Movie Review – Split

Movie Review - SplitM. Night Shyamalan is back, and has brought with him what is likely the best movie he’ll ever make. The down side is that it was released so early in the year, and the Oscar committee has a ridiculously short memory. For certain, James McAvoy deserves an Oscar nod for his role, as Kevin Crumb, a man with two dozen personalities.

The acting was superb under the direction of Shyamalan. The pacing was masterfully done; the story grabs you in the first scene – and doesn’t let go until the very last. Speaking of the final scene: there’s a cameo appearance that’s worth the price of admission.

Grade: A

About The Peetimes: In Split we have a lead character with 24 different personalities. Instead of using the name of each personality, I’ve referred to all of them as ‘Barry’, since we see his personality most often. I was able to get only two Peetimes, because the final 30 minutes should not be missed.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Split. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Buy the movie from Amazon.com on DVD or Blu Ray
