James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson
Elijah Price: First name: Mister. Last name: Glass.
Elijah’s Mother: They always underestimate the mastermind.
David Dunn: I’m in security.
Kevin Wendell Crumb: Now who’d like a PB and J sandwich?
Elijah Price: This is not a cartoon. This is the real world.
Dr. Ellie Staple: [from trailer] It’s amazing to meet you. It is simply extraordinary. Maybe this will all make sense if I explain who I am. My name is Dr. Ellie Staple, and I’m a psychiatrist. My work concerns a particular type of delusion of grandeur. It’s a growing field. I specialize in those individuals who believe they are superheroes.
Kevin Wendell Crumb: [as Patricia to Elijah, who has told “her” that he wants to meet The Beast] I hope for your sake that he likes you.
Elijah Price: This was an origin story the whole time.
This is not a superhero movie or an action packed sci-fi flick, this is a psychological thriller with people having supernatural abilities…or do they really have these abilities and are they really supernatural?? Just like in Unbreakable and Split, you will have your doubts and theories but in the end it all ends up going in another direction and then another one.
M. Night Shyamalan tries his best to keep the movie closer to real life than to fiction by essentially eliminating special effects or any kind of CGI. Keeping a steady pace from the opening scenes until the credits, he fills the movie with clever dialogues that bridge the gap between the three movies and adds gritty action to keep the audience engaged. Overall, this fuses into a picture with a 2000s Old School feel about it that cant be seen in too many movies nowadays.
James McAvoy is absolutely incredible in his transitioning between different personalities which happens a lot more than in Split. Sarah Paulson brings a new character and Sam Jackson with Bruce step right back into their old shoes. The cinematography is solid with effective use of colors and in the music department, Shyamalan took a page out of Nolan’s last movie. M. Night is a 50/50 director and this movie lands on the good side with a couple of twists at the end that makes you wonder if this is the end or just the beginning.
Watch both Unbreakable and Split and if you enjoy them then go for this one. The movie won’t make sense if you don’t see the previous two.
