Split is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and stars James McAvoy and Anya Taylor Joy. It follows the story of a troubled youth as she is imprisoned alongside 2 classmates. The kidnapper suffers from multiple personality disorder with a 24th personality about to be unleashed.

M. Night Shyamalan has successfully created a film hearkening back to his classic tales such as The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. His style of writing and directing follows his older movies more so than his latter ones. In Split, Shyamalan has returned to his ability to direct character driven thrillers. Every scene was directed with sharp writing and tight directing.

James McAvoy does an excellent job portraying the damaged and troubled personalities. The film allows James McAvoy to apply his full range and personality to the roles. Another actor could have emoted the lines poorly ruining the movie. Special care was taken to make each personality distinct and each does feel distinct.

Split is highly recommended to casual moviegoers and for Shyamalan detractors. The movie is creatively tense and James McAvoy's performance is astonishing.
