Trivia

Bruce Willis' character is named David Dunn. It is very common for the "secret identities" of comic book heroes, particularly the Marvel ones, to be alliterative (e.g. Peter Parker, Bruce Banner, Matt Murdock and Reed Richards). Even DC's Superman was also Clark Kent who had a somewhat alliterative name, and many "LL" costars including Lois Lane and Lex Luthor. See more »

Just fantastic
12 September 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Willis finds out some strange things about himself after being the sole survivor in a train wreck. Jackson tells him he's special. Is he really?

Unbreakable really is an act 1 superhero story stretched to feature lenght (Night tells us in an interview). Genius. For once I believe Willis is the person on screen, not that he's playing Bruce Willis, the cool actor. Night uses colors (mostly blue, purple and green) and well chosen camera-angles as imagesystems (word is that the storyboard read like a comic). Most of them really work out well. I loved the slow pacing of the film. It really takes it time to tell us what's going on. As usual Shyamalan puts human drama first in his script. The first scene where Willis meets the woman in the train... You have to see the genius of it. In a few lines of dialog Shyamalan let's us discover the character Dunn.

Another reason why I love this film is because Shyamalan shows he has courage to make THIS after the enormous success of The Sixth Sense, which I think is inferior to this film. I just know the studio execs where pushing for something more tangible than this, but he chose this instead. A homage to comic books. And it works! BEAUTIFUL!!
