Another case of "Emperor's New Clothes" all over again
I've said that many times that anything, any film that is presented as a "convoluted", "complicated", "complex" story or plot will make the majority of audiences and critics to laud it as something good.
"Split" is another example of this type of behavior/reasoning.
But in reality the whole thing is idiotic, the story has plot holes the size of Texas (e.g. the three girls could easily subdue the child personality), the child molestation subplot is totally unnecessary, the whole DID gets old very fast, and the twist (yes, there is a twist, since this is is a Shyamalan film) only works for those who watched another film released in 2000!
Waste of time and waste of money...
