While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being. Though Kevin has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher, there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him - as well as everyone around him - as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

This is Holly, I'm 15 and I was looking forward to seeing Split, and I was not let down. I had heard mixed reviews about it, but overall I found it very well done. It had the right amount of suspense and wasn't dorky or cliche in any way, like most scary movies. At some points it did move a little bit slow but not for very long. James McAvoy did an excellent job portraying his many characters, and was perfect for the part. 

The ending leaves plenty of room for there to be a sequel in the future, which I would definitely be interested in seeing. Overall, I thought the movie was very well done, had a good, solid, story line, phenomenal actors...
