Getting to know just one new inmate in prison might be enough, but 23 of them?
In this newly released clip from Glass, the villainous Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), aka Mr. Glass for the disorder that makes his bones extremely prone to breaking, encounters more fellow prisoners than he sees while meeting at least some of Kevin Wendell Crumb’s 24 personalities. No wonder they call him The Horde.
Glass is the final installment in M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable trilogy, with real-life superhero David Dunn (Bruce Willis) of Unbreakable confronting terrorist Price again, while being introduced to Crumb (James McAvoy) from Split, whose dissociative identity disorder has spawned multiple personalities. Meanwhile, a doubtful psychiatrist (Sarah Paulson) tries to convince the three that none of them have any extraordinary abilities.
Price first gets introduced to a persona who swears all the other personas that reside in Crumb’s mind are decent people. He obviously hasn’t met Dennis, who takes over and suddenly starts preaching about how The Beast is the only thing that is pure in this world.
The last member of the Horde to introduce themselves to Price is eternal 9-year-old Hedwig, who has no idea what Type I osteogenesis imperfecta is at all, and wonders out loud whether he can break Price’s bones with just a tap. Awkward.
There is something really, really creepy about how Price tells Hedwig he can see the world for what it really is because he will never grow up. It’s the kind of unsettling feeling when you can see right through someone’s façade—kind of like David Dunn did when his ESP revealed what Price really was in Unbreakable.
Early reviews for Glass have been mixed so far. Critics aren’t exactly bashing it, but many aren’t seeing the X factor they did in Unbreakable and Split. Some thought the execution was the issue. Others thought the story just shattered into a million pieces.
At least Price escapes coming face to face with the Beast … for now.
