Fellow movie-goers: GLASS is worth the wait, and hopefully not the last we will see of this story
Open Date: 1/18/2019Movie URL: https://www.glassmovie.comDirector: M. Night ShyamalanCast: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Anna Taylor-JoyRating: PG-13 for violence including some bloody images, thematic elements, and language.
Here’s the premise: Security guard David Dunn (Bruce Willis) uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities.
So, by now most people know that GLASS is the third part of a story that has been almost 20 years in the making; from UNBREAKABLE to SPLIT, and now GLASS. I look at the three films as a beginning of another superhero universe, much like Marvel and DC has, but this is the start of what could be a pretty cool pathway to M. Night’s vision of good vs evil.
I absolutely loved this movie; there are some good twists and turns that M. Night Shyamalan is so good at, and they all take the audience by sheer surprise. GLASS is a movie that will have people taking for quite a while.
The acting is tremendous, Willis, Jackson, and McAvoy shine as the Superhero/Villain trio, then you have Sarah Paulson as the Doctor who is trying to convince them that they so not have superpowers; and you throw in Anna Taylor-Joy, the lone survivor from SPLIT…and it is absolutely explosive!!!
The other thing that was fantastic about GLASS is the cinematography, the shots were amazing, and several that were well thought out to setup a bit of foreshadowing for the rest of the movie.
GLASS is a masterpiece and I really hope we see more of the story; M. Night Shyamalan hit a homerun with this one for sure.
