"The Sixth Sense" has great performances from Bruce Willis (who plays Malcolm, an emotionally wounded psychologist)and Haley Joel Osment (who plays Cole, a little boy with a remarkable gift:he sees dead people) The screenplay is wonderful.
"They don't know they're dead," laments Cole."They think they're alive.They see what they want to see." Malcolm is determined to help him. His marriage has been failing ever since an old case that showed almost the same symtoms shot him in the side and then killed himself.Malcolm is determined not to let that happen to Cole.
This is a remarkable movie with a Hitchcokian twist at the end.Watch it, and you'll be doing double takes next time you feel that strange presence behind your back.
Shymalan, ably assisted by Tak Fujimoto's brilliantly icy cinematography, wrings suspense and terror out of empty doorways, split-second glimpses of figures in the background, and unknown things lurking in the dark. But this is hardly a cheap slasher film: perhaps the most wonderful aspect of this film is its message, that fear can be conquered through understanding and compassion.
Cleverly plotted, bolstered by fine performances from Olivia Williams as Willis's melancholy wife and Toni Colette as Osment's worried mom, and graced with a twist ending worthy of Hitchcock, "The Sixth Sense" is a magnificently creepy film that will have you jumping at shadows long after it's over.
Imagine then my profound sense of disappointment when I saw the first preview come on. Instantly, I reached for the DVD remote and pressed the Menu button only to find it had been disabled.
When the second preview followed and still the Menu button was dead, I started to feel annoyed. By the time the fourth one began, I was thoroughly and completely angry and pledged never to watch any of the four movies that had been forced on me.
Yes, I will admit that once The Sixth Sense began, the experience was every bit as satisfying as I had hoped. And the extra features are a very nice bonus. I don't doubt that this disc will be played many many times before I tire of it.
However, in the end, the forced previews ruin this disc. I would have been happy to watch any previews the disc producers wanted me to watch ... so long as they gave me the freedom to choose when to watch them.
A fatal mistake. Simply brutal. This disc should be recalled and replaced with one that does not force the experience. At this point, this studio is in my doghouse. If they pull this stunt again, I will never buy another disc from them.
This is one Collector's Edition that may become a Trash Collector's edition.
In the '90s we've been constantly bored with horror movies: the Scream trilogy, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and so on and so on. Finally a horror film that gives depth to it's characters! This is just a great old-fashioned ghost story. What better place to set a ghost story than in Philadelphia? Every building has a history behind it (including young Cole's school). Any film that drops clues (the color red) and demands repeated viewings is worth buying. Haley Joel Osment (Cole), who may have the most lines in the movie, truley gives the year's best supporting performance (sorry Michael Caine). The movie grabs you immediately in the first five minutes and gives one of the best endings in recent memory. This is the role Bruce Willis will be best remembered.
Also impressive is Toni Collete as Lynn Sear, the mother of Cole who feels so hopeless in helping her obviously torchured son. She makes triangle pancakes for him, takes him for a joy ride in a supermarket parking lot, and arranges get-togethers with the other kids, but she can't help him. Only Malcom Crowe can (Willis). But maybe Cole can also help Malcom. Only American Beauty was better in '99. Buy the DVD. Extra footage is very engrossing.

|Is this appropriate for 12 year olds?||
I definitely wouldn't recommend buying The Sixth Sense for a twelve year old and his friends, it's a movie made for more mature viewers, and despite focusing on a young child, it definitely wouldn't be a pleasant viewing experience for a bunch of kids to see, as it is both incredibly sad and...

|Did Cole know Malcolm was a ghost?||
It's the type of movie where each time you watch it you notice something new, or see a different 'clue' to the mystery. Granted, there are flaws and plot holes (as in any film) but this one succeeds in creating a creepy mood and for me the twist was just gravy.
People either like it or hate it.... Read More

|Cliched and Logically Flawed Screenplay||
I don't think the movie tries to distinguish itself from old cliched ghost stories. If anything it's almost an homage to them.
Of course there are plot holes. Many films have them, some notoriously, like the Star Wars movies.
The Sixth Sense has its flaws, of course. But it's still an... Read More
