Shyamalan at his best!,
This review is from: The Sixth Sense - 2 Disc Collector's Edition [DVD]  (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.
