Wahlberg is atrocious, as wooden as the trees terrorising him.

Horror film is long on peril, but thin on plot.

Seeing The Happening is like going on an outing with an earnest person, who happens to be a drunk. Every time it starts to make sense, it slurs its speech and starts dropping things -- such as coherence and credibility.

More than anything, what bothers me about it is a sense of cheapness that ... centrally comes from a concept mainly built for shock value.

While not as laughable as the narcissistic Lady in the Water ,it fails just as miserably as narrative and even more miserably with its flat characters and tone deaf dialogue.

[A]n astonishment, so idiotic in conception and inept in execution that, after seeing it, one almost wonders whether it was real or imagined.

It's a great idea. A silent, unknown killing machine knocking people off while a science teacher tries to figure out why. But it just didn't work.

Shyamalan's latest is an improvement, but a full-fledged comeback ain't happening.

August 8, 2008

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.

The M. Knight brilliance is there in quick jolts of suspense and terror, but those moments are the exception in this otherwise flat little thriller.

Shyamalan's religious ideas are a lot like Bush's: Nearly theology free.

Cinefantastique

M. Night Shyamalan offers up low-intensity thrills that fail to match the shivery shudders of his best work (THE SIXTH SENSE, SIGNS). His patented approach - mixing domestic drama with horror - plays out on a much larger canvas.

It is the first film of his career that feels incompetent and utterly gratuitous at times.

Shadows on the Wall

Shyamalan creates another urban myth with this slow burning thriller. But it never quite comes to life, due to stiff directing and acting

The Cinema Source

Usually Shyamalan can hide his limitations as a screenwriter behind his skill as a director. Here, that skill fails him as well, and the whole movie falls apart.

Un nuevo fiasco de M. Night Shyamalan, que sigue siendo un director con ideas interesantes (tanto argumentales como visuales) pero que necesita urgentemente la ayuda de un buen guionista.
