There are a few reasons why Split is the perfect title for the new M. Night Shyamalan movie. The most obvious one is the fact it's about a man with multiple split personalities who kidnaps three young girls. The other is that the movie itself is split: 98 per cent of the movie is a good Shyamalan film, which is its own pleasant surprise. But the final 2 per cent is "Oh my God. OH MY GOD."

A tale of scientists creating a monster isn't quite a tale as old as time, but it is a familiar one. Director Luke Scott -- second-unit director on father Ridley's The Martian and Exodus: Gods and Kings -- uses his expertise to turn Morgan into a gorgeously shot film, but unfortunately it's one that doesn't break much new ground with its story.

Video: In 2015, M. Night Shyamalan released his best film in years, found-footage nightmare The Visit. He returns to a conventional style with Split, which may or may not delve into the supernatural, but definitely flirts with some very weird science. It also has a killer cast; James McAvoy alone gets to play 24 different characters.
