Lady in the Water director M. Night Shyamalan puts PG-13 suspense on pause to tell this grim apocalyptic tale about a family fleeing a natural disaster that poses a grave threat to the whole of humanity. Philadelphia high-school science teacher Elliot Moore (Mark Wahlberg) is discussing the disappearance of the bees with his students when the staff is summoned to the theater and briefed about a mysterious event that is currently unfolding in New York City. According to reports, citizens in the vicinity of Central Park have suddenly and inexplicably begun seizing up just before killing themselves by whatever means are at their disposal. As the phenomena begins to spread and talk of terrorism fills the airwaves, Elliot, his wife, Alma (Zooey Deschanel), their friend Julian (John Leguizamo), and his daughter, Jess (Ashlyn Sanchez), board a train bound for the presumed safety of the country. When the train screeches to a halt before arriving at its final destination, however, the frightened passengers are forced to fend for themselves as each consecutive news report paints an increasingly grim picture of the situation in more urbanized areas. Theories abound on what could be causing the unexplainable rash of suicides, but the only thing that everyone seems to agree on is that it's some kind of airborne contagion that is carried in the wind. It would appear that humankind's reign on planet Earth has come to an end, but perhaps if this small band of survivors can find a safe place to lie low until this all blows over, all hope for survival of the species might not be lost just yet. Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I was totally let down by the movie. The story line and plot seemed like it would make a great horror movie, but the acting slaughtered it. The main character is a too generic representation of the hero and foreseer, the little girl was horrible with the little acting she did, and the killing of the two boys was completely superfluous to the movie and the execution was completely talentless. Oh, and there was also the classic "Hey guys?....... Nothin" attempt at a warning. How flippin' generic is that. Good plot, horrible acting, horrible script, horrible movie.

From bad to worse
This movie had some of the worst acting I have ever seen. I mean, it was truly bad! I can't completely blame the actors, though. With the line they were given, I am not even sure that Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts could have pulled this off.
Not only was the dialogue stilted and unrealistic, parts of the movie were just downright stupid. I can't get into the most ignorant scene as it would be a spoiler, but I will say that the actions of some of the characters will have you shaking your head or even pounding a chair arm, saying, "That is just stupid! No one would do that."
I gave this 2 stars instead of one simply because the premise was interesting, but you really shouldn't waste your money.
