like the sixth sense there is a major league surprise ending in unbreakable and to reveal it would be to ruin one of the year's best movie. So if your friends start talking about it, run in the other direction with your finger in your ears.
You will know immediately if M. Night Shyamalan's latest effort will work for you; right away the screen is filled with some information about our world, and how you feel about that information will tell you whether or not you will accept the film's world view. Supposedly the first act of a trilogy, draped in a morose mood and photographed in dark earth shades, ''Unbreakable'' takes a concept seemingly lacking any credibility, and with ardent veracity propounds, in the words of character Elijah Price (portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson) 'a fantastic possibility.' ''Unbreakable'' is not ''The Sixth Sense-Part II.'' It is it's own, with it's own line of thought. Mostly concerning itself with the repercussions of this 'possibilitiy's' revelation. There is Bruce Willis' character David Dunn's initial denial and eventual acceptance of his destiny, his son's (played by Spencer Treat Clark) total acceptance and how it justifies his adoration of his father, his wife's (played by Robin Wright-Penn) obliviousness and need for a regular life, and Elijah Price's need for a confirmation of his purpose in life. Writer/Director Shyamalan gives all this an emotional weight by not going the obvious route. The set-pieces are subtle, even the disaster that sets everything in motion takes place off-screen. Willis isn't reduced to shallow one-liners. In fact, he is almost totally humourless, wearing a frown almost totally throughout the film. Amazing is Clark as the devoted son who clutches to his father as the turmoil of life swirls around him and in the end is rewarded for his faith. The climatic rescue scene, where Dunn uses his 'abilities' for the first time, is alternately exhilarating and flat-out creepy. Add an almost biblical sounding score by James Newton Howard and you get a film that slowly builds a world that you wish was. The two-disc DVD set is well worth it if you enjoyed the film, with slick packaging and nice extras like deleted scences and documentaries on the second disc.
I loved the ending. It was amazing. Completely unexpected and unacceptable- but makes perfect sense.The film should win awards just for that.Long-winded but beautifully shot. Worth watching even if it totally blew cause the ending was exquisite.
I liked this movie. It was totally not what I expected, but I really like it anyway. Especially the twist ending. :) Very good. I would recommend it for people with slightly strange tastes.
To be brief, if you are a long-time comic book reader/fan, then this movie is an absolute must. This film is the first live-action comic book origin film that pulls it off flawlessly. While it covered all of the standard origin points, it did so with a complete respect for the viewer as an adult. One of my top ten films of all time... just amazing.
For some reason I avoided this movie when it first came out and repeatedly on television. I saw it last night, and I can only echo the reviews by ''A very misunderstood movie...'' and ''The Sublime From The Ridiculous'' I think ''pointless'' speaks for him/her self).
This film has too much in it for most to understand, but to the few of us who know about film (Cinematography, plot, character development, script writing, editing, and film history) this was a refreshing change from the same old thing. (A truly pointless movie, something that Arnold Schwarzenegger has done over the last couple years). If people are going to write that they don't like a film because ''it just was bad'' they shouldn't waist the reader¿s time. If you don't like it then critique it with well thought out reasons. The film Unbreakable was slow at the beginning (for a reason) it shows the emotional state of Bruce Willis¿s character. In the beginning he is depressed and at the end he is starting to feel purpose in his life.
This movie is a tough love but you need to give it a chance. You may need to see it more than once to really get this movie. Great acting and script put this movie over the top. The ending was kind of a let down for me only because I wanted more. See it, feel it and you just may love it.
The title threw me off at first as I expected some Die Hard-esque action movie. I loved the undertoning of the music and the subtle acting.This movie has real chemistry if you let yourself get below surface expectations.
This movie was interesting and unexpected. It has Bruce Willis from the Sixth Sense who instead of a doctor person plays a security guard who survives a train crash without a scrath on him but then discoveres something different about him later in the movie or somewhere after the crash. Samuel L. Jackson is creepy as Elijah who's obsessed with comics and believes that the security guard is some kind of 'super hero'. The ending gets good and is shocking and expected. The movie was alright.
This movie is not your typical 'action' story; but instead it's a character developing, thrilling, awesome movie! If you liked Signs you'll love this!
i have never seen such a great superhero movie sense batman and batman returns. but this movie is nothing like batman, nor spiderman, superman, or pretty much any man (rimshot). i have never in my intire life seen a super hero movie like this. this is a much more beautifully done film. this is not what you would call an "action movie". there is only one fight scene. this is alot more of a drama, so if you are expecting a regular super hero movie, you will be disappointed. this film, unlike sixth sense is not a horror movie, unless some are disturbed by some of the characters or the storyline. this film is about a man slowly figuring out that he is a hero. or is it all a coinscidince? shyamalan really sorta leaves us to figure it out. elijha played by samuel l. jackson is one of my favorite performances in a movie. he played the part so well. and who can forget bruce willis as david dunn? it was his best performances since the sixth sense, also a great film, escpecially if you enjoyed this. i am only twelve. but no, this is not a kiddie movie. i always like movies that my friends my age don't like so much. i guess i just have unusual taste. i am a huge tim burton, m. night shyamalan, and coen brother brothers fan. so you can see what type of movies i like. i like movies with an artistic touch. i myself have won several state art awards for best in show. i have mature taste for my age and i really liked this movie. great acting, wonderful storyline, and outstanding directing. if you know a good movie when you see it, you'll like this movie. and it has another surprise ending.
Suspense! Surprise! And the ending... magnifico! It is great, but you have to appreciate it and pay attention. This is not a zonk out I'm a zombie movie. Watch it, watch it, watch it!
this movie is my second fav by M. Knight the first being 6th Sense. i like the underlying comedy, action & suspense that's in it. the end just warrents a sequel. why doesn't M. Knight do sequels anyway? Samuel Jackson is an excellent villian & makes for a wonderful opposite. in a deranged way.
The only reason I gave this movie two stars was because the actors did a great job on this movie. Other than that, there really isn't a point to it. Don't want to give anything away, but the ending was just lame. The subway crash was pretty interesting and the afterthoughts were suspensful and kept you wondering but the ending was something and 8 year old might have thought up. The ending was atleast better than the Happening's which had an extremely out there scenario.
