Glass: M. Night Shyamalan Messed Up Many Ideas into One

Glass is another heroic thriller by M. Night Shyamalan but it is promoted as a sequel to Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016). The movie starts on a happy note but soon loses its track when more characters with different disorders are introduced.


David Dunn (Bruce Wills) has become a savior as he uses his super powers to protect those in danger and need. He comes to know that Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) has a group of cheer leaders in his captivity but little does he know about the superpowers of Kevin. He sets out to release the cheerleaders and fights with the super powers of Kevin. Finally they landed in a mental asylum where a bad doctor starts experimenting on Kevin but another good doctor tries to shield David and Kevin from becoming victims of super powers. In the end, David, Kevin and the bad doctor die and the world comes to know about presence of super powers.
