Back from the movie “Unbreakable,” Bruce Willis and Samuel Jackson join James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy from the movie, “Split.” Bruce Willis plays as David Dunn and Samuel Jackson plays as Elijah Price (a.k.a. Mr. Glass). James McAvoy plays Kevin Wendell Crumb and Anya Taylor-Joy plays as Casey Cooke. Together, they join for the trilogy, “Glass.”
According to rottentomatoes.com, “Glass” has been given a 75% liked rating and an average rating of 3.9/5. The movie came into theaters on Friday, Jan. 18 and is 110 minutes long. “Glass” is rated PG-13 for some violence, thematic elements and language.
“Glass” begins with two of the three wanted criminals hiding out in the city. Kevin has commited several more kidnappings of tennage girls to sacrifice for one of his multiple personalities, infamously known as The Beast.
Meanwhile, Casey Cooke is starting over with a somewhat normal life while her uncle remains in prison. David is on a hunt for The Beast to stop the kidnappings but is recognized as a villain rather than a hero.
When The Beast and David go head to head, they are both captured by the police and are transferred to a mental institute with Mr. Glass. Dr. Ellie Staple is a travelling mental doctor and has three days to convince The Beast, David, and Mr. Glass that they are not the heroes they perceive themself as and she must stick to harsh tactics.
For one of her most difficult patients, she realizes that one person can heal them better than she can. In the end, many lives are lost and there are a few plot twists that take create a huge impact on the movie’s plot.
“Mr. Glass” is an exciting movie to watch but only because Kevin is in it and people like to see his other personality, The Beast. The other characters are rather dull in comparison to him. The movie also requires a pretty good knowledge on the plot of “Unbreakable” so it can be challenging to follow if you have not seen it.
In addition, “Mr. Glass” does not have much action either. For a very large portion, the characters are sitting in a contained room. The only real time you will see much action is in the last 30 minutes of the movie which even then, is not that great. And not to mention, the plot is not that exciting either.
The main attraction in the movie is really just the return of the characters. The plot and action are very boring but would be much worse without the characters. The rating given to this movie is very agreeable and suits the movie well.
In short, the movie may not be something to go and spend your money on but if you’re bored on a Friday night and have no plans, then it would be worth seeing. Otherwise, it may just be best to wait and see if it will be streamed onto Netflix or Hulu and see it then so you can save your money.
