"The Sixth Sense" has got to be one of the most over-rated and utterly preposterous psychological Thrillers that I have ever seen.

Of course, right from the start the film was pretty much ruined by the unwelcome presence of Bruce Willis, whose performance, alone, actually managed to drag this film's story down by at least a few good notches.

But the thing that completely ruined "The Sixth Sense" for me was the "surprise" twist ending.

No. I'm sorry. This film tried way too hard to pass itself off as being something so utterly clever and ingenious, but it wasn't anything like that, at all. It was just plain demented if you really stop and think about it.

The Sixth Sense is a very suspenseful, yet interesting film. It stars Bruce Willis who is one of the main characters. This film is very unique and entertaining. It's kind of like a thriller, but not that scary. It's not at all like the other horror movies that came out, and that's what makes the film so unique! It has a very interesting story, with lots of plot twists along the way. If you've never seen the movie before, you're definitely in for a ride! Personally, this is one of my all time favourite movies. I recommend this film toanyone intrested in scary movies, and j give this 5/5. @Gummibee11 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I enjoyed this movie. Good acting by Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment.

I enjoyed this movie. I had to watch it twice. I like watching "M. Night Shyamalan" movies. He puts a twist in each film.

When I see and hear the ring fall to the floor in a scene, I realize something is wrong and out of ordinary, perhaps a bit sinister. This film is good in the way it gives little non-obvious hints all along.

An idiotic "I see dead people" movie, starring one of the most despicable, no-talent actors of all-time, Bruce Willis.

Great movie. One of the directors best.

It's been over 18 years or so since this movie has been released....and I just watched it's still just as good as when I first saw it 18 years ago. Timeless!

This is a winner one of the best movies I have watched. Wow was it ever emotional at the end, I had tears in my eyes. Today was the 3rd time I watched it and it was as good today as the first time. This is a movie that takes paying attention to so you will know what is going on and add to your entertainment. When the movie ended I watched the additional information on how the movie was made and found the additional information worthwhile. Warning if you are used to the newer action packed movies the ones you don't have to think and pay attention to then you might find a movie like this difficult and challenging because you do have to pay attention and listen to get the full impact of the movie. I understand and realize over years movies have changed as have the audience. Many of the young people today have not developed the necessary attention span to be appreciative of movies that take a while to develop a worthwhile plot.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Intense jump scares, gruesome imagery and scary concepts.

Violence: Mild since most of the ghosts are already dead. But flashbacks do occur and can be very violent.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The sixth sense means seeing dead people, and here the dead appear exactly as they did in the moment of their death. This makes for some gruesome and frightening scenes.

Cole Sear: I see dead people.

Malcolm Crowe: In your dreams?

[Cole shakes his head no]

Malcolm Crowe: While you're awake?

[Cole nods]

Malcolm Crowe: Dead people like, in graves? In coffins?

Cole Sear: Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're dead.

Malcolm Crowe: How often do you see them?

Cole Sear: All the time. They're everywhere.
