(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

OLD is the latest M. Night Shyamalan film. **SPOILERS** It is almost impossible to talk about an M. Night Shyamalan film without having at least some slight spoilers. In this case, it's the premise of the film--that a group of people from a tropical resort find themselves trapped on a beach where they are aging rapidly (about a year every thirty minutes). Shyamalan tries to cover all the obvious questions, but there are still some inconsistencies (for example, the children seem to mature mentally as well as physically), and the ending is not entirely satisfying. But if you've liked other M. Night Shyamalan films, you'll probably like this one.

Released theatrically 07/23/21; available on various streaming services and on DVD. Rating: +2 (-4 to +4), or 7/10.
