An uneven but satisfying finale to an accidental trilogy that looks like an action/thriller but is really an exploration of modern superhero mythology.

Glass glints just enough for a drink.

Unsure if it wants to be grounded in reality or embrace its fantastical premise, Glass is unable to strongly deliver on either.

[Glass] will be best appreciated by audiences who value playfulness and imagination over restrictive notions of logic, plausibility and good taste.

M. Night Shyamalan has crafted a very effective creepshow with "Glass," a shotgun marriage of his 2000 horror hit "Unbreakable" and 2016's "Split," an even bigger blockbuster.

Rather than being a more grounded and stylized homeopathic antidote to Marvel films, Shyamalan has delivered a strange journey into the meaning and the hope to be found in comic books.

...while it certainly has cracks, Glass does not completely shatter under its own thematic weight.

Glass is like a comic with an incredible cover that promises an amazing story, but inside the art and story are lackluster. But anyone who enjoyed Unbreakable or Split should go to Glass to see how it all ends up.

The plot to 'Glass' is as broken and splintery as Elijah's bones, but the 19-year-old payoff for 'Unbreakable' fans may be worth your time.

If you're looking for a nifty summation of Shyamalan's strengths and weaknesses, this cracked looking glass of a film has it all.

Glass lives up to the hype and was worth the 19-year wait. Is it flawless? Absolutely not, but I don't believe Shyamalan has never made a film that was.

As mixed quality as this movie is, I still respect that it tries to do something different with comic book mythology, and even with its flaws it is still worth watching--just to see M. Night finish his 19-year-long journey with these characters.

The main thing to savour is what a downright weird dude the director is, and how it bleeds into the movie. Glass is really strange.

For diehard fans hoping for a signature twist (or two), the payoff is pretty sweet.

One of the most impressive aspects of the script is the way it gives entire character arcs to several of the personalities that dwell inside Kevin Crumb's head, and McAvoy plays them out fully across his face and body.

As someone who felt that Unbreakable was somewhat lacking, Shyamalan shows his growth as a filmmaker by making a far more enjoyable, mainstream film that tries to satisfy both old and new fans.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
January 15, 2019
Its relentlessly jarring tone makes it gripping, partly because Shyamalan, as usual, withholds key information.

[Shyamalan] falls into unlikely situations and also generates expectations that he does not fulfill, but always in order to demonstrate his mastery in a film about manipulators where he is the king. [Full Review in Spanish]

Never a particularly subtle director, Shyamalan gives you all the clues you need to figure out most of his third-act twists, provided you know what you're looking for.

I would love a Marvel movie to film their battles the way Shyamalan does. He can show extraordinary feats while obscuring some aspect of it to activate the viewer's own imagination.
