Critics Consensus

Glass displays a few glimmers of M. Night Shyamalan at his twisty world-building best, but ultimately disappoints as the conclusion to the writer-director's long-gestating trilogy.

Movie Info

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb's superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

  • It's good to have him back. It's a great looking film, it's great storytelling, and again he really takes his time.

  • There are a few thoughtfully placed cameras and thrilling moments - Bruce Willis vs. a door, for one - but they're not nearly enough to make this self-conscious live-action comic book worthwhile.

    Jan 25, 2019 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • Hollywood and its superhero franchises are all but coextensive, and Shyamalan's confrontation with the ubiquity, popularity, and dominance of superheroes gives "Glass" a second-level urgency.

    Jan 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Shyamalan is incredibly gifted. He's also suffering from delusions of grandeur.

    Jan 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • You have to admire Shyamalan's efforts to deconstruct a genre that he evidently loves, yet there is just so little to haunt or to fool us in the result, and a few sharp laughs might have helped his cause.

    Jan 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Why was Shyamalan, who has directed at least four objective failures over the course of his career, allowed yet another chance to prove what a disappointment he can be?

    After the fantastic Unbreakable and the great Split Shyamalan goes and ruins the two films with a half-baked, boring and ludicrous finale. McAvoy gets to shine with his split personalities again, while Willis simply doesn't get anything to do. Even the soundtrack is dull when it doesn't quote the outstanding score of the first film. But the biggest insult after a pretty uninteresting setup is the oddly staged and pathetic showdown, which should piss off anyone who admired the beginning of this trilogy. The very final twist doesn't turn it all around. One of the biggest let-downs of recent years.

    A wonderfully weird, beautifully shot and very well color-coordinated commentary on the superhero genre that was unfairly maligned. Obviously its silly but I don't know why Shyamalan got torn apart for doing the same things big comic book blockbusters do, just on a smaller scale.

    In a shameless bid to join the money grab that superhero movies have become, M. Night Shyamalan returns to his previous close it out? Oh no. He's out to start his own superhero universe, his own narrative (Stan Lee did it, so shut up). But first we get to see, to understand, that such...differentness, in the face of what we understand human capabilities to be, is indeed possible. James McAvoy returns with his jaw-dropping turn as a soul with multiple personalities. And I'm already waiting for whatever may come next.
