I have seen all the Manoj Night Shyamalan movies and I am arranging his films from the worst to the best and I would mostly explain the reason for why I gave them these positions. I also wish that Shyamalan returns to form with his upcoming After Earth(2013)
Here comes the list:
8) THE HAPPENING(2008) -1.5 stars
Well this is clearly the worst film from Shyamalan. It lacks tension and Shyamalan wasn't even trying to do anything fabulous. Once, DiCaprio told that he rose to supreme fame after Titanic's release and he believes that he shall never get that much fame again, but still he tries. Simillarly Shyamalan rose to such fame with Sixth Sense, he tried to out beat that with the films that followed Sixth Sense, but here he doesn't even make a feeble attempt. Mark Wahlberg and Zoey Deschanel give horrible performances.
7)THE LADY IN THE WATER(2006) -2 stars
I have seen this when I was a kid, it was simply a borefest.
6)THE LAST AIRBENDER(2010)- 2.5 stars
Last Airbender was a different path that Shyamalan took, there was no horror in this film. He tried to do fantasy and fell flat. Last Airbender may have good visuals, but poor direction, weak story and ultimately poor acting ruin this film.
5) SIGNS(2002)-3.5 stars
With Signs, Shyamalan brings Aliens into the territory, this film was a different sort of an attempt from the director but the climax was too weak. Yet the film is enjoyable because of a great performance from Mel Gibson.
4) DEVIL(2010) -3.5 stars
Shyamalan wrote and produced this film, it is more like a guilty pleasure for me. The Devil has a good plot and it builds up tension very well. Had they invested more money into this one, it would have been a lot lot better.
3) UNBREAKABLE(2000)- 4 stars
Unbreakable is a good drama from the director, this is not a horror flick, it is a thriller with a surprise ending. This film had been overweighed and underrated because of the grant success of the director's previous film Sixth sense. This film is well directed, well choreographed and exceptionally acted by Willis and Samuel L Jackson.
2) THE VILLAGE(2004) -4 Stars
I feel that The Village is an extremely underrated film, it had the most number of plot twists since Sixth Sense( of course only Shyamalan's films are taken into consideration). The Vllage had an ending that most people did not like and I really don't know why. Bryce Dallas Howard gives a phenomenal performance and Joquain Phoenix is also good. In the village, Shyamalan conveys that some horrors are nothing but con and the film slightly reflects upon our modern degrading societies.
1)THE SIXTH SENSE- 4.5 stars
You could have predicted this too easily. Shyamalan hasn't done a film better than this, but I franlky wish that he should as well. Sixth Sense is the modern horror story with a lot of drama involved especially in the second half. However it is Shyamalan' shocker ending that chills everyone and making you like this film more and more. Without that ending, this film should never have been what it is .
Thank you for reading. You might have your own opinions of his films and I do value your opinion. If you wish to comment, then I am all eyes for your opinions. Thank you once again.
