In Glass, heroic superhuman vigilante David Dunn (Bruce Willis) finds himself trapped in a psychiatric hospital with his archenemy Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), as well as a superhuman struggling with dissociative identity disorder (James McAvoy).

Glass received mixed reviews upon its release, with some taking issue with the way Shyamalan wrapped up certain characters' storylines.

That said, the movie does boast a handful of terrific performances and deserves credit for attempting to do something different with the superhero genre.
