Trickster writer-director M Night Shyamalan returns with the third in the tonally goofy Eastrail 177 trilogy, following 2000’s Unbreakable and 2017’s Split. The first focused on Bruce Willis’s invincible security guard, the second on a serial killer with 24 split personalities (James McAvoy). This self-proclaimed origin story purports to centre on Samuel L Jackson’s brittle-boned super-villain Mr Glass, though it takes more than half the movie for him to actually do anything. Sarah Paulson’s evil scientist, Dr Staple, captures Glass as well as the trilogy’s previous protagonists, taking them to a sanitarium where she has three days to convince them they don’t have superpowers. The metaphors are messy (trauma makes people extraordinary?) and the pacing’s off, but it’s fun to see the individual films’ universes crossing over.
