The Happening

Title: The Happening

Starring Actor(s)/Actress(es): Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel, John Leguizamo, Ashlyn Sanchez

Genre: Sci Fi / Drama

Status: In Theaters

Plot Summary: In the fear of some unknown threat attacking the northeast, a group of people try to outrun the attacks.

Review: I went into this one with pretty low expectations. M. Night Shyamalan (Signs, The Sixth Sense, The Village) is, by far, not one of my favorite directors/writers. That being said, this one did break the mold a little. The story is actually pretty interesting, but it’s really never explained. Sometimes things don’t need to be fully explained, but for something like this, I think they should have. Also, I don’t know if it was supposed to be how the character talked, but Mark Wahlberg’s acting just seemed really over exaggerated and just plain bad throughout the entire thing. Really, the only reason this movie had any appeal was watching people die in pretty (awesome) disgusting ways. It definitely won’t be in the top ten at the box office very long.

Rating: 2/5
