His latest film The Last Airbender has been described as clunky and a disaster by some, and those are among the kinder reviews!
But M. Night Shyamalan says he has learned to turn a blind eye to his detractors, particularly the ones across the pond.
"I don't know what's going on with me and the critics in the United States. They've never got me and it's getting worse!" said the filmmaker.
Despite high praise for 1999's The Sixth Sense, which was nominated for six Academy Awards, follow-ups including The Village and Lady In The Water went down like lead balloons.
