User reviews on Happening
Unfortunately, I let M. Night lure me into another one of his lame movies yet again. This movie is an hour and a half of suicides and the wind blowing - really. Of course, after about 15 minutes I wanted to kill myself too - and take M. Night with me.
Everything about this movie is BAD: the acting, the script, the directing - you can even see the splicing in several scenes! This guy should just give up already before everyone forgets that he made "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs". Seriously folks - don't waste your time or money on this movie.
M Knight has pulled us in for another let down. He should have stopped at the Village!!! As my husband said, this was another Blair Witch, it left us hangin'!! Very slow moving and didn't have any action, oh wait a minute, yes it did, when the bodies started dropping at the construction site!!! I'm done spending $10 to see M Knights movies, I'll wait for the DVD on any future viewings.
This is the worst movie I have seen in the last 25 years. It ranks right up there with "Attack of the Killer Tomatos". Save your money. I would not even recommend to wait for the DVD. It is not worth the 5 bucks to rent it even if you had 50 friends to share the cost.
I actually really enjoyed this movie!
Don't go expecting a scary movie; M. Night Shyamalan's movies aren't meant to be scary. They're meant to tell an interesting story and make you think, and that's what this movie does. He really needs to get a better publicist so people will see his movies for what they are...
While this is probably Shayamalan's scariest movie yet, if you liked his other works (Signs, The Village, The Sixth Sense, etc.) you should definitely see it!
The only thing happening at "The Happening" is a robbery. Most of the audience I saw it with groaned about wanting their money back. And we should consider a class-action lawsuit to get it.
This movie is sooooooo bad it is actually criminal. M. Night Shyamalan should be arrested for fraud and impersonating a filmmaker.
S eriously, the plot is ridiculously thin, "attack of the killer trees and grass?" REALLY? Oh brother!
Mar k Wahlberg is just fun no matter what, but even he couldn't save this movie and I'm confused about what he possibly saw in this script that made him do the film.
After being forced to witness a few gruesome suicides we were then treated to 70 minutes of NOTHING. Everyone actually BOOED at the end, which by the way is the most ridiculous and disappointing movie climax letdown I've ever seen.
The Happening is a complete waste of time. Its not even bad enough to enjoy laughing at.
Forwarne d is forearmed. Tell your friends. This movie must be stopped before it ruins the movie nights of others.
Could have simply stayed at home and watched the trailers to get the drift. Not much more to the movie than the previews you see on TV. Not a bad plot but it kept you scratching your head wondering what the catch is.
I saw this on friday and it was as bad as "the strangers".I whan to see a sceary movie,this one didmt make since.I giving it 1 star.
