    You're not the only person who gets weirded out by religious tones in films, Dom. Some people take it even worse.

    Last summer I got out of a screening of Sunshine, the least religious movie you can see, and because of one line the "villain" says about God at the very end, this old white dude throws his hands up in the air, pissed off, as he walks out and says "Great! Another movie about a stupid [person] who talks to God!" I thought it was hilarious because just the word God pushed this old man over the edge. Imagine if the film actually contained a hint of pro-religious undertones? He might have exploded out of pure rage.

    Let's ease away from any further comments that may be construed as discussion of religion, please.

    So I just got back from seeing the flick. I won't give any spoilers, but it was nothing short of awful. Its not the worst movie I've ever seen, buts its not any good. I highly suggest waiting for DVD if you want to see this one. At least it wasn't worse than Unbreakable....

    That's odd. A lot of people think that Unbreakable was Night's best film. I liked Unbreakable. So if you didn't like Unbreakable and you didn't like this movie.....I guess I'll have to go see it to find out if it's any good.

    I remember having very high expectations for Unbreakable, and I wasn't thrilled with it at the time. I was pretty young when I saw it, I'd like to see it again now. But this one was definately not good. Only thing that saved it was some humorous lines by Marky Mark.

    This is the first time I've heard that. And I'm sure it will be the last. Unbreakable was decent, but it's not in the same ball park as The 6th Sense.

He would be well-served to reconsider that decision. (Assuming he can still get a movie with that size budget made after this movie hits. )

    Don't get me wrong, I liked 6th Sense and Signs, but Unbreakable is the movie that best holds up to repeated viewings.

    Oh yeah: I saw this movie last night and it was a total abortion. Some of the worst dialog that I have ever heard in any movie, much less a major studio production.

    Unbreakable was his best. Signs was decent. the 6th Sense is probably good if you don't figure out the ending 15 minutes into the movie, otherwise there's no suspense and it becomes extremely boring.

    True. The only thing that saved any face for me was the pharmacy joke.

    This movie got such bad reviews I refused to go see it. It can't be good if it gets a 20% on rottentomatoes.
