This is M. Night Shyamalan's followup to Unbreakable and Split.

Reviews thusfar are not great.

Chris Evangelista says: "Editing is the real villain of Glass. Unbreakable was tight and enthralling. Sure, it moved at a slow, reserved pace, but there was life burning in that unhurried momentum. Glass is lost in seemingly endless scenes that clobber the viewer over the head with the same info again, and again, and again."

Yeah this is not good and that review is a great example why

Itís just so talky and flabby. Itís not much of a film as it is an uneven thesis. Scenes donít flow and transition. The editing lacks a heartbeat and pulse.

Thereís shockingly no energy. Like Willis, the whole thing is just lethargic

Unsure what M. Night is even attempting to achieve here? Thereís lots of exposition about how comic books are not history but the message felt murky.
