"Unbreakable" by Yojimbo

An obsessive comic book store owner is convinced that the sole survivor of a train wreck has special powers meant for a greater purpose. M. Night Shyamalan has long since exasperated me with his endless insistence on relying on rubbish plot twists to hang his entire films upon, but Unbreakable like The Sixth Sense before it, reminded me just why he was such an exciting prospect at the time. It has an intriguing concept exploring the idea that super powers may in fact be real, making for a low key but cerebral super hero film that is still quite unusual to this day. It has his keen eye for attractive visuals and subtle, nicely judged direction which aided by some fine performances makes for an intelligent and rather unique film. Unfortunately at the end, MNS's penchant for the plot twist o...

Unbreakable review

A story of a frail comic book art gallery owner Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) and invincible yet lost security guard named David Dunn (Bruce Willis). The 2 men met at Elijah’s gallery when David saw a calling card left in his car. Dunn brings his son Joseph (Spencer Treat Clark) to the gallery and is influenced by the theories of Elijah. Born with Type I osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare disease in which bones break easily, Elijah is treated by David’s wife Audrey, whose marriage is deteriorating. In certain cases, David has survived a car crash and train wreck unscathed. He tests his strength by lifting more than 300 pounds with Joseph’s assistance; he was able to detect a person carrying a gun and is able to detect evil doers by a bump or through touch. After Elijah’s suggestion ...

A PERFECT FILM THAT DELIVERS THE GOODS.

I must say im a huge fan of M.Night Shyamalan,no matter what people say about him.he has proven to me that not only does he know hoiw to creat good films,but creat them in ways that intruige you in many ways.now this film may not be his best,but it's certinaly not one of his bad ones.Bruce Willis and Samuael L.Jackson are perfect together in this film.the drama and mystery in this film unfolds like cubic,when you finally finish the cubic,your exited and happy.well that's how I felt with this film.by the time this film ended,I was exited that I saw it and happy by the time that it ended.M.Night may not be no "Wes Craven", "Stephen King" or "Stanley Kubrick" when it comes down to terror or scares of levels like them.but M.Night delivers the goods.he knows emotions,he knows how to break down...

The Glass Man Knows

Shyamalan's analysis of the archetypes in comics is spot on. For those of you who dig supers movies, try taking Samuel L's reading on heroes and villians and applying it to the recent Marvel Wave.

Although some of his movies lose the plot, Shyamalan undeniably has a master's eye and sense of mood. Unlike Spider-man or Hulk, he avoids the primary colors associated with comics and goes with selective moments of color enhancement -- a vision that is slightly more crisp, more alert, as though seen through a flash of adrenaline.

Bruce Willis is the strongest I've ever seen him -- something he accomplishes through silence and presence, rather than through his smart-aleky die-hard persona. He also manages to be vulnerable at the same time -- a quality Shyamalan seems to bring out ...

Review - Unbreakable (2000)

Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) spent his entire life studying comic books. When he found out about a man who might have the abilities of the people in the comics, he decides to start studying him in “Unbreakable.”

Bruce Willis (as David Dunn) is back in director M. Night Shyamalan’s second feature film, this time as another love-estranged man dealing with supernatural forces. But it is in no way the same as “The Sixth Sense.” This time the mood is still solemn, but with a lighter feeling to it. While the color scheme of “The Sixth Sense” was sort of a red tint, “Unbreakable” uses a bluer look, contrasting the two greatly. I’m not really trying to compare the two, I just wanted to note this interesting style.

That’s one of the great things about this movie: style. I can’t name anot...
