The Happening…

Or should I say The (not) Happening!

I’ve liked most M. Night Shyamalan stuff, but I really didn’t get on well with this film. It’s really just a non-event. The story can be summarized in 1 sentance. The acting is pretty lame. It’s not scary, interesting or though provoking. I really don’t know what happened during the making of this film. Perhaps that’s the real mystery…

A number of friends have said that he’s got progrssively worse since The Sixth Sense, but i think this is a little unfair. I think Unbreakable is probably his best film, but not as mainstream as some of the others. Signs was quite good. I really liked The Village and I thought Lady in the Water was OK, but both films were probably saved by Bryce Dallas Howard.

I guess the only positive thing to say about the film was that it was mercifully short. I hope this is just a blip and he get’s back to some sort of form.

Cheers

One thought on “The Happening…”

  1. I think “The Sixth Sense” as Manoj’s best movie. “Unbreakable” is also a good one but not “Signs”. I don’t expect films like “The Last Airbender” from him. I haven’t seen other movies of him; so no comments about them.
