Review: The Village

Every village has an idiot, or so the saying goes.

And apparently in this village that idiot is M. Night Shyamalan, who went from making the great Sixth Sense to the so-so Unbreakable to this piece of cow manure.

The plot is predictable, the story boring. The acting…well, the acting is good, but the movie has characters that this reviewer has no interest in or warmth toward. So it begs the question: Are the actors good at playing characters that are boring or can you tell?

If nothing else this movie answers one question: If a movie about a forest bombs does it make a sound?

The answer is yes.

And that sound is someone asking, “Tell me again why I rented this?”
