He’s had some good ones. But he's also had some serious misses.
His latest, Split … well, it already looks problematic.
Here’s a quick rundown of the film from Universal:
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
Okay. James McAvoy is a gorgeous and a brilliant actor. And I appreciate anyone wanting to showcase his talents.
However… should we really be portraying mental illness as dangerous and something to be afraid of?
This one should be… interesting.
