Mark Wahlberg stars as a man who takes his family on the run when a natural disaster threatens to end civilization. For years, the earth has been the victim of mankind's "progress," and the pollution has finally built to a point that causes a global backlash. An invisible neurotoxin is released into the air making the people in Philadelphia go crazy and kill themselves. The Happening is a paranoid thrill ride through this large-scale, cataclysmic environmental crisis that turns into a struggle by mankind to overcome nature.

    While Lady in the Water isn’t horrible, you think THAT film is better than this? The only thing wrong with The Happening is cringe acting, which, is kind of funny. The plot was amazing! But, Lady in the Water is a MESS. The plot was messed up, and Bryce’s character was boring. Yes, it was a mysterious and spiritual movie, but you got to admit, it was very strange. At least The Happening was built on solid ground.
  • What a horrible movie don't watch it

    Okay..... The Happening was painful more painful then after earth. M. Night Shamaylan needs to quit directing movies because he is setting the bar lower, lower and lower. The Happening is confusing and poorly acted in it's own atomsphere. The characters in the movie even with Mark Wahlberg who is terrible in this film are barley unlikable. Don't watch this it's the worst movies ever made.
  • Hilarious

    Oh don't get me wrong, it's a HORRIBLE movie. But if you know going in to look at it as a comedy, it's actually hilarious. The acting, writing, and story are SO bad, it's a movie you have to see to believe. It's actually hard to comprehend that a human made this. A great "so bad it's good" movie.
  • Pretty good, not my favorite.

    M. Night Shyamalan has Strange and fantastic stories and as much as I like Mark Wahlberg, I think he kind of brings the movie down a little bit not the greatest actor, but still a great story and concept!
  • The movie sucked? What? no....

    If I want to laugh at bad acting Or hear a guy talk about hot dogs I’ll switch it on
  • I enjoyed this movie. Can’t watch it anymore.

    I feel like this movie was very confusing but great because I like the acting the people and all that stuff also it’s very interesting maybe if it was quite not that confusing I’d give it a 5 but it still is fine but it’s not rated R for violent and disturbing images it’s for launguage too at some point at the movie and maybe they can make a remake if they want! Great but confusing

    Wish that there was a ZERO star selection. This is absolutley the WORST movie that I have ever taken the time to watch. Shyamalan should have to pay viewers to sit through this agony. Take your money and buy the kids something nice!!
