After a birthday party in a mall, the teenager Casey Cooke (Anya Taylor-Joy), Claire Benoit (Haley Lu Richardson) and Marcia (Jessica Sula) are abducted by a man (James McAvoy). Soon they learn that the man has DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) with several personalities. His psychologist Dr. Karen Fletcher (Betty Buckley) is aware of his personalities but does not suspect that he is the kidnapper of the three girls. Casey, who has been abused by her Uncle John (Brad William Henke) since she was a kid, tries to manipulate the weakest personalities to escape. But the problem is that the strong personality The Beast is quite unleashed and is coming.
"Split" is another annoying and silly film by the mediocre and overrated M. Night Shyamalan. This director / writer made success with the rip-off of "Haunted" (1995) and now uses the concept of the masterpiece "Identity" (2003) to make "Split". James McAvoy's character is not scary but laughable and ridiculous. The psychologist is absolutely incompetent and only Casey Cooke is a promising character wasted by the terrible screenplay. The conclusion is maybe the worst part of this forgettable film. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Fragmentado" ("Shattered")
