M. Night Shyamalan has had a rocky directorial career, to say the least. He stunned movie-goers with early flicks like Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. However, his stories seemed to slip into some sort of twist-obsessed cesspool that became less and less charming for fans. Those twists that initially made him famous were quickly making him infamous. Most film lovers had chalked his career up to an odd descent into ludicrousy.
There comes a point where a once brilliant director and writer cannot maintain his same level of greatness across his movies, and the suitable thing for them to do is move on to do something else entirely. But, there are some directors that insist on trying to re-capture their fleeting moment of greatness again and again … never to do so.
Directors like M. Night Shyamalan.
I mean, I liked The Sixth Sense, and thought Signs had potential. But, while Unbreakable had its moments, The Village was not that good, and The Happening was just a train wreck on film. And, from what I hear, The Last Airbender was even worse than that.
