I just watched this one. I also thought it was what you thought it was going to be, and that was a good movie in and of itself. But, yeh, the ultimate impact was pretty intense. I just got finished watching it and I'm still kind of out to lunch. It reminds me of Donnie Darko in that sense, that you get that unexpected and intense hammer blow at the end. It's almost like they set you up by playing to the standard movie story lines, making you think you know what's going to happen.
