M. Night Shyamalan, the director who brought you movies like The Sixth Sense and Signs, is back with a new frightening flick, Lady in the Water. Find out if it made a big splash or if it came out a bit soggy!

Lady in the Water - Underwater Utopia

Cleavland Heap is a quiet man who makes his living as a maintenance man at an apartment building complex. He makes the rounds every day, unplugging drains, killing bugs, etc. He's pleasant and well-liked, but he's a man who feels he has no purpose in life. That is until a mysterious visitor appears out of the swimming pool one night; alone and in need of some help. She's come from a world underwater and her arrival is supposed to bring great change to humankind. Who could this stranger be?

Lady in the Water - Blue World Blunders

Lady in the Water is a modern-day fairy tale that M. Night Shyamalan came up with for his children, but this flick is far from warm and fuzzy. It's a complex story that involves some pretty scary scenes - nothing too graphic, but you're probably going to jump out of your seat a few times. The plot isn't as well-developed as it could have been, but it's an interesting enough story, so it should be able to hold your attention to the end.

Lady in the Water - Bottom Line

If you were looking forward to a flick that might live up to the success of The Sixth Sense, you aren't going to find it in Lady in the Water. What you will find is a spooky bedtime story with some cool twists and turns. Many of the characters are extremely interesting, so you'll be so wrapped up in their adventures that you'll probably be able to overlook the holes in the plot. It's a good movie to take that cutie you've been crushing on to - it's guaranteed to facilitate some serious cuddling.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
