THE HAPPENING (Theatrical Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.0|5.0 Starsììì

The Happening—unclear of its plotline and how its characters should be developedgoes all over the place with no real answers presented at its conclusion. Everything ends with loose ends. The most interesting character in the movie is Frank Collison despite the presence of Mark Wahlberg.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Because the movie cannot be tracked well it may serve as background scenery at parties if for nothing else than to see Mark Wahlberg on screen.
