I liked it but...Ultimately Glass needed: An editor. Someone to dial it back, give it focus, and help to find the truelife moments that make good comics and good comic book movies work.

The problem is Shyamalan has not kept up with the times.
January 18, 2019
Unfortunately the possibility of a great film is overpowered by the filmmaker's excessive self-indulgence and a patently unremarkable third act.

A long-winded, thinly-premised, half-baked mess of a movie. It appears Shyamalan has both given up and run out of steam.

An unconventional superhero story that gets too convoluted and lacks all the thrills of its predecessor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Shattered. Broken. Cracked. Insert whichever pun you choose. Personally, this is one piece of glass I won't want to be looking at ever again.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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

Glass is very mixed bag: compelling when it's good, but numbing and absurd when it's bad.

January 15, 2019
GLASS' lackluster vibe hints at a director who has become uninspired. It's shocking, but shouldn't be so surprising that the buildup for GLASS ended up being a shattering disappointment.

The 'Glass' is half empty in laughably bad ending to Shyamalan trilogy.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

What's frustrating, beyond Shyamalan's inordinate fascination with his own work and his precious final-act twists, is that there really is nobody to root for in Glass.

M. Night Shyamalan gives in to his worst instincts again - to shatter an otherwise promising movie with thousands of jagged pieces made up of overarching theories and obvious plot-twist setups. Great acting and some funny moments can't save it.

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?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A lot of windbag monologues... Paulson's character gets the most of this wretched dialogue -- a character so two-dimensional that the performance is doomed from the start.

With an ambitious and admirable scope, 'Glass' is a film that shoots for the moon but gets lost with too many detours on its journey, leaving us with a jumbled mess of a film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Shyamalan only half-heartedly attempts to build a cinematic universe. Partly making it a twist and partly building a world makes for a wholly unsatisfying experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 18, 2019
There are some awesome moments and it's certainly not The Happening levels of bad, but, overall, Glass is a massive disappointment.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Shyamalan shoots Glass as dully as possible. The budget on the film was only $20 million. Frankly, the movie looks cheaper.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.
January 18, 2019
Shyamalan - who was so keen on exposing film conventions in his prime - ironically turns "Glass" into a mockery of his past works. This film should've shattered expectations, and it ends up feeling broken.
