    "M. Night Shyamalan is a talented hack despite his flops like The Last Airbender, Lady in the Water, The Happening and After Earth. He is very addicted to plot twist but he only used it perfectly on classics like Unbreakable and The Sixth Sense. Unlike his preceding flops, The Sixth Sense has very good pacing, carefully landing the plot twist at the right moment. Quoting his caricature's line in Robot Chicken, "What a Twist!""

    "The Sixth Sense was first released in 2008 and continues to send chills up the spine to anyone watching this film. The concepts of the after life and connections between the living and the dead set the stage and gnaw at your own fears of mortality and what may have caused you to tremble in the dark as a child."

    "Well, I don't see dead people but the boy in this movie does. And. It. Is. Creepy. Not in the way your typical scary movie though. The Sixth Sense has a twist that you wouldn't have guessed if you watched it for the first time. Good movie. One of the best in '99."

    "Oh M. Night Shyamalan, you're a hack. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it sucks so bad. The 90s was his best era compared to the late 00s stinkers like The Last Airbender, Lady in the Water and After Earth. I hope his next new film will not be terrible."

    "I often wonder if Willis' carector or the boy is the protagonist in this story. I can say that this was a great movie and I think it was ahead of it's time and that is why so many people had their minds blown when they found out that Willis was dead."

    "This movie is a classic example of the type of movie I was looking for. A main character who dies early on in the film and the story is built around that. It's a twist at the end, so you don't know it for most of the movie, but it counts."

    "To say The Sixth Sense is a good psychological thriller movie is bad. I would not say this is one of the best at all. If you just Google it, you will get way better results. Whoever said this probably hasn't seen very many good movies."
