DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - Only the most patient viewers--namely older adults--will completely enjoy this talky thriller. The film's conclusion may go a long way in pleasing audiences, but it's slow-going before then. The film is too intense for children, who would be largely bored. Those looking for traditional scares should look elsewhere.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
If a movie is only as good as its ending, then The Sixth Sense, with its boffo, perception-altering shock of a conclusion, should be one of the best thrillers in recent years. But that closing stroke of genius cannot add a much-needed layer of interest and inspiration to the talky tale of a psychic child that serves as the twist's slow-going lead-in.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

In this chilling psychological thriller, eight-year-old Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment) is haunted by a dark secret: He is visited by ghosts. A helpless and reluctant channel, Cole is terrified by threatening visitations from those with unresolved problems who appear from the shadows. Confused by his paranormal powers, Cole is too young to understand his purpose and too terrified to tell anyone about his torment, except child psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis). As Dr. Crowe tries to uncover the ominous truth about Cole's supernatural abilities, the consequence for client and therapist is a jolt that awakens them both to something harrowing -- and unexplainable.
