Glass, released in theaters on January 18, 2019 and was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, starring Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Bruce Willis. All the actors’ combined with almost flawless directing keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Glass is the third movie in the trilogy, the movie toys with the ideas that disabilities are not a disadvantage. David Dunn, played by Bruce Willis, is the sole survivor of a horrible train wreck and is end up with incredible powers such as super strength and becomes a psychic through physical touch, but he can drown easily in water due to his dense bones. The Horde, played by James McAvoy, is a man with multiple personalities, both good and evil. Finally, Mr. Glass, played by Samuel L. Jackson, his character is extremely intelligent, but he has brittle bones.

The movie works in a good way and a bad way. The story is amazing with twists that will keep you guessing what happens next. Although many good things can be said about the movie, there are some bad things associated with the movie. Bruce Willis’s acting can seem a bit bland. It seems as if he is barely trying, it doesn’t take away from the experience, but it takes away from his feeling as a character who is thrown into conflict simply by doing the right thing. The movie overall is fantastic, and the problems mentioned above are only minor.

Night Shyamalan gives the viewers a look into his own spin on a super hero movie. It is a great watch and was rated 7.1 stars on IMDB and a Rotten Tomato audience score of 78%. IMDB has counted a worldwide gross of $100,467,029 as of January 21, 2019. Although the movie is loved by many fans and newcomers, it is a hit-or-miss experience.
