My Thoughts

I give the Glass Blu-ray a B+.

Glass concludes a 19-year saga that began with Unbreakable back in 2000 followed by Split in 2016.  David Dunn, Elijah Price, and Kevin Wendell Crumb (The Beast) return.

Split is my favorite out of the three but still enjoyed every minute of this film.  My favorite part of this entire film was watching James McAvoy switch between 24 personalities (though we didn’t see all 24).  I have a new respect for McAvoy as an actor.  He just blew me away.  For example, the way he switched from Hedwig to Patricia. The camera during this particular scene was pointing at McAvoy’s legs and you could tell right then that he was Patricia.  Not to overshadow the other characters but I felt that James McAvoy stole the show.

I also like that even though each character (Dunn, Crumb, Price) were super extraordinary in their own way, they all had weaknesses.  David Dunn’s was water, Elijah Price his bones were brittle, and The Beast (keeping in mind he had 24 personalities) was saying his name several times, Kevin Wendell Crumb.  It just shows that no matter how strong and smart you are, everyone has a weakness.
