Great concept never realized about whether comic books became real
Verified purchase
Unbreakable was a film by M. Night Shyamalan. It was based upon comic books which is what the opening talks about. It features Bruce Willis a David Dunn who turns out to have superpowers and Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price who is a supervillain. The title is a pun upon those two characters as Dunn proves unbreakable when he gets into a train crash while Price has a condition that makes his bones brittle and can break on anything. The movie explores what if comic books were real. Unfortunately the movie never really develops.

While I like the concept of Unbreakable I don’t like the pace. It lays out the story so slowly. It spends so much time just going over whether David has powers, what they are, and what his weaknesses are. On top of that, he doesn’t even really use them until the very end. If Shyamalan had sped things up and provided some payoffs earlier on this would have been so much better.

The ending is horrible as well as everything just abruptly concludes with no big showdown or anything.

What could have been great therefore, proves very disappointing instead.

So Slooowwww

Ok I admit I have NEVER seen this film when it came out and Ive Seen Split and was a background extra in Philly in the new Glass movie but I really thought Unbreakable was so slow and boring. Yeah I get the ending blah blah. But It has nothing on Sixth Sense. All the shots from far away and through stuff is so College movie filming. I get it was 18 years ago but still. Im so glad M Night now has more money to make better movies.

Import version of Unbreakable is playable in any Region, ignore what Amazon says...
Verified purchase
I just got the UK edition of Unbreakable on here for $10.00 and it plays perfectly in North America. If you look at the photo of the back cover it says 'A, B, C' Region Code which is shy I ordered it despite Amazon saying it was B only.
It was put out by Beuna Vista both in the U.S. and UK markets and Disney products are almost always Region Free coded.
I picked up Split for $6.99 as well on Amazon which is a Universal release - wanted to have both of these finally on Blu
Before Go as came out!
Love all 3 films, a perfect Trilogy in my opinion just a bit more realistic than Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy cause these guys don't wear costumes but both are written and shot with a very naturalistic/realistic tone which I love.

I think people who hated Glass went in with expectations. All 3 are superb films but the Fanboys forgot that Unbreakable and Split were the opposite of what you expect a Superhero/Supervillain Film to be, and so was Glass.

Anyway, order either release of Unbreakable, either U.S. or UK because they both play anywhere
And the video quality is very very good. Split looks fantastic too...

M. Night Shyamalan pulled one off
Verified purchase
Always been a fave. While I'm not a super fan of M. Night Shyamalan, he has definitely done some good film work (like I said, not all of it though). This happens to be one of my fave's by him. I've yet to see "Split", a good friend told me that they both would make a good pairing. So I watched this with my teenage son last weekend, he had a blast...and we're going to watch "Split" when he's here again this weekend.

So that might be another review!

An original look at a superhero movie
Verified purchase
I really enjoy this movie every time I see it. Its one of those movies you can watch every now and then and pick up a thing or two on every viewing. Engaging plot, characters with depth, a fun turn, and an interesting look at the birth of a hero and the creation of a villain. Samuel L Jackson gives a performance that keeps you glued to the screen. If you enjoyed "Split" than you will love this. If you havent seen "Split", watch this now and then watch "Split".

Watched so that I could understand the movie "Glass"
Verified purchase
I wanted to see the movie Glass, but a friend insisted that I watch the prequels so that I had a better understanding once I went to see it. This was not the sort of genre I usually watch (I'm a "LOTR-Harry Potter-cozy murder mystery-high fantasy- anything British and special effects" kind of girl) so I gave it a try at her recommendation. It was a little slow to begin with, but then after about 40 minutes, my interest was piqued. The acting was very good--I( mean, Bruce and Samuel L.--come on. It doesn't get any better) but I still didn't understand Mr. Glass' character by the movie's end. I believe there could have been a better attempt at character development. the BEST moment of the film was the touching scene at the end between Bruce Willis and his son at the table---VERY touching. If you like action, dark or anti-hero films (that are a bit slow to get going) this is for you.

I loved this movie

Watch this movie, then watch SPLIT. They are connected. Both are stellar movies, and I give both a 10/10. Wait until Mr.Glass comes out. It is the third of this trilogy.

Slow and ridiculous
Verified purchase
I love Bruce Willis. This movie however was really slow in unveiling any purpose. A mother with a life long sadness at her sons disability. A broken man searching for his purpose. A failing marriage and a husband with a wondering eye. A son who is scared to lose his dad. This is a dark movie and at times senseless one. The ending is puke worthy. I do not recommend. Some may love it and many tried to encourage people to watch another dark movie called split. Ok. You all go ahead and download dark movies. I'll stay in the light. I gave this movie my time and in many ways it was well made. Just the story I have a problem with. Interesting concept. I can appreciate that. Just not my favorite.
