STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) M. Night Shyamalan saga of believers and non-believers. The comic-book aficionado among the audiences wants Mr. Glass to be correct like a believer waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ to be true.
2) James McAvoy did most of the leg-work in this movie. Just like in the prequel, his transformation from one personality to the other was remarkable

 

 
CONS –
1) The aura of the entire trilogy was diminished by some “deep-state” kind of organization trying to discourage and suppress any super-hero activities.
2) Less screen-time for David Dunn.
3) M. Night Shyamalan became too cautious to exhibit the super-power showdown of The Overseer and The Beast. While this strategy worked in Unbreakable (2000), this time, however, audiences were waiting for a grand boss fight. This movie also lacks the grand climactic plot-twist which is now a trademark to any Shyamalan movie.

 

QUOTE –
Mrs. Price: Didn’t you tell me there was a showdown at the end of a limited edition? How come you didn’t know how it was gonna end?
Mr. Glass: Oh, Mama. This is not a limited edition. This was an origin story the whole time.
