116 Minutes, Drama, Horror
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Haley Lu Richardson, Jessica Sula
Damn horror flicks in February! Two hours of intense, suspense, and cannibalism! Ok, it's not that bad and in fact "Split" fails to mustard the 75% of Rotten Maters reviewers. Were they watching the same flick as me? What better way to kidnap three cute girls in a car but to spray them with sleepy spray, woohoo! The fact is the audience already knows what happens before it happens. A crazy dude with multiple personalities, 23 to be exact, attempts to inflict pain and misery to the teenagers. Hell, anyone could escape from this bozo and at any time during this flick. Of course, Shyamalan can't allow this because the flick would be over in 10 minutes. Anyway you know the plot....The psycho, played by James McAvoy, kills two of the girls, his therapist (who he sees throughout the flick), and tries to kill Casey, played by Anya Taylor-Joy. She pops him twice with a shotgun, she escapes, he survives and we must wait for "Split 2" in the very near future. Save us the trouble Shyamalan and don't bother!
