Film Review: Split

split-movie-poster

M Knight’s latest film is fantastic. Reading up on the internet about where the character of Kevin came from was fascinating (see spoilers down below for what I found). Loved the film from start to finish. McAvoy was AMAZING as Dennis (and the others). He managed to make each character flow seamlessly from one to the other, there was no “Oooo there goes the change” moments, it was instant. One minute he was one character, seconds later he was another.

To say M Knight is back, I never thought he’d gone away as such, I have minor issues with most of his films but generally enjoy them all. However, I don’t necessarily think this film would have been as good as it was if it wasn’t for McAvoy.

So, Hedwig was my fave character – McAvoy was fantastic, how he went from a stuck up, passive aggressive woman to a 9 year old boy who had never been kissed….

M Knight had reportedly said that Kevin and his personalities were first a character as part of the Unbreakable Script (the original, original version) but that the character was too BIG for that film so he was removed and set to one side. Until NOW! Hence the cross over type thing at the end of Split (and we all know what I’m referring too).
