In the words of Elijah Prince, “This is not a cartoon. This is the real world. And yet some of us still don’t die with bullets. Some of us can still bend steel. I’ve been waiting for the world to see that we exist.” Who is “us?”

“Glass” is the third movie of a series, following “Unbreakable” and “Split.” The story follows the three main characters: Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), David Dunn (Bruce Willis), and Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson).

Throughout the film, the three work both together and against each other to prove that humans with supernatural abilities exist and can be created. Elijah, also known as Mr. Glass, is the mastermind. He relies greatly on his brain as he has been confined to a wheelchair due to an incident in his childhood. Kevin, also known as The Beast, is a man who suffers from DID, dissociative identity disorder. He takes on 24 different personalities some of which alter his physical state into a more animal-like being. David, also known as The Overseer, was the lone survivor in a train crash. He was deemed to be “unbreakable” and adapted superhuman strength.

David Dunn (Bruce Willis) sits with director M. Night Shyamalan.

Released on Jan. 18, 2019, the series took about 19 years to complete. The film is rated PG 13 and classified as a dramatic fantasy. Overall, I would rate Glass 3.7 out of 5 stars. It successfully blends the preceding movies together. There were a few twists, however, some parts were predictable. Disclaimer: there are a lot of bone-cracking noises, therefore, if you are sensitive to that sound, I would not recommend. The official trailer can be viewed here: https://www.glassmovie.com/

It is an interesting take on a superhero film where Shyamalan reminds the audience through Elijah Prince that “Belief in oneself is contagious. We are part of something larger. We are fighting for the broken.”
