The Happening? More like Nothing Happens

Oh my god this movie was boring with bad writting and bad acting. I don't know who to blame to be honest. Was it M. Night or the studio? I don't know which one but I was bored out of my mind and 5.0? It should be in a 4.6 or 4.0 you know what? What about a 3.9? It fits well for this bore-fest. This is a movie where nothing HAPPENS. MESSAGE TO UPCOMING CRITICS, aviod this film as far as you can. I wasted 91 minutes of my time like I could of been doing something better in my life than watching a crappy movie. DON'T WATCH IT!!

In 2008 we had The Dark Knight and Iron Man but we also had The Happening...

A science teacher, his wife, and a young girl struggle to survive a plague that causes those infected to commit suicide. Mark Wahlberg stars as a teacher who talks to plants and basically plants make people die cause why wouldn't they right? The performances are laughable, the script is bad and the entire plot sounds dumber than it already is and i totally get it why so many people hate M. Night Shyamalan the man had such a promising career and outside of the brilliant Sixth Sense and the underrated Signs he has made a few watchable but flawed films such as Unbreakable and Split but movies such as The Happening and The Visit is when good careers go and die and unfortunately this is what happened in 2008 with this movie thankfully everyone still has a career and make great films again but making a film where Wahlberg talks to plant like he is stoned or something isn't actually comedic it's just retarded. (0/10)

WHY is this a "bad" movie, all you copycat reviewers?

This is as good as anything I've seen from MNS, and better than several of his films. I'd compare it to "Signs" in many ways. It has a mysterious atmosphere throughout and presents a subtle yet powerful concept of nature vs. Man.

I watched it despite all the drones who panned it (including IMDb's editorializing with the "comedy" category). Some say the first half is good, then claim it deteriorated toward the end, but that makes no sense to me after seeing the whole thing. It has his typical dreamlike quality which somewhat intensifies, but it never seems cheesy, etc.

Are the masses unsatisfied unless they absolutely know the enemy? My theory on the negative reviews is the psychology of refusing to be objective once a negative idea is planted, and/or anti-environmental mindsets that pervade America. A number of people will always scoff when human omnipotence is questioned.

Be an original thinker, ignore the negative reviews and enjoy it for what it is.
