Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director:  M. Night Shyamalan
Cast: James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy and Betty Buckley
 
After delivering duds for the last couple of times; M. Night Shyamalan fans, let me tell you that 'tis the time to rejoice as the director is back with a classic, stylish film that is bound to make you feel nostalgic for, these are the type of thrillers that he was best known for.
And while the storyline may not have great substance to it; the expert use of camera movements and angles, propels Split to a point that this psychological thriller is worth it all.
 
Talking about the movie; what starts off as a simple ride for three friends towards a birthday party; is indeed the start of a nightmare as they are kidnapped by a man (James McAvoy) with 24 different personalities.
What follows is a twisting tale of survival, as they try to sieve through the personalities which might help them get away, while also keeping themselves alive from the catastrophic ones. The charisma that M. Night Shyamalan brings forth in the entire ordeal, and the personality changes that James McAvoy brings forth; is really what pushes the movie to a pedestal.
 
The only thing what I feel, which doesn't work in the movie's favour is the fact that it can get a tad bit too predictable at times. While my fellow movie goers had a split opinion about Split, I thoroughly enjoyed it for, which I give the movie 4 Shors on 5.
 
Being a thriller, I really don't want to ruin the movie for you guys by delving into the finer details and would also advise to avoid reading any reviews for, a noteworthy return of M. Night Shyamalan and an outstanding performance by James McAvoy, surely deserves a watch. Cheers!
4 Shors on 5.
