Shape-shifting performance from James McAvoy // Brisbane Times Ipswich

But all talk of anticipated returns to form aside (there’s no doubt the same question will be cast wherever he goes next) the director’s latest Split is another blissfully labyrinthian tale. The film’s a worthy enough watch even just for James McAvoy’s (actually) shape-shifting performance as Kevin, a man with dissociative identity disorder, and possesses 23 separate personalities that include a 9-year-old boy, a middle-aged man, and a older woman. The 24th is about to emerge, and is only known as ‘The Beast’ – a bigger, stronger creation who also has a taste for human flesh.
