If you're willing to follow Shyamalan wherever he goes in his inquiry into how the US got so terrorism-fixated, he leads you into provocative, if uneven, territory.

Es el típico ejemplo de cómo una película puede (o intenta) manipular a su audiencia y hacerle creer que va a ver una cosa cuando en realidad se trata de otra bien diferente.

How I wanted to flee the dreadful 'Village' after its first 20 minutes. What happened? It's the story. It's the direction. It's Shyamalan.

The Village est la première réelle déception provenant de Shyamalan.

September 20, 2004
Definitivamente no será recordada entre lo más selecto de su filmografía, pero si gustan del género y del sudor frío, esta es una obligada.

September 19, 2004
A powerful tale of isolationism, a desire for innocence and hope, and a fear of the unknown.

September 8, 2004
The Village is an enormous disappointment -- not because the ending is so banal, but because Shyamalan has become a director who no longer trusts his talent.

September 5, 2004
The film's biggest disservice is Shyamalan's uneven, confusing script that concludes with a surprise, but a dismal one.

September 4, 2004
the color Red is forbidden because it attracts Those We Do Not Speak Of - except, apparently, for all of the Red herrings Shyamalan has left strewn about

Shyamalan deveria abandonar a carreira de roteirista e dedicar-se apenas à de diretor: seu talento é grande demais para ser desperdiçado em tramas cada vez piores.

A well-meaning, half-hour Twilight Zone episode stretched to the outer limits of a two-hour feature.

Up until somebody gets knifed in the gut, The Village is about as interesting as an episode of UPN's Amish in the City--without the city.

August 19, 2004
Go in with a snide attitude, desperate to see The Sixth Sense director fail, and you'll leave with your prejudices underpinned. Better to embrace the experience and allow Shyamalan to show off his sublime gift for suspense.

In this election year, our cinemas have been overrun by insincere communities headed by dissemblers-in-chief.
August 19, 2004
The Village is both atmospheric and beautifully shot, but the end result is deeply disappointing.

Made with such elegance, atmosphere and wonderfully mannered performances it will nestle deep inside your head, refusing to budge.

August 19, 2004
Another voluptuous piece of tension and Shyamalan's best work since The Sixth Sense
August 17, 2004
Unfortunately, the chills here are poorly thought out, and the plot twists are more predictable than interesting.
August 16, 2004
...doesn't even begin to ignite the protrusive passion that trademark Shyamalan films are known for...a solitary thrill-maker in search of an imaginative spark
