Ain’t Happening June 18, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in TV/Movies.
On Saturday night, we went to see The Happening. I’ve enjoyed other M. Night Shyamalan movies like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and even The Village (up until the ending). What’s not to like about an R-rated Shyamalan movie?! Pretty much everything.
I’m not even going to try to give a blow-by-blow on the plot. You can read the bad reviews here. It had potential to be a great movie, but in the end it just fizzled. It’s like Shyamalan just got bored and said, “Hey guys, let’s just end it here.” And what scored that R-rating? Just some gore which made the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre actually seem believable.
The movie ended up being an environmental issues film with the moral of the story being this:
Keep treating the planet the way that you do and eventually she’s going to turn on you.
