Glass — The Dangers of Containment | Anatomy Of A Failure



M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass is out on blu-ray and digital and, sadly, does fail to live up to the story it was meant to conclude. The main reason for this seems to be the fact that in an effort to film the movie for cheap, Shyamalan based it on the element of containment and set it mostly in one location. In today’s episode of Anatomy of a Failure, let’s take a closer look at Glass to determine what are the pitfalls of contained movies and how to avoid them.

As a sequel to Unbreakable, Glass really doesn’t live up to expectations. And what’s even bigger of a bummer, this seems to be the end for the Unbreakable and Split universe. Well, at least we have another universe going on with the MCU and Avengers Endgame. DC seems to be stepping things up too with the Joker movie and Shazam too. Still… bummer.

    I think a Arkhamesk premise where Glass and the Horde take over the environment, and Dunn has to stop him would of been a far superior movie, i mean the place is fitted with cameras and electronic doors, David Dunn owns a Security DIY shop, what a perfect set-up.

  • Vd3r

    why u focusing on david dunhm .. its called "glass" its about what glass wants to achieve in the end. and he did it.
    i am not saying movie is excellent but lot of the slow scenes are necessary in this kinda movie but ending was little unsatisfactory for most of us who had hopes for this movie. its an average movie maybe 6.5/10 or even 7

  • BASIL!!!!! Βασίλειος

    I walked out of the theater feeling like I got punched in the stomach and kicked in the balls, twice.

    Seriously, the movie was pretty darn bad, but the unforgivable moment was to kill the main hero, and in such a lame-o fashion, before he even did anything worthy of his ability. This is what makes the movie unforgivable to me.

    As far as length, EASILY 30 mins could have been cut out of it with the story not suffering even a little bit. Also, the horde was completely played out in split, and we don't really want to see a movie that's 70% about him, again.

    If Shyamalan only had a limited budget, he could have easily gotten around that by saving all the budget for, let's say, the last 15 mins of the movie saved for the action scenes. When I read the synopsis of the movie, I thought it was going to be a detective story, with Dunn trying to track The Horde/Beast, and missing him every time (but saving the people he captures), until the big show down at the end.

    Shyamalan could have had his scene where Dunn "dies" (or appears to), but is saved either by: His son, or: The Horde. It could have been a moment of redemption for The Horde actually, if the story had been written well.

    The girl (I forget her name) was a completely wasted character. The movie Split ended with her in conflict about her uncle and his sexual abuse, and whether she would stand up against him. In Glass, oh! It was solved with a throwaway line: She turned him in to the cops. Wow that was easy.

    Shyamalan = Hack. I will never ever watch a single movie this hack will ever make again. What pisses me off is that this movie ruined Unbreakable for me also.

    Here’s a loose thread that really bugs me: if the cameras recorded everything outside the hospital, and the recordings were shared online, then the public saw the cop drown David Dunn in the puddle, right in front of the doctor. I don’t care how good the cult is, that’s something they can’t explain.

    I really enjoy your videos. Can you cover Captain Marvel? It's a failure in my eyes, just like Black Panther. People only love it for political reasons, some dumb logic like "if you hate it, you're racist/sexist". It was a really boring movie, and it's a shame since she is going to play a major role in Endgame.

    people seem to forget the context of why david went out the way he did.

    he fought the beast on a water tank, he barely made it out after an intense struggle, and he was still with water in his lungs, he was still trying to get back into his senses, and just like what the organization did with the Beast, they took the opportunity of a severely weak David an finished drowning him.

    (also, David isn’t supper strong, i think that image/idea seems to make people Believed he could have easily overpowered the guard, 1# he would be panicking out of fear of drowning 2# he is simply unbreakable, all his super strength feats come from him using regular strength, but gradually out lasting whatever object it is.)

    so he can lift as many lb. as he wants and break as many metal doors because his muscles and bones wont break no matter how much strain he puts in it, but as its visible, he struggles to really sum up the strength,

    he could have lifted up from that mans hand, no problem, even the puddle too, but it was more so a combination of already being weak/low on oxygen (from the water in lungs), and simply not having the time and air to gradually over come the force of the guard.

    Dunn's death = puke
    Still the good movie of this trilogy was Split. One fucking awesome movie in acting and who cares the story. Unbreakable was incredibly boring and underwhelming in my opinion, the worst of the three.

  • Kody Tiffany

    I only wanted what the name suggested… instead theres that female and crazy man, that you made look like the focus… In unbreakable Mr Glass is built up as a good antagonist; so I was hoping this would be about him escaping custody and Dun chasing him down & having to go through other escapees to reach him; only to fail and need movie 3 for the final confrontation…
    I still want to watch but man it sounds like he was failing on purpose with this film.

    There's a number of problems in Glass, containment being one, but also inconsistency, Rian Johnson's subverting expectations disease and, the worst of all, an awful choice of time and evolution of the story from the two previous films

    – You've dealt already with the containment problems. Funny enough, Split was another pretty contained movie, but the story evolved well and you could forget that everything was happening in just one place
    – Inconsistency. Major issue here. The whole premise once they get to the hospital is plain silly. What's the point? I mean, yes, we find out about the secret organization behind, never mentioned before like ever, and seen only in the last quarter of the movie, ok, but what for? They really thought they could convince the trio that they didn't have powers? We have to buy that? And even if we buy it, it's so poorly depicted, with so many plot holes. How does Mr Glass leave the room the first time? You have a hundred cameras and don't think about checking a time stamp to see if the recording has been tampered with? Glass is a Mastermind, that's "dealing with the villain 101". Was that the plan all along? Why?
    – The subverting expectations thing. Shyamalan is the master of foreshadowing, but he doesn't cheat. His twists, the good ones, are so good because he's telling you exactly what will happen since the very beginning. From the first second I heard a tv in the background talking about the Osaka Tower, I expected that to be the grand finale scenario. Here, he takes something said by the doctor in the second half of the boring hospital section. That's cheating, big time. But if you do it, at least do it well
    – Last but not least, time. If I remember well, Glass is set around two weeks after the events of Split. Really? Again, why? Why don't let the characters evolve at least those two years between Split and Glass? Evolve and, of course, gain power. Be, and show it, really powerful. The fight in the hospital's lot it's like seeing two drunks on steroids, no real sense of watching two mighty beings beating the shit out of each other. Plus, with some other characters just standing there

    This video just made me realise even more of its mastery. Individual's potential is being CONTAINED by society and our own minds tricking us into believing we are not worthy or strong using exaggerated and false logic (the exposition you call out as being a negative aspect of the film, put yourself in the characters shoes. Even when all 3 are sat down and she is trying to convince them they aren't special, where often are the camera placements? POV shots – WE know she's lying (Unbreakable & Split obviously prove that as you say), the twist isn't for us, it's for them! How will THEY react when they find out they really are strong). The physical containment of these characters within a MENTAL hospital is clearly a metaphor, I should have realised.

    In 50 years, this trilogy will generally be considered a masterpiece and most of you are too slow to see it.

    I have so far liked and kinda agreed with your videos but I must disagree on this one. I liked glass and I don't think M. Night Shyamalan did a bad thing or was trying to tell a traditional story. His choice to show moral, immoral and amoral with each of the characters and to subvert the narrative by making the movie not be about the horde vs unbreakable but about a shadow group suppressing the existence of these extraordinary people was a really good one. Instead of a super hero/villain smash up he kinda showed a movie about the people side of this extraordinary people and their fight to prove themselves and that they exist. The addition of the side characters made the hero/villains more real and showed us that they can suffer and change.

    (Gru plan meme format)

    Step 1:First we set up great characters with a great plot and leave it unconcluded for 19 years.

    Step 2: Twist, Split was actually a spin off of unbreakable the entire time. So now lets have them meet and conclude the trilogy.

    Step 3: Now they all die.

    "Now they all die?"

    Just watched it yesterday. Man… this movie is awesome! I heard a lot of people saying bad things about it and I was afraid of don't like. But it's damn good! Who doesn't like probably did not catch the ideia and the meaning. Dunn's death was the lowest point but it ends so well the trilogy.

    Heroes/special people with habilities exist and they need to show themselves. Period. I got amazed from the begining to the end. All the three movies were great.

    For those who did not catch, just accept this: IT'S NOT A MARVEL (MCU) MOVIE OR ANY KIND OF GENERIC HERO MOVIE.

    I think that both the Unbreakable trilogy and the Cloverfield trilogy perfectly parallel each other. Both had first entries that laid dormant until they received a secret follow up that was different to what fans expected, only to then receive a third film two years later that not only was a disappointment on it's own, but also felt like an F you to the fans.

    I don't see it as a failure at all. Like most cult classics, you have a specific group of demographic whom these films appeal to. These are the same people whom were the primary inspiration for the film.
    Many of us were teenagers when Unbreakable was released in 2000 (I was 18 y/o, myself) and while hearing about the potential of a Sequel, titled "Glass", for several years, time would ultimately drag on, as does the development of many cult sequels.
    I had no idea that Split was even a tie-in until I saw it for the first time, after being released to DVD. However, there was no mistaking it, when the Unbreakable Theme kicked in and Bruce Willis entered the shot.
    Immediately afterward, I began to read about the momentum behind "Glass", which probably owed a lot of credit to the success of "Split".
    Any cult fan knows that a sequel very rarely lives up to the potential of the original film. As a result, this film actually exceeded my initial expectations.
    In the end, I can honestly say that, any long time fan of Unbreakable should be satisfied w/ the finale, while I can completely understand why the casual movie-goer or someone who may have first seen Unbreakable recently (perhaps after seeing Split) might have seen it as a failure. Many people may have been expecting something different, being that it is technically a superhero film. However, it plays out closer to that of a drama, than an action film.
    I'm not attempting to say that your analysis isn't valid, as there are many others who likely share your thoughts, just as there are likely many who share mine. I'm just speaking from the perspective of a long-time cult fan.
