Glass ★★★

The last 45 minutes or so of this could have been fleshed out and lengthened and you'd have a shot at the emotionally cathartic, narratively surprising, and still amusingly pulpy trilogy wrap-up that Shyamalan is perfectly capable of delivering. Unfortunately he's sort of got to retell UNBREAKABLE and SPLIT a little bit first, and so boy does this drag -- raising and answering yet again questions we've spent two whole movies now dealing with -- before you get to a terrific centerpiece with the four main characters all in a room together that really ought to be the very first scene of this thing. Still, it's as gorgeous as anything Night's ever done, full of idiosyncratic angles, lush and obviously symbolic color palettes, and his patented cloying portent...it's his movie through and through for whatever that's worth.
