    Glass is the third part of a presumed trilogy from M. Knight Shyamalan.

    Coming from Universal seems fitting in some ways, as it harkens back to the Universal horror golden years, in it's similarity to their 1943 Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman.

    A gathering of characters, occasionally for no other real purpose than to have them well... gather. And that includes secondary characters.

    In Glass we're given the former leads from Unbreakable (2000), and Split (2016) - Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis in the former, and James McAvoy in the latter, along with Anya Taylor-Joy.

    Glass is a glorious 4k Blu-ray, apparently derived from a 4k final.

    HDR is helpful with layers of blacks - it's a dark film - while color pops where appropriate. Audio in Dolby Atmos makes itself known most readily in a sequence that reminds me of Royal Wedding, and dancing on the ceiling.

    Glass is an occasionally interesting film, but in the end, not a very good one. More than good enough to visit, and probably to own, as what one would presume to be the end of a trilogy.
