When will the world end, and why on earth is it taking so long? These are not ideal questions to ponder while watching a film about the apocalypse. And yet in the Netflix-produced How it Ends, a doomsday road movie almost pathologically devoid of purpose, we wait and wait and wait, and the mind wanders. Director David M.

It isn't thick, spooky smoke that chokes the characters in this film but a terrible air of complacency.
