.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - While this psychological thriller has only minimal profanity and doesn't have any graphically bloody violence and hence bears a PG-13 rating, it is still far too intense, dark, and brutal for children. Fans of James McAvoy will certainly enjoy this major showcase for his acting versatility, and fans of director M. Night Shyamalan's work will certainly be pleased.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average ...this is a sad, tired, and un-scary venture into tediousness. The narrative is choppy, the tension is less pervasive than it should be, and there's no ending. It's unsatisfying and feels like a cheat for anyone who bought a ticket expecting to see a whole film rather than just Part One of a proposed series.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good A rare, straight-up horror film from Shyamalan, "Split” is a thrilling reminder of what a technical master he can be. All his virtuoso camerawork is on display... And the twist—that there is no Big Twist—is one of the most refreshing parts of all.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...an eerie and intimate psychological thriller with Hitchcockian tones harkening back to the Shyamalan's early 2000s run that put him on the filmmaking map. Split lags at times when it leans on stereotypical thriller tropes...but the inevitable reveals...are satisfying mainly because of the performances.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average Unfortunately, you could probably improve "Split” by editing out everything around McAvoy and making it an experimental one-man show. At least then it would escape this parade of clichés...
