A crazy psychiatrist gets a week to break three men out of their delusions that they’re superheroes, or so she says… The three men in question: David Dunn from Unbreakable, Elijah Price (played by Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb played by James McAvoy.  Dunn has super strength and the ability to sense things from people. Kevin’s got many, many personalities living in his head, and Price is smart, very smart.

Additional Comments:

  • It would definitely help if you’ve seen Unbreakable and Split. I have not seen either movie. You can still follow Glass without them, but it’s still like being dropped in the middle of the story.
  • James McAvoy’s an incredible actor to be able to believably portray a half-dozen distinct personalities. He does crazy very well.
  • Not a huge M. Night Shyamalan fan. I still haven’t forgiven the man for that awful adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Glass is a decent movie, but it’s almost like they’re working too hard to make it unusual and break the rules of the genre.
  • Plot followed a standard path until the last third where they just started throwing curves in for the sake of mixing things up.


Interesting to watch, but probably going to be forgettable in the long run.

Spoiler Comments:

  • I really wish they had dropped Ellie off a building. That would have made the movie so much better in my eyes.
  • One issue I had with the movies was the lack of likable characters.
  • Everybody dies? As a general rule, I kinda hate endings like that. Closure’s a wonderful thing, but there should always be some sort of option for a sequel. I guess they could work with the son, the mother, and the victim turned sorta friend.
  • The whole secret society thing out of nowhere seemed forced.
