As per director Sam Hargrave, the decision taken during the climax of the film was done deliberately in order for viewers to interpret the film's finale. During an interview with an entertainment portal in the USA, Sam Hargrave revealed that if a viewer watches the film and believes that Tyler's redemption is completed by his sacrifice, then they can consider him dead. Whereas, if some viewers loved Tyler's character and wished for him to survive at the end of the film, then they envision his image at the final shot of the film.
