Major Disappointment!!! Seems to me that most of the women you ask liked this movie and most of the men did not.This movie was very intriguing during the first half:Great Acting,then just fell apart for me. The Story really had me going then took a turn for the worst.Totally led me in one direction, had me very interested,then bam, seemed to be very stupid and made me very pissed in the direction it took.This movie quite literally sucked. Nowhere near the quality of the movie SIGNS. Which in my opinion is by far his best movie, at least in signs everything is real...

As a fan of all things speculative and strange, I found THE VILLAGE to be a more mature take on our fears and the power of deception. It is by far M. Night Shyamalan's best film. I will not spoil the movie here for I feel you should definately go see it yourself. I am not a "fan" per se of Shyamalan but I do enjoy the way he takes a topic and turns it into a modern myth. THE VILLAGE is a place where safety and family are placed above all else.
After seeing Michael Moore's movie, I was ready for this movie and I understand the point that Shyamalan is making. There will be many of you who will find that it will take multiple viewings to truly comprehend the gravity of his point. For others it will be an immediate understanding.
The inital beginning of the movie is a little slower than I would have liked but each piece Shyamalan gives us IS a key to not only the atmosphere of the village, but also their belief systems, etc. The religion of the people is not stated or implied in any way, still you feel that the people's belief is apart of their everyday life.
The cast is excellent, although I would have liked to see more of the relationship between William Hurt and Sigourney Weaver's characters. Still it was a very good show.
I highly recommend it and will definately own it once it comes out on DVD.

I honestly loved this film. M. Night is one of my favorite filmmakers and I love The Village because it had the element of suspense that makes you think one way, but then it has a strange twist to it that made me say "WOAH! I didn't even see that comming!" This film had the love plot (which I adore), suspense plot, and a mysterious aspect to it also. In this movie I actually felt sorry for the "killer" and now have much respect for handicapped people.
M. Night actually turns me around to see the horror that could be found right in my backyard.
