Mediocre
7 September 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Though I think Leonard was a little harsh, "The Split" still isn't a very good movie. The characters are paper-thin, scenes seem to be missing, and the movie is generally predictable. And there are some unbelievable scenes, like when Jim Brown's character "tests" the potential recruits. The lame climax you've seen in countless other movies.

On the positive side, there is quite a bit of A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E here, which only something from this time period could pull off. There's a great scene when Borgnine and Brown slug it out. And the Quincy Jones soundtrack is great. I suspect the music is behind the reason why this has never been released on video.
