Shyamalan was able to capture the complexity of 26 characters using only 2 - 3 actors for the majority of the film, proving that both the acting and the directing were executed wonderfully.
The story was fantastic and filled in the gaps between Episode III and Episode IV magnificently.
I was expecting a sci-fi thriller when I first saw the trailer for this movie. I honestly felt a little mislead.
Between the phenomenally picturesque shots to the haunting and seamlessly interwoven metaphor for love, revenge and violence we see, this film was well done.
The story and the emotions behind the characters actions were beautifully represented. If you can get passed the "stage-like" presentation and the long-winded dialogue, it really is a fantastic film.
