Movie Review: Glass
Glass is a thriller-superhero movie based on the fact that ordinary people can have extraordinary gifts. And superhero comics were based on reality like the fact the original Superman in 1938 couldn’t fly only jump far. It wasn’t until 1941 that he flew for the first time (kinda like how Wonder Woman never flew outside of her invisible jet until 1985).
All three men: Mr. Glass (aka. Elijah Price played by Samuel L. Jackson), The Beast (aka. Kevin Wendell Crumb / The Horde played by James McAvoy) and The Overseer (aka. David Dunn played by Bruce Willis) have been captured and taken to a psychiatric ward. There a doctor, Dr. Ellie Staple (played by Sarah Paulson) has three days to convince them that they are just men with no special abilities.
I loved the acting of both Samuel L. Jackson and James McAvoy. However, it felt like the movie was incomplete. Like as soon as things started to heat up in action and suspense, the plug was pulled. And as smart as ‘Mr. Glass’ was, he should’ve figured out sooner about the doctor’s truth and played off her more.
Overall, I did like the movie and hope they make more. I loved that they brought the minor characters from both previous movies of Unbreakable and Split back for this one. Out of this trilogy, I thought Split was the best followed by Unbreakable. Glass needed another half hour of action and suspense in my opinion.
My rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
