The Plot: David Dunn, a security guard, tracks down Kevin Crumb, a dangerous guy with 24 personalities who has kidnapped a group of teenager girls. But both are caught by the police and taken to a psychiatric hospital, where Elijah Price is also incarcerated. The three of them believe they have supernatural powers and Dr. Ellie Staple will try to change their minds.
The Movie: For his next supernatural opus, director and writer M. Night Shyamalan mixes the characters of his UNBREAKABLE and SPLIT. The result is a dramatic super-hero movie with elements of thriller and horror. It’s a good and interesting, but the two previous movies were better and more intense. Anyway, it has an original approach to the world of super-heroes and it’s very entertaining.
More than special effects and action scenes, the focus is on the characters and the cast is perfect. Repeating their previous characters, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark and, specially, James McAvoy give their best and it’s a true show of their talent abilities. McAvoy, with his multiple personalities, is even better here than he was in SPLIT; he is simply brilliant! New to the story is Dr. Ellis Staple, to whom Sarah Paulson gives an intense and kind of mysterious life.
If you enjoy great performances and a little bit of fantasy, this one is up your alley.
