How many ways can I say brilliant? M. Knight does it again! After his smash hit with lady in the water I didn't think he could pull off another PERFECT film such as this one! This movie is about some sort of occurrence in which people stop dead in their tracks and start spouting beautifully artistic soliloquies before taking their own life,all against their own will. The film begins with one of these elegantly crafted sequences followed by a short educational scene,and then descends into extreme emotional drama with the news that the main characters wife is cheating on him! Oh the struggle these people face! Through out there is pitch perfect acting from everyone! Mark wahlberg is the true heart and soul of this master piece he brings so much to this role it's hard to think of him as anyone other then his character in this film! Overall the movie is by far better then any of M. Knight Shyamalan's previous works! The main picture is a cavalcade of amazement! what's that Kent? Oh yes this isn't really a DVD review without mentioning the BONUS FEATURES! First of all the picture quality is stunning! If you could take Blu Ray and HD DVD and combine them you would get roughly 1/5 the picture quality of this DVD! This DVD has THE best audio features I have ever seen! There are a total of 45 languages 4 of which have not yet been invented,and 12 fantastic commentary tracks with god himself on one of them! As if the film itself weren't enough the DVD also includes a making of documentary called Visions of The Happening It is truly the greatest Documentary known to man!
This movie receives an A! not the best picture of the year (nothing is as good as disaster movie) It is at least going to win best actor and best original screen play!
