The Happening: D

The Happening - 04, originally uploaded by MyCine.

Scott and saw The Happening on Sunday. It wasn't very good, but it wasn't unwatchable as long as you have low expectations.

I really wanted to like the movie. I loved Signs and liked The Village, but this movie didn't seem like a M. Night Shyamalan movie. The photography wasn't very interesting and the story was pointless. The most memorable scenes were shown in the previews and replayed within the first 20 minutes of the movie.

Marky Mark, Zooey Deschanel, and John Leguizamo were completely unconvincing. There were a lot of apocalyptic movie cliches such as an unnecessary love story that falls completely flat, fringe members of society and gun-toting vigilantes.
