It's difficult to not admire [M. Night Shyamalan] for his attempt to give us something so familiar, so textbook, in a package we're unprepared for

Glass is a lackluster money grab for all involved.

Glass would need to be completely reconsidered, script-wise, and then redone from scratch.

There's something about a self-assured director that makes an audience feel secure that they're in competent hands. That's what happens here.

Glass perfectly combines the worlds of Unbreakable and Split to create an action packed film. While somewhat slow and predictable, James McAvoy's acting saves the film.

Never one to shy away from a paycheck, as evidenced by the steady string of roles in low-budget non-theatrical releases, Willis is clearly putting in the absolute minimum effort required to continue growing his bank account.

The movie's tag line is "Real villains are among us. Real heroes are within us," but with all the machinations and misdirections that go nowhere, real satisfaction eluded us.

Glass is a decent sequel to Split but a not-so-good sequel to Unbreakable - and I was wanting more of a sequel to the latter.

What we get is a superhero movie that pulls its punches, and no one wants to see that.
March 21, 2019
You have to admire the nerve of Shyamalan for attempting something like this-and indeed, for choosing Glass as the title for a film so unashamedly non-transparent.

The movie begins promisingly, but Glass ultimately suffers because of problems with its pace, coherence and storyline.

Glass's self-reflection about comic-book tropes, characterisation and narrative-arcs would've been far more powerful a decade ago, before cinema goers were over-exposed to the genre. Nonetheless, it is an insightful and highly engaging film.

Any suggestion that M. Night Shyamalan is experiencing a career renaissance can be put aside halfway through the movie, when his worst tendencies begin to show through.
March 8, 2019
Glass offers something we never see in contemporary tentpole comic-book movies: a stylized, color-coded, largely visual world, a reality of angles and camera moves.

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

The most pure superhero film that has gestated since the boom of the genre. [Full Review in Spanish]

Get ready for more thespian peacocking from James McAvoy...
February 27, 2019
This was 19 years in the making, and this is all you came up with?
February 20, 2019
While some may find Shyamalan's aesthetic and tonal choices to be too heavy-handed, others will appreciate Glass as the clever, campy work of a die-hard cinephile - maybe even a kindred spirit.
