Once again, I feel the need to be honest with all of you — I have absolutely lost interest with the work of M. Night Shyamalan. After the rather dull Lady in the Water, I was no longer interested in being sold one thing, only to have it twist uncontrollably into something else all at once, all in the last moment. It worked with The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, but has run its course since.
That said, I am moving toward his next release The Happening with some trepidation, as it appears to be nothing more than a 90-minute movie about paranoia. And after reading a little blurb over on Defamer earlier today, I realized that it is just that — 90 minutes of people getting hysterical, most likely finding out that they are all already dead in the last moment. It brings about a yawn attack and makes me want to go back to watching clips of Iron Man, a film I’ve already seen twice.
I’m not saying that it won’t turn out to be a good film — every film has a shot — just don’t get your hopes up. Of course, this is just my opinion. I urge you to check out the trailer above and then leave your own opinion in the sound off area below.
The Happening hits theaters on June 13. It stars Mark Wahlberg, Zoey Deschanel and John Leguizamo.
