Glass - Movie Review


Glass - Movie Review

M. Night Shyamalan has had a superhero dream for almost two decades now. Like anything the writer-director does, his first superhero movie, Unbreakable quirkily jump-started the director’s superhero legacy. Surprisingly, he didn’t make the second installment of his superhero franchise for another 16 years, which was actually a raging success.

This got avid fans on the edge of their seats, waiting to see if M Night Shyamalan will have his third and final act underway or wait some ten years like for Split. Eventually, he announced that Glass hit theaters in 2019; the fans cheered on. Unfortunately, the movie was somewhat of a disappointment for fans given the amount of potential it had.

Technically speaking, this movie was a project in the making for twenty years, and given that the previous two movies of the franchise were good, the third and last one ought to be perfect. No one expected any less from M. Night Shyamalan and his band of superheroes played by renowned actors, Willis, Jackson, and McAvoy.

Unfortunately, the movie fell short in many ways, disappointing fans. The plot picks up from where Split ended; a world where McAvoy and Willis are opposing faces of good and evil. Willis is now a lone ranger, who roams the streets, fending off criminals and saving pedestrians from harm's way. 

He is aided by his now grown-up son in those securing walks of his. One of his walks brings him face to face with The Beast. Proceeding an adrenaline-filled fight sequence, both of them are captured.

They are held captive by Dr. Staple, who also has Jackson captive. Dr. Staple is claiming that their superpowers are just a figment of their imagination and tries to cure them. The truth is, this movie has one really good upside to it; it reminded us of M. Night Shyamalan's iconic debut.

However, that might cause you to ponder about how far he’s deviated from where he started as an artist. That been said, Glass remains a decent watching experience, that serves as the last installment in M. Night Shyamalan's take on the whole superhero notion.
