M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable is very rare class of superhero film, trying to be incredibly logical, while also having plenty of absurd moments. This is okay, sense the director's other films have also followed a similar formula... But, typically with his films you find yourself taken away by the emotional drama and characters, and the films move along so quickly you never really get a chance to stop and question the logic behind the events, because if you had the chance to question it you'd …

How does one classify this movie? Some might call it a drama, as the slow pacing, muted emotions, lack of comedy, and modern, urban setting all fit the descriptions of many modern dramas.

Unbreakable silently sneaked its way onto the big screen, then vaporized as if never there. Why?! Bruce Willis plays someone that is on the edge of loosing everything: his family.

The once avid spark of love has fragmented and broken, and for this reason, he takes a train ride to get a new job in New York. If the job turns out, he is leaving …
