    I haven't been so captivated, chilled and surprised by a movie in years.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    The 11-year-old Osment evokes the boy's terror and awful predicament so memorably, you'll never forget him.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marc Caro

    Perhaps the most startling part is the realization that, in the turn-off-your-brain season of summer, you've just experienced an uncommonly serious-minded movie that's brave enough to engage our deepest emotions on issues of death, madness, illusion and forgiveness. That's the biggest thrill of them all.

  • Rod Dreher

    (Osment) delivers what may be the greatest performance ever by a child actor.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    An unnerving and astonishing thriller.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    The filmmaker keeps upping the ante with surprises until the plot-twist beaut that concludes the picture - a shocker that, upon reflection, is probably the one ending that wouldn't have fallen a little flat.

  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    It's a psychological thriller that actually thrills.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • John Patterson

    Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan lets the tension rise slowly, leads you everywhere you don't expect, doesn't rip you off and totally freaks you out -- all without stale effects or gore.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Teeters on the brink of New Age ludicrousness, but it never goes over: Like Kieslowski and others, Shyamalan knows that what makes for lousy metaphysics can make for powerful metaphor, and in the end he creates a deeply, surprisingly affecting film out of a little bit of smoke and brimstone.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • John Anderson

    So disarmingly eerie it's virtually guaranteed to rattle the most jaded of cages.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Eventually writer-director M. Night Shyamalan neutralizes Willis's star presence with impressive plotting that's a fine excuse for the powerful atmosphere.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Works best when it works its mournful magic alone, without fanfare, using only the flickering fear in Cole's gaze as it meets the compassion in Crowe's.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Has a kind of calm, sneaky self-confidence that allows it to take us down a strange path, intriguingly.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    If this isn't the single best performance ever by a preadolescent male (Osment) in a motion picture, then it's tied for whatever is first.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Ultimately affecting mix 'n' match weeper.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Diana Abu-Jaber

    Sometimes verges on silliness.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Walaika Haskins

    Although the film occasionally descends into mawkishness, Shyamalan is skilled at bringing the tension to excruciating heights.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Ultimately, it has less in common with "Blair Witch" than with such quivering lumps of sentiment as "Ghost" and Field of Dreams."

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Schickel

    Unfolds with a patient intelligence. The Sixth Sense might not scare you out of your wits, but it could reward them.

    Time Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    It's like an enema to the soul as it probes the ways of death ? some especially grotesque in a family setting. You leave slightly asquirm. You know it will linger.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    A metaphysical shaggy-dog story, whose unpredictable punchline is its only redeeming feature.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Borderline dull to sit through, The Sixth Sense is actually rather interesting to think about afterward because of the revelation of its ending.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The thriller's best and worst features all stem from a highly unusual plot structure that builds to a genuinely startling conclusion.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jeff Gray

    At least tries to disturb us, rather than shock us or gross us out, and that is admirable. But it doesn't pull it off, and the movie is indicative of the trouble Hollywood has these days making that most frightening kind of movie -- the kind that lets the audience frighten itself.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Complain all you want about Willis's posturing and the rabbit-in-the-hat ending (predicated as it is on a vast plothole), the film is still a rarity, a studio horror movie focused on a child's traumatic stress.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Bill Gallo

    The flashy sensationalism of The Sixth Sense -- maybe the best thing about it -- is at war with its desire for contemplation.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Buried deep inside this ponderous, repetitive psychological thriller is a fantastic half-hour "Twilight Zone" episode.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    An inferior product. It is not well written, well acted, or well directed.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Kevin Maynard

    The biggest piece of supernatural hooey since estranged wife Demi Moore's "The Seventh Sign."

    Mr. Showbiz Full Review
  • Charles Taylor

    Because the movie never fully engages us, it never quite manages to allay our queasiness about watching the boy's distress. Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Because it unfolds like a garish hybrid of Simon Birch and What Dreams May Come, with some horror-movie touches thrown in to keep us from nodding off, "The Sixth Sense" appears to have been concocted at exactly the moment Hollywood was betting on supernatural schmaltz.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Matt Kelsey

    Willis puts his action-hero stereotype on the back burner to deliver one of his most intriguing roles since "12 Monkeys."
