5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, 3 Feb 2009
This review is from: The Sixth Sense - 2 Disc Collector's Edition [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
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!
