Devil


Plot Outline: A group of strangers are trapped in an elevator and can sense evil is among them.

Release Date: September 17th 2010

I know many people aren’t M. Night Shyamalan fans actually, I know people are pretty anti M. Night but not me! I can’t help but love the guy. I always enjoy his movies. Keep ‘em comin’!

Everyone was telling me how awful Devil was. How stupid, silly, badly acted…all I heard were negative things about it. Knowing my love for M. Night movies I had to see it despite all the bad hype. Sure enough, I loved it.

Call me crazy but I thought it was an interesting plot.  Now, the acting wasn’t fantastic but it wasn’t nearly as bad as it has been in other films I have seen lately. I found the characters to be loveable.

This can be risky in a movie but it brought up a lot of religion and questions about the unknown…God and such.

I liked this because I find these topics to be fascinating.

Devil actually really made me thing. It had a lot of great quotes and situations that brought up reflecting on your own life and faith.

Back to the movie aspect. I thought it did a good job of keeping me a little nervous. There were cues where we just knew something bad was going to happen. I liked that because it kept me on my toes.

There was a point in the film when I thought it should just end there but it kept going…

I didn’t like the ending too much. It was a bit predictable.

Overall I liked Devil. I thought it was well made, suspenseful, and thought provoking.
