The Sixth Sense Reviews
But there is much more to "The Sixth Sense" than the big twist. It features excellent performances by Bruce Willis, Toni Collette, and especially young Haley Joel Osment. I've never seen a child actor give such a marvelous performance. These performances lend themselves well to the superb character development. "The Sixth Sense" is also one of the most creative paranormal films of all time, while also feeling in many ways like a homage to "The Shining".
"The Sixth Sense" is a beautiful, moving film, which is not something you get from your average ghost story. I have zero complaints about this film. It is truly outstanding!
1999 Thriller ''The Sixth Sense'' is one such brilliant work on supernatural theme with wonderful twist is a worth watch for all those thriller and horror movie lovers, M Night Shyamalan showcased his ingenious film making talent with beautiful script that moves on in very simple and silent flow and he sets the mark of his unique movie presentation, Haley Joel Osment has done a tremendous job playing Cole a boy who is able to look at the dead people and believes that they want to accomplish their unfinished task through him, his naturalistic and full fledged performance depicts his acting brilliance, Bruce Wills well known for his action shades in most of the movies is also well presented himself as sympathetic psychologist and loving husband, this image makeover helped Wills to show his hidden acting potentiality.
''The Sixth Sense'' is one best script ever written and proves to be the standard Supernatural thrillers of all time.
Dr. Malcolm Crowe, an esteemed child psychologist, helps a young boy, Cole Sears, who hauntingly reminds him of a previous patient, Vincent, who grew up to become mental and shoot Malcolm. Malcolm, a year later, helps Cole mainly to comprehend Vincent's similar problem. Cole reveals that he sees chilling images of ghosts and Malcolm must help him confront them and a challenging social and at home life suffering from a complex parental divorce. The Sixth Sense is particularly known for its surprisingly twist ending - for the record, I didn't know about the ending unlike many walking into the movie and I'm glad I didn't.
The Sixth Sense is extraordinary. Willis' character is almost comforting himself to the viewer and Osment portrays his character in such an realistic manner at such a young age. The story is compelling and some scenes were literally breathtaking - for example, the scene where Cole first confronts a ghost adds a sense of genuine curiousity and sympathy for the fear of the character. The story has been done a few times before but adds so many nicely done twists that makes it unique from the other paranormal films before it. Some future films like Paranormal Activity tend to feed off of some elements from The Sixth Sense and fail for the most part. The Sixth Sense is an all around fantastic thriller and is the epitome of a chilling film, not a ridiculously overdone horror. The Sixth Sense is particularly significant in its genre and in pop culture in its entirety - it paved the way for a genre that captured many filmgoers and introduced them to an all new kind of fear. Let's try to forget about the other M. Night movies while we're at it...
