Critic Reviews of "Split (2017)"Richard Brody New YorkerJanuary 30, 2017
The movie's simultaneous evocation of both the depravity at work beneath society's deceptive surfaces and the inadequacy of the liberal technocratic order to defend against that depravity is the secret to its success.Lindsey Bahr Associated PressJanuary 27, 2017
Split isn't a disaster; it's just all over the place and not nearly as effective as it should be for something with such a good premise and performances.J. R. Jones Chicago ReaderJanuary 26, 2017
Three teenage girls are held captive in a grimy building somewhere by a madman with 23 personalities, but at least they aren't trapped in a theater watching this exercise in tedium from vaunted master of surprise M. Night Shyamalan.Rex Reed New York ObserverJanuary 25, 2017
This is a filmmaker with almost no real talent for coherence, originality or purpose and in spite of his insistence on audience secrecy, his overly contrived plots are easy to figure out before the beginning of the second reel.David Edelstein New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 24, 2017
Shyamalan has returned to what he loves to do: use cheap horror tropes to create his own harebrained mythos.Anthony Lane New YorkerJanuary 23, 2017
In short, we are watching an old-fashioned exploitation flick-part of a depleted and degrading genre that not even M. Night Shyamalan, the writer and director of "Split," can redeem.Matt Brunson Creative LoafingApril 22, 2017
Shyamalan oddly builds toward a climax that ultimately finds a positive side benefit to incest, pedophilia, and physical abuse.Pablo Villaça Cinema em CenaMarch 24, 2017
Shyamalan obviously understands the concept of suspense, but apparently doesn't know how to apply it anymore. [Full review in Portuguese.]Rain Jokinen SFistMarch 23, 2017
Shyamalan doesn't do enough with the tired premise to make it truly memorable, not even bothering to give all three of the captive girls distinctive personalities of their own.Candice Frederick Reel Talk OnlineMarch 22, 2017
It's shot well. Its ominous setting, nestled deep in the pit of a dark, multi-layered, multi-doored complex puts you on edge. But the narrative -- LORD, this narrative -- becomes a steaming hot mess.Daniel Bernal Cinetvymas.clMarch 17, 2017
A movie that you can't stop watching. All McAvoy's interpretations of its protagonist are enjoyable and the movie doesn't waste time in sequences or unnecessary explanations. [Full review in Spanish]Britt Hayes ScreenCrushMarch 16, 2017
Split is [Shyamalan's] most thoughtful film in years, and one that contains ideas and feelings that resonate on a deep, visceral level.
