Shyamalan is a master at a visual iconic moment - but the "filler" (you might have learned about it in English class by this name: "story") gets weaker and weaker every film.
That's right, hop on board the safe 'bash Shyamalan bus'. The reason many 'peasants' weren't scared is because their miniscule minds couldn't grasp how scary and plausible this is, yes plausible! Our arboreal cohabitants produce all sorts of defensive toxins and neurotoxins are possible. Airborne pollination mechanisms or plant retroviral dna modification could communicate it. The reason for the 'semi-robotic' behaviour is shock, any intelligent person knows people don't always react to major events with screaming and tearing their hair out.The story is good, it carries the concept through well. There's a couple of words you might have learned about in English class: logical justification, used less and less every review of yours I read.

@pixarian72: Sorry, but no. This isn't about people not understanding the issues, it's a shitty film. The "semi-robotic" acting isn't a clever device to communicate shock, it's shitty acting.
