Glass concludes the Unbreakable superhero trilogy of M. Night Shyamalan with the anticipated showdown between the lead characters of Split(2016) and Unbreakable(2000) providing mixed results with a lead in to a spectacular battle that never arrives fully.
The Production: 3.5/5
Glass features the title character(“Full name Mister. Last name Glass.”) played by Samuel Jackson locked up in a sanitarium run by Dr. Ellie Staple(Sarah Paulson). Vigilante David Dunn(Bruce Willis) is collaborating with his son Joseph(Spencer Treat Clark) to fight crime and hunt down Kevin Wendell Crumb(James McAvoy), aka “the Horde.”
3D Rating: NA
Glass appears on 4K UHD in its original 2.39:1 screen aspect ratio. Fine detail and shadow detail in 4K are excellent on this disc. The director uses shadows and light to great effect in screen compositions, and this transfer is well up to the task of displaying the hues and detail that 4K disc can provide to perfection.
Glass is presented by default in an English Dolby Atmos mix that makes full use of the sound stage. Directional audio is extremely well used early in the film and never lets up, from the cracks of thunder, ambient noises, and music composed by West Dylan Thordson and James Newton Howard. (Thordson’s score seems to be inspired by the work of Bernard Hermann, which enhances the mood of the film.) The Dolby Atmos audio on Glass takes full advantage of its opportunity to present a sublime sound presentation.
Special Features: 4/5
Special features on the 4K UHD disc include the following:
Glass is an entertaining if somewhat unfulfilling conclusion to the Unbreakable trilogy that benefits from some strong performances by its leads. The 4K video presentation is flawless, and the English Dolby Atmos audio uses its sound stage to full effect. There is a multitude of special features on the 4K and Blu-ray discs. Glass is a worthwhile sequel to Unbreakable and Split even as it fails to live up to the grand conclusion that it teases is coming.https://www.amazon.com/Glass-Blu-ray-James-McAvoy/dp/B07MLB1D7Y/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3A157BB09JIF0&keywords=glass+4k&qid=1555264632&s=movies-tv&sprefix=Glass+4K%2Caps%2C195&sr=1-2-catcorr
