It's also afflicted with the multiple-endings curse, proceedings dragged out unnecessarily as Shyamalan overestimates how much we care about these characters.

The fights that were there were entertaining.

I expected entertaining, cliche action.

The plot twists were unexpected and very strong so that the movie goer understood how it all fit in.

Glass is well-thought with impressive thematic ideas regarding tragedy, trauma and acknowledgement, and meticulously crafted with powerful performances and splendid cinematography that unifies the look and feel of its predecessors, but its abrupt and underwhelming end due to confusion between cynicism and realism made it rather unsatisfying to be fondly remembered.

Slow moving and silly.

don´t waste your time watch "split" instead (same director)sorry

The result was disappointing, boring and a total mess.

This was full of suspense thriller and confusion.

It will likely prove too slow for those who only liked Split, and too incoherent for those who only liked UnbreakableIt also suffers from an ending burdened with lumbering twists that feel unearned and in need of some more foreshadowing.

There were some confusing timeline shifts that did not feel right, scenes that popped out of nowhere with poor timing, and unnecessary actors and prolonged shots.

The Bad- too many plot holes to count, scene transitions seem desperate and confusing WTH- Unrealistic dialogue, some characters seem like an afterthought, the fightings/action scene are just absurd..If you have not seen any of the previous movies that the main characters are based on, you will find it confusing.

Snooze fest .

What "Glass" does so well is expand the universe and brings this amazing set of cult classics to a satisfying and unexpected conclusion.

Boring .

It was very enjoyable though.

On the upside, the movie's saved by James McAvoy, who's superb as Kevin and all his personalities once again, a slightly exciting score by West Dylan Thordson - who blatantly borrows "Split" compositions, - a commendable, delicate resolution by Shyamalan and a third act so well executed that it'll surely leave you speechless, something that, in one way or another, the filmmaker keeps doing masterfully.

Glass is a different kind of superhero movie, intriguing, dramatic, unexpected.

This movie was dreadfully slow that I really was not interested in following the plot.

Some would look at it as underwhelming, uninteresting, un-needed twist.

It was such a waste of time and of all the directions this film could have gone, it chose an awful one.

Jackson and Bruce Willis that make this movie worth watching and something to remember.

Some might say that she was needed in order to show that the Beast could be better, could be controlled and etc. However, this could have been achieved in other ways, much more entertaining ways.

I understand why the ratings were so low, it's because the first and the third acts were fast paced and entertaining whereas the middle act was dragged and felt tedious and made me want to sleep through it, because if you skipped it, the movie would've still made sense.

The action, when it's there, is pretty entertaining and well done.

The film runs really well, focusing a lot on the psychological level and providing an intriguing point of view on the world of superheroes.

We already have X-men, I don;t know whether this was meant to be ironic, but it just fell very flat, uneventful and quite plainly silly.

There is to much going on , very confusing and extremely long and dragged out .

This is smart, unpredictable, well acted and beautifully filmed movie.

The biggest draw of Glass is its distinction from other superhero films, which makes it a highly enjoyable experience throughout.

This "movie" I can describe as a boring, horrible, stupid mess.

The movie was enough to make me falling asleep under freezing air conditioning.

Much of the problem was the rather predictable action occurring in the hospital with little visual variety.

The fascinating central triumvirate of larger-than-life characters is integral to this: James McAvoy excels once again portraying 20 heterogenous characters, switching effortlessly from the excited lisp of 9 year old 'Hedwig' to the domineering matriarch 'Patricia'.

If u r looking for a movie that u can really get into and one that keeps u on the edge of u'r seat then don't bother.

Everything was either boring or done horrible, I mean REALLY BAD.

The action scenes are few (that's by design) but the movie fails to compensate and some of the scenes in the hospital come off as unnecessary or boring.


THE WORST movie i ever watch..totally bad storyline

I will admit that the "twist" in Glass is relatively satisfying and wholly unexpected.

The ticking clock featured in most of the tracks was very suspenseful and made every scene much more enjoyable.

But it is all a slow very long build-up to something.

One of the worst movies ever made.

The movie is pretty slow and doesn't match the the previous 2.

Glass is half empty .

Overall, Glass is a stunning psychological movie that kept the audience latched on until the end.

Others will think of it, as boring.

The combat feels very boring and reminds me a lot of early 2000s superhero flicks like fantastic 4 and Elektra.

It was engaging, it kept me on edge, and it had twists and turns which are signature to the director that got me just like they always do.

Don't waste your money or time.

This movie entertains for starting 5 mins , after that it gets boring and pathetic and nothing happens in the movie .

Night went back to his roots with this picture- in that he had an intriguing idea which he allows to fall flat before the story can realize its potential.

It was very fun to watch Mr. Glass and David Dunn back on the big screen again, and especially exciting to see them interacting with Kevin and his many personalities.

This movie is just unbearable...

However, after really absorbing and thinking about the ending and realizing what M.

The film will have commercial success since people prefer empty superhero flicks over Shyamalan's more intellectual works.

Finally, despite my complains about Glass, this is actually enjoyable into extent fresh take on the superhero/comic-book movie.

Don't quite get the 'surprising ending' idea, it's entirely predictable and very much a follow on from the fore runner movies.

Glass is an intriguing movie, it does something different in the superhero genre.

While his characters "tragic backstory" is a little bit cliche and his connection to unbreakable was very predictable with his father, by the end of the film I felt as though his character had finally found some piece with Kevin holding the light, at the end.

NMS asks the viewer to suspend any rationale thought as the supporting cast surrounding the three main characters behaves so irrationally it heralds back to the cliche of people in classic horror movies that do the opposite any human being would do except the severely mentally challenged.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen .

The last act of the 3 part trilogy, which is a wonderfully unexpected gem of a trilogy and is only so upon the final films completion.

The beginning is all Split, complete with kidnapped children and McAvoy's intense changeability.


The end is so intense, loved it from start to finish.

There are a couple of short, uneventful fight scenes, with no outcome...

Night Shyamalan just makes dull movies.

The Movie sets in on a thrilling Moment & keeps its Momentum until the very End.

This film was fair, it was entertaining.

It was confusing to say the least.

Glass was well written and directed just like Unbreakable and Split and also had the unexpected twist we all were expecting.

I was just bored pretty much from start to finish.

An Absolute Borefest .

Complete waste of time, boring and full of talking and philosophy

The story is very slow and, basicaly, the whole movie looks to live off of James's different personalities.

Night Shyamalan truly did try his hardest to create a suspenseful, tense and powerful climax to the trilogy.

Shyamalan's best films include an element of the paranormal, the most compelling of which was "The Sixth Sense.

The movie progressively loses its identity and even the usual twist that occurs in Shyamalan's clever films is too predictable to leave a mark.

Unexpected !.

Act two on the other end was tedious and boring and there were no parts that hooked me, it was all about Ellie trying to convince them that they were all just human in the least interesting way - talking to them.

Waste of time.

What a waste of time.

It was so slow moving and could have easily been condensed into a much tighter film.

Twists and twisted action packed.

Once again we aren't trusted with being capable to understand things without someone reiterating them to us, burdening once more the dialogues with over-exposition and, well, boring us a little.

A fighting scene really make me feel goosebump (from exciting) that i didn't feel it in other movies for a long time.

Fell asleep half way through the movie unfortunately.

The first two-thirds builds an intriguing atmosphere, despite spending too much time pondering the question of what it would be like if superheroes really existed (doesn't every superhero film tackle this in one form or another?

Mind blowing!!!!

The story feels both empty and crowded.

However, the two best parts of this movie has to be the cinematography and James McAvoy's performance; absolutely mind blowing how he switched from one personality to another!!!

I love Hollywood movies but hate how most of them are predictable, because no one dares to leave that bitter taste at the ending.. Reviews will stink and cry babies will shout demanding alternatives.

The first hour or so was quite solid in terms of quality, the premise is well set, it's groundend and believable, stylish and most of all entertaining, then comes the cliff dive.

I forgot this movie as soon as I walked out of the theatre.

I'm my opinion they got Glass badly wrong, what's slated for being dull and flawed is actually a terrific movie.

My advice: don't waste your time on this, even if they offer it for free.

This movie is very slow and very boring.


Sure,this type of storytelling is rather hitchcockian, but at least it's extremely engaging.

arguments from previous movies were so pointless.

January is a month for people to see the awards season films they didn't make it to in December and for that reason, it's notoriously the worst movie of the year.

A little slow at times, but there are some exciting scenes and McAvoy gives a very entertaining performance.

The only good thing about this movie was that i fell asleep after 15 minutes and woke up 5 minutes before it ended.

Unfortunately Glass is slow, uninteresting and makes a mockery of Mr Glass (Samuel L Jackson).

The Beast and Dunn are given a resolution the feels confusing considering everything they were put through.

From there the story begins to walk along a convoluted path that will only make sense towards the final stretch, but which is still enjoyable.

A little slow.

It was incredibly original, riveting in the sense that there was a subtlety of mystery in the storyline.

It starts out appearing to be a sequel for two films that actually worked, but it turns into a weird, pointless drama about a shrink.

I enjoyed very much until the End: I expected more from Shyamalan than creating a "background force" cliche ending.

His work with Mike Gioulakis on cinematography duty gives us some great POV shots, and while the poster and trailer shot of the trio being interviewed by Paulson makes no sense visually, you buy into it because it's just a great visual that pops and would otherwise make that sequence bland.

It's the worst movie from the trilogy.

Very clever and thoroughly enjoyable .

Great actors, low-budget, boring story line.

A really entertaining story that come to and end.

Good and exciting story, amazing atmosphere, great camera, scenes that are typical of Shyamalan.

Original and Engaging.

The movie was so slow and kept making me think that there was more, so much more, after all this build up I thought I was going to get a mind blowing ending.

Then the final act was action packed and really good up until the end, which I didn't care for.

I'd like to summarize the movie in a simple statement: "2 hours of slow, boring prelude for a weak ending and predictable twist.

Good actors in a dull movie.

Painfully slow and delivers a nothing burger .

It was mind blowing, Epic, Thrilling, Terrifyingly perfection, Masterpiece with Score and music that blows your mind.

This part is both brilliant and boring: the brilliance is in the way it questions all the beliefs built in the previous two films and in the first act of this very one, leading both the characters and us watching to wonder if we weren't just being delusional.

However it lacks the big conclusion I was expecting and waiting for, I felt empty-handed.

Personally, I enjoyed it for the ideas it tries to convey and the very limited budget M.

Not to mention such lame, typical Hollywood cliché scenes..The only positive point was McAvoy's amazing performance.

The plot twist is good, and unexpected.

It may seem like a superhero story but plays with the cliché to an interesting twist.

Having not seen Unbreakable, or split, glass maybe a bit confusing for some.

The only 3 things that really stood out as being wrong were The obligatory cameo by M Night which was pointless and kind of shameful.

Worst Movie I have ever seen .

The basic plot of Glass was good and compelling, convincing too.

He tells his story's in a slow way, not much action.

And they bore them children who became the mighty men of old, men of renown".

I don't recommend it, though Unbreakable and Split are at least worth watching.

She insisted, that the first marvelous event for David was the train accident, even though everyone knew, even the papers that back in High School days, David Dunn and his not yet wife had a car accident, and nothing happened to him there either.

Everything M Night touches is just tedious and painful.


The end could have been better, exciting and interested.

This is one of the kind, which braking boring box office formula that trending.

Intense at First .

Sometimes, cinema delivers the perfect unexpected trilogy - just ask Richard Linklater, who masterminded the Before series.

M Night expects the audience to already be familiar with everyone and their back story, so we are treated to all of them sitting around in a psychiatric hospital for 1.5hrs. The doctor was annoying, and dull.

The worst movie I've ever seen.

Still really enjoyed it though.

His ideas are compelling and perhaps he needs to collaborate with someone who can give his work a more critical pass before it moves to production.

Sorry for the cast who has big actors and poor Sarah Paulson who is a big actress but with this script is impossible do nothing, except the director who should think is Hitchcock, the movie is boring, touching the ridiculous, without sense, (yes the only memorable was the sixt sense), at least I went with little expectations and how I supossed this director is in the same line that all his last movies.

Sarah Paulson is fine, her character is bland.

Confusing if you have not seen the previous films.

Samuel L Jackson plays the complicated title character Dr Glass, very well, adding the same levels of unexpected moves from Glass, that give the film its ultimate Shaymalam famous twists.

Boy Oh Boy was my wife and I completely blow away by a smart intense and action packed movie that it belw our minds.

Not happy, what a bland mess, people dont talk like exposition flows out of their mouth M.

But 2nd and 3rd act a little slower than the 1st .


The only thing good about this third episode was James McAvoy's performance, Started so well then snowballed into long drawn out storyline with a patchwork ending.

The storytelling was slow and boring, just like Unbreakable.

Terrible -dont waste your time.

The idea of these three characters coming to a head, the best, the hero, and the villain are what made this movie confusing movie better.

Night Shyamalan Release Date: January 18th, 2019 (US) Runtime: 2hrs 9minsPros: Solid first act - Shyamalan's directing - Excellent performances from Willis, McAvoy & Jackson - Kevin's expanded multi-personality presentation Suspenseful action Sleek choreography West Dylan Thordson's slowburn musicCons: Jumbled final act - David Dunn's minor appearance in the last hour - Twist lacks surprise - Annt-climatic final battle -Short Thoughts: A someone who's not been favourable the Shyamalan over the past years, his latest work, Glass, did not leave me in baffling disappointment like Split, although I wasn't really anticipating this movie much.

very very slow.


A decade of gaining fans trust back all to squander it for a static slow character study?

I loved Unbreakable, and Split was refreshing and exciting.

This is a much slower-paced and more Drama/Thriller than action movie (although there is some action here and there).

Utterly disjointed to the point it feels like plots were started and then dropped?

Don't waste your money.

Here was another one of his beautiful, slow dramas about ordinary people discovering extraordinary gifts and learning to cope with them.

Dull .

Of Shyamalan's trilogy ('Unbreakable' in 2000 and 'Split' in 2018) this is the least smart or enjoyable.

" Overall I guess I enjoyed it.

too slow too boring and no action at all

Glass was boring with no more than a few fight scenes, all poorly filmed in some kind of weird first-person style which made no sense.

It really ruins the first set up that was quite engaging.

Anyhow, the problem were the several plot holes, a few minors and a few majors; the poor cinematography with the constant POV which I believe were meant to immerse the viewer but all it did for me was the opposite; the very poor writing with cliché bad nurse who abuses impaired patients, repetitive and unnecessary dialogue; badly directed and hardly believable fight scenes and some other directing issues.

Slow Middle...

I enjoyed it throughly!

They are compelling characters built up over two movies.

Waste of time.

Finally; as I always try to do with my reviews; If you read this before watching the movie - and you are a bit like me - I hope this will adjust your expectations and make the movie even more enjoyable.

Jackson) is still just as crafty; and adding to that, an unpredictable, Kevin Wendell Crumb as the final puzzle piece to that interesting gathering the first trailer promised is quite fulfilling.

I dont like Shyamalan's style anyway, but Unbreakable's sequel becomes Unwatchable ...

And the initial premise of UNBREAKABLE is expanded upon in a rather fascinating way.

Twists are supposed to be surprising, shocking, thrilling.

The movie is very intense and comes to a surprising climax at the end.

All about trauma, identity control and cultural elitism, it has as much intriguing philosophizing as it does action.

While the plot unfolds towards its gut-wrenching climax, Shyamalan elevates the most mundane scene with odd angles, the use of color, and games of light and shadow.

Slow Movie In Malaysian Cinema This Year Goes To Glass ( Score 4.9/10 ⭐ ) .

Great Cinematography of a HORRIBLE - absurd - S L O O O W moving - BORING film.

Save your money.

Don't waste your time.

It was far too disjointed.

Most of the shots in this film are boring, and the plot itself has some major flaws.

Overall, I really enjoyed it, and honestly, I shed a few tears for my heroes in this film that died, especially Kevin.

As for the acting, it was all pretty dull.

The movie was enough to make me falling asleep under air conditioning !!

it's so slow to get started and then it crashes and burns badly!

Maybe we'll get another sequel in 20 years to fully explain it, otherwise the Eastrail 177 trilogy's conclusion feels empty and unfulfilling.

Underwhelming closure to an unexpected cinematic universe .

The movie Glass emerges as meaningful and intellectual compelling.

For me this was the most thrilling and engaging movie of the trilogy.

I enjoyed the originals that helped bring this melded sequel together, "Split" and "Unbroken", but this combined sequel was uninspired and a rather boring plot.

Seen this film a couple of weeks ago when it first came out and I found the film intriguing and also really good.

The film is a mess, from the beginning you see that this is a film that thinks it's super profound and smart, even though the writing is far worse than the writing in Unbreakable and Split, the pacing is incredibly slow, Bruce Willis clearly doesn't care about the film and it really shows in his acting.

Boring plot.

It made me feel incredibly bored, even so much that after a very long time I felt the urge to leave the cinema in the middle of the movie.

It's similar in structure to its predecessor, Unbreakable - it's first act sets up what comes next, and is slow yet suspenseful, the second act is when the action starts, and the third act goes by in a snap.

Tedious .

What a waste of time...

I saw Glass earlier this year and enjoyed it.

Great Acting Bruce is Back On the edge of me seat from start to finsh

Nothing happens in all the movie (although that's not bad), it's really slow, it cooks slowly and it's the best part (unless we are thinking that), but suddenly everything goes to hell in the final act when it started to go up level, TERRIBLE, suddenly a sect appears that wants to destroy superhumans, it doesn't matter if you're good or bad (every good part is in the trailers and clips).

The universe created with Glass, Split, and Unbreakable are almost better than the Marvel or DC universe movies, if you ask me, just because they're more realistic, but they really better stick to the realistic superheroes approach, and keep it high quality, or they're just going to end up being the same as Marvel and DC movies, which I think people are getting used to (I don't want to say getting tired of, since they've gotten better and are enjoyable too, like Ant Man and Deadpool).

Repetative, meandering, confusing and definitely a waste of time.

Worst movie .

Slow and weak on any believable theme .

I am obviously missing the point, as so many people seem amazed by the movie.. How much Split impressed me, this movie has completely bored me.

What an unexpected and awesome ending to this criminally underrated trilogy.

Shyamalan has made a career out of weaving the supernatural with the mundane and, of his seventeen films, atleast eight have relied on twist endings.

nothing happens, poor story like, where was the son when his dad was being drowned?!

This movie spends so long trying to convince characters and audience alike that there's nothing special about our three leads that we're left to wonder if there's anything special about the movie itself, and that draws focus away from four very strong and enjoyable performances in an admittedly lackluster story

It's slow and patient.

But overall, this was a wholly enjoyable movie that had my brother and I discussing it the drive home.

It's just a stunning performance that I think not even the best in the business could pull off.

The action is poorly done and very disjointed.

The plot is really dull.. nothing happens 'til last 20 mins.

Willis is just plain bored, and Jackson is...

The story is fascinating and the movie does not drop a beat until the credits are rolled.

James McAvoy acting is the only reason I did not stop after 30 minutes, this movie is extremely slow with payoff and some of the dumbest decisions by smart people will you see.

It seemed rather slow in the beginning.

The interactions between McAvoy and Jackson are highly entertaining, especially seeing the comedic Hedwig persona interact with the straight-faced Elijah.

However the story just drug on too long and was very boring with a few exciting things thrown in.

Incredibly boring - felt like a waste of time .

It was really a waste of time.

the storyline was very well created and the return of the charactors made this movie very enjoyable.

Unexpected .

Is this movie worth watching?

Night Shyamalan gives us an intriguing superhero series that is unlike any other.

This was, for me, more enjoyable than Split, much more like Unbreakable.

Unfortunately the problem I had with Glass is the pacing issues as the first ten minutes I feel were pointless.

This film is kind of boring, which is a shame because Unbreakable and Split are good films.

The unpredictable twists and an emotional ending will definitely hooks up the viewers.

Every time he is on screen it's fun and exciting.

The evil organization trope is about as cliche as a Shyamalan twist ending, and here they go hand in hand...

While Split revealed a very exciting fact in the closing credits scene, it seems that the secret is out on Glass, Shaymalan's newest film.

Boring .

Night movies, it's anything but a predictable superhero film, and really delivers on the analysis of how the world might REALLY react to the possibility of "superpowers.

A wonderful & exciting story that has kept me intrigued since "Unbreakable" 20 years ago.

Also the movie goes to hell in the third act, and we get to see a very confusing plot twist which is definitely not good.

I'm okay with the fact that there wasn't a lot of action, but there's a LOT of dialogue, but it's painfully repetitive and boring.

The characters and acting are fantastic - especially James McAvoy, who's entertaining as ever in his deliverance of multiple personalities.

In conclusion I would recommend Glass to anyone who has seen unbreakable and split as it is an enjoyable watch if you know the entire story.

Once the characters get to the asylum and are all in the same place, the film comes to a fault for over an hour with boring discussion after boring monologue flooding the screen.

It's a compelling watch all the way to the end because of them.

don't waste your money.

Was there a stunning CGI part of 45 minutes in the movie that eventually was editted out or something.

This movie veers from being amazingly boring to plain idiotic.

The third & final instalment in the most unique, unexpected & unlikely of all franchises, Glass concludes M.

The apparent plot twist in the end was predictable and had me caring not a single bit as I was just waiting for the movie to end.

Yawn Fest .

The narrative structure of Glass is divided into fragmented flashbacks and an unpredictable turn of events that inspire more meaning to the title.

It's different, intriguing and quite dark compared to more known installments.

I was bored most of the time because the story and the characters never progress.

Split's script was written around the same time as Unbreakable so the script itself had a lot of that shamallama charm, the cinematography on the other hand felt lowkey generic, especially after watching Unbreakable right beforehand, but it was still entertaining and James McAvoy did an amazing job and truly felt possessed by multiple different people.

Waste of time

Embrace yourself, because it gets totally thrilling after every drama scene.

In the end i wanted to end this torture, there were people who were yawning.

To those looking for a gripping, vintage Shyamalan film, I enthusiastically recommend this one.

I'm glad others got more from it but I found it long and boring.

It is boring.

Previously 'Unbreakable' was boring and 'Split' was interesting.

The actors definitely makes Glass worth watching, they believed in the movie.

He and I both agree that it's just about the worst movie we've ever seen.

Very good movie confusing end .

Like I said, it is entertaining, definitely - and perhaps it will please the audiences who are used to the almost shallow plots of superhero movies.

I enjoyed the movie until the end: I expected more from Shyalaman than creating a "background force" cliche ending.

I fail to see how it was clever or that there was a twist, it was predictable and disappointing.

This one on the other hand doesn't seem to have that, which makes it feel confusing at best and insulting at worst.

Don't waste time and money for this ordinary movie.

But this movie is just hyping up to a climax that never happens, the movie is slow and boring.

Such a let down, worst movie I've seen in a while.

This is what superheroes would be like if they existed in the real world, not the avengers and superman overpowering, overwhelming and cliche powers.

but am fine with that if the script was okay..two small examples even I can make 10000 examples about how silly this movie is Samuel Jackson mom is same age as him in the movie..he is on wheelchair but how he managed to wear a tuxedo David and the beast fight in a water tank inside it looked huge but when it was breaking down the tank is same size as one I have on the roof Scenario oh well that's the longest boring dialogue i had to encounter So at the end one hero is killed by a sniper sitting on a veggie van painted to look like a cop van and the other was drawn in a water hole by some guy while his son watching with two cops from far and only came to rescue after ..blend movie am outrageous about the fake reviews here.. tomatoes gave it 35% please save ur hard earning money..we should sue that lazy director

Story is gripping and gets your attention until you see the final act.

Hopefully, when I watch it with a full caffeine load, I can stay awake long enough to reach the parts of the movie that are supposedly phenomenal.

Mind blowing!

I still like Unbreakable more but I would say that this was slightly better than Split only because that one dragged on a bit too long.

A lot of the film was extremely enjoyable, an entertainment factor was sustained throughout, but did fall apart near the end, the twists instead of being smart were silly and predictable, none packed any punch nor calibre and did not give the intended response subsequently making the ending excruciatingly poor.

Since the story has been dull all along, the plot twist becomes so meh.

Save your money and wait for it on cable or Netflix .

This is one of the movies that you walk out of the theater and you're still digesting the film.

Slow start...

Don't waste your time.

I had expected there to be more action in Glass because each character had previously had intense action in the previous movies.

Also really dull.

A nostalgic and enyojable conclusion to an unexpected trilogy .

Worth watching, what you expect from the movies

It was just SO BORING !!!

I enjoyed the slow pacing.

Of course I knew the rumors from yore that Unbreakable was intended as a trilogy; but as the years went on and nothing happened, I figured the projected had been abandoned.

The movie is slow paced,very short budget, and i wasn´t expecting a MCU movie, i am an unbrekable fan.

Was expecting Unbreakable + Slip = popcorn!.. instead got weird story line, actors got paid, production got noticed, an entertaining assemblage of names selling the possibility of two previous cinematic masterpieces, resulting in a script with half the oomph.

Waste of time and money, no point in the movie, long and boring

Overacted pretentious BS .

An unexpected end and the last lines of samuel tell the whole truth

I like the theme, but I thought it was a bit boring at times.

Still, a very entertaining and enjoyable movie that I would recommand watching !


James' performance was amazing but the movie was so slow and boring that I left early.

The action is few and far between, but the yawns are a plenty.

Totally enjoyable, James made the movie with his many characters.

Samuel L Jackson, implausibly already 70, is a welcome return as comic-obsessed mastermind Elijah Price, whose Machiavellian schemes make for an intriguing superpower.

There is a beginning, middle and end to every story, but with Superheroes there is a particular formula that's generally more evocative of childhood fantasies and wish fulfillment, making for exaggerated situations and unbelievable showdowns.

Very enjoyable.

If you go in wanting an action packed movie, again, you'll be disappointed.

Every other scene I rolled my eyes because the movie approached everything in the most cliche and superficial way possible.

The final twist is, in the classic tradition of Shyamalan, what I particularly liked is the intertwining of the predictable twist and the one that takes you by surprise that makes the final perfect.

As we get into the third act, things actually become rather enjoyable - probably because things of note are occurring again; Willis doesn't have much to say here and McAvoy and Jackson are, at least, trying.

There is thousands of those in the internet, far more controversial and entertaining.

The movie is intriguing and entertaining.

The first two acts of "Glass" deliver exciting, action-packed drama, bristling with intrigue.

long, ponderous, and lacking a good payoff .

Boring .

It's so predictable and utterly stupid in the last 30 minutes or so.

This would be fine if it was more interesting, but after a promising opening, the middle felt flabby and repetitive and the ending fell flat.

I find this movie pretty enjoyable.

But a compelling mcavoy gets you through to the end.

Every Scene has meaning and they didnt waste any time with unnecessary Digressions.

Night, intense music and an emotionally satisfying ending.

Not M Night Shyamalan's best work, but still entertaining.

Glass is fast paced watchable flick.

This movie is an unfocused, boring mess.

It takes it's time and even when it gets going, it's a slow burn that raises questions.

I think we've become so use to fast paced action that when a film like this comes along we always want more.

The movie started off well but thought it dragged out a fair bit in the middle.


Tedious build up to anti-climax .

For this reason, I would not deem it to be a classic, but an enjoyable experience nonetheless.

Kept me in my seat and when I left the theater I was not disappointed in the least.

Honestly, probably the worst part of the movie it's the slow writing.

Worst movie I have ever watched .

Very boring movie and soooo silly Very boring movie and soooo silly Very boring movie and soooo silly Very boring movie and soooo silly

Willis do the exact same boring guy as usual, the man is a pain to watch for so long now, most of his films are just bait and here more than ever.

The pace is so slow laced with copious dialogues.

Bold, Well-acted, Often Entertaining, Messy .

How Glass (2019) brings the stories and characters together from Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016) is fascinating.


While watching the prolix, dark-hued Glass, I felt underwhelmed, under embellished and at times bored.

Slow , mess and weak !!

There was a time I got even bored.

The thronged masses in the train station at the end, staring numbly at their electronic devices, being exposed to the presence of something unpredictable and dangerous that's been hiding under their very noses - is that us?

One of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Or if you are like me and like split but think unbreakable is way too slow then you'll leave with mixed feelings.

Fun and entertaining .

The final shock being very confusing and leaves you with a feeling of wanting more.

Very intense, again.

Instead, Shyamalan employs the use of interminable drawn out Average Shot Lengths (ALS) with his ALS striking comparison with films circa 1940 to the 1960's.

Unbreakable is a exciting movie GLASS is not, it is boring and even the twists in this film are seen a mile away.

James Mackavoy is always is a delite and his acting is always very entertaining to watch.

Don't go to watch this, don't waste your money and time.

The brilliant James McAvoy is simply breathtaking in his personality change exercise, even more so than in "Split".

However, McAvoy saves the film largely by giving us one of the most unique performances of the year, and the film itself provides for a very unique and intriguing experience, that is bound to capture your attention whether you like it or not.

That little ending to "Split" with David Dunn showing up was cool and unexpected and it served its purpose.

Suspenseful Watching .

Waste of time .

While their powers are later proven to be real, the encroachment of the mundane makes the story intriguing.

Some scenes could've included more information (I don't want to spoil anything), but instead we get little pieces of information and development, and it makes the movie move too slow in the middle, where some rewriting could've taken 10/15 minutes of the middle and make the movie a more fun watch.

Complete waste of time.

But the movie leading up to that is pretty entertaining.

Everything feels incredibly slow, uninspired, uninteresting, and drab.


The slow burning tension that continues to build really draws you in and keeps you engaged.

Wow what an amazing one it's Soo unique and different and the acting was so strong and moreover a strong script to chose and act.. Preferably a best connected movie of Split series watch out for a thrilling one

Always on the edge of my seat.

Night Shyamalan who Wrote and Directed Unbreakable and Split and now He finally has a unexpected trilogy which fans didn't think was going to happen when Split came out in 2017 and Shocked Audiences with the reveal that Split is connected to the Unbreakable Universe and Were finally going to See Bruce Willis Character David Dunn and Samuel L Jackson's Mr Glass.

Yawn .

In the beginning, the film felt slow, then during the middle, it felt fast paced, then back to slow paced near and during the ending.

Director really good n unpredictable especially the ending !!

The movie began very intense and the Actor James McAvoy started on different personalites, which he did quite good.

Jackson all make you feel as if you are inside the movie, living all the intense moments they go through as your own.

But this time I felt my blood boiling as every scene become abstract and disjointed.

Night Shyamalan at his most pretentious and most la-di-da.

Glass 2019 6.6 Act 1 - 6.7 Act 2 - 7.0 Act 3 - 6.2Pros Good acting Compelling moments McAvoy is impressive again Good nostalgia Liked how made you think if superhero's or not Redeemed an almost disastrous end Made the movie real and showed what really would happen in a superhero showdown Supposed to be messy and look unimpressive in fight scenes Made the situation real Diverted expectations in a good wayCons Mediocre cinematography Bad fight scenes Looked low budget at times Didn't tell the right story Stupid bad guy group Shouldn't have killed everyonePlayed with good guy and bad guy tropes in sense that every character thought they were the good guy and they all had good reasons to believe so

Nice acting, but boring/lazy script.

We're talking about Shyamalan, a name attached to both bewilderment and surprise; for better or worse, "Glass," a film I followed carefully throughout the production, is not the first disappointment of the year, but it does be the most bittersweet yet entertaining ride a movie buff will have in the first two months of this new year.

This was a long, drawn-out homage to comic book heroes lacking both substance and imagination.

After an hour, I was beginning to get bored, mainly due to the slow pacing.

Split was brilliant, original and enjoyable?

Given that, if you're really bored and want to get angry at a movie then this would be a good one to watch

Very very very.. boring(

The story is just utterly incomprehensible and has so many twists it just becomes confusing and overly long.

It's fascinating how it realistically blends comic book structures into storytelling, moving along within the canons of the all-time comic book proceedings.

Although, James Mcavoy makes the movie worth watching.

This should be an apotheotic closure to the trilogy with amazing confrotation (that never happens), but for one it didnt close, and for two is was a waste of talent and time.

The first 30-45 minutes it felt to me like it was a bit dull.

It did keep my interest but it is a long movie and slow at times.

And yes, the inane dialogue was just that, pretentious, pointless & a pandering mess.

Glass is dull and forced.

Shyamalan's POV style of action and off-screen terror--while a cliche of his cinematic style--is still useful in creating some pretty cool visuals.

The 2nd act is slower ( not a bad thing) and tries to more complex than it is.

The ending is one of the most disappointing and unnecessarily dragged out things I have seen in a long time.


The major twists are unexpected and the ending is inspirational and makes you wonder what people are truly capable of.

The supporting characters played by Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark, and Charlayne Woodard, are placed in hopelessly contrived situations, behaving merely as vectors to move the story along.

It is still a slow burn film, just like unbreakable, which I enjoyed because I loved the style that unbreakable brought.

Waste your time if you'd like.

My wife fell asleep watching this as it was just frustrating and embarrassing to watch characters behave this way even in a fictitious world.

The supporting characters in this film seem very shoehorned in and have very little plot significance.

The Camera Work & Editing is stunning and the Actors are, just as you can expect absolutely gorgeous and outstanding.

Slow paced, good acting, some weaker than other scripts.

This movie is mind blowing, I mean it has been a long time since I have seen such an AMAZING movie, this is really a movie that is made by a super human mind indeed, the cast and the director of the movie made such an intelligent masterpiece, the movie was unpredictable, It was really the best movie I have watched in a really long long time.

We all know he makes slow movies, to break up that slowness there are action sequences, but those were so underwhelming themselves.

The second act is my biggest flaw with this movie, it was super slow, and confusing.. like how Glass is getting out of his cage?

Beginnings a bit slow...

I enjoyed Unbreakable and Split, but this is unwatchable.

Two-thirds pointless, one-third stupid.

Other than that the story was a bit slow and not enough of action with the main characters.

Did not like it, it was boring, and not because I expected a super-cheesy super hero movie, I'm not even a fan of those.

I found it deeply boring.

The first one was good, but I found it pretty predictable.

To shock us with an unexpected twist that they actually are special?

Thought "Unbreakable" was glacially slow?

This is a very entertaining film that perhaps reminds us not to be friends with psychopaths.

Split was awesome and better in quality but it was some slow.

The movie feels very disjointed.

Predictable, stupid-to some extent, felt again, like a re-heated dinner.

Boring conclusion to a boring trilogy .

His performance's alone is worth the watch, like damn!

I get why it was created the way it was but it was slow and a little boring.

While it's true that the last act of this third installment is insanely brilliant, off-kilter, twisted, as everything surrounding the filmmaker, and cinematically fabulous, act one and two are practically a mess, a deadening pileup of weird decisions that instead of infusing new perspectives into the nowadays suffocating superhero genre, indirectly undermines the exciting plot threads and the style/artistic exercises of the two previous prequels.

No action, no fight scene, boring drama, build up for nothing

It doesn t follow the usual structure of a superhero movie, which would be ok except it just feels awkward, stagnant, nonsensical and dull at many points.

You know it was boring!

Night Shyamalan, he has always been an exciting director.

James McAvoy is a Legend..All in all its a nice movie, worth watching...

Tedious and Silly .

"Glass" is slower.

Good, but kinda predictable.

Very enjoyable though not as impactful as it should've been.


On one hand, it sucks that after this many years, David Dunn is dragged face down through the mud, then drowned in A PUDDLE!

Dull .

It's good to note that also like a lot of Shyamalan movies, the pacing is slow, allowing the cold tone to blossom.

The slow pace and highly intentional camera work make for a very entreating character study.

A total waste of time.

Truly an entertaining film

One of The worst movies I have seen in a long time.

UNBRREAKABLE was a fine, inventive, and above all, exciting motion picture (up until that ill-advised final freeze frame with its docudrama captions.

The end(not counting the last two minutes) was genius, if they stricked with the "before the end" the trilogy would've felt a little bit pointless, i mean, 20 years to get here, so i'm fine with the finale.

This Glass is half empty .

His following project, however, a fascinating psychological thriller titled "Split," was the one that announced to the world a glorious comeback.

The first half of Glass plays on the notion of world's colliding to entertaining effect; Bruce Willis' David Dunn (aka "The Overseer") hunting down James McAvoy's Kevin Crumb (a serial killer with 24 distinct personalities) in a traditional good-vs-evil showdown.

Highly recommend it for anyone who is a fan of M.

In reality, I found this film dull, with very limited story and plot lines, overly lengthy speeches, and a terrible ending.

Save your money !

Boring .

Night going back to his pretentious roots.

I was just expecting something more shocking and entertaining really.

Shyamalan knows how to build a huge approach to history, which for those unfamiliar with the previous films may seem tedious, but pays with an exciting final third exciting full of twists and revelations quite satisfactory and consistent with the world that history presents.

Waste of time!!!

Really boring movie & nerve-racking .

Glass, Shyamalan again delivers a movie with incredible twists, fantastic cinematography and a great script, that surprises and give a more than satisfying ending, to this fantastic trilogy that shyamalan has created, the second act feels a little boring, for me to give my perfect grading to this film.

Poor script, poor effects, bizarre storyline and worst of all boring.

Even though he doesn't have much to do in the first act, Samuel Jackson shines as Mr. Glass/Elijah Prince he is super entertaining to watch and does a great job.

A Great conclusion to this unexpected trilogy .

And though there are a few shortcomings & mishaps along the road, the film as a whole is way better, gripping & more interesting than what the general consensus is designating it to be.

Waste of time .

I love this film, thoroughly enjoyable and held out attention throughout.


Worth watching again.

A ponderous piece of ****

To say that I became immersed in it, is an understatement.

Complex characters and a fast paced story make this final chapter a worthy conclusion.

The first half of the film gave us action packed reimmergence of Bruce Willis.

It's slow paced and dialogue heavy so don't expect a fun, exciting movie.

Great pacing from the movie as well, but boring storytelling.

Disappointing slow ride to an unspectacular finish.

BUT if you are looking for a action packed M.

The actors and actresses did an amazing job, but the storyline is confusing.

fell asleep for a bit...

I waste a couple of hours of my life .

The same boring "cinematic" scenes, are being repeated and tbh I hated watching Sarah Paulson's face trying to fit into the whole screen again and again.

Break the cliche .

But I found it plodding and rather silly.

Worst movie in my life .

Overall it's engaging enough to be watched by interested people.

To be fair to the movie, my rating came immediately after waking up in the middle of it, because it is so mundane and plodding that it will easily put a viewer to sleep unless properly prepared.

Even the action was boring.

Glass starts like an intriguing supernatural thriller with bleak atmosphere as three men with mysterious powers encounter at a mental institution.

I found it fairly tense and engrossing throughout.

Very enjoyable movie.

The movie goes on and on like this and becomes rather tedious.

What a waste of money

You need lots of patience to enjoy this, but i got bored and could not finish it.

However it's the unique mix of these stories from the pre released films brought together in this informal trilogy and their unexpected relations mixed with a modern day classic comic book style film, that I firmly believes has brought him back to that high standard.

Despite its flaws, however, Glass was an overall satisfying film that brought to the table many great interactions and intriguing themes, along with a great sense of care from M.

He is fascinating.

In summary, Glass seemed a confusing mess to me and my movie theatre-working friend.

Glass is a slow burner like its predecessors.

An unpredictable and good ending to a long trilogy.

We feel empty at the end waiting for a surprise after credits...

To understand the most prodigious of his storytelling machinations, we have to go back in time, exactly when "Unbreakable," a modest, riveting blend of drama, suspense and thriller, starring two of the most beloved movie stars of the 80's/90's, opened long before Christopher Nolan's "Batman" trilogy officially kicked off the modern superhero genre, this being also one of the last lucky offerings before "The Last Airbender" and "After Earth" destroyed his reputation.

"They had so many ways to execute so many parts of the plot and the story in general, but so many defining points where just flat and boring and cheap.

The plot jumped around too much and was hard to follow.

First movie that I left early since....

Entertaining again .

Entertaining throughout...

I enjoyed it very much and would definetley watch again.

but confusing.

Why an empty hospital for hours after Darryl gets killed?

Top 5 worst movies of all time .

After the 60 minute mark things also become predictable and obvious which removes any interest or reward in viewing leaving only a hollow shell of a film.

The movie is strange and confusing at the same time.

Jackson) is being held in a psychiatric ward and him being so heavily medicated to dull his intellect made some sense to me.

Until we realized that generations have been indoctrinated by propaganda promulgated by establishment institutions seeking to uphold their own vested interests at the expense of social and ecological well-being, until we woke up to the fact that we had been taught an upside-down view of the world, until we understood that the criminal is just like anyone of you surviving under more difficult circumstances, only then could the ANTI-HERO's story be told.

From McAvoy's incredible performance, to a great background score, and an engaging screenplay.

Maybe if we saw some unusual people watching it, people that have some sort of mundane version of a super power, and get inspired, the ending would have more impact.

Fails from a filmmaking standpoint but semi-ironically enjoyable .

Too boring .

But other than that, the movie gets super boring, Poulson was PATHETIC as the psychiatrist (really, The Purge levels of pathetic acting).

The super feats were mostly a few cheap lifting of heavy things; cheap tossing scenes; cheap bang into solid structures leaving dents, etc. The introduction of a psychologist as superpower naysayer was interesting at first but soon got weaker as a bland character w/repetitive weak arguments against superhero traits.

The movie isn't all bad, Samuel L Jackson and James McAvoy were amazing in their respective roles(even though the writing was pretty bad at times) and the final act was mostly enjoyable.

I actually had to watch it 3 times as I literally fell asleep watching it every time.

His performance's alone is worth the watch, like damn.

I enjoyed it .

Don't waste your time.

It's not about people wearing spandex costumes, flying all over the universe destroying half the world (especially America) in the name of saving the world, with mind blowing & rhetoric VFX and having melodramatic sacrificial theme at the end.

The lady that plays the psychologist was super boring.

A good end to the trilogy with excellent acting making up for a slow plot .

It is clever that Shyamalan's addition to the Superhero Universe trend is as self-aware and meta as any sequel to Unbreakable should be, but all that stuff can get trite as well.

Boring setting, boring characters, stupid script I could keep going but what I am trying to say is don't see Glass it's absolutely terrible.

There is not, one, not two, but three twists at the end; one of them I found really contrived and lame.

I actually really enjoyed it for its deep meaning and how the director reflected the whole superheroes genre into real life scenarios.

Let me start by saying that Unbreakable was te worst movie I ve ever seen in the cinema.

It's a great concept let down by poor writing, low-budget execution, and a repetitive, uninteresting storyline.

Gotta say, Bruce Willis is a nice fan treat, but his actions were slow and low.

Enjoyable throughout the entire movie.

It had some funny moments from James but it so slow, waiting for something to happen and nothing did.

It's just that Glass also has contrived plot conveniences a plenty (the hospital is remarkably understaffed when it needs to be and the twist makes us question why certain characters are explicitly allowed to walk the Earth without receiving a Rick Dicker treatment), tonal issues, and clunky expository dialogue.

It's just boring.

Glass is well-thought with impressive thematic ideas regarding tragedy, trauma and acknowledgement, and meticulously crafted with powerful performances and splendid cinematography that unifies the look and feel of its predecessors, but its abrupt and underwhelming end due to confusion between cynicism and realism made it rather unsatisfying to be fondly remembered.

The main problem with the film is that it attempts the impossible in reconciling the disparate tones of the exquisitely slow-burning deconstruction of the superhero tale in Unbreakable with the taut, horror-tinged paranoia of Split, a psychological thriller.

I like other films from this director/producer and was so positivebut this had no story at all.

Boring, had to struggle to stay awake .

Worst movie of all time.

Far Too Slow .

Glass eventually builds to a climax between The Overseer and The Horde, and an unexpected plot twist which angered many moviegoers, although Price achieves his goal of revealing the existence of superhuman individuals to the world.

My only complaint was there were just a few pointless twists and I didn't like how they handled Bruce Willis' character in the end.

The dialogue is dreadful, the pacing is bizarre, and the overall scenery is watered-down to the point of being boring.

I was absolutely in love with this whilst watching it, everything added up, it was enjoyable, everything g was going in the right direction, original actors playing the same characters, story was good Mcavoy was just amazing, everything was going great!

A movie that keeps giving you goosebumps and sometimes a laugh, but mostly keeps you on the edge of your seat.

This was truly a boring flick, and nothing exciting happened the entire movie.

I kinda understand what Shyamalan was going for, and this wouldn't be as off-putting for me as it was if David had a compelling character arc that lead to this, or if he simply had more to contribute to the overall narrative.

It was very interesting and unique, but in this movie, it got boring and tiring.


I wouldn't waste all that money going to the cinema, though.

Don't waste your money because i have done already.

Thanks, this is a favorite and very thought proviking story that is entertaining and not as scary as Split.

Nothing happens and the end is a big anti climax.

Also, pointing the finger at Shyamalan now, the fight scenes in here feel drab and lackadaisical on his part.

everything is underdeveloped, sketchy, poorly toned, boring.

Worth watching.

Ok storyline but a bit boring, I've seen all 3 movies now.

Glass is ineptly paced and written, with broadly drawn supporting characters, too-obvious motives leading to a predictable "twist," a lack of suspense, and virtually no payoff.

Go cinema and try this movie if you had insomnia during hot weather season.

And so we'll continue to get bad thrillers, action and superhero movies full of CGI, pointless explosions, and boring, by-the-numbers, sequel-hinting storytelling everyone wants - and cynical shareholders will continue to get richer while creative filmmakers see their opportunities dwindle.

But the movie it's so boring.

If it was at all: the dialogues are so bland that you fall asleep under them, the ending would be nice if there were not one and a half hours in front of her in front of her.

Really weak, even boring .

Glass is an fun, enjoyable, dopey, psychological thriller.

Also, there's plenty of suspenseful scenes and that's expected because M Night has mastered those over his career.

I really enjoyed it!

A Glass half empty .

The exposition of the movie is brilliant, the rising action is promising leading to a tense climax but the falling action is disappointing and the resolution simply uninteresting.

He is stunning as he mangaes within few seconds to change evrything about his character.

If they were all three then it did the job very disjointed.

Something fast-paced, action packed, and rife with special effects?

The previous films are thrilling, psychological observations of the human psyche in the superhuman form within two separate stories.

Pretty predictable 'twists', slow and cop out ending .

For a thriller, we went in expecting far more action and thrill, but sadly it was mostly talking for the first hour and, at times was filled with confusing silent moments between characters that felt empty and did not add to the suspense at all.

What a tedious introduction, huh?

Amazing intense dramatic events with mind blowing ideas.....

Extremely lazy writing, horrible directing, just a complete waste of time.

Bruce Willis was a bit pale and the most uninteresting and almost invisible of the cast.

Very drawn out and got boring long before the half way mark of the movie.

), the story is intriguing, and the ending is exactly what your typical superhero film isn't.

Nothing happened, most of the stuff was very predictable.

Well worth the watch.

For this film to be worth watching at all, I recommend you watch Unbreakable and Split first.

Unbreakable was too slow for my liking (sorry!

Boredom at Ravenhill Memorial .

But Split seemed interesting and meanwhile the trailers for Glass were coming out, and they were so exciting I had to watch them for closure.

One of most boring and pathetic movie ever .

It is predictable.

So in the end, Glass is a film that is worth experiencing in the theatre and it may not be the best M Night Shyamaln film, but it's still worth the watch.

That was unexpected.

I found it to be boring and uninteresting for the most part.

Painfully slower.

Pure drivel and boring beyond belief.

That's the thing with Glass, it's at its most interesting and engaging when it plays with expectations and meets expectations.

As the movie progresses however, it loses some of its atmosphere, creativity and wit as the film turns from a psychological thriller into an action film where the fascinating three main characters are degraded to superheroes that could come straight out of the uninspired, repetitive and stereotypical Marvel universe.

Waste of TIME .

"Glass" is a tedious and boring film to watch.....

By comparison, Mr. Glass and David Dunn appear dull and dreary.

The settings are also quite intriguing as the mental institution has a vibe of insanity, isolation and secrecy.

With this cast, make a completely empty and meaningless film - we must still try.

Most boring 2 hours of my life.

In reality it's pretty much a confusion and disorder of two genre that didn't know what it was.

Feels B and empty.

Past that, the movie is rather boring.

It let me with an empty feeling, like I needed to see more.

James McAvoys absolutely stunning performance.

Don't waste your hard earned money!
