Last night I watched The Happening. It was my current Netflix pick.  I’ve heard bad reviews of it, but I have to say that I really enjoyed it.  I think people usually hit either end of the spectrum when it comes to M. Night Shymalan’s movies.  I tend to like them.  Granted there are some things I disagree with, or parts that don’t gel for me, but overall I have enjoyed all of his movies.

The Happening is not a fast paced action flick by any means.  Like his previous movies, this one relies on the story to keep you engaged.  There was no real twist to it, as everyone seems to expect that he’s going to keep trying to do.  It was laid out plain and simple, but yet still intriguing.  Granted it’s not one to run out and buy, but I did enjoy it a lot.
