Re: Frank Darabont's The Mist *SPOILERS*

^^

I don't mind a 'sad' ending, but it was abrupt....

It's like having--even though I haven't seen the film, but I know of the actual woman--Erin Brockovich be so determined for most of the film...and suddenly, towards the end, give up with no reason.

Yeah, we know she didn't 'give up' in reality, but we're looking at an 'alternate reality' if you will....

We can look at another character: Rocky Balboa. He goes through majority of the film (the first) determined to get his shot, but at the very last minute he gives up...We're not told why...he just gives up...(Maybe he starts screaming like Thomas Jane in the film , but still...)...
