‘Mad God’ takes viewers to the deepest depths of the earth after the destruction. One assassin degrades himself beyond a strange group of citizens living in a multidisciplinary world until he comes to a conclusion similar to that of the mind (literally). The surreal narrative includes a few small stories about various characters living in an almost biblical dark world.
In the midst of the chaos, however, and despite the title, there seems to be a great deal of work to be done. As a Murderer, let’s dive into the sad depths of ‘Mad God’ and see what we find.
Mad God: Synopsys
A single man known as the Assassin descends through a series of underground tunnels – many with plans for a catastrophic apocalypse while others are swallowed up by the destruction of time. Coming out of the diving machine, the Assassin continues on foot, constantly talking on a crumbling map. His dwelling place is a whirlwind of post-destruction chaos, almost like a kind of twisted purse. Strange creatures abound on the scene rang from being smaller to him many times than the Assassin, who continues his inspection unscathed.
After traversing another country and climbing to the bottom, the Assassin arrives at his destination. He glances around to uncover a pile of suitcases like the one he is carrying. Clearly, there have been thousands like him before. He pulls out an explosive in his case and does not set the timer before being captured by the vicious beast. The timeline in the explosion is volatile, and soon, our Assassin is in the hands of the same captors who have captured all his predecessors.
Assassin’s captors grabbed a variety of bullets in his gut before drilling a hole in his head. An extended view, appearing from Assassin’s memory, shows that, far above the “face,” the Last Man has an army of assassins who bring him down one by one. In his control room, he follows the progress of each of his Assassins and appears to have lowered one whenever he is caught.
Mad God: Ending Explained
At that point, the kidnappers also found a strange, slippery inside of Assassin and quickly tore it to pieces. The offspring are taken by a powerful creature from the captors and into the melting pot. Here the seed is crushed and transformed into a fine powder that appears to open up the site and shake the acidic soil.
The dust effects appear to shake the faulty bomb set by the Assassin, and the needle in its timer, a short distance to its peak, begins to move again. As the film draws to a close, we get a glimpse of the Last Man standing at the top with his murderous army, peering through the earth below to see if a bomb has exploded or not.
So, after what appears to be millions of attempts (judging by the moving piles of suitcases), it seems that the bomb planted by the Assassin could eventually explode. It is unclear how many times the previous assassins tried to plant the bomb; however, from the familiar actions of the whole process, it seems that the man above up has sent a great number into a dark and chaotic world.
Additionally, the kidnappers below have an equally large group of kidnapped assassins who have all been subjected to brutal torture and mutilation. Perhaps what makes this particular Killer unique is that interest is found within him. Finally, it seems to be the result of an interest rate (after it has turned to dust) when the incorrect bomb timer starts working again. So, the explosion almost happened, and the film closes just moments before the Last Man on top sees the effects of the explosion.
Yes, as not clearly indicated, there is little chance that the bomb will explode. However, this could mean that the cycle is starting all over again, and the Last Man sends down another Assassin. If you look at the Assassin’s army collected above, it seems to be a never-ending process until the bomb explodes at the end. Therefore, it seems appropriate that the film be focused on the final scene in which the bomb explodes.
This leaves many questions about what happened after the bombing. The Last Man can continue to send Assassins to the now-defunct world. There is also the possibility that this is one of the many different worlds the Last Man looks at, and after the bombing, he simply moves on to the next one. For a better view of what happens next, it’s probably worth looking at why Last Man sent Assassins down in the first place.
The Last Man was able to see himself as a ruler in this tumultuous world below and could be instrumental in determining its destiny. Another explanation, in the same way, would be that the Last Man was doing experiments in the underworld and had detonated many bombs on different levels of the world with many stages. This could explain the many different apocalyptic areas the Assassin sank into before reaching his destination.
Thus, The Last Man could be the name “Mad God,” sending the murderers to the earth below while looking at the results of his hands up. However, the post-apocalyptic turmoil of the lower world also frightens the Last Man, making it appear that he has no control over it at all. Maybe it’s part of a creative test that went wrong, which could explain why he’s trying to destroy you. Of course, in line with the bizarre nature of the story, The Last Man uses a stainless steel dipper and dynamite sticks to accomplish his seemingly lofty mission.
Finally, there are clear reasons why the Last Man, though seemingly cowardly, seeks to destroy the dark and chaotic world below. He and his commanded Assassins army are very different from the senseless violence that goes on below, and by ending it, the Last Man may try to create a new, more orderly world. His army of Assassins also asserts that he has no shortage of subordinates and may do more with command, as a god, in order to complete his new world. “Mad God.”
