Glass -Review 2019
I loved it. It’s different. But I loved it.
James McAvoy! The man is truly one of the best actors of our time. He is just fantastic to watch on screen, shifting and splitting between all his different characters and personalities/ identities. He basically steals the entire show.
Bruce Willis. One of my all time favorite actors. He feels very present in this role. I loved being able to see Willis not just return as David Dunn but see his continuation.
Samuel L. Jackson, always cool and always great. He returns as Mr Glass and while I would say he has the least amount of screen time of the three leads, he owns every scene he is in.
Anya Taylor-Joy and Spencer Treat Clark return in supporting roles and while they are only in supporting roles, it really feels right to have them as part of the ensemble for this third and final film.
The story, the tone of the film, the characters, the actors. The technical talent, all of it was so great. I loved the camera work, the cinematography. West Dylan Thordson returns from SPLIT to score GLASS, he finds a way to really capture the shifting tones and emotions of the film.
For me this movie is what I wanted it to be and more. It delivers on certain story beats and action beats that had my freaking out in my seat. It also equally took turns in directions that I was not expecting but I was on board for.
I can see this film having multiple reactions from audiences and fans of this Unbreakable/ Split. And I can see why. My only complaint is the movie ends. I would have gladly watch a three and a half cut of this.
Definitely would recommend. Its a must see for Unbreakable and Split fans. If you haven’t see either films... you should, then go check out Glass!
