He financed this out of his own pocket, so keeping costs down was no doubt a consideration.
Thanks for the laughs!++ (and I agree....)
Did Shyamalon do is typical extended cameo? Someone needs to tell him he can’t act.
Yeah but it’s early and quick and forgotten immediately
I just got back from seeing this. It was easily the weakest entry of the trilogy, but I still liked it quite a bit. It helped that the building blocks were from two of his stronger movies.
I thought the bait and switch with the buildup to a grand showdown atop Philadelphia's brand new (and fictional) skyscraper was effective. But once Mr. Glass's master plan paid off, I wanted more from the aftermath.
He is absolutely fearless in this role/roles. The character didn't have quite the same impact here, because we already knew what to expect, but he's still just phenomenal.
My biggest problem is that:
Spoiler: Ending spoilers
It felt like they were building toward something with Anya Taylor-Joy's character, and then the ending didn't pay it off.
With Dunn's son, it was about validating his belief in his father, and figuring out that Kevin's father was on the train with Dunn when Mr. Glass caused it to derail. With Glass's mother, it was about appreciating her son for what he is, in spite of all of the horrific things he'd done.
But Split and then the bulk of Glass felt like Casey Cooke's origin story. It was stated that superheroes and supervillains are always paired, and that one usually creates the other, and that Paulson's organization is about defusing the escalating conflict that results from that. Glass created the Overseer, so it would follow that the Horde created Casey Cooke.
So the payoff that she's just helping spread Glass's videos of the superhuman events at the mental hospital seemed very underwhelming.
I liked this movie, was entertained by it throughout. No, it isn't as good as Unbreakable but it stands up pretty well to Split.
Just watched this. Overall, I liked it. But it did not feel like a satisfying conclusion to the story that started in Unbreakable nearly 20 years ago. In fact, I'd say David Dunn was given short shrift in this one.
Disappointing. Willis wasted. Mcavoy excellent again. Terrible makeup.
Some good moments but overall I felt it was a disjointed mediocre unsatisfying film. The only good film in the trilogy was Split. So much potential too. Too bad.
I quite enjoyed this ending chapter in the unconventional series begun by Unbreakable nearly 20 years ago. And while it doesn't have that film's precision, nor Split's small scale thriller allure, it does wholeheartedly embrace the original thesis Elijah spouts from the start of Unbreakable without reservation. It's a film that does not apologize for the niche it inhabits, so while it will always be limited in its mainstream appeal, I watched the end credits roll with satisfaction.
While falling into the normal difficulties with most of his cameos, I appreciated this one because
it canonizes his Split cameo and Unbreakable cameo as being the same person.
For me, it's literally the equivalent to when the record is playing some music, and someone shows up, and the record player's needle skreeches across the record and the music stops...
The cameo is the least of the problems this movie has.
