McAvoy accomplishes the impossible while providing depth and personality to each character from the mannerisms to the specific dialect of each different identity. His performance steals the show and provides some laughs, but also fear...
November 5, 2018
In addition to being a platform for James McAvoy to display his considerable range in truly zany fashion, Split represents the once fallen M. Night Shyamalan solidifying his place as the king of twists in this unsettling and campy delight.

Split is not only an edge of your seat film, but it is also a film that shows the many interesting facets of the human brain. If nothing else this film is worth seeing just to watch James McAvoy playing numerous characters.

If you have even the slightest fond memories of [Shyamalan's] early work ... you owe it to yourself to watch Split.

I guess it's only fitting that Shyamalan's cameo is credited as "Jai, Hooters lover."

Shyamalan is at the top of his directing game, but he still hasn't learned to fine-tune his writing.

A solid three-star movie, Split is well worth a look, if only to see what a modern Thomasin looks like.

Smart and thoroughly thrilling with amazing performances from Taylor-Joy and McAvoy, "Split" is M. Night Shyamalan's redefined welcomed return to the thriller genre

[McAvoy] had taken time with each and every character he portrayed on-screen. You could see that inner life, behind his eyes and in the mannerisms specific to each character.

[Shyamalan] has a good understanding of where to put the camera, and tell the story he wants to tell...I have to give it to him, he knows how to create tension.
August 21, 2018
James McAvoy does an outstanding job of playing Kevin, a man who manifests unique physical attributes for each of his 24 personalities.
June 22, 2018
There are moments of true artistry in "Split." But it's uncomfortable to watch because then it falls apart and makes no sense...So sparing the obvious pun, I'm on both sides of the fence on this one.
May 8, 2018
Still, I wish I could've seen a film of this subject matter taken a bit more seriously. It's not the '80s anymore. Movies should be smarter than this.

Supported largely by James McAvoy's extraordinary talent who, with modulations of voice, gestures and mannerisms, creates various characters that fall in perfect harmony with the director's purpose. [Full review in Spanish]

The way that Shyamalan and Gioulakis emphasize close-ups and medium shots make for a taut, clean forcefulness that...give Split a leaner, hipper feel very different from the increasingly aestheticized studio polish of Shyamalan's earlier work.
February 21, 2018
Split possesses a dark sexual undercurrent that's all the more unnerving because it stays beneath the surface.
January 18, 2018
I didn't think it was possible. I didn't think he could do it. but M Night Shyamalan is back. M Night Shyamalan has made a good movie.
January 16, 2018
A solid thriller right up until the end, when the director decides to play to his fans and his own indulgences, rather than tying things up for viewers in a more satisfying way.

Without a doubt McAvoy's performance is the highlight... [Full review in Spanish]
