Storyline

David Dunn (Willis) is taking a train from New York City back home to Philadelphia after a job interview that didn't go well when his car jumps the tracks and collides with an oncoming engine, with David the only survivor among the 131 passengers on board. Astoundingly, David is not only alive, he hardly seems to have been touched. As David wonders what has happened to him and why he was able to walk away, he encounters a mysterious stranger, Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson), who explains to David that there are a certain number of people who are "unbreakable" -- they have remarkable endurance and courage, a predisposition toward dangerous behavior, and feel invincible but also have strange premonitions of terrible events. Is David "unbreakable"? And if he is, what are the physical and psychological ramifications of this knowledge?

Quotes

David Dunn: Okay, I got you a seat in the yellow section. It's in the nosebleeds, but at least you won't get spit on.
Elijah Price: How'd you know the guy you bumped was carrying a weapon?
David Dunn: I don't know. Maybe it was the camouflage Army jacket he was wearing. Those guys like to carry hunting knives and stuff for show.
Elijah Price: You thought he was carrying a knife?
David Dunn: I thought he was carrying something, yeah.
Elijah Price: But not a knife.
David Dunn: ...I got a picture of a... silver gun with a black grip... tucked in his pants. You know, like on TV?
Elijah Price: You have good ...

Alternate Versions

The Singaporean video version removes most of the struggle between David Dunn and the Orange Suit Man (the man that broke into the family's house). All that remains is Dunn putting his arm around his neck, followed by an inserted recycled shot of the curtains, and ends with Dunn freeing the woman from her bindings. See more »

Very Intriguing Film With Great Ending
1 May 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This is a much better film than I ever thought it would be, and intrigues me every time I watch it. Samuel L. Jackson's role is what mainly inspires me to watch this multiple times. His character is amazing and just leaves me shaking my head.

This is a pretty low-key movie with the other star, Bruce Willis, playing an extremely subdued role for him, almost too subdued. There are times in here when you keep waiting for him to say something, and he says nothing. Half the time he's barely audible.

But he and Jackson play off each other well, and this is very suspenseful film, even if a lot doesn't happen. To explain the story would almost ruin it, because it's preposterous. I'll just call an interesting fantasy-horror film with a little family story tied in with Willis' wife (Robin Wright) and young boy (Spencer Treat Clark).

"Unbreakable" is beautifully filmed, has very little profanity in it, and a strange, strange story with a great twist at the end....one of the best I've ever seen in a movie. This movie is done by the same man who did "The Sixth Sense," M. Night Shyamalan, so if you enjoyed that you probably would like this, too.....although it's so different I wouldn't want to predict who would like this film and who wouldn't. If you're open to try something different, give it a look.
