A wasted opportunity of a movie that tries to shamelessly pander to a fan base it clearly doesn't actually understand. Flashes of excellence that never materializes into anything more than fleeting moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
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.

January 18, 2019
A satisfying superhero drama, and a great reunion of the cast of two of Shyamalan's best films.
January 18, 2019
Glass is overcome with big ideas that overshadow some of the smaller, more intimate moments that Shyamalan has proved he can do exceptionally well.

It just feels very anticlimactic considering the buildup of the first two films. Bruce Willis' character barely has an arc, he's so sidelined...
January 18, 2019
There are a lot of stories and characters just jammed into one movie...Samuel L. Jackson did play his part so well, though, and I enjoyed every scene he was in.

Hard to know how to describe it, but the phrase grandiose nonsense springs to mind.

January 18, 2019
To see McAvoy fully realize each persona with such fluidity, sometimes with nothing more than an expression and a brief sentence, is a thing of wonder to behold. The film in which he shows off this feat of thespian derring-do is anything but.

Glass is now the second-least-impressive title, after The Last Airbender, in Shyamalan's canon. Sigh.

Shyamalan wants us to know that he got to this genre early; characters repeat the phrase "19 years" too many times to forget. So it's strange that in Glass, he seems to forget what makes superhero stories endure.
January 18, 2019
In lieu of elaborate set pieces and special effects, there's brooding drama on the nature of power delivered at a deliberate pace.
January 18, 2019
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.
January 18, 2019
Shyamalan does what he can to put together two tonally different tales, but the results don't always mesh neatly.

Glass is silly and dull when it should be thoughtful and tense.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 18, 2019
Shyamalan - back on the downward swoop of his career sine-wave - inadvertently demonstrates that the Unbreakable punchline cannot sustain even casual analysis.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 18, 2019
To cut to the chase, Glass is terrific but has its share of underwhelming moments. However, if you are the type who likes the journey regardless of the destination, Glass is your film.

Totally fumbles the fanboy excitement it generated when Willis's David Dunn turned and looked at the camera at the end of Split.

January 18, 2019
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?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 18, 2019
Split decision on this one. It's not an unbreakable split decision, however. Loved James McAvoy's work but not much else.

With a great first two movies comes great responsibility. I was really expecting more from "Glass," and I didn't get it. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, etc. - also Available)
