Despite its Cracks, Glass is a Satisfying Conclusion to the Unbreakable Trilogy (Review)

It’s hard to believe that a trilogy from M. Night Shyamalan has come full circle, and that it stemmed from his first movie, Unbreakable. Back then, fans did not view films about vigilantes and villains as the type of movies that would play a pivotal role in the future of Hollywood (unless you made a vigilante movie centered around Batman). But boy have things changed since Bruce Willis’ David Dunn put on the rain slicker and saved the day in Unbreakable. After connecting the universe of Unbreakable with 2017’s Split, Shyamalan is back to give us the conclusion to this story of heroes and villains set in the City of Brotherly Love. While Glass may be the weakest of the Unbreakable trilogy and is certain to create watercooler talk about its twists, it offers a unique spin on the perception of comic book stories. Either way, Glass will satisfy fans of the characters from this trilogy despite its cracked structure.

Split: Folks, M. Night Shyamalan is Back [Review]

I have not liked an M. Night Shyamalan movie since The Village and that came out 13 years ago. Since then, Shyamalan has made a string of awful, degrading movies. His most recent movie, The Visit, had an interesting concept (like all of his movies), but nothing stuck in the overall scheme of things. And I never made it past 15 minutes into some of his other recent movies (Devil, After Earth), because I knew I was in for another headache. Shyamalan has been in my dog house for a while now, but when the previews for Split first appeared, I was initially curious. Was Shyamalan onto something? Was he finally back? As it turns out, absolutely yes, is the answer to both of these questions. Split is an expertly-crafted psychological horror movie and a return to form for Shyamalan, whose twistingly-good storytelling was sorely missed.
