Split (2016) and "Glass" are each eleven minutes longer than their previous entries. Unbreakable (2000) is 106 minutes long, "Glass" is 128 minutes long, and "Split" is 117 minutes long. See more »
Joseph mentions the "mutilations at the zoo," that is, the events seen in Split, as taking place "three weeks ago." Also, several times it is mentioned that the crash of Eastrail 177 was 19 years ago. But at the end of Split a diner patron mentions Mr. Glass having been put away FIFTEEN years before (which was closer to accurate at the time of release). Since the train wreck and Elijah's capture were only a few days apart, both time frames cannot be true. See more »
We keep bringing him sacred food, and nothing's happening. I... The Beast, he showed himself twice to the masses of the broken and-and they're not believing. There's no revolution. I...
Dennis, do not be scared. You have to trust me, as you always have.

If you liked Unbrakable and Split, you will enjoy this one too
This is not a superhero movie or an action packed sci-fi flick, this is a psychological thriller with people having supernatural abilities...or do they really have these abilities and are they really supernatural?? Just like in Unbreakable and Split, you will have your doubts and theories but in the end it all ends up going in another direction and then another one.
M. Night Shyamalan tries his best to keep the movie closer to real life than to fiction by essentially eliminating special effects or any kind of CGI. Keeping a steady pace from the opening scenes until the credits, he fills the movie with clever dialogues that bridge the gap between the three movies and adds gritty action to keep the audience engaged. Overall, this fuses into a picture with a 2000s Old School feel about it that cant be seen in too many movies nowadays.
James McAvoy is absolutely incredible in his transitioning between different personalities which happens a lot more than in Split. Sarah Paulson brings a new character and Sam Jackson with Bruce step right back into their old shoes. Cinematography is solid with an effective use of colors and in the music department Shyamalan took a page out of Nolan's last movie. M. Night is a 50/50 director and this movie lands on the good side with a couple of twists at the end that make you wonder if this is the end or just the beginning.
Watch both Unbreakable and Split and if you enjoy them then go for this one. The movie wont make sense if you dont see the previous two.
