A fail attempt of bring three characters from two different movies together. director M. Night Shyamalan has done a poor job of getting these character together with one thing in common, these characters has something that bounds them together, but the director has failed to act upon it. the most incredible of the three characters is James McAvoy as the Kevin Wendal Crumb, a man with many split personalities. He's from "Split." The other two (Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson) came from "Unbreakable." All three were brought together by Sarah Paulson in a series of therapy sessions. this is the wrong thong to do. Why don't you throw out the therapy part and let the three go loose. Sadly, the film has confined the three, therefore nothing much comes of this movie. The only strong point of the screenplay is that explaining the reason why there are heroes in this world. But "Glass" has failed the three characters and Paulson and there's little to like in thios movie.

Glass concludes the trilogy that director M. Night Shyamalan began in 2000 with Unbreakable, which was followed up with Split in 2016. Hopes were high for Shyamalan to end the series on a high note, and opinions about the film are quite mixed. Did Glass deliver what audiences were looking for? Certainly not if the expectation was for a conventional comic book film. As an original, slow-burn thriller with limited action, there's a lot to appreciate about Glass.

The film stars Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy, who all reprise their roles from the previous films. Each of their characters are shown to have extraordinary abilities Actors Spencer Treat Clark, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Charlayne Woodard also return from the previous films as supporting characters. Sarah Paulson stars as the key new character - a psychiatrist who attempts to convince the protagonists that they are not special, and their "powers" only exist in their minds.

The bulk of Glass is set within the confines of a mental institution. There are moments in the beginning and near the end of the film with outdoor action, but most of it does take place in just one building. The enclosed, suffocating atmosphere makes for a useful way to really get inside the characters' heads. The film clearly shows the different experiences and feelings each character goes through. The setting, mixed with strong acting from every person and solid direction, allows the audience to appreciate and understand all the characters.

Many critics and fans have found fault with the film's story, particularly with the ending. Opinions will vary, but it is best to approach Glass with an open mind and realize it will not play by the rules of your average Marvel film. There is not a lot of spectacle, and the characters and dialogue drive most of the film. There are many unconventional and somewhat shocking moments, and for that Glass should be appreciated. Shyamalan makes some bold moves with his trilogy's threequel, and though things may not turn out the way audiences expected or wanted, the director has offered a conclusion more original and uniquely satisfying.
