.... Speechless, said the goat. I can honestly say that this is the best suspense-thriller of the summer as of yet. Phenominal acting coupled with a mind shattering story line make this movie a must see for the masses. It will have you biting your tongue in a valient effort not to reveal the perfectly potent plot.Only out of the mind of... who wrote this movie? Who cares, he is a fucking genius. With out unmasking any of the plot, I can say that Bruce Willis (Malcolm), Haley Joel Osment (Cole), and Olivia Williams (Anna) gave flawless performances in representing a plethora (yes, plethora) of emotionally complex characters.
Throughout the movie, Haley is able to display a genuine sense of fear which pulls you in and forces you to feel what Cole is feeling. Even knowing the premise of the film could not take away from what Haley accomplished in this movie.
Bruce is finally showing that you don't need to put a gun in his hand to make people say, "What a performance".
Olivia is only in about 1/4 of the movie total, but speaks volumes while portraying someone with enormous weight on her shoulders, A weight, which when revealed, is not only lifted from her, but slams you square in the face like a Mack truck carrying Opera.Without hesitation I will tell you to see this movie. In my opinion it sets a standard which raises the bar a good 2 notches for suspense-thrillers. Is it cold in here...
