Elijah Price: [narrating] There are unknown forces that don’t want us to realize what we are truly capable of. They don’t want us to know the things we suspect are extraordinary about ourselves are real. I believe that if everyone sees what just a few people become when they wholly embrace their gifts, others will awaken. Belief in oneself is contagious. We give each other permission to be superheroes. We will never awaken otherwise. Whoever these people are who don’t want us to know the truth, today, they lose.
The psychological thriller superhero series has directed attention back to writer and director M. Night Shyamalan. This movie is a crossover sequel to two movies such as Split made in 2016 and Unbreakable that was made back in the year 2000. With a budget of $20 million this movie successfully made $247 million at the box office.
Starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and James Mcavoy each actor were able to create some fantastic performances. Visually impressive, you will like most of this movie with it able to create some incredibly memorable moments. But each scene is not as satisfying as other scenes and it gets a little weird.
This movie received many mixed reviews for many good reasons. I was on board with Glass for most of the movie as many people I know said good things about it. And Unbreakable and Split are by far two of the best M Night Shamlon films. But the more I watched the more the story became messy which made each character less believable. Then, in my opinion, it failed to give an ending to conclude everything.
Comic Book Geek: [enthused] He’s too smart. That’s why he’s the mastermind. He’ll never tell you his real plan. He sets everybody up. Gets them looking in one direction.
