It's ok.  I originally didn't see it when it first came out and I saw The Others first which has basically the same reveal.  After that the plot was spoiled and I'll always se The Others as the superior movie. 

As far as M Night's movies go, the Unbreakable trilogy are his three best.

9/10. Great movie with a nice foreboding atmosphere. One of the few movies where a child co-star actually carries his weight. I think the first rewatch is also a lot of fun just because everything seems so damn obvious. Shyamalan's best movie by a wide margin.

Yeah, I agree that it is cool to do a 2nd watch to see how the twist worked... enjoyable in a different way. I also liked the atmosphere in that movie.

Upon my first time watching it is easily say it's a 10 and one of my favorite movies of all time. However the movie severely loses its appeal after the first viewing. Those that have seen it know why. But even so the movie should be watched by everyone once. So I give it a 9.

There's a related Mandela Effect from Scary Movie where people remember Marlon Wayans saying "I see white people" instead of "I see dead people". Which do you guys remember?

The Sixth Sense probably needs a rewatch for me to rate it. I remember the twist and that's about it. I'm not even sure if I've ever watched the whole thing from beginning to end.

As I mentioned earlier, I didn't care for it, but for those who did, I'm surprised most have said that it didn't have much rewatch value.  If you enjoyed the movie, I would think you would want to rewatch it to look for the hints throughout the movie.  When it comes to movies with great twists, I tend to want to watch them again.  This particular movie just didn't work for me.

I think the first rewatch is great. It gets a bit less enjoyable on repeat viewings after that, although from a purely filmmaking perspective, there's a lot to appreciate.

Oh, I don't doubt that one bit.  I was just surprised how many people who viewed the movie favorably were happy with only a single viewing.  

As a comparison, The Prestige was the first movie I ever watched, where I wanted to start the movie over and watch it again the very second it was over.

I couldn’t find the Scary Movie line. The only clip I was able to find was from Undercover Brother.
