considering it just ended with no closure on either the 40's plotline or even the modern day one, it was just incredibly weird to watch.
First off, I want to make it clear that I'm not picking at your review.

But I want to say that Steve having no closure on his experiences in WWII is precisely the point. It's one of the things about the film I liked the most, as it drives home the loss he feels. Us not knowing how things turned out allows us to feel directly what Steve feels. It's literally as if he died. But he has also been given a second chance at life in another time.
