The Village Reviews
A stellar cast & crew which might have garnered more awards with this film.
Like all of Shyamalan's movies, it is very slow burn.
The first half is very good, until the first twist, which ruins the rest of the movie and would have been much more effective later on in the movie.
This was his weakest movie, at the time of it's release.
Have to be very very careful not to give away any spoilers. Don't don't give away the ending. I mean it is so so so head-spinning that no one wants to be the first party pooper.
I say this is the best way to counter-attack piracy. Draws the audience back into the theatres and guarantee them that they will be given a big secret to keep from the rest of the town.
All I can say are loopholes are inevitable and the story a little far-fetched but I have to take my hat off M. Night Shyamalan. He is comparable to Alfred Hitchcock and Wes Craven. Maestros of suspense.
Yup, no more comments from me. And I think film critics should be as brief too. With audience getting smarter, they cannot afford to say too much.
Expected Rating: B+
