Product Description

Child psychologist Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) is shot by a former patient, who then kills himself. Feeling responsible for the death, Crowe sees a chance to assuage his guilt by helping the troubled young Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment), who claims to be haunted by ghosts. As the bond between the doctor and his charge grows, Crowe becomes more and more estranged from his wife, who he suspects of having an affair. This psychological drama features one of Hollywood's most celebrated twist endings.


"I see dead people," whispers little Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment), scared to affirm what is to him now a daily occurrence. This peaked nine-year old, already hypersensitive to begin with, is now being haunted by seemingly malevolent spirits. Child psychologist Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) is trying to find out what's triggering Cole's visions, but what appears to be a psychological manifestation turns out to be frighteningly real. It might be enough to scare off a lesser man, but for Malcolm it's personal--several months before, he was accosted and shot by an unhinged patient, who then turned the gun on himself. Since then, Malcolm has been in turmoil--he and his wife (Olivia Williams) are barely speaking, and his life has taken an aimless turn. Having failed his loved ones and himself, he's not about to give up on Cole.

The Sixth Sense, M Night Shyamalan's third feature, sets itself up as a thriller, poised on the brink of delivering monstrous scares, but gradually evolves into more of a psychological drama with supernatural undertones. Many critics faulted the film for being mawkish and New Age-y, but no matter how you slice it, this is one mightily effective piece of filmmaking. The bare bones of the story are basic enough, but the moody atmosphere created by Shyamalan and cinematographer Tak Fujimoto made this one of the creepiest pictures of 1999, forsaking excessive gore for a sinisterly simple feeling of chilly otherworldliness. Willis is in his strong, silent type mode here, and gives the film wholly over to Osment, whose crumpled face and big eyes convey a child too wise for his years; his scenes with his mother (Toni Collette) are small, heartbreaking marvels. And even if you figure out the film's surprise ending, it packs an amazingly emotional wallop when it comes, and will have you racing to watch the movie again with a new perspective. You may be able to shake off the sentimentality of The Sixth Sense, but its craftsmanship and atmosphere will stay with you for days. --Mark Englehart

Having just finished watching the movie I feel compelled to write this review, a meagre attempt to give something back to the makers of the movie. This is one of the hardest reviews i've ever tried to write, words do not seem capable of conveying the ingenuity and beauty of the Sixth Sense. I'm not going to talk about the plot, to analyse it would give away too much, so this leaves only my feelings about the film to convince you.

I still feel somewhat shell shocked by its intelligence. I know such words are not those one would normally associate with a film of its kind but that's what makes the Sixth Sense different. The plot is what binds it to the supernatural/suspense genre, but the actual story makes it so much more. Take Poltergiest, Ghost and Good Will Hunting, these are three very different films, each a classic in their own right. If you were to mix these you might end up with something close to the Sixth Sense: an original supernatural thriller, with excellent character development and relationships which is not too big to have an element of romance. Brilliant displays by Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment gives the film its edge.

Technically the Dvd is also faultless. Picture and sound quality are excellent and the special features have thoughtfully been put together.

I can offer you no more than my assurance that this is a film that I believe will appeal to all. It is an emotional journey, which will leave a lump in the throat and a chill in the spine of even the most hardened of persons... if not, check your pulse!

The Sixth Sense is an absolute gem, it is one of those challenging films that will stick in your mind and have you thinking about it for weeks after watching it. The plot is downright genuis, it`s so cleverly and precisely orchestrated that the resulting twist will just leave your jaw rightfully on the floor! The twist is so shocking, I will avoid the overwhelming temptation to give it away, watching it in ignorance will ultimately have the best effect.The cast is superb, Hollywood superstar Bruce Willis gives a refreshing change of pace performance as award winning child psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe. Joining him is the critically acclaimed child actor Haley Joel Osment, last seen in Artificial Intelligence. The acting talents of this young boy are phenomenal, I have never seen such powerful presence, he is mature beyond his years.Haley thoroughly deserved recognition in the form of an Oscar nomination for his role as `Cole`; a gifted young boy with the exceptional ability of having the sixth sense. Possessing this gift however only serves to create fear in the mind of a nine year old, and scepticism in everyone around him. Cole experiences terrifying, unwanted visits from the spiritual world, which inevitably leads to his social isolation. Dr. Crowe recognises Coles behaviour, and remembers many years back when he had a patient with the same symptoms. This patient however left a painful impact on his conscience, as he was unable to help. Dr. Crowe then seeks to redeem himself by doing everything in his power to help troubled Cole.As Cole is alone in seeing and hearing these suffering spirits, it is also he who must help them rest. To do this Cole must confront his nightmare. It is only with Dr.Read more ›

THE SIXTH SENSE is a very unusual movie about a young boy who has the ability to see and hear dead people. The leading role in the film is that of a psychologist (Bruce Willis) who counsels the young seer (Hailey Joel Osment). The movie is helped by an ending with a terrific wallop and a strong supporting cast which includes Toni Collette and Olivia Williams.
Much of the success of the film was due to writer-director M. Night Shyamalan. He was less successful in the next year with UNBREAKABLE which also starred Bruce Willis.
THE SIXTH SENSE received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, Supporting Actor (Haley Joel Osment), Supporting Actress (Toni Collette) and Editing.

Having first seen this film on digital satellite I felt compelled to purchase it to keep. Unlike many films that are now emerging from Hollywood it has a strong story concept that is underpinned by the phenomenal acting abilities of it's young star Haley Joel Osment. For one so young he displays the maturity of talent in his role that is rarely seen in actors 3 times his age. Yet again Bruce Willis shows that his character diversity seems to have no limits in his portrayal of a child psychologist who is tasked to help a young boy who is plagued by visions of dead people. M Knight Shyamalan's screenplay is compelling to the point of addiction and you will find yourself totally immersed in the stunning and intricate plot. His directing skills are thrown into the fore with his intelligent use of lighting and shadow to take you deep into a paranormal world that has many twists and turns. Watch this video and you will have seen a truly masterful piece of cinematographic art.

Format: DVD
I'm a big fan of M. Night Shyamalan, and there are some of his films which I really liked that most people wouldn't rate very highly. The Sixth Sense though, is simply outstanding! One of the greatest films in modern times, and I couldn't think of many film fans who would disagree with me. I was on the edge of my seat throughout due to the suspense which Shyamalan creates so well; it certainly made me jump a few times. However, the thing that hits you the most is the standard of the acting. Haley Joel Osment, considering his age at the time that this was filmed, played a very moving role and performed better than most adult actors. And what can you say about Bruce Willis? If anything, his role as a calm psychologist was more impressive than his action junkie identity shown in Die Hard.

The director puts his usual twist into the film, and on the second watching, you do see some hints leading to it, but I would never have guessed it when I saw the film for the first time.

The Sixth Sense really makes you think after watching it, it moves you in more ways than one. Plus, there are some interesting extras on the second disc which definately makes it worth buying this edition. A truely brilliant film, one of my favourites.
