The latest movie M. Night Shyamalana, Glass, is soon available in theaters, and before the publication, reviews began to appear online. The film receives a mixed reaction from the critics.
Michael Rougeau, GameSpot, said in his review that Glass has the elements that fans will enjoy, but in general the film focuses too much on "all the wrong things".
"Like most Shyamalan films, Glass is well targeted and recorded, and there are moments of brilliance and tension," wrote Rougeau. "But when the scroll is literal, the climax will not be so exciting as you believe it is impossible not to feel disappointed."
The glass combines heroes from previous Shyamalan, Unbreakable and Split movies. At the end of Split it was confirmed that it was set in the same universe as Unbreakable.

"The glass is not a movie that should be. It's the beginning of the hints before the film turns left and spends the rest of its existence with emphasis on all the wrong things. Like most Shyamalan films, the glass is well-oriented and ranked, and there are moments of brilliance and tension throughout the whole time But when the roll is literal that the peak will not actually be as exciting as you believed it is impossible not to feel disappointed.

M. Night Shyamalan is a talented artist, but like most of the Glass series, he seems to have several identities, good and bad, and you never know which one will appear. In the case of glass, this is the last one. When Unbreakable came out, it seemed truly revolutionary. In view of visual and intellectual sophistication in superhero films, Hollywood is now being created with the usual recording. Matt Singer [Full review]
"Is Glass the least satisfying chapter of often pleasing, conceptually interesting trilogy? Is it an attempt to launch a wider Shyamalaniverse, in which ordinary men and women across Philadelphia and its suburbs will discover their inspirational abilities? Most likely, the first is – John DeFore [Full review]
"It's nice to see Shyamalan back (to some extent) in shape, insofar as he got my basic spinner for yarn. But the glass occupies us without being chased by us, it's more busy than mixing or excitement." – Owen Gleiberman [Full review]
"If Unbreakable and Split are some of the most powerful works in Shyamalana filmmaking, Glass has somewhere between those and addresses that have turned off so many viewers, but it does not yet count Shyamalana. -What are the scenes of the POV between the shooting scenes that show the director who still pushing its craft to bring something new to its spectators.
