Netflix's Acts of Vengeance Movie Ending Explained - Spoilers

Acts of Vengeance Ending Explained - Spoilers

Spoiler alert, do not read on if you don't want to know who the killer was in Acts of Vengeance. The first question anyone might ask about Netflix's Acts of Vengeance movie is, who killed Frank's wife and child? Frank (the lawyer) is led to believe the killer is the Russian mafia for most of the film, but he finally finds out that the killer is a cop (Hank Strode). The reason the cop killed Frank's family was because a criminal Frank helped get back on the streets killed Hank's 12 year old daughter. A cycle of vengeance.

Movie Information: Synopsis 

Acts of Vengeance, released in 2017, is a movie of revenge, about a lawyer (Frank, played by Antonio Banderas) who loses his wife and child to a mysterious hit that the police detectives can't solve. So, Frank figures out he is punishing the wrong person (himself) by drinking and staying down, and learns to fight, and goes back to the scene of the crime to investigate. 

He has a run in with a gang and gets shot, and is rescued by an ER nurse named Alma, who nurses him back to health, and after that they both search for the killers. Throughout the movie, she gives him clues about the man who she thinks killed his family. In his quest to find the killer, he beats his suspects up and shows them a picture of his family to see if they recognize him (saying "there was no death in this man's eyes" when he wasn't the killer). 

Throughout Marcus Aurelius quotes from Meditations pops up in the Acts of Vengeance movie, which is a source of inspiration for Frank to keep his vow of silence and press on to ultimately find out that the killer is a cop (Hank Strode). They have a show down in the warehouse where Frank's wife and kid was killed by Hank. The cop tells Frank he killed his family because Frank helped a criminal get back on the streets, and that criminal killed the cop's little girl. 

Ending


During their showdown, Frank has the chance to kill Hank, but decides not too, quoting the greatest stoic, "The best revenge is to be unlike your enemy".

Reviews

The re views vary for Acts of Vengeance, from 5.6 stars out of ten on IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes says 20% of people liked it, and there are quite a few sites like this one that write up a good synopsis. This movie has been named also as one of the best revenge movies. Redditers basically say Banderas is washed up, an old guy who is losing gigs to his outdated caesar haircut, and the film is basically a Punisher knock off.

Netflix's "The Open House" Movie - Ending Explained, Spoiler Alert

"The Open House" Ending Explained, Spoilers Netflix recently released the new horror movie, "The Open House", to horrible reviews. The first, big question (spoiler alert) is who was the killer? This movie does not give us the satisfaction of knowing! It gives us no answers, and all those scary mysteries Netlfix promises in the film details, unexplained! And, everybody dies. There was no reason for anyone to watch and kill them, just a bunch of random scare tactics by the directors, and a big let down. How about that for a crappy flick to waste a Friday night on. 
Our Review  - Zero Stars! (with a nod to the semi OK acting by decent cast)
 Lots of red herrings, build ups for no reason, bad plot (could have been summed up in 10 minutes), lots of things happening but no explanation, and everybody dies with no answer to who the killer is nor the motive. No there was no ghosts to explain the weird stuff that happens (which would have been better than the meaningless dr…

Devilman Crybaby Ending Explained - Spoiler Alert

Ending Explained - Devilman Crybaby
Beware, spoilers ahead - let's look at Netflix's (watch here) Devilman Crybaby's ending explained. Some hated the ending (see Reddit comments), and you can imagine why, because in the end humanity dies. Yes, everyone dies. Disappointing especially when the whole movie sets up a hero (the boy, Akira) to merge with one of the demons attacking the planet in order to stop the take over. But, through the whole movie, we only see how flawed humanity is, and in the end, it's over for the people of Earth. The Earth is destroyed. That is how it ends. Post-credits shows a planet, but it is not the Earth but another "moon" created from the debris of the destroyed Earth, which may foretell yet another cycle of the same, after everything cools and spawns life again.

Moral of the story? A single man cannot change fate. Humans as a species are too selfish, and are doomed?

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained - Comment with your own theory - Spoiler Alert! Infinity Chamber (trailer here) was criticized by the LA Times for going on, and on and on, but what
is most intriguing is the ending. After nodding off through the whole film, the ending pulls things back in sharp focus by making you wonder what happened. After searching the internet, there are no official explanations for what happened, only some theories on Reddit, some of which make total sense. 
Ending: unfortunately, Frank Lerner did not make it out, whether out is the infinity chamber we saw throughout the movie, or wherever (in an interrogation to find the flashdrive, the hospital, etc.), Frank is still in there, and making peace with that by giving up the struggle and enjoying his time with his memory of something better.
