The poor reviews of Glass made director M. Night Shyamalan cry. Glass, which starred Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Bruce Willis, was the third and final film of the Unbreakable trilogy. The 2000 film was followed up with a surprise sequel in 2017 called Split, which starred McAvoy as a man with 23 distinct personalities. Glass was the cumulation of these stories, tying together the stories of Elijah Price, Kevin Wendell Crumb, and David Dunn.
Glass may be Shyamalan’s most recent film, but he has been involved with filmmaking since the early ’90s. He first recieved critical praise for The Sixth Sense in 1999, before going on to make movies like Unbreakable, Signs, and The Village. Shyamalan’s praise didn’t last forever though, especially after he directed The Last Airbender and After Earth, both of which were critical and financial flops. The found-footage horror movie The Visit and Split seemed to help Shyamalan’s reputation for a while, but then Glass recieved some truly brutal reviews.
