Samuel L. Jackson's Elijah Price, or Mr. Glass as he prefers to be called, was by far the most compelling part of M. Night Shyamalan's slow-burn comic book send-up "Unbreakable". A brilliant, tortured manipulator and superhero enthusiast suffering from osteogenesis imperfecta (i.e. brittle bone disease), Glass is that kind of charismatic supervillain that you can't get enough of.Nineteen years is certainly a long time to wait for more Mr. Glass.Even after naming this long-gestating film after Jackson's character, Shyamalan decides to withhold him from the audience even longer.He makes Mr. Glass a highly sedated vegetable who gets to do little more thank blink and intensely stare at the camera for what feels like more than half of the movie.Mr. Glass does emerge from his vegetative state, eventually, and kicks the movie into gear as only Jackson can do."Glass" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
