so i watched The Village, with full knowledge what critics already said about it. i conditioned myself well, since i didnt think the movie sucked that much. ok, the whispering was just way overdone, and Adrien Brody went to waste. but Shyamalan‘s intention seemed inept for a full-length feature. if the screenplay was condensed into a short story, or the production was limited to Twilight Zone segment, it would have been appropriate.
