Happening, The (2008) 
Not Happening
0.5/4 stars

"It started so suddenly and ended so suddenly."

That quote right there explains everything. Movies that have a story that starts suddenly and end suddenly really have no plot or story depth, which is a shame, because the idea for The Happening could have been presented better than it was. The idea for the story was good, but there was no "there" there.

The characters, as well as the movie, lacked. I didn't know that some of those actors could act that badly. Although, I am reminded of how beautiful Zooey's eyes are during the movie. I loved the emotion that Zooey portrayed during the movie, but I didn't care for the rest of the acting. Overall, the acting was terrible.

Really, the thing I hated was the lack of answers. "Oh, everyone's dying and we have no idea what's going on." At the end of the film, "Oh, no one's dying anymore, but we still have no idea what's going on." Really, the lack of answers bothered me, to the point where the movie was stupid.

Overall, The Happening is really dumb and not worth the watch. I was expecting better from Shyamalan, but I just ended up with disappointment.
