Hmmm...what to say...

I don't want to say anything to give the plot away.

Let's just say that I was disappointed at how predictable this one was. I pretty much saw where this was going maybe a third to halfway through it.

I generally like M. Night Shamalyan's stuff, but this was...not his best work. He really dragged us through this one to the point where I was getting really annoyed that things weren't happening fast enough because I had a good idea of where the story was going.

This movie seems to be completely driven by it's hype and movie trailers. I'm sorry to say, after seeing it once, I don't need to see it again to figure anything out.

Cheap scares are also relatively easy to predict.

Maybe I'm wrong and full of $hit. If I am, please let me know and explain your stance. Perhaps I'm the one that just doesn't understand.

So as I said before, it's worth seeing once. After that, the mystique is over.
