The Sixth Sense

Since I can't find any review about this movie. So, I'll make one.

The Sixth Sense (1999)
This movie delivers and it will surprise you.

This is one of my all time favorites. You would feel creepy when you go to sleep after watching this movie. The scary part is not because of the surprise or pop up moments and also not because of some revolting characters. The whole situation in the movie creates this feeling and therefore, this is a great movie. The ending offers a surprise for you who can’t guess what has happened. However, I feel that you should concentrate and imagine this movie deeply in order to enjoy and value it.

The movie is about Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis), a children psychiatrist who feels lost in his life. He finds difficulty to understand his situation and on top of that his relationship with his wife is getting worse. One day he meets with Cole Sears (Haley Joel Osment), a boy who has problems in socializing with other kids. This boy separates himself from others and spends his time by playing in the church. With a great effort and patience, Dr. Crowe manages to gradually open up Cole’s source of problem. Cole says that he sees dead people around him. This revelation strikes Dr. Crowe and he cannot believe it. He thinks that Cole has hallucination problem. However, the relationship between doctor and patient continues and develops even further. In the end, both are helping each other to overcome each person’s problem.

Bruce and Haley interact nicely in the movie. Haley’s mom (Toni Collette) performs emotionally as a single mother who tries desperately to protect and understand his son. However, special praise goes for Haley in this movie. His performance is just outstanding in every aspect. This is definitely one of the best child actor performances of all time. I really feel that the Oscar should be his (no offence to Mr. Michael Caine).

To sum up, this is a great drama-horror movie, one of a kind. I highly recommend this movie and the ending offers a fascinating twist and surprise. I give 10/10.
