A "Flip Side" To Every Extreme?

  • Dec 6, 2005
Rating:
+5
What is so intriguing about Unbreakable is the examination of the archetypal elements of comic book superheroes and villains--and if they have true-life correlations in reality.

Samuel L. Jackson, an incredible actor, plays a comic book connoisseur with a congenital disease that leaves him with brittle bones that shatter like glass. He believes that somewhere there must exist his opposite--someone that is never sick and superhumanly strong.

When Jackson discovers that David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis) is the only survivor of a deadly train wreck, Jackson's character pursues Dunn--trying to convince him that he is indeed a "super hero". The ending is surprising and the movie is thought provoking.

I love mystical themes in movies, and this film examines how far archetypal roles stretch out into "reality", if there is indeed a "flip side" to every person and extreme, and an unusual examination of "evil" and "good".
