It Took Him Over a Decade but Shyamalan Finally Made Another Good Movie
M. Night Shyamalan has had an interesting career, he went from being the next Spielberg to one of the worst directors of all time and now it looks like maybe just maybe he might be having a comeback because Split was fantastic. This film had a creepy tone that will stick with you long after your done watching it and showcases the talent of the highly underrated actor, James McAvoy. McAvoy gives the best performance of his career as a high strung man, a conservative woman, an innocent child, a terrifying beast, and over a dozen other personalities some of whom we get a brief glance at. Anya Taylor-Joy also did a nice job as playing the smart and brave victim, even though this is without a doubt McAvoy's movie its worth noting that Taylor-Joy did an impressive job here. The other two girls in this movie are your typical screaming victims but it's not really problem because they aren't in the film too much, the focus stays on Taylor-Joy and McAvoy like it should. This movie just gets better as you approach the end, it's important to point out however that towards the end you might be thinking "this makes no sense" but if you stick with it to the very end you will be rewarded for efforts. The ending of this movie may just be one of the greatest twists in cinema because it does something I've never seen a twist ending do, it changed the genre of the movie I was watching. I thought I was watching a thriller but it turns out I was watching something else. If your a fan of Shyamalan, thrillers, or just very interesting movies you'll have a great time watching this. Definitely worth checking out.
