself cringing at the things he did not do to bring about justice. His fears within the relationship seemed normal until you saw how far he was able to let things go, and let that fear take him. He never fully stood up. He was meek, a bad character, not true to what I would think any normal person would do in that situation. I suppose that was supposed to help with the entertainment value ... but it just made me angry overall.

@Kreakin Scary to be in that situation that Ben Afleck was in for sure. A perfect framing against you. Having no one be able to believe you about the truth of the matter and then being stuck in the relationship out of fear that no one would believe you ... Pretty darn scary. He's married to a killer, knows it, and can do nothing about it.

To far fetched for it to be scary, the Police would have spotted it as a set up. Perhaps if the CIA were the orchestrator but not Rosamund Pike's character.

Regardless of whether he got put away or not based on the evidence the cops found ... Had she never surfaced, his public image and life was ruined. He lost his mistress because of it, his sister and their bar was in shambles due to protesters, the media had a field day with him. Public opinion condemned him regardless of what the legal system did right or wrong. We see that even today. Innocent cops still get smeared in racially charged crimes etc. etc. The police factor as far as damage goes was only a small one.

She emptied all of their money and voided any chance at him getting the life insurance regardless of the legal outcome. Ruined his identity with her parents ... No way they are going to take him under their wing. No family ... Nothing.

Part of the reason he fears her still at the end ... She broke him down good to the point where he couldnt live without her. Became the girl she said she would never be to him. Has him on a leash to be paraded.

End was a little week, and it seemed to get more unbelievable as it moved along - still a good movie.
