Old ★★½

This movie is not exactly one of the best movies directed by M. Night Shyamalan. For me, this movie is on the same level, if not a notch right below The Happening (2008). I struggled with diving into this movie's story. I was constantly pulled back into reality because I found the camera movements and visual framing very distracting. The camera is constantly panning around or spinning 360-degrees. When the camera is in a fixed position, it is framed with an extreme close-up. Or set up with a reverse angle to partially crop out and avoid the entire faces of the actors. I do like the concept of the movie. It might be something to appear in an episode of The Twilight Zone television show. However, the story feels prolonged and drawn out. It would have served better as a short film.
