Plot Summary
A man with 23 separate identities kidnaps 3 girls, and holds them against their will
When I first saw the trailer for this movie I was so excited. I love a well-done psychological thriller. Then I found out it was being released in January and the first red flag went up. Then I did some research and found out it was a M. Night Shyamalan directed film. That isn't necessarily a red flag, but his films are typically either great or horrible.

I went into the screening cautiously optimistic.

I came out of that screening completely excited about the movie I just saw...and the future.

James McAvoy gives a performance that is award-worthy. I know we are only three weeks into 2017, but this is the kind of performance that has the ability to stand up all year long and be remembered at the end of the year when all of the associations start voting. At one point he is switching back and forth between several of the 23 personalities that are a part of him. It is a masterclass in acting done in 45 seconds.

The movie is highly suspenseful. There were several moments where I caught myself holding my breath, or grabbing the armrests too tight. The story is compelling, fast-paced, and told well with flashbacks giving us pieces of the mystery in a way that makes you want more.

The climactic scene is terrifying and your emotions will be all over the place

As for the future, there are a couple of very interesting scenes at the end of the movie that will open up a whole world of possibilities. Make sure you stay through the end credits as well. If you thought Shyamalan blew your mind with some of his earlier works, wait until you see what happens in SPLIT.
