It's a shame he set the bar so high simply by including an incredible twist in Sixth Sense (not even his first movie) and then had such a mediocre one at the end of The Village (though I liked the earlier twist involving the final creature from the forest) that people can only peg him as a certain type of story teller based on less than half of his output.
Well, almost. He did two consecutive movies with strong twist endings, The Sixth Sense
. It was that repetition that created the myth that "all Shyamalan films have twist endings," even though you're quite correct that it's not really true.
