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

Mr. Glass will go to any lengths to find his opposite number in life -- Is David Dunn the one? Great thriller; any comics fan wil love this!
review by . April 25, 2009
"Unbreakable" is the ultimate postmodern superhero movie: it looks at the comic book phenomenon from the outside (in the form of a character who grows up immersed in comics) while simultaneously giving us the origin story of a real-life superhero. This by itself would be reason to see the movie, but M. Night Shyamalan refuses to rely solely on the intrinsic interest of the plot to carry the movie. "Unbreakable" is a dark, lyrical cinematic masterpiece that transcends the limits of its genre and …

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 …

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>
