For all of Old‘s flaws - and those flaws are bounteous! - it’s a film with energy; a film with life.

The possibilities are rich. But Old is just dumb.

Old is campy, poorly written, candy-colored and (as) subtle as Eurovision. I was glued to every single second of it.

Is the central hook in Old enough? For many, I suspect, the answer will be not quite.

This supernatural thriller has a wild conceit... and every creaky device to hand gets thrown in to keep it going...

Even the impressive direction can’t distract from the silly story and offbeat tone.

The movie, and I don't think I'm over- or under-selling this, is pure chaos.

(Shyamalan) seems more concerned with avoiding any potential plot holes than creating wonder...

A decent-enough thriller, intriguing in the moment but ultimately too timid to say anything meaningful about ageing.

Uncomfortable as certain aspects may be, the film itself is refreshingly unique.

A silly, well-acted piece of schlock that offers a decent time at the movies...

Old is... in its most intense moments, one of (Shyamalan's) most genuinely disturbing visions...

(Old) doesn’t age into its potential.

Old is, at times, clumsy and obvious, but it’s different and weird, and it taps into something essential.

It's a good premise, but the director doesn't explore it so much as he throws ideas against the wall.

(Old is) brilliantly poised between serious and silly.

Ultimately Old can’t escape the goofiness of its premise long enough to put its more poetic possibilities across successfully.

While Shyamalan is often cited for his tricky endings, it’s arguable that he doesn’t quite stick the landing with this one.
