    I counted 7 different shots in this film that last for at least 2 minutes each. A lot more than that come close. There's a lot of reasons why this is almost Shyamalan's best film -- even now, with a screening of Glass coming up tomorrow night, I cannot stand the ending title cards. But for me, the visual experience of this movie, and the patient Eduardo Serra cinematography, is its best feature.

    The truest exchange of dialogue in this film:

    Jaden Smith: "That sucked."

    Will Smith: "That is correct."

    The story of how that racist guy who says “I’m not racist, I have a black friend” met his black friend.

    "How did it feel, strapping that thing to your back and flying like a bat out of hell?"

    "Well, it's the closest I'll ever get to heaven, Mr. Hughes."

    What an exciting, uncynical, legitimately fun this movie still is, 22 years after the fact.
