"There are secrets in every corner of this village. Do you not feel it? Do you not see it? "- Lucius Hunt
At first glance the village seems utterly idyllic. Villagers live harmoniously alongside bountiful fields. However this close-knit community lives with the awful knowledge of the race of menacing creatures that dwell in the woods around them. So powerful is their fear of this lurking evil that no-one ever dares venture outside the village's borders.
Despite the advice of his elders, the free spirited Lucius Hunt (Joaquin Phoenix) has a burning desire to step beyond the boundaries of the town into the unknown. The town leader, Edward Walker (William Hurt) and his mother, Alice Hunt (Sigourney Weaver) both order him to stay at home and conquer his curiosity.
But when Lucius finds himself competing with the mischievous Noah Percy (Adrien Brody) for the affections of the beautiful Ivy Walker (Bryce Dallas Howard), he is driven to break the taboo and enter the woods.
Little does he know that his actions will unleash a tide of chaos on his home and end the truce between the village and the creatures forever.
What the critics are saying:
"The Village does require faith; you must commit to it. Go in with a snide attitude, desperate to see The Sixth Sense director fail, and you'll leave with your prejudices underpinned."- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film"In crafting a film about the ways fear can manipulate -- are there really creatures of mass destruction in the woods? -- Shyamalan gives the film a metaphorical weight that goes deeper than goose bumps."- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone"The Village is a colossal miscalculation, a movie based on a premise that cannot support it, a premise so transparent it would be laughable were the movie not so deadly solemn."- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
