ReelViews for movies with screenplay written by 'M. Night Shyamalan'
Overlong, talky, filled with meta references, and with a strangely low-energy tone, the movie never fully gels.
The narrative is choppy, the tension is less pervasive than it should be, and there’s no ending.
Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan is his own worst enemy in the choices he makes bringing "The Visit" to the screen.
