As promised, my review of Glass, the third in the trilogy of flicks by M. Night Shyamalan.
My first thought is, expect the unexpected. What I mean by that is Night has so many twists and turns in this I doubt if you’d guess where the movie is going.
It’s wonderfully presented with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson sharing the screen with James McAvoy.
McAvoy shows off his gifts by adding another bounty of personalities to his base character Kevin Wendell Crumb from Split. McAvoy doesn’t just excel at accents, he is able to bring reality to the different personalities within Crumb. Amazing work and this guy is barely 40 years old.
Night was also able to cast Willis’ young son, Joseph, from Unbreakable in Glass. Crazy since that was made nearly 20 years ago. You may also remember him from Gladiator as the actor who played Lucius.
As a genre in general, Glass is different. Maybe it’s own new genre. Watch all three movies (Unbreakable, Split and Glass) even though I think Glass could stand on its own.
