Don't Watch: Eagle Eye's Alternate Ending - This is Bad!
One of the most successful posts we've ever written was for I Am Legend's original ending (it has received 1478 comments). The reason I went out of my way to mention it at the time was because I think it was a far superior ending that should've been in the movie. However, today we have an example of the exact opposite - an alternate ending for Eagle Eye that was thankfully not in the movie. Not only is it a mini commercial for Rock Band (maybe they couldn't get the rights?), but it's just plain bad. Check it out below, if you so wish, before Paramount whips it off of YouTube and forces you to pay money to buy the DVD to see it.
I actually don't even really remember what the ending was before this. I enjoyed some of the earlier parts of Eagle Eye, but I guess I just lost interest by the time it got to the end. I'm not even that excited to watch it again now that it's out on Blu-Ray. That said, I'll admit that this is an interesting ending, but that's it. There seems to be an increasingly popular trend of ending movies on a note that says this is just the beginning of more (e.g. No Country for Old Men, Funny Games). I think it's sometimes a bold move, but in Eagle Eye, it would've been awfully cheesy, especially setup around a bunch of kids playing Rock Band. Thoughts?
