Don’t Waste Your Time


I watched The Happening last night.

I enjoyed every M. Night Shyamalan movie I had ever seen (although I didn’t see the critically maligned Lady in the Water), so I was expecting a good movie, but boy, was I disappointed.

The plot was lacking, the dialogue was terrible, the acting was suspect—it was bad all around.

Don’t spend the $8 to see it in theaters.

Don’t spend the $3 to rent it when it comes out on DVD.

Don’t waste a spot on your Netflix cue for it.

In fact, if you’re walking on the street six months from now and happen to see a copy of The Happening lying on the ground, don’t even bother to pick it up.

It really was that bad.

I loved The Sixth Sense, liked Unbreakable, and tolerated Signs and The Village.

Shyamalan's just on a steady decline into a pit of despair.

Angela,

I never saw Lady in the Water, but I loved The Sixth Sense, Signs and The Village, and liked Unbreakable pretty well too, though not as much as the others.

This one was really bad though.

Eddie,

I know it sounds harsh, but really, it was terrible.
