M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split” is about a guy who suffers of a rare disorder of multiple personalities, he actually holds 23 of them and the number 24, the beast, is about to be unleashed. Add to that the fact that he kidnaps 3 young girl and you have the story unfolded. Despite the fact that it wasn’t maybe necessary to give to the main character so many personalities, since in the movie only few of them are properly showed; Split is an enjoyable film, like most of Shyamalan’s previous work, without being nothing too memorable, this feature has some interesting points, maybe some flaws too but it is fair to say that it is nicely done, with and interesting pace and atmosphere that can keep the viewer into the plot, it’s a total M. Night Shyamalan’s film and if you are familiar with his style of cinema you kind of know already what to expect. Great performances by James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy, who is becoming quite very popular in the horror genre.
