Enchanting, clever and ridiculously charming.
This review is specifically for the director's cut. Wow. What a film. Endlessly clever, funny, and peculiar. An absolute delight. The practical effects showcased here have to be among the best of all time. And the ending just goes the distance. Loved it.
I went into this film knowing I would hate it. I haven't like a movie by Shyamalan in a long long time and I have never loved a Shyamalan movie. I like Unbreakable fine, but I really disliked Split. Somehow it all changes for me here, with the movie critics seem to absolutely hate. This movie is my bread and butter. As a sequel to both Unbreakable and Split, it remembers every aspect of what made those movies work and builds on it. The characters and characters arcs from those past two films are furthered and (in the case of Split) given life and depth. The story is such a fun philosophical fight that escalates to a daring conclusion that layers the universe and story with even more substance and depth. The icing on the cake is that this movie treats its minor character with just as much importance as our leads--something so few films do. It also pulled off the victim falling for the monster in a way that really worked--which I've never seen done well before this. God, it was just so fun. I felt like a kid again. It's the sort of superhero film that made me fall in love with superhero films in the first place. Like the original two X-men movies, it has so much fun in the real world, populating it with the world of comics and running wild with philosophical word play and jousting. Can't wait to see it again.
Great idea for how to make a movie. I didn't get more than halfway through though...it was lacking a real driving force.
I only got 15 minutes into this movie...
