Split (2016) – Movie Review

Movie Review –

Yesterday I finally got to take a moment to get out to the theater to see Split (2016) directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Now at first when I saw the trailer I had a strong interest in seeing this film until I saw the name M. Night Shyamalan, the trailer made it look intense and I was really wanting to see it. I only waited to see it due to since the movie the Village also by M. Night Shyamalan there seemed to be a trend that every film with his name on it was completely something different than what was marketed, well finally this one isn’t

Split is a superb film, it’s exactly what the trailer showed and more. The acting, especially by James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy were off the charts; impeccable to say the least. These two actors keep you on your toes the entire film. The story, like all stories by M. Night Shyamalan had more than one meaning so the stylings of his did show in this film too though it didn’t kill it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film, finally a very well-made suspenseful thriller film.
