For one special security guard, tracking people down is a paranormal sort of hobby. Able to use his rare abilities to find people, David Dunn is suddenly given a job that seems more daunting than all the others before it. He'll need to find Kevin Wendell Crumb, and time is of the essence. But part of the problem is that Crumb is an extremely disturbed man and with 24 personalities, he's a lot more complicated than the others Dunn has found.

The movie Glass is for sure one of the best superhero/villain movies I ever watched it's about 3 people that supposedly are the first people in the universe that have superpowers. The first person has a power where he is extremely smart but has very brittle bones, even the slightest touch can break his bones. The second person has a power where he is extremely strong and can look at people's past but he has a weakness where he is very vulnerable to water. The last person has a power of the beast where he has a disorder called D.I.D and can have 23 personalities and one of his personalities is the beast a very strong but weak character. This movie isn’t your typical superhero film it gives you a really good background on who everyone is and what their childhood was like. This movie gives us a view of each supernatural and how they deal with their superpowers with the public and how they think when something extraordinary is about to happen. For those reasons I would give this movie a 5/5 rating. @Teen15 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

I loved this trilogy..Kevin Crumb not in jail.. The Dunns run a security business & Mr. Glass orchestrates the whole thing. We are left wondering what dark forces are trying to eradicate superheros.

Who would have imagined the depth of McAvoy acting..Of Clan Maclaine of Lochbuie.

Note: In April 2015 McAvoy pledged £125,000 to help fund a ten-year scholarship programme at his former drama school, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS). The fund will help those aged 25 and under who would otherwise be unable to afford tuition at the school. Applicants will need to demonstrate that financial cost is the main barrier to their accessing pre-higher education drama training at the RCS.

Quote: If you can't empathize and imagine what it is like to be somebody from somewhere else your world becomes very small and you can only do one thing. I went in there [the RSAMD, now renamed the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland] being able to do 'angry young Glaswegian' and that was about it really. I came out being able to do a lot of the stuff that I've done.

I watched the whole movie expecting something exciting to happen. There was no explanation of the psychiatrist trying to 'cure' each character; the preparations that had been made to each of the characters holding cells; the totally blank and flat reactions of the hostages of Kevin's: so much of the set up did not make sense and therefore the movie was flat, with a really poor story line. There was no edge of your seat suspense. I was very disappointed.

I really liked this film, and the series of films. Honestly, they are a bit disturbing, which I did not find unenjoyable because these are fantasy films. Exploring the psyche of origin stories, the real world comic book infatuation based on simply our interest in exploring hyperbolic representations of our abilities, and what if there were people who really did have exaggerated abilities far beyond normal physical limits? A really creative and wonderful world Shyamalan has created. Well done. Really enjoyed it.

I have always found myself rooting for M. Night Shyamalan after having been both moved and impressed by one of his earlier works: "The Village." To me, this film offered a fresh approach to both subject matter and story line. Subsequently, I have seen 3 other of his films and been roundly disappointed. Such was the case with his latest offering: "Glass." I kept thinking something unexpectedly amazing (in any direction) was about to occur.......but it never did. I can think of but one word to describe this film: flat. Even his characteristic cameo appearance was flat (unlike the pithy cameos of the late Stan Lee). As always, the story line seemed unique and the approach novel, but in the end, it never proved through. With one of the central figures---even to the end---I was confused as to his role, superpowers? or relationship to the others. M. Night Shyamalan does bring a unique perspective in his films, however, as with "Glass" I find myself quite disappointed with seeing that perspective fulfilled.

READ:
Glass is the 3rd movie in a Trilogy about these characters, the first movie was “Unbreakable” Staring Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson. The 2nd movie is called “Split” with James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy, and of course the 3rd movie is called Glass Staring all 4 of them together. Bruce Willis is Unbreakable, James McAvoy is Split (as in Personality), and Samuel L Jackson is Glass (as in brittle bones like glass). The girl is used as a Plot Point for James McAvoy In both Split and Glass.
I hope this helps some with understanding the Trilogy and where and who the characters are in relation to the different movies.

Extremely slow paced and boring. I was excited to see this movie but it really fell short of my expectations. They set it up for another part but I've lost interest in this franchise.

Pay no attention to the reviews that say it was boring. This movie was too much for them to handle. Glass is very good - not perfect - but very good. It is richly layered and creepy with several surprises - which is is what we are expecting from an MNS movie. It successfully concludes the trilogy but leaves the door open a crack for more.

Elijah Price: [narrating] There are unknown forces that don't want us to realize what we are truly capable of. They don't want us to know the things we suspect are extraordinary about ourselves are real. I believe that if everyone sees what just a few people become when they wholly embrace their gifts, others will awaken. Belief in oneself is contagious. We give each other permission to be superheroes. We will never awaken otherwise. Whoever these people are who don't want us to know the truth, today, they lose.

Many quotes in IMDb already, none particularly memorable:
