Split (15)

Split (15)

Horror, Thriller

After three girls are kidnapped by a man with 24 distinct personalities they must find some of the different personalities that can help them while running away and staying alive from the others.

The critical consensus

M Night Shyamalan is back to his best in a film featuring spectacularly wide-ranging work from James McAvoy.

****(*)James Mottram, The List, 16/01/2017

This psycho-thriller showcases an awards-worthy performance from James McAvoy. Shyamalan papers over plot-holes with dry black humour and well-judged suspense, and — as always — holds back some surprises.

****(*)Kim Newman, Empire Online, 16/01/2017

This is a Shyamalan movie through and through. And it’s his best in some time, thanks to a magnetic McAvoy.

****(*)Neil Smith, Total Film, 16/01/2017

As the absurdities mount, the film loses its edge. For all the thrills along the way, Split doesn’t have any clear sense of its identity or of where it is headed or why.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 18/01/2017

This suspenseful tale is surprisingly satisfying thanks to clever plotting and a fine performance from James McAvoy as a man with two dozen personalities.

It’s hard to imagine that Split will be embraced by mental health professionals but it makes for a tense, heart-inthe-mouth cat-and-mouse thriller.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 20/01/2017

James McAvoy possesses multiple personalities in an ambitious supernatural thriller that could nonetheless do with a few scares.
