A literate and clever movie
14 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

The Village is a clever and literate movie. I know it has received a number of negative reviews. However this is to be expected as Mr Shyamalan has had some popular success and is therefore fair game to "critics".

There is a twist at the end, of course. And if you apply a little thought you can probably work it out. It took my 14 year old son and I 95 minutes to get it! There are some genuine surprises in it, but they are delivered under hand and make you go "ah" rather than "Argh".

It's essentially a love story, with some great performances, especially from Bryce Howard.

Watch it and enjoy.
