How It Ends (R21)
Starring Theo James, Forest Whitaker, Kat Graham
Directed by David M Rosenthal
When the US is thrown into chaos and anarchy by a mysterious disaster (no one knows if it’s a nuclear attack, an alien invasion or an act of God), a young lawyer (Divergent's Theo James) hits the road to find his pregnant fiancée (The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham).
With the world falling apart, what is the worst that can happen next? Well, accompanying the man is his disapproving future father-in-law (Forest Whitaker). Just lovely.
This well-acted but grim and drab apocalyptic drama offers familiar lessons: When disorder prevails, all civility is out the window. So, if you want to be a Good Samaritan, make sure you’re packing heat. On Netflix. (**1/2)
