Trilogy conclusion “Glass” shattered expectations
On Jan. 19, the highly anticipated end to the “Unbreakable” trilogy hit the box office. “Glass,” directed by M. Knight Shyamalan, features several well-known actors and actresses, including James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and Sarah Paulson.
“Glass” follows three incredible people with extraordinary gifts. They all meet each other when a woman named Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson) finds them and takes them to a psychological facility to learn more about the gifts they have.
Kevin (James McAvoy) is a very complex character because he has Dissociative Identity Disorder. In this movie we get to see 20 of his personalities. McAvoy portrays Kevin’s character well and handles the difficult task of portraying multiple personalities with expertise. When Kevin is especially angry, he becomes an unstoppable monster and takes on the name “The Beast.”
Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) is responsible for derailing David Dunn’s train in “Unbreakable,” the first film in the series.
Elijah has Type I Osteogenesis Imperfecta, which causes his bones to be fragile. Elijah’s alterego is a villain named “Glass.” His inspiration for this name comes from his childhood nickname due to his rare genetic condition.
The main theme of the movie was terrific. In the movie, Dr. Staple told the characters that they were just imagining their extraordinary powers and gifts. They almost started to believe that they were not special. However, Elijah told Kevin that they were special and that their gifts should be shared. While his plan to achieve this goal was not morally right, his idea is correct.
“Glass” is a suspenseful movie that keeps the audience guessing until the credits roll across the screen. Additionally, the screenplay and cinematography in this film made “Glass” a great movie.
