This third feature by M. Night Shyamalan sets itself up as a thriller, poised on the brink of delivering monstrous scares, but gradually evolves into more of a psychological drama with supernatural undertones. Many critics faulted the film for being mawkish and New Age-y, but no matter how you slice it, this is one mightily effective piece of filmmaking. The bare bones of the story are basic enough, but the moody atmosphere created by Shyamalan and cinematographer Tak Fujimoto made this one of the creepiest pictures of 1999, forsaking excessive gore for a sinisterly simple feeling of chilly otherworldliness. Willis is in his strong, silent type mode here, and gives the film wholly over to Osment, whose crumpled face and big eyes convey a child too wise for his years; his scenes with his mother (Toni Collette) are small, heartbreaking marvels. And even if you figure out the film's surprise ending, it packs an amazingly emotional wallop when it comes, and will have you racing to watch the movie again with a new perspective. You may be able to shake off the sentimentality of The Sixth Sense, but its craftsmanship and atmosphere will stay with you for days. --Mark Englehart

Awesome movie, great film with a turning point that will make your jaw drop.
Great acting by Bruce Willis and the young lad who stole the spotlight.
This is pretty much the same review i gave the Number 23 and pretty much the same reason, except that i really like this story. Another gift to fill out the library.Published 4 days ago by Just Me

|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
