Dear M. Night Shyamalan-adingdong,
I have one question for you… why?
Why would you put out AMAZING films such as Signs, The Sixth Sense, even The Village (or as I call it “the Willage”) and then put out a piece of poo like The Happening?
Yes, The Happening has a decent storyline, but the acting… oh dear God in heaven…
Couldn’t you have either directed Marky Mark* to not act douche-bag-like or cast someone else entirely? And what’s with the lack of a weird twist we are all so accustomed to see…
Some of my favorites twists:
- Bruce Willis is dead?!
- The village is actually modern day!
- Samuel L Jackson is the BAD GUY (ok, we saw that coming…)
So why no twist, bad acting, and less than stellar dialogue (to put it nicely)?
I have my theories…
- You ran out of ideas
- You don’t care anymore (nooooo!!!)
- You have a film contract with some company you don’t like and you are sabotaging your efforts….
So all in all it was a poorly executed, badly acted, made-me-wanna-kill-myself feel good movie…
I want the old M. Night Shyamalan back… I also want my 2 hours and $13.50 back…
