Without further ado, ten films directed by Shyamalan Sr., ordered, as we said, from best to worst.

Sixth Sense (1999)

Cole is not having fun. He is a boy (Haley Joel Osment) who lives with his mother (the Australian Toni Collette) and who communicates with… spirits. Obviously he needs help and ends up in the hands of child psychologist Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis). The film coined the famous phrase “I see dead people,” which Cole tells his psychologist. The famous twist (in truth, you can sense it from the beginning) made it a resounding success. In 1999, the films were slow to reach VHS or DVD, and many returned to seeing them in theaters. It cost just $40 million to make and grossed $672,806,432 worldwide. Nominated for 6 Oscars, including film, direction, screenplay and supporting actors (Bruce, out). Shyamalan’s best film? Shyamalan’s best film.

Fragmented (2016)

Only at the end of the screening – like so many things that Shyamalan likes to reveal there, at the end of the main course – did we realize the connection that James McAvoy’s character had with other of Shyamalan’s previous films, which we will not reveal later. in case you haven’t seen it. Dennis has 24 personalities and one of them kidnaps three girls, including “our” Anya Taylor-Joy. The film chronicles Casey’s (Taylor-Joy) journey as she tries to escape. Shyamalan was in stasis when he filmed Fragmented. His budget was minimal ($9 million) and in the end he raised $278,454,417.

Indestructible (2000)

Fast and to the touch. Almost immediately afterwards Sixth Sense, Shyamalan wrote and directed this film, which also starred Bruce Willis. It’s David Dunn, who takes a train from New York to return to Philadelphia, after an unsuccessful job interview, and the train derails and crashes. David is the only survivor. Amazingly, David is not only alive, but appears to be barely injured. He meets a stranger, Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson), who explains to David that there are a certain number of people who are “indestructible.” There are a lot of comics in the film, which cost $75 million to make and grossed $248,118,121.

Shyamalan was in trouble and made "The Guest" for only $5 million.  And he is thereShyamalan was in trouble and made “The Guest” for only $5 million. And he hit her.

The Guests (2015)

The career of Shyamalan, born in India and living in Philadelphia, where if it were up to him he would have directed all his films, has had its ups and downs. Before The guests had debuted After Earth, with Will Smith, a resounding failure, because that film’s budget of 130 million dollars reached 5 million dollars… Two little brothers begin to get restless when they go to visit their grandparents on holiday. Yes, the twist is seen as soon as the screening begins, but for those who haven’t noticed, it’s another Shyamalan-style film. Nearly $100 million raised worldwide: agreement.

Launch.  Joaquin Phoenix, Mel Gibson, Cherry Jones ("24") and Rory Culkin.Launch. Joaquin Phoenix, Mel Gibson, Cherry Jones (“24”) and Rory Culkin.

Signs (2002)

The writer and producer continued his good fortune when he hired him Mel Gibsona real star of the time, I add Joaquin Phoenix, Rory Culkin (brother of the actor of My poor angel) and Abigail Breslin as members of a farming family, who discover mysterious circles in their fields, suggesting that something terrifying is about to happen.

As always, Shyamalan gave him a small role, here more important than the others. The disappointment is how the alien is made, but the result is still very good. The 72 million dollars invested multiplied, reaching 408,247,917 at the global box office.

All three: Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy and Bruce Willis.All three: Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy and Bruce Willis.

Glass (2019)

Here we are already at an intermediate point of the list. After FragmentedIt took Shyamalan three years to make glasswhich takes up the character of James McAvoy and adds two very well-known characters to the cast: Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson… who repeat their roles as He protectedO. So David Gunn, a security guard with supernatural powers, tries to find Dennis, the deranged man with 24 personalities. If later Sixth Sense he was sent away with one almost as good The protected, glass It was a little disappointing.

Because if you want disappointment, we’ll start there shortly.

The Village (2004)

Shyamalan had the halo of King Midas, so for this film they gave him all the actors he asked for. The horror film stars stars such as Sigourney Weaver, William Hurt, Adrien Brody, Joaquin Phoenix and Bryce Dallas Howard, all inhabitants of a small rural village, isolated from the rest. When the strangest events start to happen, we already know what can happen. Or not. It cost a respectable $60 million and grossed $256,697,520.

The Lady in the Water (2006)

Completely misunderstood – and it wasn’t even a masterpiece – was this almost fabulous tale starring today’s Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti and Bryce Dallas Howard. The actor of Those who remain he checks out a building and rescues what he believes is a woman in the pool. But Story, her name, is a character in a story, and Cleveland will try to protect her with the help of her neighbors. At the beginning of the Shyamalan debacle, she barely managed to recoup the $70 million she invested.

The End of Times (2008)

Mark Wahlberg Talks to a Plastic Factory... About Shyamalan's Worst Thing.Mark Wahlberg Talks to a Plastic Factory… About Shyamalan’s Worst Thing.

These two films seriously compete as to which director is worse Sixth Sense. The beginning is the only promising thing about the film, when we see dozens of human beings jumping from buildings. The images shock because of the unexpected. The problem is the following. What is going on? It seems – we will find out much later – that a plague induces those infected by it to commit suicide. The scene where Mark Wahlberg’s science teacher talks (and sings) to a plastic plant is the most ridiculous thing Shyamalan has ever done.

But no, the worst is yet to come.

Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith starred in this sci-fi film, the most ridiculous thing directed by Shyamalan.Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith starred in this sci-fi film, the most ridiculous thing directed by Shyamalan.

After Earth (2013)

Will Smith and his son Jaden (yes, the one from the remake of Karate Kid) they play a father and son, who suffer a forced landing and remain trapped on Earth, 1,000 years after a cataclysm forced humanity to abandon the planet. In truth, they suffer, trapped by a script (co-written by the director and Will Smith) without identity, with Kitai seeking help (where?) when his father Cypher is seriously injured. In the United States it raised 60 million dollars, something like 70 million less than it cost.
