Glass (Review)

Director; M. Night Shyamalan
Thriller/Sci-fi
2h 9 minutes
From January 2019

He introduced Unbreakable, left us in awe with Split and ended with Glass. From the year 2000 has M. Night Shyamalan given us three psychological thrillers that makes you think and use your brain to the very core. It’s not your typical thriller/Sci-fi, it is a script that with its depth, intrigued and heavy dialogue, and supreme acting, will leave you gasping for air, moments after the credits, leaving you stunned with question marks because you don’t feel like you’ve had enough.

Glass is the third film in the trilogy, Unbreakable that came out in 2000, Split from 2016, and now Glass. There is a red thread, so you must obviously watch all 3 to comprehend the complexity of the story and plot. James Mcavoy plays, well, he’s split. A man diagnosed with 24 personalities, one more diffuse than the other, a multiplex persona who switches from one personality/character to another in a matter of minutes, seconds even. His story is brought up in the 2016 release, and we get to meet just a few of the names, here we get introduced to a few others while bringing back Mr. Glass and David Dunn from Unbreakable.

I loved Split, I found it intriguing, dark, fascinating, and brilliant. Glass, however, was duller to my taste. The slow pace had me snoozing off every now and then that I quickly lost interest. It’s a good movie, it just isn’t great nor as near as phenomenal as Split.
And though I thought I would get some answers, I was left with more questions instead.

David Dunn (Willis), uses his supernatural powers to track down Kevin (McAvoy), the man from Split. Once he thinks he finally has him, Dr. Ellie Staple (Paulson) takes them both and locks them in, trying to solve the case once and for all, wondering what causes these men to believe they are supernatural.

I wouldn’t say that if you enjoyed the first two you’ll automatically enjoy this one, at least that wasn’t my case, but it’s worth a watch. 6/10
