Re: What does seeing a positive or negative score on a Shyamalan movie even mean at this point?
I guess that's sort of a point. But all Split had going for it was the McAvoy performance. The teenage girl's backstory was worthlessly goofy (I LOL'd at the pedophile guy pretending to act like an animal in the woods), the support characters were worthless, the "scary parts" weren't scary, the special effects were low budget and boring, the mythology behind what was wrong with McAvoy was boring, and how much time did he actually have to spend with that psychologist?
But, you have sort of a point. I'm just sort of amused that Shyamalan has chosen this route to doing what is clearly some sort of dream project for him, a sequel to Unbreakable (which he intended as some sort of deeply personal masterpiece, if his own words on the subject are to be believed).
