Glass (2019)

Updated: Nov 21, 2022

Director M. Night Shyamalan's career had a resurgence when the 2016 film, Split was released. The film was the second film in the trilogy of Shamalan's 19 year old cult classic, Unbreakable.

Glass picks up right after the events of Split and brings the characters of Unbreakable and Split together in an all-new thriller about superheroes in the real world.

I really enjoyed Glass. I thought it was a fitting ending to one of the most unique superhero film series to ever grace the silver screen.

The only issue that I had with this film was that of director M. Night Shyamalan's lack of providing a real pay off from all the momentum set up from its predecessor, Split.

After recovering from initial shock that Glass existed in the universe created in Unbreakable. I could only imagine where director M. Night Shyamalan would take this feature film series.

Unfortunately, the set up from Split did trickle down to Glass. And granted, the film has its moments but in my opinion it doesn't carry the momentum that was setup in its predecessor.

In no way does this make Glass a bad film, just slightly underwhelming.

So if you like superhero films, check out Unbreakable, Split and Glass Because they are truly some of the most overlooked and underappreciated film series' in the genre.
