I rated Glass 7/10 on IMDb

www.imdb.com/title/tt6823368

7/10 for an M Night Shyamalan film. I was surprised too.

It has the characteristic Shyamalan story arc. Make sure you catch the end credit scene.

This is a modest-paced film with a fair amount of dialog for the ‘genre’. A nice change. Some might consider it a bit drawn-out. The action scenes are fairly confined and the cinematography gives ambiguity to some of them. This helps maintain the plausibility of the superpowers.

This carries along the idea propagated in Unbreakable and Split that there are people who are capable of superhuman feats. Not flying or imaginary telekinetic powers, but stronger than usual, smarter than usual, and mutable in physiology.

There’s a certain B-movie aspect to the understated nature of a lot of the movie and action compared to the blockbuster Marvel movies. But the limited nature of the FX makes this more like a movie than a video game.

Worth seeing if you liked Unbreakable all those years ago.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
