What Is Interceptor About?
The Netflix movie Interceptor is about terrorists who want to launch a nuclear attack on the United States with stolen missiles. When the terrorists attack a remote missile Interceptor platform that could stop their missiles, an officer, Captain J.J. Collins, defends the facility with courage and ingenuity.
Interceptor Ending Explained
Beaver was working for the Russian terrorists; with his help, Alexander had once penetrated the control room and launched a missile so that Americans could witness their citizens being killed and understand the scale of destruction that lay ahead. To shoot down the interceptor and the approaching nuclear missile, Captain J.J. Collins was able to push them back just in time. The rig was sinking and if they were underwater they couldn’t fire the missiles, so they had to take action to stay above the surface.
Rahul Shah took up the mantle and told JJ that he would jump into the sea and try to reach the basement from where the valves could be closed. However, Beaver made it to the basement and killed Rahul Shah.
Alexander was just a pawn who did it for the money; other Russian terrorists were responsible for the mission. JJ believed that if she could persuade Alexander to launch his missile before the rig went down, she could shoot down the interceptors. So she got Alexander to give her the green light to take command. JJ actually hid in the control room when Beaver went in to tell Alexander that she had escaped and was probably hiding on the roof. She then murdered Alexander’s friend before killing Corporal Beaver Baker on the roof. Then JJ was dropped into the ocean.
She arrived at the rig just in time, but the launch button had been destroyed. Before the 12-minute timer expired, she used Beaver’s laptop to launch the interceptor missiles. Meanwhile, Alexander thought he would be rescued by his Russian friends and wouldn’t have to fear persecution by the American government.
Then a submarine emerged from the water with Russian terrorists aboard. But since the mission had already failed, things didn’t go as Alexander had hoped, because he was killed instantly. They didn’t kill JJ, even though she was the one who foiled their plan, because that wouldn’t have satisfied their revenge. At the end of the movie, the President then sought out JJ and subsequently appointed her to the National Security Staff.
