Glass may not stick the landing every time it tries, but it more or less lands with steady footing. Shyamalan, directs the shit out of this movie, and that is both a strength and weakness here. The screenplay, tends to buckle when things get too deep. However, most of the movie takes some big swings, and for that, I quite admire it. The movie does slow down a lot, but that's expected given what we had in Unbreakable and Split. Night, uses to his benefit, fantastic performances to sell all of this. The entire cast, is wonderful here. McAvoy, is just as good, if not better than he was in Split. Bruce Willis, is great, returning as David Dunn, and Jackson, is also solid. The main issue with Glass, is some of the overindulgent storytelling. Night, clearly has something to say, but it doesn't always come out clear. Sometimes, it can be downright gibberish, which is a bit frustrating. Still, when Glass is firing on all cylinders, it often feels like a masterpiece. It's a shame that it isn't quite all put together though. I personally loved where the film headed. The journey just isn't always a smooth one, which can be frustrating.
