Three weeks after the events of “Split”, David Dunn tracks down four kidnapped cheerleaders only to come across Kevin Wendell Crumb. After a short fight, both men were arrested and sent to a mental asylum were Elijah Price is being held. With the three men locked in cells, Elijah must plan his and the others escape so that Kevin and David can fight.       

M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” is the third and probably final installment in the Unbreakable trilogy with “Unbreakable” and “Split” being financial and critical successes. Unfortunately, the cannot be said for “Glass”. All of the little good qualities of this film is snuffed out with bad acting, writing, and editing.

The score is mostly okay, but it wasn’t very memorable. James McAvoy was probably the only one who actually did a good job with what he had. Samuel L. Jackson somewhat tried with he had too but he felt a little held back for most of the film with most of his lines being unintentionally funny. Bruce Willis on the other hand just gave up trying to convey emotion throughout the entire movie, which makes his performance pretty bad due to the cheesy dialogue.

In some parts of the movie, it cuts to clips from “Unbreakable” as David Dunn has flashbacks about why he’s a vigilante (I think). It felt very jarring and inconsistent considering the fact how great Bruce Willis performance was from the first movie.  M. Night probably didn’t think about editing the flashbacks to make them feel more natural or tell Bruce Willis to improve on his acting skills for this movie.

The film’s plot, however, is just poorly written slouch. The hospital that they were concealed in had little to no security guards, only multiple cameras which made it convenient for the plot at the end of the film. at the end of the film it turns out that the hospital is a part of a secret organization that is dedicated to stopping superhumans from being apart of society and keep people oblivious about their powers, which is the reason why Elijah was in the hospital in the first place, to keep him from convincing people that they might have superpowers. For some reason, this organization did not consider each of the characters loved ones and people who have interacted with them to buy into them having superpowers. Each of the characters cells are rigged to deal with each of their weaknesses. For example, in Kevin’s cell, there are lights that somehow start to flash when one of his bad personalities show up only to turn him into one of the good ones, Which was kind of ridiculous for some people because he didn’t try to cover his eyes or try to destroy the lights.

It is a shame to realize that this is probably the last film in this trilogy because it fails in almost every sense of the word with poor acting, writing, and editing. Someone out there might think this is a good film, but for most people, it is a very disappointing end to this trilogy.
