The Happening

The Happening ★★★

I totally get (and agree with) the environmental statement M. Night is is trying to convey with this film, but a movie like this comes with an expectation to be on par with his earlier work and The Happening falls well short. While I'm fine with the overall story, Shyamalan does a sloppy job of weaving his ideas into a coherent message and the dialog is so pedestrian that it's like he recruited George Lucas to write it. Truth be told, I am not a Happening hater and always enjoy my viewings of this movie despite the numerous and obvious flaws it may have.
