M. Night Shyamalan's best movie in over a decade. Split is a chilling and entertaining thriller for genres fans and casual audiences. It's got one of James McAvoy's best performances as the cheerfully demented villain Kevin who has 23 different personalities that are some of the most deranged characters you've ever seen. The three actresses who play his terrified captives were good in their roles. The mood is often unsettling but sometimes interrupted by humor. The music really makes it more effectively scary. The best part is the ending cliffhanger. It makes it so much more interesting than it already is to begin with.

Does Split define M. Night Shyamalan's return to great cinema? YES!!!! Split was an incredible experience that should not be missed this year. I absolutely loved this film! Beautifully directed, unforgettable performance by James McAvoy, and brutally satisfying tension throughout. Please support this new movie, as it is the best M. Night movie I have seen since The Sixth Sense. You will not be let down!

Split - Review

"The broken are the more evolved"

"Split" isn't just a return to form from Shamalamadingdong, but an emotionally powerhouse of a thriller. Anyone who watched the trailer and think they have an idea of what it's gonna be, think again. Putting forward this guys history in films; this surprised the heck out of me.

The cinematography was excellent, same guy who did "It Follows" which was pretty neat. The film had the right balance of tone with comedy and horrific. One minute you're laughing at the intentional comedic scenes, but quickly change when you start to over think.

James McAvoy is absolutely fantastic in this movie. Every personality has a unique purpose to them and McAvoy makes the whole thing believable. Especially when he plays a little boy na...

Personality Crisis

I said this before in my short review of The Visit from 2015 - I had pretty much written off M. Night Shyamalan after his declining efforts after The Village - ending with the one-two crapfest that was The Last Airbender and After Earth. But The Visit lifted my hopes that maybe Shyamalan was getting back to his roots - back in the game, so to speak and after Split I'm sold that he has righted the ship and is sailing once again towards victory.

Split works for two main reasons: one, James McAvoy is supremely cast as the main character(s) - he plays eight different personalities (some only briefly, but even so) and he manages to give each one a great spin. You have Dennis, the strong enforcer with OCD, Patricia - a very Norman Bates/Mother like personality, Barry, a fashion designer and...
