Excerpt: To see McAvoy fully realize each persona with such fluidity, sometimes with nothing more than an expression and a brief sentence, is a thing of wonder to behold. The film in which he shows off this feat of thespian derring-do is anything but.
Excerpt: Shyamalan has come up with a solid, if somewhat underwhelming, idea here…only to undercut it time and time again with lazy screenwriting. The sole reason to see “Glass” is to once again marvel at McAvoy’s tremendously entertaining acting gymnastics.
Excerpt: Earnest and humorless, this is a faux-intellectual Comic Book Guy ponderously well-actually-ing us about shallow superhero tropes and clichés as if those are the most intriguing bits of these stories.
Excerpt: Glass feels very repetitive, as it spends a good majority of its time spinning its wheels while acting as if its pontifications about comic books and superheroes are groundbreaking and unique.

The big Unbreakable reveal that elevated the otherwise uneven Split is wasted in miscalculations to the point where Glass can be weaken a portion of that first film’s favor.
