The film has a "B" movie knockoff of a Spielberg feel. Every time they look up you expect a bicycle crossing the moon.
The characters and the actors look like cardboard knockoffs of famous actors more than people. Bryce Dallas Howard in make up looks like a young Tilda Swinton.
Then "Whisper in the Noise" mangles a great Dylan song "Times are a Changing"
Grate concept - pitiful execution.

I am a big fan of Shyamalan's work particularly "The Village." Most of his films have been box office successes until this one and though "LITW" definitely has some problems: the plot is too complicated and the storyline too convoluted, overall it is very thoughtful,persuasive and touching...very much a fairy tale, very much a personal, emotionally available film from Shyamalan.
For many, all this business about the Blue World, the Narf (a resplendent, totally believable, vulnerable Bryce Howard as Story), the green creature whose goal it is to kill her, etc, etc. is negligible at best and silly and off-putting at worst but there is also no doubt that Shyamalan is committed to this material, casts it perfectly (Paul Giamatti as the man who protects, discovers and leads Story's return to the Blue World, the excellent Jeffrey Wright as a crossword puzzle addict whose son holds the key to Story's return) and films it with obvious delight and love.
"Lady in the Water" is not a great film nor is it Shyamalan's best: what it is, is a charming little film about our need for home and the comforts derived therein. Shyamalan also has the sense to steal from the very best: in this case "The Wizard of Oz" and his take on this material, as usual is pristine, his moviemaking above reproach.
a weird one.i could make little sense of it,and there seemed to be some
gaping plot holes.to me,it seemed to be a philosophy lesson at
times,which is good if you want a philosophy lesson,but i didn't.add to
that,to me there was a lot of overacting going on.the movie just didn't
make a lot of sense.Shyamalan says this is a fairy tale(which he
apparently created)he used to tell his children went hey were young.for
a young child,this would probably be entertaining,and some adults might
enjoy it.normally i watch a movie to be entertained,and don't worry
about plot holes or gaps in logic.but for me,there were just too many
to overlook.Not a horrible movie,by any means but not as good as it
could have been.3/5

and the film is something unusual and enjoyable you can slip into, allowing your mind to slide its focus away from your usual world. Read morePublished on May 29 2007 by Linda
