I think that the ending of the movie, The Village can be summed up in one short phrase. Here it is: "What the f--". You can fill in the
blank. I swear...it's almost like (pretend that this was filmed in sequential order for a minute) shyamalan decided he needed to go on vacation, and
told his staff, "Ok, I'm going on vacation for a couple of weeks...don't touch anything, ok?" When he got back...this is what was out. Horrible.
I mean I thought it was a good movie...until the ending when I realized it was quite possibly the worst ending I've ever seen. So many things were
wrong with this ending it made me thank God that I got in free (I work at the movie theatre). I couldn't believe it; they even gave him a chance to
fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After Ivy's father had told her that the monsters were fake, and she was in the woods having the face off with the,
"Monster" which was really just Noah who somehow, even though he was retarded, managed to get that costume on, claw through the wood in the floor,
and somehow track her down even though she'd been traveling the whole day, they could have at least made it so that the monsters really were real,
and the elders of the town were wrong. And what was the significance of pretending that it was in the 1800's? Because they wanted them to know that
technology wasn't invented yet? But..if they didn't even KNOW of technology...it doesn't matter what date it is!!! This world is all they've
ever known...who cares if they knew it was the 21st century. Good god...
