This was the role that Nicholson was born for. He was perfect for it. I would have liked for the spirits to have done more evil than just speaking with Nicholson's character. The movie never explains if Danny's imaginary friend was really just that or a spirit that possessed in. Maybe the book went into greater detail on this but I have never read it so I'm not sure of the answer. Overall not bad but it still left me a little disappointed considering it's reputation. 5.5/10
