Might have made an interesting episode of the X-Files, but it fails as a full length movie.

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.
August 7, 2008
The characters (especially Willis') are drab and uninteresting, and the story, even allowing for the supernatural overtones, is unconvincing.

The dialogue has more pauses than a High School production of Samuel Beckett. And while that works up to a point, you find yourself wanting to grab the characters and shake them out of their introspective stupors.

January 10, 2003
A depressing, definitive case of a film that experiences in its third and final act what one could either call, charitably, a total loss of its convictions, or, less charitably, a total brain aneurysm.

It needs structure and it doesn't have it.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 1, 2000
Sophistic morality disguised as pretentious comic-book entertainment.
January 1, 2000
A potentially interesting idea deflated by the absurd proclamations of an arch screenplay and smothered under the ponderous gravity of M. Night Shyamalan's dreary direction.

Having hooked us, it leaves us looking for complexity where there is none.

January 1, 2000
Ponderous, pretentious and self-indulgent, it nonetheless puts Mr. Shyamalan's technical prowess on display. Still, you'll wonder if the pay-off was worth the journey.
January 1, 2000
Unbreakable is at once flagrantly absurd and stubbornly mournful.
January 1, 2000
Far-fetched and utterly humorless.
January 1, 2000
As slack and languid as The Sixth Sense was tense and deliberate.
January 1, 2000
Mind-bogglingly sophomoric.
