Glass (2019) Adam & Pat’s movie review

The long awaited (kinda) conclusion of M.Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable trilogy *cough*cashgrab*cough* brought some mixed emotions to the crew. While Adam, who was actually excited to witness the story come to a head, Pat was more inclined to begrudgingly tolerate this twist-laden mess. Mostly built off a limited cache of goodwill brought on by James McAvoy’s brilliant acting in “Split.” That can only get you so far though… was it far enough for M.Night to recapture a place in our hearts? (Spoiler: No)

2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split come together in this comic-book-like thriller: Glass. From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as security guard David Dunn, who uses his supernatural abilities to track criminals, as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass, in an entirely new position. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men. Yes, it’s as grandiose as it sounds.
