Review – The Happening

Here we have M. Night Shyamalan at a new dawn, making his first R-rated movie.
And it does show. While still a good director, instilling chills with minimal means and forcing one’s imagination to work, this product isn’t as polished as I hoped it to be. Script and dialogue are a bit shaky, with no real depth of character or other deeper meanings. Instead we get more bloody scenes.
And maybe missing most of all, is his signature ending. As a normal scary thriller, it’s okay, just don’t expect quality as high as his first few products.7½.
