[5.50/10] Glass (2019)

Glass (2019)

Quick Review: An underwhelming conclusion to Shyamalan's Eastrail 177 trilogy that clumsily murges the two previous entries, whose distinct tone and feel are too different to be blended seamlessly, "Glass" is an intriguing, if disjointed and thrill-free finale with poor directing decisions, and a bunch of weak twists, which shatters to pieces in the end, and fails to work as both a 'grounded' superhero movie, and an effective psychological thriller, despite all the talented actors involved.

I had a feeling this one wouldn't live up to even low expectations.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Alex, me too. It felt like a mess even from the trailer.

So disappointing. Thought Shyamalan had returned to form with The Visit and Split. Still, McAvoy's performance alone seems to be worth the price of admission.

Arun, I hoped so too, but sadly that wasn't the case. McAvoy never disappoints.
