That was my only real issue with this film too.

A video game series could. In spades.

Go read through the book blogs and most people hated the real ending. I thought the way it ended was fine, satisfied both opinions and very creative.

I wouldn't say the ending ruins the film, but it definitely takes away from it.

It's a very harsh assessment of this movie, and I reluctantly agree. I've never been a fan of the "but that's not how it happened... this is how it really happened" ending. Regardless, I enjoyed the movie, and I thought that Johnson, Del Toro, and Travolta all played their characters beautifully. The whole cast was quite impressive. A nice return to the action genre for Oliver Stone.
