When I read that M. Night Shyamalan was coming out with another film, I sighed in disgust. The only film I loved by him at that point had been The Sixth Sense. I really liked The Village as well, but I did not really care for his other films.
So naturally when I heard about The Happening, I was hopeful, yet reluctant. But when I went to see this movie last month, I was pleasantly surprised. The Happening is now my favorite film by Night (what his friends call him. 🙂
Mark Wahlberg and John Leguizamo star in this film. There are a few points in the movie where the moral of the story gets a little preachy, but overall, I loved it. 🙂
If you haven’t seen this film yet, you should. It was exciting to watch. It had gore, drama, suspense, etc.
I got that Mark Wahlberg and his wife, played by Zooey Deschanel, were having marital problems, but it was never fully fleshed out. An affair was hinted at, but I wanted to know fo sure. Why mention it if you don’t plan to elaborate on it? Especially since it seemed to add to the drama of their rocky relationship.
Have you already seen this film? If so, what do you think about it?
In any case, I recommend that you see this film. It offers social commentary, and I find that refreshing. Thanks for this film, M. Night Shyamalan. 🙂
