The Village

*** / ****
Dir: M. Night Shyamalan
2004 Color English 108 Min
Rated PG-13 for a scene of violence and frightening situations.

I sat through this movie going “where is the twist?? I think it might have dulled the impact of it all on me. However, I really loved the look and feel of the movie. I think it was beautifully shot, edited, and acted. I love William Hurt and Sigourney Weaver along with the rest of the cast – they were all superb. Sure the twist is pretty weenie (honestly nothing will ever match the shock of Sixth Sense, so maybe M should try something different? Spider-Man 3? How about that Logan’s Run movie that is rumored to be stalled now that Bryan Singer is going to re-invent Superman? Just a thought M), but I still suggest seeing it.
