Master of the twist M. Night Shyamalan is back with this anxiously awaited final film in a surprise trilogy. An explosive comic-book thriller, Glass brings together the worlds of 2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split, as revealed in the closing moments of the latter.
James McAvoy reprises his brilliant role(s) as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, while Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson return near 20 years on as unbreakable superhero, David Dunn, and his diabolical nemesis, Mr. Glass, respectively.
Shyamalan toys with comic book tropes and psychoanalysis, and as with all his films, Glass is clever, self-aware and unexpected. Except for the twist, because you just know there’s gonna be a twist.

In 1827, Captain Blocker (Christian Bale), a U.S. Cavalry officer stationed in New Mexico, is ordered by the President to escort Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) a dying Cheyenne War Chief to his ancestral home in Montana. For those vague on U.S. geography, that’s the full length of the present-day United States, south to north.
He grits his teeth as he accepts the assignment, for the two have a bloody history. On the dangerous (and spectacular-looking) journey north, they – and a few other hangers-on, including Rosamund Pike – are assailed by even more hostile hostiles, and it becomes increasingly harder to hold grudges.
