I had thought this would be so much better then it is. The story could have really been good, instead of just OK. Great actors, but the story fell a little to short.

It looks like this is the sort of movie that you will either love or hate. If it doesn't click with you, it will probably feel bizarre, confusing, and slow. If it DOES click with you (as it did with me), you are likely to be blown away. I have considerable experience with a friend's D.I.D, and the portrayal of the condition in this movie (as well as in "Split") is pretty spot on, with the obvious exception of the Beast persona having actual superpowers. It was quite satisfying to see the Split characters integrated into the world of Unbreakable, it was VERY gratifying to see the girl from Split living free of her hideous Uncle (why couldn't the Beast have eaten THAT scumbag?), and the twist when you realize the details of the greater struggle was classic Shyamalan (in a good way).

Back to my theory on “Directed, Produced, Written by…..”. In this case it’s M. Night Shyamalan. I don’t think it has worked to be so enmeshed in a work. This film represents, to me, keeping Bruce Willis and Samuel Jackson employed and giving James McAvoy another avenue to do his many personalities. I think M. Night Shyamalan is riding on his name than his talent. The film was disjointed? Jumbled? Stupid? And Uninteresting. Except for Sarah Paulson and her incredible BIG eyebrows that provided some humor for me.

You didn't need to be a devotee of comic books to like M Knight Shyamalan's 2000 movie, Unbreakable. Didn't need to like superheroes to like Split, (2016). But it sure helps you like this sequel-and-crossover movie, Glass. That fact is a drawback, here. Perhaps this movie's only one.

It probably didn't take much convincing from the director-producer to get most of the cast together--they WERE together, in various ways, for the first two movies. Of the three, I suggest Glass is the least memorable, the risk of "reprising" roles already memorable and largely familiar.

Stand-out performance, as before, by James McAvoy, for his ability to portray any number of characters.

Too much, "In the comic books, the hero always..." and, "The comic books lied, because..." to make this movie a must-see for most film fans. I like comic books, too...but not THAT much. I really love movies. This one? Not THAT much.

Glass was a pretty terrible, boring show. I barely understood what was happening the whole show. Even though the powers in the show was cool, the psychologist in the show was an idiot introducing the villains to each other. This show didn’t hold my interest as none of the cheaters were memorable. The acting was ok. The plot line was confusing and dumb. Not worth watching

As intended, MSham* succeeded in making a different type of hero movie. Clever to bring characters from older independent movies into this combined story. Ooo, a completely solar powered high rise building ...

"Overall, I enjoyed Glass for the most part. I thought the acting was great with James McAvoy as the standout because his role is so complicated, dynamic and interesting that he really steals the show when he’s on screen, which is great because I love him. Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis are also great to see on screen."

I enjoyed this movie until it got into the mental asylum and then it's just boring and dull until the "climax" fight which is routine and predictable. It's a movie you root for to be better but isn't. A real disappointment.

Good story but not M. Night Shyamalan's best work

M Night failed again. If you remember Sixth Sense movie, you shouldn't watch this. You will be definitely disappointed and think to yourself it's a waste of your precious time.

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:
