So I saw "Glass" this weekend, despite having to work almost the entire time.
Anyway, I got pissed Saturday with something I was trying to figure out on a mail server. Went out that evening and saw "Glass" at a neighborhood theater. And I just thought it was awesome. M. Night Shymalan, invested 20 million dollars of his own money in the film. I am so glad the film has made money. I thought it was well written, well acted, made some good philosophical points. I mean, if you don't watch the film all the way until the final act, it would not make any sense. Maybe that's what the critics were complaining about. Of that I am not sure. I only know it was a great kind of. . .anti-superhero film. In the age of dozens of Marvel/DC films coming out yearly. This is a film that stands in stark contrast. The film is not about villains and good guys. Just people with different agendas. Not that I am defending mass murderers or psychotic killers. But there is much more depth given to these characters. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't give away the plot.
I will only say, it is intricate and detailed. And when you think you have things figured out, you can be certain that you do not have a clue. I hope Shymalan comes back and does more films in this "universe". It is kind of refreshing to have films like this. Where people have these extraordinary abilities, but have to deal in a world that bares a closer resemblance to our everyday lives than Marvel/DC.
Three and a half out of four.
