Trivia

When a comatose, and hospitalized Elijah Price/Mr. Glass sees David Dunn, his arch nemesis, has joined him in the same sanitarium, he finally breaks from his catatonia and cracks a small, menacing half-grin. This is eerily similar to a scene in Frank Miller's acclaimed "The Dark Knight Returns", as an incarcerated, seemingly catatonic Joker breaks from his slumber with a sinister half-grin upon seeing Batman returning to Gotham City. In both scenarios, the villain regains their purpose and drive once their old enemy returns to the job. See more »

Kevin Wendell Crumb: [as Patricia to Elijah, who has told "her" that he wants to meet The Beast] I hope for your sake that he likes you.

Give James McAvoy every acting award of 2019
18 January 2019 | by Chiller7See all my reviews

This is a thinking person's movie. It's largely dialogue heavy and not afraid to take its time. It's a movie that takes itself seriously. It's the kind of smart movie that confuses critics who prefer light easy-to-digest popcorn entertainment. When it shifts into full thriller or action mode, brace yourself, because it gets totally intense.

Director Shyamalan doesn't get much respect from the critics, but screw the critics, he did brilliantly here from writing to directing.

And James McAvoy deserves every acting award for 2019. Might as well just give him all of them now, best actor, best actress, best child actor, etc., all of them, because no one's topping this performance.

And about the action, I saw director Shyamalan talking in an interview about how he's mainly interested in drama and that action is not his strong point, but he was really downplaying his handling of the action, because the fight scenes here are legitimately awesome. Glass thankfully features none of the shaky rapid-editing style that plagues so many other action movies. It is all well shot, so you'll have no trouble following the action. We even see lots of unusually artistic camera shots during the action, such as showing long close up shots of people's faces while they're in the middle of fighting. My favorite was a long held shot from the point of view of being inside a van while we're seeing a fight happening outside, as the combatants are circling around and slamming into the van. That was just plain cool, the kind of shot that's just mind-boggling to think about how they managed to pull it off.

And don't trust the rotten critics. Just don't. They're so worthless, those critics. They're wrong about almost every movie these days. Glass just continues the critics' rotten streak of being totally out of touch with what's really good or bad.
