The Sixth Sense is one of those movies that seems to really stand up to the test of time. Even rewatching the M. Night Shyamalan movie almost 10 years after its blockbuster debut, the characters are still strong and the overall storytelling just shines.

The movie focuses on two people, Dr. Malcom Crowe (Bruce Willis), a revered psychologist, and a young boy, Cole (Haley Joel Osment) who seems to be acting out in school. Crowe starts working with the boy, trying to gain his trust and trying to find out why Cole is misbehaving. After quite some time, Cole confesses to Malcom that he can see dead people and all of the problems he keeps getting into are related to them. He claims that ghosts are all around us, and they scare him a lot, all the time. Of course Malcom believes these visions of Cole's are a part of his psychosis and starts to consider serious treatment... that is until he starts to link Cole's story to a case he had many years prior.

Meanwhile, Malcom's own personal life isn't doing all that hot either. Over the past year, he and his wife (Olivia Williams) have been growing further and further apart, and Malcom is even starting to suspect his wife is cheating on him. As hard as he tries, he can't seem to mend the rift that has come between them, but maybe, by helping Cole, Malcom will finally understand what has happened to their marriage.

For those readers who have already seen this movie and know the shocking twist that really put M. Night Shyamalan's name out there as a great writer, then seeing it again makes the movie a whole new experience. If you haven't had the chance to re-watch it, then you should definitely make the time because it really does feel like a whole new movie and you won't believe how you could have missed the clues.

As for special features, there isn't really anything new on this release than previous ones (maybe we will see some retrospectives in a 10-year anniversary version). The disc contains the hints and clues featurette that points out all the times the film basically throws the truth in your face, as well as deleted scenes and interviews with the cast and crew taken during or shortly after the production of The Sixth Sense. Another interesting featurette is "Between Two Worlds" where the cast and crew get together to talk about this particular ghost-story dramatic sub-genre, and we get to explore other movies like Ghost.

This really is a stellar movie, and if you somehow haven't seen it, then this is a great opportunity. While the Blu-ray doesn't really have any extra special features (above and beyond what the normal DVD has, that is), its picture is supremely crisp and a beauty. So, while The Sixth Sense might not be a movie to buy a Blu-ray player for, if you already have one, then you might want to shell out the extra bucks to see this film in hi-def glory.
