Movie Info & Cast
M. Night Shyamalan finally gets to finish the story he began with Unbreakable almost twenty years ago. In Glass, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn, who has never been hurt, while Samuel L. Jackson once again plays the comic book-obsessed, would-be villain Elijah Price — better known as Mr. Glass. They collide with Split’s Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a.k.a The Beast, and Casey Cooke (Anya Taylor-Joy), setting the stage for a unique superhuman showdown.
As Dunn and The Beast clash, Mr. Glass orchestrates their battles from the sidelines. Shyamalan takes us to entirely new territory as he explores his darkly realistic world of heroes and villains. You’ll look at comic books in a totally new light after coming face to face with Mr. Glass.

Did You Know?
- It is a sequel to both Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016).
- Joseph mentions the "mutilations at the zoo," that is, the events seen in Split, as taking place "three weeks ago." Also, several times it is mentioned that the crash of Eastrail 177 was nineteen years ago. But at the end of Split a diner patron mentions Mr. Glass having been put away FIFTEEN years before (which was closer to accurate at the time of release). Since the train wreck and Elijah's capture were only a few days apart, both timeframes cannot be true.

- Dr. Ellie Staple: It's amazing to meet you. It is simply extraordinary. Maybe this will all make sense if I explain who I am. My name is Dr. Ellie Staple, and I'm a psychiatrist. My work concerns a particular type of delusion of grandeur. It's a growing field. I specialize in those individuals who believe they are superheroes.

- Kevin Wendell Crumb: Good for you.
Atom User Reviews
Just finished seeing the prescreening and it was pretty good I fully enjoyed the action sequences and the storyline was planned out masterfully. Still leaves some things to be interpreted but all in all fully entertaining to say the least! If you liked unbreakable and have been waiting for a continuance then here it is. The pieces of the puzzle aligned with this movie but a few more pieces are still left in the box.
This is why M. Night Shyamalan gets so much hate. He makes great movies and disappointments. Split was amazing. Unbreakable was amazing. This was somewhat of a letdown. It was suspenseful but also boring. Reminded me of the village.
Mr. Shyamalan’s movies have often been turgid in a distinctive way, with overtones of lofty sadness, and dramatized deliberately or violently, but seldom spontaneously. This one follows the pattern, for not so good and worse. It’s a lofty letdown.
As a trilogy-closer, it's a mixed bag, tying earlier narrative strands together pleasingly while working too hard (and failing) to convince viewers Shyamalan has something uniquely brainy to offer in the overpopulated arena of comics-inspired stories.
Despite the pyrotechnics of McAvoy’s performances and Willis’s grounded conviction, there’s just not enough here past the high concept of “what if real people were superheroes?”.
