This movie doesn't have a happy ending. Jhon Carpenter looked at the test screening results and just went 'no, I like it better the way I created it'.
It wasn't reedited by 10 different companies all trying to score best with focus groups. It doesn't have any 'fake awesome', you know what I mean, the high notes that are just there to check the boxes. There are no product placement scenes. It doesn't have sensory overload CGI action scenes.
It is a good movie.
