THE SIXTH SENSE (Theatrical Release USA 1999)

Ben Meyers’ rating—4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

The Sixth Sense bears the unmistakable M. Night Shyamalan hallmark from its suspenseful beginning to its astonishing ending. The supernatural thriller casts Bruce Willis with the highly talented Haley Joel Osment  to create a film that audiences will not soon forget.

Storyline

Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis), a child psychologist, has just received his first award for his work in child psychology. When he comes home he is confronted with an older version of a child he had once treated, Vincent Grey (Donnie Wahlberg), who shoots Dr. Malcolm Crowe and then commits suicide. A year later, an apparently recovered Dr. Crowe reviews the records of Cole Sear (Hayley Joel Osment), a young boy who apparently has similar challenges as Vincent Grey. Dr. Crowe talks with Cole and the story is on as Dr. Crowe attempts to be a better listener and believer in what a child patient tells him.
