M. Knight Shyamalan's latest film. Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of his work. His last good film was signs. Every film he's made since then has been absolute trash in my opinion. Granted I still haven't seen The Visit, but after After Earth, I kinda just gave up on Shyamalan.
I had heard about this movie, but I didn't really know what it was about. I don't even recall ever even seeing a trailer for it. All I knew was it was made by Shyamalan, and that was enough for me to initially disregard it. But a few friends of mine wanted to see it, so I went along.
I went in completely blind, with no expectations, or preset ideas of what the movie might even be about. And wow was I blown away. This movie is a masterpiece among thrillers. This is Shyamalan's comeback.
The movie centers around 3 girls who are abducted by a man named Kevin, with Split Personality Disorder. Along the way the girls will interact with many of Kevin's different, distinct, and unique personalities.
The movie just does an excellent job at creating a sense of dread. It has a strong lead cast in Anya Taylor-Joe and James McAvoy. Joe gives an excellent performance as Casey. Our main character. But the real standout here is James McAvoy as Kevin. He does an amazing job at each personality. And as I said before, each personality is different, distinct, and unique. And each one really feels as if they are different characters. The rest of the cast does a decent job with their roles, but nothing incredibly special. As I said, McAvoy and Joe are the standouts here, and give the best and most memorable performances.
Overall there really aren't any flaws or problems I have with this movie. It was amazing, and I can't wait to see it again. I give Split a 10/10
