Old ★★


It wouldn’t feel like a return to theaters without an M Night Shaymalan film. Old, like many of his films, has a very interesting concept, but could never land the mark. The cinematography is fantastic, but that’s the only real high praise I had for the film. A couple portions of the story were interesting, but those could’ve been more out of the graphic novel series. The over the top performances were similar like performances in The Happening, but they weren’t as awful. The script didn’t help as well with so many moments being so laughably awkward. Then by the time it got to the finish, all hope I had for this pretty much went down. I was able to have fun seeing it with friends, but if you’re looking for a bad but somewhat fun Shyamalan flick, Old is definitely that.
