Strength and Weakness

Unbreakable gives us another take on the superhero story. Director M. Night Shyamalan chose to go with a slower more intimate take. This was the director’s first movie after the critically acclaimed movie The Sixth Sense. Which means it’s one of the good ones. Unbreakable is about an ordinary man who discovers he has super strength, invincibility, and extrasensory perception. While the movie has many of M. Night’s usual cliches (including a twist ending). Unbreakable truly benefits from Samuel L. Jackson’s performance as Elijah Price/ Mr. Glass. Jackson plays the role both quiet and nuanced. A departure from his usual loud profane persona. It’s one of the most unique superhero movies ever made.
