Moviefone's 'Glass' Review

There is a good film to be made about superheroes existing in the "real" world, and the phenomenon, or perhaps disorder, where ordinary people believe they possess extraordinary abilities. "Glass" is not that film, despite how seriously writer-director M. Night Shyamalan takes both of those ideas, and as always, himself. An overlong, underdeveloped mash-up (or more charitably, payoff) of his brilliant "Unbreakable" and the pulpy "Split," Shyamalan tries to examine, and rekindle, the magic and intrigue of comic books in the pre-Marvel Cinematic Universe era. But he spends so much time discussing, deconstructing and still somehow indulging their now-boilerplate storytelling conventions that the end result is a movie that feels even less tethered to reality than the ones that it so snobbishly looks down upon.

Bruce Willis plays David Dunn, a Philadelphia security expert-turned-vigilante in search of Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a serial killer suffering from multiple personality disorder. David's superhuman abilities soon bring the two men together, but before he can fully defeat Crumb's monstrous alter ego, The Beast, they're both apprehended by local police and thrown into an institution for the criminally insane. Once there, David is unwittingly reunited with Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), the homicidal comic book aficionado who sparked his heroic self-discovery decades ago, and all three are offered the opportunity to confront what psychologist Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson) believes are delusional beliefs in their own preternatural talents.
