Easily M. Night Shyamalan's best movie (Sixth Sense is good, but not this good), 'Unbreakable' has 2 great central performances, a great score by James Newton Howard, and a story that was really before its time, that would have performed better if released today.
The movie feels forever trapped in the first act. There is no rising action for a very long time, and I really don‚??t get the sense anyone gets an arc (except Bruce Willis‚?? lead character). There‚??s no conflict that drives the movie, and little chemistry between the leads. The ending feels very unsatisfying, and the movie as a whole feels like a collection of scenes rather than a cohesive story.
Bruce Willis doesn‚??t grab me here at all. His storylines seem to go nowhere, and I don‚??t know what motivates him. Same goes for Samuel L. Jackson, or really any of the cast. I don‚??t know why they are doing what they are doing, and I feel lost and confused throughout the entire ‚??plot.‚??
While there are some directing choices that are done well, nothing grabs me. To steal a line from film critic Jeremy Jahns, you‚??ll forget about this movie in T-minus 1 day.
