First Shyamalan movie I've seen where he doesn't ruin the plot himself. Too bad the plot twist can be found on every site on the Internet, but even with that knowlegde a very decent film.
I somehow managed to avoid the big twist ending even 18 years after its release. And boy, am I glad I did.
I've thought a lot about whether or not it relies on its superb ending to be great. And I think it might.
But does it matter? I mean, there are some really scary moments and some nice dramatic turns in its own right, but the ending is all people think about.
This might be a good thing. You're able to look at all the plants and payoffs and look at all the clues that lead up to the big reveal.
And Haley Joel Osment has one of the best child performances ever. Period.
