The world of superheroes will be shattered.
M. Night Shyamalan followed his auspicious debut feature The Sixth Sense with the unconventional ‘superhero’ thriller Unbreakable. 16 years later, along came Split – a contained venture about a man with dissociative identity disorder, featuring a bravura performance by James McAvoy and a surprise coda alluding to a shared universe with Unbreakable, and a further film that would unite the two.
Glass completes this trilogy. Split’s Kevin Wendell Crumb (McAvoy) is still on the loose, and a group of missing cheerleaders has prompted security guard David Dunn (Bruce Willis) to use his supernatural abilities to track down the missing girls and their captor. When things go awry, Crumb and Dunn find themselves – along with the elusive Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) – in a high security psychiatric ward under the supervision of Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson), who intends to prove the trio’s self-professed ‘superpowers’ are simply figments of their imagination that can be explained logically.
Both Willis and SLJ deliver solid performances in reprising their Unbreakable roles, but once again it’s McAvoy who steals the show. His ability to effortlessly transition between different personalities makes every scene he’s in an absolute highlight.
