The 2019 film “Glass,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan, incorporates ideas from the 2000 film “Unbreakable” and the 2016 film “Split.” The two movies are tied together in “Glass,” with many revelations about the two original movies that fill in the unknowns.

Shyamalan wrote, produced, and directed all three movies in the “Unbreakable” trilogy.. The movie takes place in a mental hospital that houses David Dunn; Mr. Glass, David Dunn’s archenemy; and the multi-personality character from “Split” known as “The Horde.”

In my opinion, the final movie in the trilogy does not capture the full emotional distress that The Horde goes through as much as it was captured in the second movie. In the second movie, James McAvoy who plays the part of Kevin Wendell Crumb, suffers from dissociative identity disorder. His character is definitely more developed in the second movie in the way he portrayed his distress.

As the movie goes on, David Dunn shows the ways he is trying to help the world from the bad identities such as The Horde and Mr. Glass. The three characters are omitted to the mental hospital because they believe they are superhuman and the doctors are trying to show them that they are just as much human as anyone else.

Mr. Glass goes on in the movie to become a hero instead of the villain he is portrayed to be. His main focus in the film is to get the word out about the three of them and the ways in which they are truly superhuman. He goes on to hack into the hospitals security system so that the videos are transported to his mother’s computer so that she can spread the videos around the world.

Overall, the film is well developed but has a slower plot than what I would have liked to see. It is hard to get interested in the film until about halfway through the movie. The first two films had a better plot and were able to keep the focus of the viewers because of the intense situations the characters go through. Although the ties connected between the first two movies in the trilogy are strong and explain the questions viewers have as to why the events occur in the first two movies. I would give “Glass” 3 out of 5 stars for the immense amount of action and good story line to finish off the trilogy.
