Greenland Ending: Everything you should know
Disaster films have recently become an unusual ware among Hollywood offerings. Gone are the days when at least one or two epic disaster films were released every year. This is why Rick Roman Waugh’s ‘Greenland’ is special.
He and lead star Gerard Butler (also a co-producer) have previously worked together in ‘Angel Has Fallen’, the third installment of 2019 is in the ‘Has Fallen’ film franchise and they get to work with each other.
Relaxed, she is quite clear in Butler’s performance. The film revolves around John Garrity (Butler), his wife Allison (Morena Baccarin), and their son Nathan (Roger Dale Floyd), as they head to an underground shelter in Greenland before the extinction-level piece of debris Let’s try to make our way. An interstellar comet hits Earth.
Greenland Plot Details: What Happens in the Movie?
The film begins after John returns home, which should be a long period. He and Allison had to deal with serious marital issues, and as we later learned, John at one point betrayed his wife. They are now trying to put all that behind them.
Allison, however, refuses this when John calls her point-blank, the reason that she lets John return is because Nathan misses her father. As Garriet tackles his internal problems, an interstellar comet called Clarke enters the solar system.
On the day it has to pass through the earth, the couple has arranged to live together with friends from their affluent neighborhood. It turns out that Clarke is actually a huge group of traveling debris.
Due to the gravity of the Sun, many pieces of debris change their trajectory towards the Earth. While most are harmless, burning out before they reach the ground can potentially destroy cities.
Just before the disaster, John receives a pre-recorded message on his phone (a similar message appears on family TV), telling him that he and his family have been selected for evacuation and are in Atlanta He has been instructed to leave from his home, Robbins Air Force Base from Georgia, where planes are waiting for him and others like him.
Not knowing where these planes will take him, Garriet realizes that this is still his best option. However, when they arrive there, John is separated from his family after John goes back to his car to withdraw Nathan’s diabetes medications, and Nathan is not allowed to board the plane due to his condition.
Through a note left on the windshield of his car, Allison tells John that he and Nathan are going to their father’s house. On his way, John realizes that the aircraft was to take him to Greenland, where an underground bunker will be used as a shelter,
when the largest piece of debris, larger than a meteor, will be the extinction of the dinosaurs. Caused, hit Western Europe. He also knows that there will be last-minute flights to the bunker flying from Canada. Eventually, they reunite, John and Allison decide to catch one of the planes and make one last attempt to fly to Greenland.
Greenland Ending Explained:
John is initially baffled as to any of his neighbors as to why he and his family were chosen for rehabilitation. As it later turns out, it was for his job as a structural engineer. He manufactures high rises, and the government will certainly need people like him in the postwar world.
This privilege has been given to a very selected portion of the total population. People related to doctors, engineers, and other professions who can actively contribute to society building in the future have been selected.
Knowing that they cannot save everyone, the government has focused only on ensuring the safety of those who, in turn, will ensure the survival of humanity. 99% of Armed Forces families were not selected for evacuation.
Mainly, law and order have been rapidly changed by anarchy and anarchy. People have begun to give in to despair, but fortunately for the Garrity family, there are still people in the world who hold on to their integrity and compassion.
On the way home to Allison’s father, both he and John have separate encounters in which humanity has to face the best and the worst, one of the robbers, who helps Allison and Nathan, a couple.
(David Denman) and Hop Davis), who is initially kind and considerate and offers a ride to the mother-and-son duo in their cars, Allison’s band Steals Joe who recognizes him as one of the selected people, throws him out of the car, and takes up with Nathan. It is with the help of several military personnel that he later locates her.
A medical professional gives her a sufficient supply of insulin and other drugs for Nathan that lasts for some time. None of these people have to be there. And yet, they have volunteered to serve and act with empathy as humanity faces its twilight hour.
The privilege given to the Garrettees due to John’s education and achievements is suddenly taken away the moment they discover that Nathan is diabetic, and he is left to wonder about his fate like most people on Earth.
Desperately hoping that what he has heard about flights to Canada is true, John races against time as he heads towards the airport. Luckily, the plane is there. One of the family assures the pilot that they allow it to board.
When they finally reach Greenland, a blowout causes the plane to crash, killing the pilots. Garrity and other passengers take them to the bunker just before the collision.
As the family awaits the effect, Nathan tears off the things he has heard from some of his friends and first mentions why he is not doing the glow he is seeing before his death. Her father consoles her by saying that she and Allison love him from the bottom of her heart,
And most importantly right now, they are all together in the moment. John has known that there is always a possibility that they may not reach the bunker on time, and even if they do, it may not have any effect. When he wants his wife and son to be with him when a great calamity comes.
These types of films always have a scientific narrative, delivering exposure, and often serving as the main protagonist. Greenland is devoid of all that. It particularly focuses on Garritis and his visit to the bunker. John Garrity is not a heroic character.
He never informed his neighbors about Greenland, despite promising, and correctly and practically refused to take one of his daughters with him, at the time knowing they had to leave him behind at the airport Will happen.
However, seeing how everything changes, that girl could have survived if he had agreed to take her. Later, he saves a passenger from a burning car. As the whole planet prepares to go into flames soon, this random act of courage seems somewhat futile.
John is not a classic disaster film hero who saves the entire human race. But he is without a doubt, a man who will go to any length to protect his family.
A New Dawn
The impact occurs, and the walls of the bunker somehow manage to hold up against the waves of destruction after the explosion. When Garrick and the others exit the bunker, nine months pass, and the ashes and radiation fall again. The world is completely ruined.
The extent of the destruction is demonstrated through images of ruined cities such as Sydney, Mexico City, and Paris. An orbital view of the planet shows a massive crater where Clark’s largest piece of debris was killed. There are also many small craters dotting the entire planet.
As the survivors arrive in the new landscape, they see some birds flying. Despite the complete destruction of human civilization, large-scale life has found a way to continue existing. Greenland’s bunker in Helsinki, New Delhi, Beirut, Kathmandu, Moscow, and Sao Paolo hears from people who learn that people in those places have survived.
What is to come later is a memorable work for John and his generation of survivors. They must rebuild the foundations of civilization and ensure that whatever holds the poster on it is strong enough to hold its weight.
Humanity would be unlikely to return to its previous state for at least a thousand years, which could possibly be a good thing. No shortcomings of the original are needed for reconstruction.
There may be less pollution, war, over-dependence on fossil fuels. After being on the verge of extinction, people can finally learn how to co-exist with each other.
