The Village (2004)
Unexpected Results (contains major spoilers)
As the title says, The Village has unexpected results - it's one of those movies where you either hate it or you love it. I personally love it. The movie brings twists and surprises which make your mind wonder about certain realities... it makes you think. If you are looking for a horror movie, this is not your choice. Although the movie contains scary scenes and situations, the ending is not one of a horror movie. The actors bring the movie to life with their amazing performances. At the end of the story, we discover the creatures are not real - they are a means of keeping the community away from worldy things. The village is actually living in a hostile forest, in present time. When it's discovered that the murders and occurrences the elders first talk about in the beginning of the movie are actually everyday things that happen in the world (rape, suicide, murder), we become comfortable realizing creatures had nothing to do with the fatalities - but how can we become comfortable with those things? They aren't right, any way you look at them. In a way, WE are the creatures. We take life at others' expense without a second thought. The movie holds a strong theme - if you get too comfortable with things that are wrong, things that are wrong will become right, and there will be no fine line between right and wrong. This may sound confusing, but it's just my take on the movie.
If you get a chance, at least listen the the soundtrack - it holds the same theme as the movie. All in all? 4.5/5 stars.
