Knock at the Cabin might be one of the best looking M. Knight Shyamalan movies from a cinematic points. It has all of the things that should make this a great film. The cast works really well with what they're given. The problem is, this movie doesn't have the M. Knight Shyamalan twist and flair that is really needed for this film. It's a shocking disappointment. This isn't a bad film at all. But it's feels like something that was perfectly made for an adaptation by M. Knight but is missing something. What we get is a pretty film with solid acting that just feeling shallow.
