The Happening

Recommended Posts

I thought the trailer was shit, so I'm not seeing it on that principle.

I don't want to see a director wanking off to his own film for a trailer, thank you.

Haven't been to see this.

I've heard it's terrible.

Not seen one positive review yet.

Yup. Wouldn't surprise me if lovers_spit was in fact M. Knight Shamalyn (sp) trying to drum up support for his film.

Okay...

Well maybe not best to assume every critic is right. It is just one persons opinion.

I've never particularily liked his (M.Night.Shyamalan) movies but I really enjoyed it. I went to see it with family and I had my reservations but it was pretty enjoyable.

Most people I know that have seen it quite liked it.

I was a fan of all his previous movies, until I saw this.

Terrible plot, absymal acting, dull ending- I thought the whole thing was building up to something really really good, but it wasn't. At all.

In theory this could have been a good film- fuck knows what's happened to the man who gave us movies as great as the Sixth Sense and Signs. I've bought Lady in the Water to compare to this, but I'm scared to watch it in case it ends up being as shite as this.

So to round up, I thought it was gash.

The Village had the worst "twist" ever.

I'm with you there. I just assumed it was an old fashioned commune in a modern day environment anyway.

When I realised this was supposed to be the twist I just thought...... Shiiiiiiiiiiiite.

Spoilers! Although you are actually doing people a favour by letting people know the ending so they don't have to watch it.

utter garbage.

the idea had so much potential...and they went nowhere with it.

There was no twist...the thing responsible for the suicides ended up being the second thing suggested, very early into the film.

the acting was embarrasing to watch.

poo

A friend of mine does the cinema reviews for Original 106, and she really didn't like it -

Spontaneous Production: Whatever Happened to The Happening?

Great review/rant.

I've never liked his films. Unbreakable was alright, but everything else is pretty dire. He needs to cut out this D.I.Y. bullshit and hire a scriptwriter.
