I obviously feel mixed on GLASS. It is, in many ways, an almost perfect representation of Shymalan's strengths and weaknesses as a filmmaker; his tools and excesses. What makes him great was all on-screen, right along what makes him so frustrating.
January 21, 2019
Hollywood and its superhero franchises are all but coextensive, and Shyamalan's confrontation with the ubiquity, popularity, and dominance of superheroes gives "Glass" a second-level urgency.

It was not an epic closing, but this film did not require it, it was enough to be enough and loyal to his style, something that undoubtedly achieves. [Full Review in Spanish]

Glass finally cracks due to Shyamalan's declining powers of plot and dialogue, falling far short of Mr Glass's deviousness.

[A] genre deconstruction that is somehow smarter than it's given credit for while also not being as smart as it believes itself to be...an uneven, yet ultimately satisfying ending.

Glass doesn't end at the climax. It rolls over, goes to sleep and snores for 30 minutes before the credits roll.

Glass, the newest film from M. Night Shyamalan, is almost an anti-blockbuster, and I admire its commitment to not caring what you think of it.

Shyamalan is incredibly gifted. He's also suffering from delusions of grandeur.

The metaphors are messy (trauma makes people extraordinary?) and the pacing's off, but it's fun to see the individual films' universes crossing over.

James McAvoy's outstanding performance anchors a shockingly unsatisfying conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan's Eastrail 177 Trilogy.

You've got to hand it to M.Night Shyamalan for sheer chutzpah but ultimately the grand scale concept dissipates in a puff of its own self-importance.
January 19, 2019
A uniquely structured film for the genre, Shyamalan's Glass deconstructs society's infatuation with superheroes and delivers with a thrilling conclusion to a trilogy that began 19 years ago.

A nerdy deep-dive into the filmmaker's ideas about superhero movies... Nutty, self-aware, periodically thrilling.

Ce n'est pas parfait. Ce n'est certainement pas pour tout le monde. Mais c'est une proposition aussi foisonnante que fascinante dont je ne peux que saluer l'originalité et l'audace. [Full review in French]

M.Night Shyamalan's films are often incredibly divisive and it's likely that Glass will be his most divisive yet. The converging of Unbreakable and Split sees Shyamalan working to all his strengths as a filmmaker - and his weaknesses.

January 19, 2019
Shyamalan's final entry in his unlikely cinematic universe is a Split sequel with Unbreakable filling; but what's the point if none of it makes sense?

None of this is a happy accident; it's a confident creator's act of will and a worthy conclusion... the unironically self-aware meta comic book film... those who want to believe will be well rewarded.

While not as strong as its predecessors, even shattered glass has interesting pieces.

If GIass shows us anything, it's that Shyamalan learned almost nothing following his fall from/return to critical and box office grace.

Shyamalan shoots Glass as dully as possible. The budget on the film was only $20 million. Frankly, the movie looks cheaper.
