Glass (15)


US drama in which three people who believe themselves to be superheros are placed in a psychiatric hospital.

The critical consensus

Essentially a Split sequel with an Unbreakable topping, this is weaker than either of those films but still has a decent amount of entertaining and creepy sequences, most of them due to McAvoy’s high-commitment performance.

Shyamalan concludes his secret trilogy with a film easier to admire than love. McAvoy is terrific again, but Glass doesn’t quite live up to the lofty heights of Unbreakable and Split.

***(*)(*)Matt Maytum, Total Film, 09/01/2019

Well-acted but flawed and self-congratulatory trilogy closer from M Night Shyamalan.

***(*)(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 16/01/2019

The director unites Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy from earlier films in a pointless supernatural sequel.

This is all so, so silly. But fun!

***(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 17/01/2019

This psychological superhero movie is absurdly contrived, even by M Night Shyamalan’s standards.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 18/01/2019

Shyamalan botches his big twist ending by over-explaining the mechanics of a genre with which we’re all now thoroughly familiar.
