sense is not engaging till the peak moment

Supernatural thrillers are very common nowadays. Having much belief in spirits or not this movie is one of those rare thrillers which can slightly frighten. Some believe and some do not believe in spirits and me being the second case I cannot speak anything logical about script. Directed by Night Shyamalan and distributed by Spy Glass is this supernatural thriller casted by Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment and co.
Spirits have unfulfilled wishes and they roam about to get the job done. Here the case is all about a boy Cole (Osment) who has the secret untold to anyone. He can see dead people and speak with them. Child Psychologist Malcolm (Willis) helps Cole solve the problem and in fact try to bury his own problems with his wife (Olivia Williams). There are some spirits waiting for help a...

"The Sixth Sense" by Yojimbo

A child psychologist who is shot by a former patient he failed to help becomes obsessed with the case of a small boy who is exhibiting similar symptoms. Although M. Night Shyamalan's career has taken a serious dump since his halcyon days, The Sixth Sense is the film he will always be remembered for. A mix of supernatural thriller and wish fulfilment fantasy, it delivers both spine tingling chills and pushes all the right emotional buttons when presenting this sensitively told tale of a small boy who is living in constant fear of the dead who seem to be stalking him. Although the famous twist in the tale is the biggest talking point, it's amazing how well the story stands up even when you know that it's coming; you find yourself admiring the subtlety and cleverness of the (mis)direction an...

Seemingly predictable, with unpredictable end

The Sixth Sense, starring Haley Joel Osment and Bruce Willis, is a thriller that keeps the viewer guessing until the very end of the movie. The disturbing beginning shows Bruce Willis, a child psychiatrist, shot by a former patient. The screen immediately goes black, and resumes showing Willis taking notes on a peculiar young boy. Willis shadows young Osment in order to help this terrified boy. At first, Willis could not quite figure out what was wrong with this boy, but as they spend more time together, the truth begins to come out of shy Osment. He admits that he sees dead people everywhere and Willis suggest a solution to the problem. Instead of being scared, Willis advises that he should help these troubled people. In doing so, the story ends by revealing that Willis was ...

I SEE this movie @ #36.

I can easily say that "The Sixth Sense" is an instant classic because it really has a very unique story-telling and approaches the ghost-human beings conflict in an original way. Dr. Malcolm (Bruce Willis) is trying to help a young kid, Cole (Haley Joel Osment) with his psychological problems and, at the same, trying to fix his relationship with his wife who has become quite distant lately. The story mostly revolves around Cole who claims to see dead people. But it is also about Dr. Malcolm who helps Cole to cope with his unusual gift. And in return, he learns something important about himself. The famous twist at the end is quite shocking but there are some clues during the movie which are intelligently concealed. The Sixth Sense is a GREAT movie and a must-watch for all audiences. It ha...

A bit slow, but the twist at the end is a must see

"Dr. Malcolm Crowe" (Bruce Willis), a psychatrist shot months ago by a former patient who broke into his house, is coming to the aid of a disturbed child (Haley Joel Osment). His case is not unique at first, but "Dr. Crowe" slowly brings out what has been eating at the kid -- the kid has the ability to talk with people who died, but have not crossed over. In layman's terms, the young boy is a psychic.

"Dr. Crowe" begins to look at the case of the man who shot him months ago, and discovers some similarities with his current. Now, the psychiatrist must become a spirit guide until the young boy is comfortable with his situation. However, the boy helps him out with an unusual problem he has.

First of all, do you know how hard it is to write a synopsis without giving any clues to a mov...

Real Sci Fi plot twists see dead people

People beat the crap out of this film. They should. They should rewind it, watch it, rewind it, watch it. Look for every clue. The truth is, Shyamalan did exactly what "good" filmmakers should do: be true to the story line, characters, and general plot basis. I watched this film so many times I couldn't remember. And each time, I could not catch one glimpse of anything. The first thought, "Man, he's good." I because instantly hook. Although I appreciate a good plot twist and the characters were very real and true-to-life, I enjoyed even more of the scaled-down, less flashy films that followed (which I extremely enjoyed the foreign film aspects of "The Happening". Good story line, of course. Bad acting, not really. Shylaman appearance, indeed. Great film overall and I gave it ...

Review - The Sixth Sense (1999)

Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis), a child psychologist, didn’t know what he was getting into when he became Cole Sear’s (Haley Joel Osment) doctor. His investigation in both of their lives is seen in “The Sixth Sense.”

Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has become a staple of mysterious horror and science fiction films ever since this one. He’s never really been a good writer, but he’s a brilliant director who can get his poor scripts to work on camera. “The Sixth Sense” is the strongest example of this in his filmography.

Willis and Osment both give stellar performances, even though their source material is ridiculous. The story is great and original, but the dialogue and certain elements of the storytelling are just terrible. I’m sure there are a lot of people that would disagree ...
