The Happening

The Happening didn’t look too bad in the TV trailers so I and Julia went to see it. The start is pretty interesting and mystical but somehow the movie can’t keep that up until the end. The concept isn’t new, but not yet worn off. It reminds a lot of Frank Schätzings novel The Swarm. Anyone who likes the thought of nature striking back or the planet saving itself from mankind, read this book. There are nice shocking moments and nice fear generating scenes that makes you feel with the characters but in the end, it’s ruined by some pseudo-romantical scenes and not very believable details. 5/10
