6 Souls Plot Synopsis:

After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding's faith in God has been shaken, but not her belief in science. In an attempt to get her more open to accepting unexplainable psychiatric theories, her father introduces her to Adam, a patient with multiple personalities who also takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. But Cara quickly discovers that his other personalities were murder victims and the more she finds out about Adam and his past, the closer she and her loved ones are to becoming murder victims themselves.

6 Souls (2010) Review

6 Souls is basically about faith. I like this movie and thought it was well written and could have been executed better. It did make me think of the possibilities of someone having 6 different personalities and what they can do and accomplish with it, whether it is bad or good. Directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein did not do such a great job with 6 Souls but it is a nice movie to watch. I think this movie would of been way better if there was only one director. 6 Souls contains scares, chills, suspense, fear, religion, faith, gross scenes, lots of deaths and jump scenes.

The first 30 minutes of 6 Souls is slow but you will be reeled into the rest of the movie. Julianne Moore (Carrie, Don Jon, What Maisie Knew, The Kids Are All Right) was just plain incredible in this movie. I love her character, Cara Harding who is a psychiatrist that doesn’t believe in multiple personalities. She thinks that people use multiple personalities as an excuse to get out of murders and other situations they don’t want to be faced with. Cara’s father, Dr. Harding (Jeffrey DeMunn - Around the Block, Cayman Went, Burn After Reading) introduced her to Adam (Jonathan Rhys Meyers - From Paris with Love, A Film with Me in It, The Children of Huang Shi) who is a patient with many different personalities. Jonathan Rhys Meyers also did a great acting job in 6 Souls. He played different personalities/characters in an amazingly believing way. It did not show in anyway that he was acting or struggling with his different characters. He had several personalities that are from people that were murdered.

Dr. Cara is intrigued by David/Adam/Wesley and starts to investigate how he is connected to all the murder victims personalities that he has. 6 Souls slowly turns into a supernatural movie. 6 Souls had some loose plots, the story supposedly took place in modern time but yet Cara drives across town to do things that she could of done over the phone. As Cara investigates the multiple personalities, death comes closer to her family. I got emotionally tied to this movie when her little girl was hurt. I love the ending of the movie when Cara avenges her love ones deaths.

Overall, 6 Souls is a nice watch if you have an open mind and don’t expect much from the movie. Don’t get me wrong, the movie does have some pretty good scene but it could have been better for a movie that is almost two hours long. The story does have a lot of loose ends but all in all, it was a pretty good movie for me.
