The unexpected sequel to the unexpected sequel to FINALLY wrap up M. Night. Shalamamananan’s classic Unbreakable.
M. Night Shyamalan
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split, in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: Glass.
From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
We’ve put trailers for Unbreakable and Split below the Glass trailer. If you haven’t seen either of these two films, stop reading this, chuck the kids to bed, grab a beer and sit your arse down to watch them before you read any further!
Although not vintage Shyamalannamanan, this movie does a great job of reminding us how awesome M. Night can still be. James McAvoy is once again sublime and Samuel L. jackson is his menacing, but vulnerable best.
Like it’s predecessors, Glass is a slow builder, it’s methodical and like other M. Night films, it’ll take your brain a couple of days to digest what you’ve just seen. I’ll be honest, I left the cinema with a bit of a “Mmm, yeah that was OK” but after a day of running it through my brain, I was like “Oh yeah baby, that was a pretty sweet ride”.
To watch this film, you need to be patient and expect the grand finale to be as far removed from your cliché superhero movies as you can get. Don’t go and watch this movie expecting to see laser beams from eyes, shiny spandex and other crazy shit because you’ll be disappointed. This is a Superhero movie for the thinking man… or a 40 odd year old bastard like my good self!
Bruce Willis. Honestly, this once great man of the silver screen looks so disinterest in making films these days that he honestly looks like a majority of the UK populous when someone utters the word… Brexit.
SCORE : 7/10
This film will not blow your socks off at first, but over time, it’ll go down as a classic M. Night Shayalamamamamamnanannanananannanana.
