About the Movie
Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns with an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Split" takes a step in this direction by positing that "mental sickness" might not always be an actual illness - but then takes two steps back by exploiting moviegoers' fears that people with unusual mental conditions can be unpredictably violent.
Fresh: The movie's simultaneous evocation of both the depravity at work beneath society's deceptive surfaces and the inadequacy of the liberal technocratic order to defend against that depravity is the secret to its success.
Fresh: The way that Shyamalan and Gioulakis emphasize close-ups and medium shots make for a taut, clean forcefulness that...give Split a leaner, hipper feel very different from the increasingly aestheticized studio polish of Shyamalan's earlier work.
Fresh: The film's most positive quality is the performance turned in by James McAvoy. It's a dream role given he plays so many different characters.
the most entertaining movie i've seen. there was never a moment i got bored, you're always wanting to see what happens next.
Hard to review with Spoilers
So I'll only say this. DC has yet to nail it & Marvel has never been able to deliver a well rounded villain. M. Night has created something that maybe a game changer on how super hero/comic book movies are made.
I believe this movie is a masterpiece!! M. Night is a genius, no matter what you think. This movie has one of the greatest endings ever💚💚💚💚💚💚😮😮😮
