I liked it but...Ultimately Glass needed: An editor. Someone to dial it back, give it focus, and help to find the truelife moments that make good comics and good comic book movies work.

The problem is Shyamalan has not kept up with the times.
January 18, 2019
A long-winded, thinly-premised, half-baked mess of a movie. It appears Shyamalan has both given up and run out of steam.

An unconventional superhero story that gets too convoluted and lacks all the thrills of its predecessor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Shattered. Broken. Cracked. Insert whichever pun you choose. Personally, this is one piece of glass I won't want to be looking at ever again.

Glass is very mixed bag: compelling when it's good, but numbing and absurd when it's bad.

GLASS' lackluster vibe hints at a director who has become uninspired. It's shocking, but shouldn't be so surprising that the buildup for GLASS ended up being a shattering disappointment.

The 'Glass' is half empty in laughably bad ending to Shyamalan trilogy.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
January 18, 2019
What's frustrating, beyond Shyamalan's inordinate fascination with his own work and his precious final-act twists, is that there really is nobody to root for in Glass.

M. Night Shyamalan gives in to his worst instincts again - to shatter an otherwise promising movie with thousands of jagged pieces made up of overarching theories and obvious plot-twist setups. Great acting and some funny moments can't save it.

A lot of windbag monologues... Paulson's character gets the most of this wretched dialogue -- a character so two-dimensional that the performance is doomed from the start.

With an ambitious and admirable scope, 'Glass' is a film that shoots for the moon but gets lost with too many detours on its journey, leaving us with a jumbled mess of a film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 15, 2019
Shyamalan only half-heartedly attempts to build a cinematic universe. Partly making it a twist and partly building a world makes for a wholly unsatisfying experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 18, 2019
There are some awesome moments and it's certainly not The Happening levels of bad, but, overall, Glass is a massive disappointment.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 18, 2019
Shyamalan - who was so keen on exposing film conventions in his prime - ironically turns "Glass" into a mockery of his past works. This film should've shattered expectations, and it ends up feeling broken.

While its characters might be extraordinary, Glass remains nothing out of the ordinary.

The monotony replacing ambition pushes viewers to be ready for washed-out despondency.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 16, 2019
The relative success of Split seems to have given Shyamalan license to create another indulgent, sloppy tantrum of a film.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
January 17, 2019
I'm glad I had the chance to jump back into the comic-book-fueled world of Mr. Glass and James McAvoy proves to be the film's MVP but Shyamalan takes too long to get to the film's climax that is ultimately a letdown.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

This is not the first time that Shyamalan has been defeated by his outsized belief of his own cleverness, nor assuredly will it be the last.
