I’m a big fan of the comic-book/superhero/villain genre, but this one nearly passed me by – and I’m not sure why! 🤔
Slightly more embarrassing though is that it’s related to two previous movies – Unbreakable from 2000 and Split in 2016. I’m pretty sure I saw the former, but I’ll need to fix a date to see Split with Jo and Janet as I definitely haven’t seen that one! 😲
So, I’m going in blind with this latest instalment!
And actually, even without the benefit of the previous movies, it turned out to be a really good film! James McAvoy deserves an Award for how seamlessly he slipped from one character to another, whilst ‘Mr Glass’ was a bit of an unknown until two-thirds of the way through – then he really dominated the movie!
The plot was intelligent, with lots of twists and turns along the way. The final 15 minutes was an absolute ‘show-stopper’ in so many ways (so I won’t reveal the details here).
A bit of scope for another follow-up movie too, but not with the characters you’d expect! 😀
If you like a deeper storyline compared with the normal superhero movies, put it on your list!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
