Review: Glass (2019)

Glass

PLOT SUMMARY: ‘Glass’ is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and stars are James McAvoy, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson and it’s the sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’. In this film, David Dunn (Bruce Willis) use his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy). After some time, they end up in a psychiatric ward with Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), being questioned by a doctor who thinks they’re under an impression that they’re all superheroes and she’s trying to convince them that it’s all in their mind.

‘Glass’ is one of those movies where you really have to think about it a lot, like ‘Inception’ or ‘Shutter Island’. You’ll feel confused at first but everything will be explained once it gets to the ending. But if you still didn’t get it, you might gonna have to figure it out all over again from the start. I’ll be honest, after watching this movie, I was confused as well to the point where I thought I didn’t like it. But I changed my mind when I finally understood everything about it, every character’s agenda, who’s the real bad guy out of all the bad guys here, and what their mission was all about.

I don’t think M. Night Shyamalan gets that much credit from most of the reviews that I’ve read because I think he did really good. Not to mention, he came up with the writing and directing of this movie. Give the guy some credit.

But let’s talk about James McAvoy for a minute. I think he deserves an award because he could act out 23 different personalities in just one take. First he’s a soft-spoken lady, then he’s a kid that talks with a lisp, and 21 other personalities, one after another. It’s outstanding. That’s actually pretty fucking amazing (sorry for the cuss).

To put this movie in an action genre, I wouldn’t call it action because the movie has little action about it. It’s not like one of Michael Bay films where everything blows up but I think ‘Glass’ fits in a drama thriller genre. Even the cinematography was actually cool, how they’re able to film scenes that are somewhat tricky to capture, I’m surprised that they could pull it off.

I’d say don’t believe every bad reviews you read on social media or reviews from YouTube about ‘Glass’. They’re not entirely right about the movie and I think that the critics doesn’t really get the whole point of the film.

RATING: 10 out of 10
