The spoiler free Verdict is here for #Glass in this weeks Meat and Potatoes
It’s been nineteen years since “Unbreakable” came out, M. Night Shyamalan made it after his super successful “Sixth Sense” and it was surprisingly a neat comic book story, with a hero, villain and shocking ending. I liked it a lot. Then a few years ago M. Night Shyamalan made a movie about man suffering from split personalities called “Split” starring James McAvoy. McAvoy was fantastic in it, but the subject matter was a little too disturbing for my taste. But, at the end of the film, we were shocked to see Bruce Willis’s character show up from “Unbreakable” Now after waiting almost nineteen years…. We get “Glass” the sequel to “Unbreakable” and “Split”.
*The MEAT* The story takes place soon after the “Split” movie and nineteen years after the “Unbreakable” movie and does a *good job* of bringing it all together for this movie. I personally like M. Night Shyamalan’s realistic take on comics and superheroes in this story line.
*The POTATOES* Bruce Willis and Samuel Jackson were their typically good selves, but James McAvoy took acting to a whole new interstellar level! He played over 12 characters flawlessly and brilliantly. I cannot cheer enough of how *Great* of an acting job he did. McAvoy alone, is reason to see this movie if you want to experience acting at its best.
*The Verdict* If you liked “Unbreakable” you will like “Glass” too, because it continues the story of *Real Superheroes* in our world. “Glass” does, like all of M. Night Shyamalan’s movies, move pretty slow and the ending feels anti-climactic, but I still enjoyed “Glass” as much as I did “Unbreakable” so I will recommend it only *If you liked “Unbreakable” and “Split”. But If you were not impressed with those films, you probably won’t like this one at all.
p.s. No mid or end credits scene, so don’t waste your time.
