Glass

Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis reprise their “Unbreakable” roles Elijah Price also known as Mr. Glass and David Dunn. Joining them from “Split” is James McAvoy as Kevin Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within him. Also Anya Taylor-Joy joins “Glass” as Casey Cook who was the only person to survive an encounter with The Beast.

“Glass” picks up following the conclusion of “Split” where Crumb’s superhuman figure The Beast is being shadowed by David Dunn in a series of escalating encounters that lands them both in a mental hospital. Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) is already there. Once they all find out they are together again Elijah Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets that are critical to both Crumb and Dunn. The story unfolds from there…

I am not sure what I expected, but this movie was just plain crazy. It’s almost like a deconstruction of a series of events that have happened in the lives of the three men, Dunn, Price and Crumb.
There are times of clarity and then there are times of confusion. There are a few interesting scenes and some interesting action and intrigue, but unfortunately that’s not enough to make “Glass” a good solid movie.
“Glass” is not the worst movie I have ever seen, but it certainly is not the best.

I am not sure that I would watch “Glass” at home on a Saturday night with a tub of popcorn…

This is a 2 Star Movie!!
