All of M. Night's movies are hit or miss. This is an amazing hit. A must see for a suspense fans.
The movie was amazing but I do advise that if you plan to see this go and watch the movie Unbreakable first! Also, once the movie ends don't just get up and leave, wait for it...
Split reworks some of the themes Mr. Shyamalan developed in the 2000 ?Unbreakable? ? weakness and strength, unstoppable power, a sense of emergent destiny. The film contends that people are purified by suffering. Having suffered through the screening, I?m still waiting for my purer self to kick in.
A remarkably weird and wonderful exercise in psychological terror featuring a virtuoso performance by Scottish actor James McAvoy.
The director ties themes together at the end with more finesse than usual, letting a couple of meaningful visuals speak for themselves where he might have thrown in a line or two of explanatory dialogue. And as for that final twist, it's a doozy.
