It's good to have him back. It's a great looking film, it's great storytelling, and again he really takes his time.
January 25, 2019
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.
January 21, 2019
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.
January 20, 2019
Shyamalan is incredibly gifted. He's also suffering from delusions of grandeur.
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
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?
January 18, 2019
The concept is intriguing but the emotional payoff is negligible, the surprise ending is feeble and the whole enterprise resembles a recycling bin.
January 18, 2019
For those intrigued but not anticipating too much, it's the sort of flawed but reasonably entertaining effort that can be viewed as "Glass," half full.
January 18, 2019
It is a successful movie on its own terms and an ideal closing chapter to M. Night Shyamalan's Eastrail 177 trilogy.
January 18, 2019
"Glass," it turns out, is broken.
January 18, 2019
It is a frequently clever elaboration of the "Unbreakable" morality tale and, to me, that feels like enough.
January 17, 2019
Mostly, though, it's an underwhelming, half-baked, slightly sour and even off-putting finale.
January 17, 2019
What we have here, essentially, is not the final grand statement to an overarching narrative but merely a Glass that's half empty, half full (of itself).
January 17, 2019
Shyamalan is so intent on not making a conventional superhero movie, he ends up not making much of a movie at all. This Glass isn't half-empty; it's not even one-third full.
January 17, 2019
The kind of depressing misfire that hurts even more given what it could have been.
January 17, 2019
The sequel to 'Unbreakable' and 'Split' adds another layer to the glass onion of self-conscious genre riffing.
January 17, 2019
Shyamalan's talent for primitive scares remains intact in "Glass," as does his love for cramming a whole lot of story in one feature.
Top Critic
January 17, 2019
If Unbreakable was ahead of the curve, arriving as it did on the cusp of the superhero-movie boom, then Shyamalan's belated new sequel, Glass, is perversely and even admirably out of step.
January 17, 2019
Its third act is so hopelessly inept, I'd have preferred the writer/director just default to a "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" ending, unceremoniously wrapping the film mid-scene...
January 17, 2019
Is it good? No. Is it watchable? Infinitely.
