Split, movie review

I’m not a fan of every M. Night Shyamalan movie, I doubt anyone is, but this is one of the better ones. The plot does move a bit slow and go for the suspenseful feel, but there is a constant twist of unpredictability that keeps the audience engaged. As with any horror type movie, there are moments where the characters on the screen are making mistakes that you, the audience, know will lead to disaster. I reminded myself that the women kidnapped were teenagers, so their mistakes are understandable because they are kids who don’t know any better.

Overall the film is highly original, and most of the plot twists are hard to see coming, minus the failed attempts the girls make at trying to escape. The end of the film has a scene that might confuse some if you aren’t familiar with M. Night Shyamalan‘s past works. Bruce Willis makes an appearance and there is a reference to a movie he starred in previously, “Unbreakable,” which was also done by M. Night Shyamalan. This might make some think there is a sequel in the works, but in reality I think it means “Split” was the sequel.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
