Depending on how ready you are to embrace (or forgive) M. Night Shyamalan's nerdy, talky, intertwined comic book mythos, this trilogy closer is surprisingly enjoyable on many levels.

Through its many ups and downs, Glass still stands as a somewhat decent sequel to two of Shyamalan's best entries.
January 17, 2019
I was riveted with the breadth and depth of Shyamalan's continued dissection of comic book mythology and culture.

In part an oblique reflection on all that is happening in its genre, and I consider it [Shyamalan's] most mature and interesting film since The Sixth Sense.
January 17, 2019
Shyamalan's precise vision is delicately crafted within the frameworks of a comic book, yet it defies and delivers a complex psychological study of the human condition.

An inconsistent but highly entertaining ending to M. Night Shyamalan's UNBREAKABLE/SPLIT trilogy.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
January 17, 2019
The sequel to 'Unbreakable' and 'Split' adds another layer to the glass onion of self-conscious genre riffing.

January 17, 2019
Glass is a polarizing film that combines the strengths and the weaknesses of its two predecessors in a not-altogether-successful hybrid. And yet...there's something fascinating and complex about it nonetheless.

January 17, 2019
A masterful storyteller and for two decades a Hollywood hitmaker, M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass" (opening Friday) is an audacious, ambitious effort to build on his past successes.
January 17, 2019
Shyamalan's talent for primitive scares remains intact in "Glass," as does his love for cramming a whole lot of story in one feature.
January 17, 2019
Shyamalan brings together in Glass the narrative lines of Unbreakable and Split in a satisfying and coherent way. [Full review in Spanish]

If Unbreakable was ahead of the curve, arriving as it did on the cusp of the superhero-movie boom, then Shyamalan's belated new sequel, Glass, is perversely and even admirably out of step.

January 17, 2019
Shyamalan's shot compositions are impressive to behold throughout, making "Glass" often appear like a living, breathing artwork and inducing grins in this reviewer throughout over his audacious shot and color choices.

January 17, 2019
Glass isn't a superhero film as much as it's a sequel to the understated world of Unbreakable and a loving ode to the world of comic books. Approach it knowing that, and you'll most likely enjoy it.

January 17, 2019
Glass is more interested in constant conversation and questioning, exploiting and milking Shyamalan's fascination with the stories we tell, how we tell them, and who gets to tell them, for all its worth
January 17, 2019
... Looks and feels nothing like the superhero movies that have taken over Hollywood in the past decade.

Is it good? No. Is it watchable? Infinitely.

January 17, 2019
A clever but plodding exploration of group psychosis.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 16, 2019
An uneven but satisfying finale to an accidental trilogy that looks like an action/thriller but is really an exploration of modern superhero mythology.

Glass glints just enough for a drink.
