    ★★★

    This is one of those rare cases where I’m totally in awe of a performance but otherwise mostly whelmed by a movie. Both McAvoy and Taylor-Joy give their best but otherwise I feel the film is kind of blah by the end. McAvoy particularly gives one of the better deranged performances of all time. I didn’t hate it though which, for a Shyamalan movie, is an accomplishment in and of itself.

    While this film and its extreme lighting are a feast for the eyes (to say nothing about the amazing sets and locations), everything else about it is kind of an assault on the senses. I'm not immune to the uniqueness of this type of movie but all I'd ever really heard about going in was Argento's use of bright, primary color schemes and otherwise not preparing me for everything else. The soundtrack, while unique, is kind of a constant presence…

    This may be the most morally bankrupt Christmas movie of all time. A) Complain the dad is working despite being the single income for family. B) Then complain that he isn't buying the latest hot toy which equals hate him for not buying your love. C) Forget all that when he bumbles into a situation where he looks like super popular toy and saves the day. Repeat for wife with "hilarious" post credits scene.

    I want everyone involved in making this movie to get a flesh eating bacteria.
