Split Movie Reviews

Split Story:
While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart. .

Speaking of which – M. Night Shyamalan has suffered from an odd predicament; peaking early in his career with landmark films like ‘The Sixth Sense’, & ‘Unbreakable’, then fumbling the proverbial ball with entries like ‘The Village’. It’s commendable then, that the writer – director takes a calculated risk with ‘Split’, that pays off largely due to memorable performances inspired by a gripping, original story penned by himself that, surprisingly has a lot more to offer beyond this outing. If Shyamalan continues to bring his A-game to the big screen, he’s more than welcome to jump on the franchise bandwagon.

Without giving away the details, the ending of the film is like a character in itself. The consequences of what happens before the frame cuts to black are tremendous and you’ll be left with the feeling that you got a lot more than you expected. However you interpret the ending, it bodes well for whatever Shyamalan is doing next. There are already tons of discussions on the finale on forums, so jump right in after you see the film.

Ratings:4.5/5 Review By:Rohan Site:Hindustan Times
After almost a dozen films with a dozen twist endings, Shyamalan has done something incredible with this one. It’s his best one since his best one, The Sixth Sense – and it isn’t even a ‘twist ending’ in the traditional sense. At this point, understandably, we’re all expecting a Shyamalan movie to end with a surprise, so now, the challenge is not to merely deliver on those expectations but to subvert them. It is a challenge that only he could have overcome.
