how well the film works really depends on how you react to McAvoy's performance. He puts 120% percent into playing the role and is a blast to watch because of that. I could definitely see some people thinking it's bad because of how ridiculous the character is, but it's far more on the "silly fun" side of ridiculous rather than the "boring stupid" side. So I had a pretty great time.
The teen girl actors aren't all that great but they're not really the focus of the movie. So that wasn't really a significant detraction.
The camerawork is quite nice. Shyamalan got the guy who worked on It Follows to help out and it shows. Lots of eerie creeping movement and stuff.
It's not scary at all though, don't go in expecting that. But as a zany thriller it's a good time.
There also isn't a bullshit forced twist for a change. The plot unfolds with actual character development and foreshadowing, stuff we all thought M Night forgot how to do years ago.
