    in/at the end of the movie

    Hi everyone,

    I am in doubt about which is correct:

    1. He gets killed in the end of the movie.
    2. He gets killed at the end of the movie.

    Thank you.

    or He gets killed in the end. Right?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: in/at the end of the movie

    Although in that context, "in the end" means "eventually". It is possible for someone, for example, to be killed "in the end" but for the film to still carry on after their death. "In the end" doesn't necessarily mean "at the end of the film".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
