Some of this film was shot in Levittown, Pennsylvania at a Jacobson logistics warehouse site. (M. Night Shyamalan has committed to using films sites in PA.) The set, built on the warehouse site, includes an apartment complex and a half city block of row houses. Occasional footage was shot inside the overflow area of the warehouse. Most of the filming was completed after Jacobson work hours. See more »
During a couple scenes, a hefty wind sound effect plays as the pool and the surrounding trees and bushes are shown. Neither the bushes nor the trees are blown by the wind. See more »
Once, man and those in the water were linked. They inspired us. They spoke of the future. Man listened and it became real. But man does not listen very well. Man's need to own everything led him deeper into land. The magic world of the ones that lived in the ocean... and the world of men... separated. Through the centuries, their world and all the inhabitants of it... stopped trying. The world of man became more violent. War upon war played out, as there were no guides to listen to...

Only someone suffering from a fully-fledged Narcissistic Personality Disorder could have made this movie
Utterly incoherent, pretentious codswallop that would make Buneul's Discreet Charm of the Bourgeousie an exercise in realism in comparison. Why this deranged man (M Night Shamalama) didn't follow his family's advice and become a doctor would be a far better topic of tragic discussion than spending another nano-second trying to analyze why he has so much contempt for his audience. What is evident to me is the fact that the inflated audience scores on IMDb and metacritic for this waste of celluloid could only be the result of M Night sitting in front of his lap top, frothing from the mouth, while repeatedly registering under different names to give his own movie one score of 10 after another. Have you noticed how most of the people who gave the movie 10 happen to ONLY have reviewed one movie...this one?!
