"Split" from the year 2016
(117 minutes, psychological horror-thriller)
Kevin has 23 personalities living inside his body, some more present than others. When one of them is compelled to abduct three girls, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him...
I love "The Sixth Sense" from M. Night Shyamalan, so I was excited to see this movie.
And I was not disappointed!
James McAvoy is amazing as Kevin. He gives every personality its own accent, posture and attitude; you can clearly see which personality has the power over Kevin's body.
I also enjoy Anya Taylor-Joy as one of the kidnapped girls called Casey. She is the only one of the three with a backstory and a character arc.
I like that the action starts immediately and the characters are established during these moments and not before.
I also enjoyed that the viewer unraveled the truth about Kevin together with Casey.
All in all, I would recommend this movie to people who like (the good) M. Night Shyamalan films and people who think that a story about good and bad personalities living together in one body sounds like an interesting concept.
