This article discusses the ending of the Netflix South Korean film Carter (2022), so it will contain major spoilers.
In the midst of a pandemic, Carter wakes up in a room with no clue as to who he is or how he got there. All he has is a device in the back of his head, an explosive inserted in his mouth, and a voice in his ear, but it is that voice he must trust if he is to get out of whatever jackpot he’s involved in alive.
After arriving at the facility where the vaccine or cure for the DMZ virus is under development, Carter has to fight his way out with Ha-na, Dr. Jung, and the woman who has been speaking to him via his earpiece since he woke up in that room. It has been suggested to Carter that she is in fact his wife, but still with no memory of anything prior to that rude awakening, he cannot be sure of anything aside from the fact she clearly doesn’t appear to be one of the bad guys.
Netflix film Carter (2022) ending explained
After they make it out of the facility, Carter has the device in the back of his head removed, which enables him to access his memories once more, and his whole life effectively flashes before his eyes. He confirms that the woman is his wife and that the child they left the facility with alongside Ha-na is their daughter, who was infected with DMZ right back at the start of the coup.
As escapees of the facility, the North Korean militants are hot on the tails of the group — they need Dr. Jung’s daughter as she is the solution to the pandemic, but with the whole group now determined to protect the child that brought them back together, one last huge and absolutely ridiculous fight erupts on a freight train and Carter faces off with command. Helicopters take out helicopters like it’s some sort of airborne game of chess, and eventually, Carter takes down the coup, with the freight train tritely riding off into a valley with its newly safe, precious cargo.
