A lovely shot tale that has resonance in the modern age.
This user comment is my own personal feelings, it is not a review that I make in the hope of turning anyone’s opinion to that of my own, no mater what anyone says or does, my feelings for the film will never change.
I see a smartly crafted movie about fear and hope, a community living in fear of the outside world, I see involving characters to follow with interest, I see a gorgeous setting that intrigues and engages me.
Manoj Night Shyamalan’s fourth mainstream picture is now, as we can all agree, a victim of a terrible marketing campaign, wasn’t it? For there are horror elements in the film, of which I don’t wish to spoiler write about, the horror elements are there, they just aren’t the boo jump scary monster variety that many had hoped for. The ending to the film disappoints many it would seem, but it doesn’t to me because it is here that the film has most resonance and the point is well and truly made. It’s acted out with style from the majority of the cast, and Shyamalan directs with a steady caring approach. It’s not without flaws for sure, but this is a very tidy piece that’s saying quite a bit if the viewer is so inclined to jump on board. All told, it’s a very solid and thought provoking piece that’s made with much film making care. 8/10
Great watch, will watch again, and can recommend.
Being this is in the Shamallama-verse, it catches a lot of flak for having a “twist”, and being a bit of a intellectual weight lift, but even knowing the “twist”, I find it to be a very interesting watch.
A blind protagonist is immediately interesting to me because it tends to lend itself to the non-traditional elements of a movie and is usually very refreshing for those of us that watch a lot of movies.
Bryce Dallas Howard, especially, does much of the heavy lifting in this movie, but there really is a stacked cast that all give a good amount of quality support through their roles: it’s not just about the blind girl travelling for days through the woods, it is about the community. Stories that focus on things larger than a single person as a “character” tend to lose people as they like to immerse themselves in a character and still feel they’re bigger than the world in the setting.
The initial concept of a “big bad wolf” in the woods is interesting, but they do go a different way with it: they’re almost a society of creatures the way they’re given to behave where werewolves might have actually been a more effective choice for a “monster”.
Likely this has been spoiled for you, but if not, then you should definitely give it a shot, and if so, then you should see how it is for yourself.
Not necessarily a horror film, but a character study with elements of horror
I went to see M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Village” today.
First things first… I won’t even discuss a SINGLE aspect of the plot, here, so you can read this safely. I will say this: If you plan to see the movie, do not read a single review (besides mine!). As with most of Shyamalan’s films, the less you know about the plot going in, the better.
As far as the quality of the film… it is solid. Beautifully directed, well acted, dramatic, scary, sometimes funny, and with some great plot twists. It is not as good as “The Sixth Sense”, but it’s probably not fair to keep comparing Shyamalan’s work to his first big hit, one of the best psychological horror films ever made. A director could work his entire career and never make a SINGLE film as good as “The Sixth Sense”, let alone recapture that movie’s amazing brilliance.
But, I hear you asking, is “The Village” better than “Unbreakable” and “Signs” (Shyamalan’s second and third films)??? Well, that depends on what you thought of those films. Personally, I’d probably say that it is a better film than those two. At the very least it is more sophisticated, with stronger themes, a much bigger and better cast, and more subtle surprises than in those two films.
“The Village” continues Shyamalan’s pattern of there being twists in the plot, but this time there are SEVERAL of them and they occur sporadically throughout the film… not one big one at the end. You WILL be surprised by the film, but don’t expect to be bowled over.
I would describe this as his most subtle film, and also as more of a character study than a horror film. The characters here are very rich, and their interactions and relationships with one another are very rewarding in big and small ways. The acting is phenomenal, most noticeably by Academy Award winner Adrian Brody and Joaquin Phoenix. But first time actress Bryce Dallas Howard (Ron Howard’s daughter), William Hurt and Sigourney Weaver all give solid performances as well.
“The Village” is a character study of how a community and individuals respond under pressure and fear. And while it has elements of horror, I’m not even sure I would describe it as a horror film.
But don’t get me wrong, there are some real scary moments in the film… just don’t go in expecting a roller coaster ride. While I was watching it, I kept thinking about some of the better episodes of The Twilight Zone that had a few thrills but left you thinking about human nature more than anything.
Go see “The Village”, but bring someone with you.
Amazing movie, don’t listen to critics
The Village is an excellent movie in all respects, possibly not Shyamalans best, but definitely up there. I really can’t imagine why reviewers gave it low scores, I don’t know anyone personally that dislikes the movie at all.
The Village centers around a quaint 19th century village in the middle of nowhere. The inhabitants of the village are relatively happy, despite the constant fear of the horrible creatures in the woods surrounding the village.
The characters are extremely believable and beautifully crafted. Granted, there is some broken dialogue, and it makes one cringe at one point or another, but it is not common and does not ruin the characterization. Joaquin Phoenix is excellent as usual, as is Bryce Dallas Howard, a new face in the cast of Oscar winning actors.
The plot is a typical Shyamalan twist fest with a little romance added for good measure. This does not take away from the atmosphere at all, however, and is done very well. There are a couple parts that are quite chilling, but not SCARY per se. I definitely felt a tingle run down my spine a few times. The ending, if it hasn’t already been ruined for you or you don’t figure it out half way through the movie, will leave you in shock.
Overall, this is an amazing movie, I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone; you will not be disappointed.
