The ending by far was my favorite when there all sitting at the table talking.
And the Twist everyone is talking about might not even be a twist at all.
There were so many great scenes like Vito when he was younger, Fredo at the lake, and many many more. You have to see this movie because it's just brilliant filmaking. It's not better than it's first film but still an extremely worth sequel.

A twist, to me, changes your understanding of the story up until that point. Someone is secretly a man. What you thought was true was not true. I think in order to qualify as a Twist, there would have to be more connection between the films. I think the only way it does is if you posit this as the start of an Avengers-esque shared universe. But later in the movie, as part of his preparations for the coming of the Beast, McAvoy buys a bouquet of flowers and leaves them at the Amtrak train platform, and then hides inside an empty train car to transform.
Now consider how Unbreakable begins: Jackson about how this could be totally based in science. Split does much the same thing. We end up with a guy who can transform into a malevolent Hulk before our eyes, but only after hearing his psychiatrist lecture the University of Paris about the brain chemistry behind it all. If that sequel happens, we just watched an entire movie setting up an antagonist for Bruce Willis without realizing it. I do think that Matt is on to something, which is that the twist works at primarily at a meta-textual level.
Part of this twist is about genre- the twist is that it was a horror movie masquerading as a superhero movie all along.
But another part of being a superhero movie in this day and age is being part of a cinematic universe. I find it really interesting that Shyamalan made this move, because a universe is only worth doing if people want to keep seeing these interlocking films. In general, my sense is that his use of twists has become a bit of a punchline. It was both genuinely surprising because viewers were guessing types of twists that were more like what Matt listed earlier on , and also recontextualized the types of films Shyamalan wants to be making- more Star Wars and Marvel than old Shyamalan.
And the biggest twist of all is that it worked! Night Shyamalan movie in I have Split feelings about this movie. One of the first things McAvoy does is try to undress one of them, but then another one of his personalities intervenes and apologizes. But one of the teenagers is different. And then sure enough, the final act just happens to give her a shotgun. Logic would dictate that she fight back against her tormenter, which would not only be dramatically satisfying in a classic horror movie way but kind of necessary to her character arc, which is all about her feeling powerless her whole life.
But instead, her attacker is way too strong and she actually IS powerless. McAvoy views his own story that way; he was broken, and it made him mighty.

In any case, the impression I got is that Casey is out of the frying pan, into the fire. But assuming that I just missed the subtext, I like that ending better. But do we want that movie?

I feel like everyone is just taking for granted that sequels and crossovers are always exciting fun. This movie would give us two characters we already know, with well-defined rules, and have them punch each other in the face for a while. He could also make a sequel to the Sixth Sense where grown-up Haley Joel Osment solves the problems of a series of ghosts. Even though literally everyone in America knew that the kid sees dead people it was in the trailer! We already got that story. So look, after years of being a punchline see this Overthinking It article where I gleefully root for his downfall , M.
Night Shyamalan is back on top, making successful, interesting thrillers.
Holy Shit, That 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter' Twist Was Huge! - Bloody Disgusting
And one thing I will say for Shyamalan is that even when he failed Lady in the Water , he was always trying to tell a new story. Speculating about what the Star Wars prequels would be was way more fun than actually watching them. Trying to figure out what Stokes would say about the last episode of Cowboy Bebop https: Wait…That is a lie.
Everything Stokes wrote about Cowboy Bebop was great! But you get what I am saying. Speculating about future pop culture is almost as fun as overthinking existing pop culture. Does can a bad ultimate product ruin the fun of speculating about what that product could have been? Does speculation have to be abandoned after the product is released? I would say that to some degree fan-fiction is speculation about a non-existent bit of pop culture, that thrives and flourishes, even though there is no way anyone is going to make a movie where Draco and Snape a gay lovers.

My old Blockbuster coworkers and I were talking about there seem to single-idea filmgoers, just as there are frustrating single-issue voters in the electorate. There are a number of people complaining about Split because of the twist involving the Beast. Their complaints are essentially: It strikes me as so limiting that people ostensibly want a narrative to be surprising, but not TOO surprising, even when the filmmaker goes to great lengths to set-up the surprise.
