Meh. I wanted this to be better. Too long, and kinda boring.
Full disclosure, I was the assistant editor on this movie. I guess I had never watched it all the way through.
YIKES. Just yikes. The movie feels like what an alien would make if he had just been given a plot synopsis of American Pie, but didn't understand anything about how human sexuality works.
I actually really dug this. It's not as good as Unbreakable or Split, because it's not as focused and Shyamalan has A LOT to say about the nature of villains and heroes. It also doesn't work as a movie without the other two films preceding it -- I suspect it works better in the marathon format than it does going in cold. It also feels like the movie has been cut to deep to the bone and it sprints in…
