The Movie “The Sixth Sense” is all about horror blended with drama suspense. Drama because there are emotional moments with Cole Sear (Haley Osment) and his mother (Toni Collette), and sometime frightened by the images of horrifying people is shown.

The movie started with Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis) and his wife being disturbed by a “freak” he says, he was once a patient of Malcolm and thus Malcolm never cured him, as Dr. Crowe tries to calm him down, the guy got his gone and shot Dr. Crowe and shot his head off. Dr. Crowe un realizing that he is already drop dead and he is only a spirit who is looking for the right time to go, met a boy named Cole Sear, Dr. Crowe thought that he was given a chance to prove himself again, for the boy had the same situation with the past patient who shot him.

Later then Cole trusted Malcolm and told he’s secret, that he can see dead people, the once that don’t know there dead, the one who finds justice. Dr. Crowe asked Cole to help the spirits/dead people he sees, then later on to the movie Dr. Malcolm Crowe talked with Cole. Cole suggested a way to make peace with Malcolm’s wife, Cole said Crowe must talk to her when she is asleep so she can talk to you even she doesn’t sees you. And then Malcolm came home talked to his wife sleeping and seem to be waiting for Crowe, then she whispers “why did you leave me…” and suddenly drops the wedding ring of Malcolm and , he realizes that he is dead and the only one who can see him is Cole. And that he is just a spirit waiting for something to happen. Dr. Malcolm whispers to his wife and telling how much he loves her. And it ended like this Malcolm realized his dead.

This movie values love, love because Cole’s mother is always been there for Cole for better or for worst and also because Malcolm loves his wife so much that even when he dies he wants to let his wife know how much he loves her and how much she means to him. And for the dead people who doesn’t find justice, will find justice in the right time, they stay because they want to find justice and they want to let you know that they’re always there watching at us.

These movie gave me different emotional reactions like, sadness, I cried so many times like the scene when Cole tells her mom all the things his grandma wanted to say to his mother that she watched his mothers dance and cares and loves her, there also a scene when Malcolm realizes that he already left his wife he tells how much he loves her and such. All I can say in this movie in one sentence is that, this movie gave me the emotional breakdown and a heartbreak like feeling. I mean without the good cast and their great acting it wouldn’t be much more perfect. That’s why it’s a hit for me.

The Sixth Sense is rated PG-13 for intense thematic material and violent images. And this isn’t really suitable for children. Because of its mature content, like dead images of people gross looks, something that would frightened an 10 year old. But what the heck the movie is made with a young 10 year old boy, and the movie won’t be complete w/out his acting skills. Much more than a one-trick puzzle movie… the logic holds emotionally and narrative, and Shyamalan brings satisfying closure to all his characters and their sorrows.
