If you braved the elements this past January to go see M. Night Shyamalan's latest suicidal career swan dive Glass, then you know that the infamous writer/director has nothing left up his sleeve. Glass was a film that punished anyone in the audience that actually had the gaul to like Unbreakable and Split, teasing them with a tantalizing set-up that brought all three of the series' main characters together, and then squandering virtually every ounce of potential that premise provided.
Now, this is not to say the film is without merit, as the newest Honest Trailer from the good folks over at Screen Junkies is also willing to point out, it's just that the film's "grand plan" so to speak wouldn't work in the real world. The viral campaign at the end of the film, meant to be a triumphant moment, would be greeted with everything ranging from a healthy skepticism to outright dismissal. As much as that ending is supposed to make us think that Mr. Glass actually won in the end, the film and its creator ultimately have too much faith in humanity, particularly in the internet age.
The bit about PCP was pretty great though, wasn't it? Anyways, check out Glass on DVD, Blu-ray, or Digital HD, or don't. Honestly, if you liked Unbreakable and Split and still haven't seen Glass, I would say you're good.
