After being the sole survivor of a horrific train crash, and with nary a scratch, a man is approached by a stranger with a rare bone disease who deduces that he is a real-life super hero. Not as good as the brilliant thriller from 1999 the six sense.

Aside from the Sixth Sense, this is Shyamalan's best work. Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson play interesting opposing characters in a unique and understated take on the super hero mythos. The film doesn't need explosive special effects or spandex costumes to play on themes of good vs evil and the film is terrifying and atmospheric throughout.

Unfortunately at the end, MNS's penchant for the plot twist …

A story of a frail comic book art gallery owner Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) and invincible yet lost security guard named David Dunn (Bruce Willis).

In certain cases, David has survived a car crash and train wreck unscathed. He tests his strength by lifting more than 300 pounds with Joseph’s assistance; he was able to detect a person carrying a gun and is able to detect evil doers by a bump or through touch. After Elijah’s …

I must say im a huge fan of M.Night Shyamalan,no matter what people say about him.he has proven to me that not only does he know hoiw to creat good films,but creat them in ways that intruige you in many ways.now this film may not be his best,but it's certinaly not one of his bad ones.Bruce Willis and Samuael L.Jackson are perfect together in this film.the drama and mystery in this film unfolds like cubic,when you finally finish the cubic,your exited and happy.well that's how I felt with this film.by the time this film ended,I was exited that I saw it and happy by the time that it ended.M.Night may not be no "Wes Craven", "Stephen King" or "Stanley Kubrick" when it comes down to terror or scares of levels like them.but M.Night delivers the goods.he knows emotions,he knows how to break …
