I had a sick feeling in my gut as well. There is a duel message here.
The war has just begun.
Live by the sword. Die by the sword.
Alayna was probably assassinated. Miller in turn knew that. He was simply exacting revenge.
Another message, uttered by Alayna, needs to be remembered here.
"[Pakistani] ISI and the CIA are Al-Quaida."
Langdon just scoffed at that, then later to Miller pretty much confirmed Illuminati "talking points." About the need for world domination via terror. (9/11, 7/7, Mumbai, etc.)

Agreed. I really enjoyed the film, and it's more realistic tone, until the final scene. I don't watch movies to make life seem more miserable than it already feels.

I just finished the film and I spent the past five minutes from then staring at my comp going "whoa". That was something!
I agree it is totally depressing, however therein lies the impact. Aren`t you too tired of all the hollywood endings where situations that cannot possibly have good outcome in real life somehow get all sorted out and off into the sunset we frolic?
