Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Stars: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson
Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities.
A satisfying superhero drama, and a great reunion of the cast of two of Shyamalan’s best films. There are a lot of stories and characters into one movie, but Samuel L. Jackson did play his part so well, though, and I enjoyed every scene he was in. The filmmaker delivers an exceedingly strong opening half hour that picks right up with Willis’ memorable “Unbreakable” character and he does what he can to put together two tonally different tales, but the results is not always good.
The truth is that I was really expecting more from “Glass,” and I didn’t get it. But for those intrigued but not anticipating too much, it’s the sort of movie that can be a fan one. Overall is an unconventional superhero story that lacks all the thrills of its predecessor.
