A film that transcends the concept of the modern horror film as it has strong acting, a magnificent story, and all in all a perfect film.
Acting - 10/10
One word: Stupendous! Bruce Willis stuns in this film as the child psychologist Malcolm Crowe, and the supporting cast of Toni Collete and Olivia Williams also do their lifting as a grief-strivkne mother and the wife of the psychologist. However, the true star is Haley Joel Osment in his role as Cole Sear the boy who "sees dead people" and i am absoulutely shaken to my core by this little kid. i think he was cheated by the academy and deserved to win the Oscar for supporting actor instead of Michael Caine (i still love you Michael).
Story - 10/10
Absolutely something of a fresh air from the horror stories we see and hear today. Child Psychologist Malcolm Crowe(Bruce Willis) has just received an award from the mayor for his contributions to the community of Philadelphia but is then shot by a former patient of his Vincent Gray (Donnie Wahlberg). Then the fall after wards he stumbles upon a boy who experiences paranormal visions named Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment) as he sees this boy can be a second chance to redeem himself where he failed with Vincent. Great story with great writing and a twist so unseen that it will blow your mind.
Script - 10/10
Amazing dialogue with an amazing story and a movie that you jsut love to watch this script is truly something of a materpiece. It meshes the dialogue nicely and makes the characters mold perfectly as if it was the Mona Lisa come to life.
Characters - 10/10
memorable characters that you wi be remembering for all from the charismatic Malcolm Crowe, the sully Cole Sear, the grief strick Lynn Sear, and the second fiddled Anne Crowe this film has characters that are merely unforgettable and truly grasp the story and make the film on the screen truly remarkable.
Suspense - 10/10
Keeps you guessing, makes you scratch your head, causes you to jump on the edge of your seat and bite your nails and what films of todays high calibur rarely have in thier own films: the concept of making you think and the ability to explore newer horizons.
A no-doubter perfect 100% for The Sixth Sense which is probably one of the greatest films i have ever seen and is one of the best films story wise ever made
