This clash of aims is hard to accept but there is still plenty to enjoy as well as plenty of jumps, just a shame that the film's final quarter can't live up to the expectation the plot had created.
The flashbacks don't totally work and Shyamalan's traditional twist is not as impacting as he probably planned it to be. Gibson plays it too tight and reverently all the way, it's hard to get with his character considering how straight he plays it.
Then on the other side of the coin Phoenix is better because he is a little looser and more comic, but this doesn't sit well with the `on edge' feel that Shyamalan has given almost all of his scenes.
This is OK but I felt I needed to see more of what was going on elsewhere as the small scale action couldn't compete with the bigger picture.
The film has plenty of jumps but suffers from being overly deliberate and plodding for the majority.
When friends got it out on DVD I was glad of the chance to see it, but wary that it may not have too much to offer.
I was surprised that I enjoyed it, but I could also see why so many people had major problems with it.
