Patel incinerating Crash and the Boys seemed especially callous.
We all know that no one in video games or comics stays dead, but in the context of the movie, all the people that died stayed dead for good (except Scott). I would have loved an epilogue where we see the defeated characters respawn and move on with their lives.
I think it's the same reaction Frank Oz got from Little Shop of Horror
's test-screenings: The ending of the stage show didn't work on screen because there was no curtain call.
My other problem was that Ramona and Scott were the least interesting characters in the film.
Looked amazing though.
