After hearing various reports from friends about The Village, ranging from "It was great! Two thumbs up!", to "That was 2 hours of my life I can never get back.", I finally broke down and went to see it last night. The verdict? Meh.

I've seen worse movies, and I've seen better. I thought the acting, overall, was decent, and there were a couple suspenseful moments. The movie kind of dragged on in parts I thought, and the big shocking/surprise ending wasn't as shocking/surprising as I thought it was going to be. All in all, I would say that this movie wasn't a complete waste of time, but thats about as far as I would go with my praise. I will say this though, M. Night Shyamalan's name is fast becoming synonomous with "one-trick pony". Hey there, M. Night, movies don't always have to have a crazy twist ending all the time, you know.
