Devil

Five strangers' day begins with an elevator ride in a Philadelphia office tower. But, what happens next is anything but ordinary. The elevator gets stuck, and the trapped passengers, who expected to be together just a few minutes, now face the revelation of their secrets and transgressions. Frightening events turn annoyance into terror, as they begin to realize that one of their number is Lucifer himself.

Sep 21, 2010 - Jennavive. on Devil

This was the first trailer Shyamalan has put together that actually looked entertaining, and while I personally only enjoyed his (only good film?) The Sixth Sense I was intrigued enough to give the film a shot knowing what I was going into. A overly simplified story with a obvious plot.

The only thing that saved the film was some bloody sequences and the simple suspense of being jolted when the lights go out. The acting was dreadful, you don't know weather to blame the actors themselves or the material and direction they were given to work with. None of there emotions were believable which made death seem fake. Other wise Shyamalan is just trying so hard to steer you in the opposite direction of where he is intending that you become bored, but the random deaths keep you curious as to who will be next.

Over all the film was terrible of course, but for M Night Shyamalan I have will pull a golf clap it was more entertaining then all of his creations, (6th Sense excluded, as predictable as it was) Devil was enough to make me jump in my seat but if I had been asked I would have walked out.

Shyamalan stick to writing books.

Awful movie.

The only "devil" in this film is M. Night Shyamalan. Apparently all the people who've bought tickets to see his movies are horrible sinners and need to be shown the err of their ways. I hadn't seen one of his movies in quite some time (as I typically try to avoid watching horrible movies), but I gave this one a shot to see if he had improved any. He hasn't. He's an antihero of sorts: where most filmmakers start out doing relatively bad work and eventually mature and produce works of beauty, M. Night Shyamalan is quite the opposite. The original movie that propelled him into the spotlight ("The Sixth Sense") was a fantastic movie filled with suspense, and this film has as much suspense as waiting to see whether or not your mail-in rebate was received by the due date.

Everything about this film is simply awful: the acting is wooden (the only relatively entertaining character in the film is killed off first), the story is disjointed and unbelievable (even with suspension of disbelief, as is necessary in most horror/thriller flicks), and the cinematography (what little of it isn't spent staring at some people in an elevator) is severely lacking. Despite the fact that this film has many "jumpy" horror moments, I found myself yawning throughout parts of it from just how obvious it was that it was coming. There is maybe one scene that threw me off guard, but the rest you can see coming from a mile away (like the due date on your mail-in rebate), and it proves that M. Night can't even pull off quick and cheap thrills either. If he can't even pull off those, then what's he got left?

Perhaps the twist is figuring out how he's going to make a decent movie when he has no discernible talent.

TAKE THE STAIRS!!

If you are a horror movies fan, this one will be right up your alley.But remember it is a horror movie, not some great blockbuster film, and just go and enjoy it for what it is. A little bit of mystery going on, but nothing that is too hard to figure out.
