Glass, 2019 - ★★★★

M Night is not at the top of his game but he is still an accomplished filmmaker and has made a solid conclusion to a comic book trilogy with Glass. There first half of the film is show and plodding but things wake up when the super trio of Bruce Willis (David Dunn), James McAvoy (The Beast) and Samuel L Jackson (Mr. Glass) plan their escape from a psychiatric hospital. Night explores some awesome and unique camera angles during the escape and follow-on battle. He still had that great visual eye as a director. The star of this film once again is McAvoy who goes bananas playing 24 different personalities and actually improves upon his Split performance. It's also nice to see Spencer Treat Clark again playing the role of Bruce Willis' son which ties in well to clips from Unbreakable that Night mixes in.
