I love the sense of grandeur in Green's style. He somehow conveys the cinematic grandeur of Moses' "Ten Commandments" in the form of a Michael Myers story, which, of course, may seem silly to some viewers. strong>Score: 75 out of 100

The lesson that "Halloween Ends" and the entire trilogy and franchise teach you with the blood and horror in the story, is that horror and fear It never ends, it just takes on another form.

The final showdown between Laurie and Michael Myers is very exciting and this The excitement may be because we know this is the last time we'll see these two face to face (apparently it is). Whether you're a Laurie fan or a Michael fan, the ending will leave you satisfied.

Brian Truitt of USA Today

This movie seems weak compared to the main and familiar theme of "Halloween" and tells a story with the concept of good versus evil, which is expected to be interesting and exciting, but instead it ends in the most ordinary way possible.

Score: 50 out of 100

Halloween Ends is a satisfying conclusion to the Halloween trilogy, and overall , these three films represent the strongest possible continuity over the previous twelve films in the franchise since 1978's Halloween. Because of this, even though Greene took a risk and changed the plot (which probably won't be to many people's taste), providing a fitting conclusion to Laurie's storyline from Halloween 1978 to 2022 is worth any mistakes. However, it must be said that "Halloween" 2018 raised expectations for the trilogy, but this trend has weakened in subsequent seasons.

Score: 40 out of 100

Jamie Lee Curtis is reprising his iconic role after 44 years. You might think that the bloodthirsty Michael Myers will leave his mask behind in this divisive work and retire, but it must be said that Hollywood's greed for rebooting old works and characters is endless.

Ben Travis of Empire

Score: 40 out of 100

Michael's confrontation with Lori is interesting in its own way, but "Halloween Ends" is almost a bad final season for this franchise. It does, and the film gets lost in its own story trying to grapple with the horror behind Michael Myers' mask.

Kathy Walsh of the Los Angeles Times

Rating>: 40 out of 100

"Halloween Ends" has a false and forced commitment and loyalty to the original story, and clearly none of its elements have anything to do with the main theme of the previous films. The limitations of Haddonfield's narrative make this issue even more apparent.

After 44 years, 13 movies and countless corpses, it seems nave to think that "Halloween Ends" is really the end of things, but it's always fun to pretend. The producers wanted to end this new trilogy with Jimmy Lee Curtis, and it has to be said that this was their only interesting idea in this strange and boring movie.

Oppen Gleiberman of Variety

Halloween Ends doesn't end the franchise with the scariest or funnest story possible (which it should have, but didn't). Instead, the film has the most metaphorical and convoluted narrative that isn't very interesting.

Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair

Score: 20 out of 100 p>

"Halloween Ends" is a combination of strange tones and theses, which together become a film that is neither fun nor scary.
