M. Night Shyamalan
Bryce Dallas Howard,
Actor Bruce Willis and writer/director M. Night Shyamalan reunite after the surprise success of The Sixth Sense for this supernatural thriller. 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?
Elijah Price/Mr. Glass has Osteogenesis imperfecta but is very tall. People with this disease generally don't grow to be as tall as Samuel L. Jackson. See more »
I thought maybe because you're my dad... I thought I might be like you... I'm not like you...
You are like me. We can both get hurt. I'm just an ordinary man.
No, you're not... Why do you keep saying that?

As the movie starts, the FBI warning shatters like a window breaking. See more »
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 »

Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) was born with a rare disease that makes him very susceptible to bone fractures. To motivate him to not be afraid to go outdoors in fear of breaking a bone, his mother rewards Elijah with comic books when he does. As an adult he lives alone and becomes a comic book art dealer.
David Dunn (Bruce Willis) gave up a promising football career after a car accident he wasn't even injured in. He marries, has a son and works as a security guard. He begins to question his purpose in life after being the only person out of 131 people to survive a train accident. And then he meets Elijah.
This is a good vs. evil in the classic sense, and yes, there is a superhero, but not like you'd read about in the comics.
