Critics Consensus

Glass displays a few glimmers of M. Night Shyamalan at his twisty world-building best, but ultimately disappoints as the conclusion to the writer-director's long-gestating trilogy.

    M. Night Shyamalan continues his comeback by bringing Unbreakable and Split together in the supernatural thriller Glass. While battling Kevin Wendell Crumb, a notorious killer known as the Beast, vigilante David Dunn is captured by the police and taken to a mental asylum where a psychiatrist attempts a new treatment to convince David and Kevin that they are not super-human; meanwhile another inmate, Elijah Price (aka Mr. Glass), devises a nefarious plan to break out. Starring James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Sarah Paulson, the film has a strong cast that delivers some good performances; especially McAvoy, who adds a few new personalities to his character's multiple personality repertoire. But unfortunately the plot is rather weak and promises more than it delivers. As a sequel (to either Unbreakable or Split), Glass is a letdown, but on its own it's an interesting and entertaining film.

    After the fantastic Unbreakable and the great Split Shyamalan goes and ruins the two films with a half-baked, boring and ludicrous finale. McAvoy gets to shine with his split personalities again, while Willis simply doesn't get anything to do. Even the soundtrack is dull when it doesn't quote the outstanding score of the first film. But the biggest insult after a pretty uninteresting setup is the oddly staged and pathetic showdown, which should piss off anyone who admired the beginning of this trilogy. The very final twist doesn't turn it all around. One of the biggest let-downs of recent years.

    A wonderfully weird, beautifully shot and very well color-coordinated commentary on the superhero genre that was unfairly maligned. Obviously its silly but I don't know why Shyamalan got torn apart for doing the same things big comic book blockbusters do, just on a smaller scale.

    In a shameless bid to join the money grab that superhero movies have become, M. Night Shyamalan returns to his previous close it out? Oh no. He's out to start his own superhero universe, his own narrative (Stan Lee did it, so shut up). But first we get to see, to understand, that such...differentness, in the face of what we understand human capabilities to be, is indeed possible. James McAvoy returns with his jaw-dropping turn as a soul with multiple personalities. And I'm already waiting for whatever may come next.
