The indiskfødte director M. Night Shyamalan has since the breakthrough of the really quite promising 'The sixth sense' (which, however, did not win much at a reunion) in 1999 made a career out of nonsense and nonsense - like a paranormalt twist - served in a profound, pompous tonelag. His trademark is the 'surprising' plot twists, which, on closer inspection, mostly turns out to consist of paper-thin postulates and warm air.
His previous film 'the Split' (2016) revealed in literally the last moment to be associated with 'Unbreakable' (2000), and the 'Glass' is as the third chapter in the story. If it remains a trilogy, not implied here, for the less you know about the course in advance, the greater is the questionable in Shyamalans film.

It also makes them a little hard to review, because it is mainly the really silly plotkonstruktioner, that makes them so poor and them may after all not such a pill from each other without divulging it, which, after all, would be poor.
We can, however, reveal so much, as most of the film takes place at a? o batman, where the two stjernepsykopater Elijah Price, also known as Mr. Glass due to its brittle bones - played by Samuel Jackson with a really bad hair day - and Kevin with the 24 personalities, including seriemorderen Animal - like in 'Split' quickened by James McAvoy with an energy and a talent there had been worthy of a better cause - is inlaid together with the invulnerable vigilante David Dunn - with Bruce Willis in the role as, well, Bruce Willis.
It means long terapisessioner under the leadership of psychologist Ellie Staple (Sarah Poulsen, who didn't even believe in his role), which mixes the unbearable doses of lommepsykologi with the tegneseriebaserede superheltemytologi, as Shyamalan shown want, to we take the plain truth.
movie Reviews - 8. mar. 2018 - at. 11:12 Trite and unimaginative: Bruce Willis goes crazy
I am ashamed fully aware that in chapters framework has to know the limits of the probable, but it should preferably make some kind of sense, while the story unfolds. It succeeds not here for the Shyamalan - who again itself stands for the helpless manuscript, if the attempt to humanize the superhero has the exact opposite affect. Yes, often we find ourselves beyond the limit of the involuntarily comical. Apart from that it's not even particularly fun. And no, there is not the shadow of a glimpse the eye here. It is shame all very serious.
It means also that both the tension and the discomfort is virtually non-existent, while open-mouthed witness to two and a half hours of raving nonsense, which I can't remember when I last have been exposed to in such compressed form. which a large budget and highly paid stars in no way manage to cover the over.
It may seem a little birth of preterm babies, already proclaiming a 'Glass' to one of the year's worst movies just a few weeks into January, but I hope so indeed, that I have the right. Otherwise it becomes a very long filmår.
