Description

Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns with an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

    Very suspenseful and very unique to the genre. James McAvoy deserves an oscar nod for portraying all his characters as strong and convincing as he did!
  • It was boring

    I didn't understand the storyline but the main character was outstanding, his transformation from personality to personality was truly amazing and terrifying to watch. I would rate this movie higher if I understand what the movie was about. I don't understand why the main character kidnapped the girls and the ending made no sense to me. Still a good movie though

    WOW. Great acting by James McAvoy..had me scared too. I don't think there was a need for young girls/teens in their bra & underwear scenes, that ruined it for me a little.

    SPOLER ALERT. Though the high quality acting was consistent, the storytelling diminished into cheap thrills and then, in the final moment, an unsatisfying reference to one of Shyamalan's other movies. So, in lieu of an actual conclusion, we get "beast on the loose" news footage and a hokey B-movie "gotcha"! This alone would have been frustrating but the effective and disturbing portrayals of child abuse demanded something equal to the caliber of the imagery. I do not mean that we - the viewer - need to be left feeling warm and fuzzy. The conclusion can be uplifting, sad, tragic - just something that ties the story and actually concludes and respects the viewer. In place of anything satisfying, we get a glance to a police officer, a look of concern on the officer's face and ambiguity that I gather we’re supposed to accept as “interesting” or “clever and ambiguous”. In many ways, the problem is rooted in the silly idea that the “Beast” spared her because of her abuse. In other words, it wasn’t Casey’s intelligence and fight that allowed her to survive – it was the fact that she lost enough clothes for the “Beast” to see her body (and the marks). There is a feminist argument to make here, but I primarily mean my critique to be centered on bad craft. What made Sixth Sense so powerful was the dedication to character, story, and journey. In this, Shyamalan sets up character and story and then disregards them for makeup and special effects. There is a reason all of his work is compared to “Sixth Sense”. It was good.
