The Village doesn't pack quite the punch of The Sixth Sense, but it's equal to Shyamalan's last two films.
I've never disagreed with Richard Roeper more. And I usually like what he says. The Village was no where NEAR as good as the last films.

Richard is my favorite critic -- I usually agree with him -- but he really missed the mark on this one. Signs and Unbreakable are far superior to this disappointment.

Not even close. MNS's pics are getting progressively worse. His reputation as a director is circling the drain, even as we speak, pending the release of Avatar. As spectacular as the effects will be, he sucks at directing. Look at the performances decent actors give in his movies. They're crap.

Richard is 100% right on this one. The Village is a misunderstood masterpiece that will one day have the recognition it deserves. In my book, it's Shyamalan's best film to date.

This film is good, however it's nowhere near as good as the masterpieces The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable,
