The Happening


1 star (R) Mark Wahlberg

Imagine “The Birds” without birds. Bad idea, right? M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense,” “The Village,” “Lady in the Water”) offers a hapless thriller about a father (Mark Wahlberg) trying to escape with his family after an apocalyptic event. Zooey Deschanel and John Leguizamo costar. The film is poorly assembled and acted. It isn't scary. It isn't emotionally engaging. It isn't much of anything. Shyamalan has put together a thriller without thrills. 91 minutes. DVD INFO: The regular edition includes an hour (!!) of deleted scenes, a gag reel and featurettes.
