Not bad... not exactly good.
11 October 2014 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

First off, I have never until now seen a Shyamalan movie, but I'm aware of his reputation. I thought I'd start with his first film.

I'm kind of surprised that it wasn't horrible. Sure, narrative-wise it's mess and the acting/dialogue is off. But there are genuine good, sometimes even great moments.

For example, the parts where Dev (Shyamalan) is finding his Indian heritage are wonderful (for the most part). There's also a riot scene towards the end that's actually pretty exciting. Both the intro and ending are fairly solid. There's nice cinematography and music as well.

Yet all of these good parts are kind of voided by the bad. The whole thing is kind of awkward and meandering. Jokes fall flat, and scenes don't have the impact they should (a lot of the beats are off). There was even a random football scene out of absolutely nowhere. I wonder if Tommy Wiseau was taking notes...

I'd really only recommend this to hardcore Shyamalan buffs, and it would be much better if Shyamalan would release it in something better than potato VHS quality. Perhaps they could release it as an easter egg on a Sixth Sense Blu-ray... Alas, he seems to be completely embarrassed by this movie. Now that his reputation is in the trash, perhaps he's more open to a proper release.
