A family’s trip to a secluded tropical beach goes extremely wrong in M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie.
M. Night Shyamalan is back for more mind-blogging movie madness with his latest supernatural thriller Old.
Old follows Guy (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Prisca (Vicky Krieps) and their two children Trent and Maddox (predominantly played by Alex Wolff and Thomasin McKenzie) as they go on a luxury tropical holiday.
One day, on the suggestion of the resort’s manager, they visit a nearby secluded beach with fellow holidaymakers Charles (Rufus Sewell), Chrystal (Abbey Lee), their daughter Kara (mostly Eliza Scanlen) and Charles’ mother Agnes (Kathleen Chalfant).
They soon realise there is something very wrong with the beach – it causes them to age rapidly over a few hours, compressing their entire lives into a single day.
The film has a unique and exciting concept, but sadly, the execution of the idea was very poor and the ending was unsatisfying and almost undoes all the positives that had come before.
The biggest problem...
