Split (2016)
4 Stars out of 5



Split is easily the best thing M. Night Shyamalan has done in years....going as far back as Signs, which was 14 years ago. That's a lot of sh*tty movies to sit through since then and I had all but given up on him ever doing anything worthy again. But that's not to say that I wasn't somewhat p*ssed off about the movie to some degree. Yes, Shyamalan is back to form, tapping his inner Alfred Hitchc*ck. But my gripe is that they made this movie PG-13. Sorry, but you can't make a convincing "horror / thriller" in this bracket. Because I know what a film maker can and can't get away with, I spent more than 2/3rd of the film never once believing that any harm would come to the girls in the basement. Granted, people meet their demise at the hands of the Beast....but I still say they f*cked up big time.

This is how I would have done it. Make it an R-Rated flick, have the Beast kill off a throwaway character at the beginning of the flick and then kidnap the girls. This sets up the intensity needed for the rest of the movie because now we have seen what the Beast is capable of and will be hanging on every move the girls make as they fight to survive. But no, since it was PG-13...I never once felt anything remotely close to what one is suppose to feel watching a movie in this genre. Okay, with that said, the movie begins and ends with James McAvoy's masterful performance. He is worth definitely checking out. Now for the big twist. I reeeeeeeeally wished I didn't know about the Unbreakable connection. I really wished I could have truly experience the twist as it was meant to be. F*ck people and their spoilers. F*CK! As for the final scene in the diner, it was awesome to see Bruce Willis reprising his role. Can't wait to see what Glass has in store for us. 4 Stars out of 5.
