Unbreakable Review

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 10.02.01 PM
Unbreakable is the most underrated and subtle superhero movie of all time. Its actually so subtle, some people don’t even consider it a superhero, which I’ve always found quite funny. Shyamalan’s follow up to The Sixth Sense is a very quiet, yet genius film. A very serious film with that tells a rather inspirational tale, and even though the fact that it decided to use some really misplaced text to end the film bothered me, its still genius. The first thing that struck me was how beautiful this film is, how it uses specific colors for the titular characters and how brilliantly long shots are used throughout the film. Then, the direction in this film is very eloquently performed, Shyamalan really manages to get some great performances out of everyone and transform a story that could have been terribly silly into a work of art. This film’s pacing is great as it slowly moves along towards its sort-of unexpected ending. Yes, there’s a twist, what did you expect from Shyamalan. Anyways, Unbreakable is a masterfully crafted film for the most part, I had some trouble with the ending and some other sections, but in the end, Unbreakable get a 76 out of 100.
