GLASS – Every Superhero and Villain, weather if it is in a comic book or real life have their own weakness like “Kryptonite”, and things come to a full circle in this new innovative form of a trilogy from Director – M. Night Shyamalan. “GLASS” is Marvel Comics meets Hitchcock.
The concept of bringing 2 of his earlier works from Bruce Willis in “Unbreakable’ – 19 years ago, and James McAvoy from “Split” from 2016, and creating a story where these characters meet, including the mastermind “Mr. Glass”, played by Samuel Jackson, is selling point for seeing this film.
If you know the Philadelphia based director M. Night Shyamalan then you know what to expect with concept that is filled with metaphors that attempts to question things that affect us in our general daily lives. Never doubt one’s inner strength, even when others deny you that truth, or what they want you to believe.
The film tackles on good vs. evil, with a psychopath that has multiple split personalities, who is at the same time battling his own inner demons. They all get picked up and are kept behind a tight security Mental Institution. They are under observation and are being tested upon by a psychiatrist, played by Sarah Paulson.
Despite Bruce Willis & Samuel Jackson presences in the movie, it James McAvoy that is electric on the screen. He makes you believe his strength just by his body language, and expressions. In order to appreciate this film, you have to his previous work to enjoy this concept. The film gets a 3 star recommendation. Courtesy Awesome TV & BEING FILMY.
