  • Film critics have been asked to say as little as possible about M. Night Shyamalan's new scare film about the perils of messing with Mother Nature. Fair enough. But I will say this: It's not happening. show more

  • It's an entertaining movie, which is half the game, but it's not scary, which it should be. Neither is it something to be taken seriously, though it's intended to be. show more

  • The Happening makes you wonder whether Mr. Shyamalan's own switch may have been flipped. How else to explain his film's befuddling infelicities, insistent banalities, shambling pace and pervasive ineptitude? show more

    The movie was .. okay --- it's got a good side and a stupid side::: GOOD: The story line .. i think the fact that a chemical going through the air and infecting people is a fine story as long as it is transfered into the movie well, which is was in this movie. BAD: the characters/acting ... Acting was terrible! If someone had to play ***************** not have been COOL GUY Mark Wahlberg because in this movie Elliot was basically a Fa@@ot in the movie, a chicken, a scardy cat!! And not only him,, all of the other acting was bad!! OVERALL RATING: Okay.. 68/100 ... 4/10 ...
