The final chapter concludes that early presumptions about the simplicity and sadism of these movies are not wholly accurate. Instead, the shifts in perspective result in more complex viewing experiences both within a single film as well as across the whole series. Finally, this chapter considers the stylistic connections between these films and contemporary Hollywood movies that have been recognized and praised by the critical establishment. This implies these movies have more to offer the world of film than their critical legacy suggests.
