I'll probably love it. Rotten Tomatoes has not been too kind to M. Night Shyamalan in the past though, so we shall see...

52% when the final review is in... which is an improvement for M. Night - even though I'm sure the film will suck pretty hard.

I wanted to say 50%, but it was right on the borderline between the choices. And I figured it would be lower than 50%, if anything, so I went with that choice.

Who cares? Go see it for yourself, don't rely on what other people tell you.

Relying on critics to form your opinions = pointless.

I refuse to accept information on anything called a "Tomatometer"!

Complaining about what is ultimately a fun and harmless thread = pointless.

Seriously?

and 66% I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt that critics will be sharply divided on it.

Couldn't stand his last two films. This one looks promising and I'll probably check it out.
