With Unbreakable , Mr. Shyamalan establishes himself as a distinctive auteur with a very personal style.

Whereas The Sixth Sense left audiences surprised but surprisingly comfortable, this more mature and ambitious movie preserves its ambiguities and keeps everyone guessing.

Samuel L. Jackson plays a comic-book-art collector named Elijah, as in the prophet, and his stare could probably burn a hole through Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

Thrill-kill plots, cardboard characters and zap-pow editing are not for Shyamalan, who takes his good, thoughtful time to snare audiences in his dark web.

Unbreakable seems to have encouraged all its actors to emulate Willis' lugubrious pacing, meaning that usually vibrant actors such as Wright Penn and Jackson are not shown to their best advantage.

Long before these came up on screen, however, Unbreakable had defined itself as a big disappointment.

During a conversation between an astonished doctor and a miraculously unscathed Dunne ... it's a measure of Shyamalan's restraint and his uncanny knack for storytelling.

By the time the film is over you may feel as if the 12 year old inside of you has been utterly wowed and that the adult is still going, 'Hmmmm...'

Unbreakable is as compellingly watchable, stylish and intriguing as its predecessor, its ending has almost the opposite effect on the overall picture.

Shyamalan made the unfortunate but predictable choice of trying to bottle The Sixth Sense's lightning and reuse it.

All I will say about it is that its overwhelming horror hit me more powerfully than a locomotive, and that, after I knew what it was, I couldn't believe I had overlooked it. Days later, I still find myself obsessed with that twist.

The presence of pop culture refs via comics makes quite notable the absence of any humor or sense of fun, just as it makes its pretentions to deep meaning and self-importance all the more specious.
