The Sixth Sense

The Sixth Sense is a reasonable thriller with a good twist at the end (I genuinely didn’t know what it was; and I won’t spoil it for anyone else who doesn’t). Haley Joel Osment and Bruce Willis are both excellent, and the supporting cast competent. Osment in particular stands out - he has done well in other films such as A.I., and is one of the most competent child actors of the modern generation. The film drifts rather to start with, and by the time it gets going the end of the film is approaching. But apart from this mismatch of pace, this is an interesting film from M. Night Shyamalan, one of the most successful Indian film directors to break into Hollywood. Willis again proves that he isn’t just an action hero (see Death Becomes Her and Color of Night for other examples).


Ah, you big girl's blouse :) But, really, I know what you mean - I have the same reaction to Forrest Gump. Pay It Forward is a decent film - Kevin Spacey isn't quite up to his usual standard, but it's otherwise not bad, from what I remember.
Haley Joel Osment is a great child actor. One of his best performances being in the film Pay It Forward - one of the only films I will admit to crying at!
