Lady in the Water Movie Review
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 UtopiaCleavland 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 BlundersLady 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 LineIf 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.
