Cool premise, very nicely worked out. I love the way he placed subtle hints in the story that led to the conclusion.

review by . January 26, 2010
What if everything you read in the comics were true? What if superheroes were real?...
Society for  almost a century now  has been enthralled and enchanted by the world of comics  you've read the harrowing tales of  Super-Man, you've traveled into the dark depths of Gotham City  with Bat-Man  and you've seen the darker side of heroism with Dare Devil, Ghost Rider, John Constantine, Iron Man  and even Spider-Man. But here's the real question what if those stories you've read were real? What if the tale of an invincible man or a man who could …

With all the hype to this movie, I thought it was going to be a top-notch thriller. Instead I found a slow-paced movie that I kept waiting for something occur. Bruce Willis gives one of his sleepiest performances as a security guard, who has unbreakable bones and seems to be able to sense bad people.      Samuel L. Jackson is the opposite in that he was born with incredibly weak bones and goes through life constantly in and out of hospitals with fractures. His one solace in life …

M Night Shyamalan's second movie has a great twist ending that when you look back upon what goes on, you'd be surprised that you didn't see it coming. Not bad but you can only see it once.

Pros: Samuel Jackson, the idea of the movie     Cons: Bruce Willis     The Bottom Line: for Willis fans only     This was a strange one, unless you absolutely love comics and super heroes. Actually, the concept was sort of unique, but coming off The Sixth Sense, you pretty much knew how this one was going to end.      David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is our local hero this time. A security guard at a college football stadium, …

Pros: Good script; Bruce Willis was great     Cons: I hate Robin Wright Penn; annoying cinematography; the toddler that sat in front of me     No, the title of this review doesn't have anything to do with Unbreakable, M. Night Shyamalan's answer to his box office smash The Sixth Sense. It has to do with the four-year-old girl that the parents sitting in front of me and my date decided to bring to the movies with them. I'll get into that later. I just wanted …

Pros: Good Cast.     Cons: bad ending.     Last year, Hollywood was abuzz with excitement over the little hyped film “The Sixth Day” that had become a huge hit, and had turned its young writer director M. Night Shyamalan into one of the hottest properties overnight. The film went on to break the 200 million mark, and entered the phrase “ I see dead people” into the American lexicon.    The only question left regarding the film, was how would the …

About this movie

Wiki





This suspense thriller unfolds as the audience is introduced to David Dunn. Not only is he the sole survivor of a horrific train-crash that killed 131 people he doesn't have a scratch on him. Elijah Price is an obscure character who approaches Dunn with a seemingly far fetched theory behind it all. Written by Filmtwob <webmaster@filmfreak.co.za>

Security Guard David Dunn miraculously survives a catastrophic train crash outside Philadelphia. Not only is he the sole survivor out of 132 passengers, he also is completely unharmed. A little later, comic book specialist Elijah Price contacts him to confront David with an incredible theory: Elijah, who has been nicknamed "Mr. Glass" due to his more than fragile bones, thinks that David has got all which he himself lacks. The two of them "seem to be linked by a curve, but sitting on opposite ends". First, David does not believe the strange man, but every single thing he had said proves to be true: David has never ever been hurt or sick in his life, his physical strength is larger than normal and he has a skill which others don't. Slowly, David begins to discover the shocking truth behind Mr. Price's assumptions. But after all, David's fate is not only to find his real place in the world. It also is about proving Elijah's theory of his own existence. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>
