Netflix has done a pretty solid job of transitioning into their original content. Almost every day it seems like they have something new to show audiences. However, I will also say that a lot of their films tend to skew more towards the indie side of things. With a few exceptions, you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see any of their movies playing at the local cinemas, especially since they have a tendency to delve into more niche genres. But with one of their latest efforts, How It Ends, they venture pretty close to what I would consider a theatrical experience.

The film stars Forest Whitaker and Theo James in what is a mysterious, apocalyptic scenario. The world seems to be going haywire, and Whitaker and James’ characters find themselves having to trek across the country to find their daughter/wife, respectively.

Below is the official synopsis for How It Ends:

“As a mysterious apocalypse causes the spread of misinformation and violence, a man and his estranged father-in-law race across a chaotic and fractured country to save his pregnant wife.”

On the whole, I’d say this film manages to look exactly what I’d imagine an upper, mid-budget film to look. Between the talent present, the visuals, the high-octane pacing, it’s something that would feel right at home on the big screen. What do you think of Netflix’s latest film?

How It Ends hits Netflix on July 13, 2018.
