Split – Interesting, but Not All That

I’m too tired and slightly buzzed to get into a long ass discussion of the movie Split, but we were sold on the hype and reviews and went to see it today.   It was definitely compelling and suspenseful, but the twist waiting for you at the end…..SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS AHEAD!….

……have pretty much nothing to do with the movie you’ve just seen as you realize the movie has been the origin story of a new villain in M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable possible movie series.  Don’t get me wrong, that was a crazy and out-of-left-field twist, but there was so much in the movie itself that kind of seemed unresolved?  Or was like, what just happened?  Will give props to James McAvoy for playing a very troubled man with multiple personalities and the story was interesting, but when all was said and done, it left the viewer wanting a bit more there.

Alright, time for the post to end.
