“Glass” is a fantasy/drama film and part of the Unbreakable trilogy. The series includes, “Unbreakable” and “Split,” following the characters individually until they are all together in the final installment. Released on Jan. 18, the PG-13 movie was directed by M. Night Shyamalan and used Blumhouse Productions, Blinding Edge Pictures and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, in order to produce the movie, which is two hours and nine minutes long.

“Glass” features three men, each believing that they are superheroes. David Dunn is portrayed by Bruce Willis; Elijah Prince, Mr. Glass, is Samuel L. Jackson; Kevin Wendell Crumb, Barry, Dennis, Ms. Patricia, Hedwig, Jade, Orwell, The Beast, Henrich, Samuel, Mary Reynolds, Ian, Norma, Mr. Pritchard, Goddard, Bernice, Polly, Rakel, Felida, Ansel, Jalin, Kat and Luke are depicted by James McAvoy.

It starts off where the other two movies ended. Dunn is attempting to hunt down and capture “The Beast,” one of Crumb’s many personalities, only to have both captured by the police.

The main characters are all introduced individually. First, we meet Dunn in his appliance store with his son. Later with Crumb in an ambiguous location with four cheerleaders, from High school. Later we meet Prince inside the mental hospital. In the previous movies we find out more about each character, and I do suggest watching “Unbreakable” and “Split” before this one.

The movie starts off relatively slow with lots of exposition about the characters. Although it was important to the plot of the movie, personally I think it started a little too slow. The only real action came later in the movie which, in my opinion, made up for the slow start.

However many critics didn’t feel the same. “Despite suspense and tension built into this dramatic thriller, there is something seriously missing in M. Night Shyamalan’s latest oeuvre ‘Glass’,” a News 18 article said.

Although there was controversy, according to Manohla Dargis of the NYTimes, “‘Glass’ is M. Night Shyamalan’s enjoyable, nutty sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split.’” With that said, it received only 36% Rotten Tomatoes and 42% Metacritic ratings.

It had a good plot and adequate pacing, with excellent acting. All emotions were expressed throughout the motion picture. I laughed, I cried and  I was on the edge of my seat.
