Split by M. Night Shyamalan is a Thriller/Horror film about the kidnapping of 3 teenage girls by a man with a psychological disorder. The film stars James McAvoy and is rated PG-13 due to its violence and gore content. It is a modern day film taking place in New York.

The main character has a rare disorder which allows him to have multiple personalities in one body. He kidnaps three teenage girls and keeps them in an abandoned warehouse. The girls slowly figure out that the man has multiple personalities and try to use it against him. The girls try many times to escape but are punished by each personality.

The overall acting in the movie was very good but the plot was disappointing. The commercials made the movie seem a lot better than it actually was and although the movie was very suspenseful, it never fully explained the plot.

Also, the movie took place in an abandoned warehouse which was very confusing. From the beginning of the film you see that they are in the warehouse basement and it doesn’t show any other aspect of the building. This was confusing when they finally showed where the girls were and it didn’t fully explain how they ended up there.
Overall, the film was rather disappointing and didn’t fulfill my expectations that formed from the previews. The acting and directing was very good but the plot did not play out well. This movie is 3 out of 5 stars.
