Shyamalan created a film to remember with Split. In today's cinematic world of sub-par horror films and predictable thrillers, this film serves as a breath of fresh air
December 27, 2017
Cautiously recommended.

It's nevertheless impossible to deny that Split, though rarely engrossing, remains quite watchable throughout.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 27, 2017
Still, [James] McAvoy, with shaved head and predatory grin, approaches his perverse task with obvious relish, and Shyamalan whips up plenty of tension -- even in the face of some predictable twists and turns.

Shyamalan hasn't goosed a crowd this successfully since Signs. As someone who'd written him off, it's fun to have been wrong.
December 19, 2017
M. Night Shyamalan is one of the most consistently interesting auteurs in contemporary American cinema. Split is further evidence.
December 18, 2017
McAvoy likely had a blast playing these disparate characters and I'd watch his campy one-man show anytime, but his hard work can't save this mess.
December 14, 2017
Shyamalan concocts a clever premise and delivers one of the most suspenseful thrillers this decade bolstered by an outstanding turn by McAvoy.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
December 4, 2017
The horror maestro directs McAvoy to a completely bonkers performance full of scares and laughs (but most of all, terrific acting, made even more apparent during a scene that sees just about all 23 identities fighting for control at once)
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 1, 2017
Split may not be to everyone's taste, but the story, craftsmanship, and excellent performances will haunt you for quite a while. As will some beastly bits.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
November 19, 2017
Split [is] a genre picture that's fascinating, audacious and just kooky enough to be a lot of fun.
November 16, 2017
Regardless of all the film's obvious plot problems, there are some excellent performances in this film, and the story is compelling, especially the story about Casey's background, and her strange affinity to Crumb's personality disorder.

This is Shyamalan laughing at his own joke: the idea that people who don't have to will watch this.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 3, 2017
If Shyamalan continues to bring his A-game to the big screen, he's more than welcome to jump on the franchise bandwagon.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 23, 2017
A smart thriller that is more interested in provocative ideas than it is in simply scaring the audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
October 17, 2017
McAvoy has an absolute ball, Betty Buckley is spot-on as his over-dedicated psychiatrist and Morgan star Anya Taylor-Joy definitely catches the eye as the most resourceful of the three girls.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 13, 2017
Split is a solid return to form for M. Night Shyamalan, but it's really James McAvoy's movie. It's worth seeing for McAvoy alone.
September 17, 2017
The pleasures of Split are ultimately just those of an enormously satisfying B-movie, and God bless it.

"Split" takes a step in this direction by positing that "mental sickness" might not always be an actual illness - but then takes two steps back by exploiting moviegoers' fears that people with unusual mental conditions can be unpredictably violent.

June 16, 2017
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to a M. Night. Shyamalan movie - last year's "The Visit" had hinted at a return to his "The Sixth Sense" glory days - along comes this mess.
