Glass Blu Ray Review

Glass is the third movie in the M. Night Shyamalan comic book inspired trilogy.  What started with the cult hit Unbreakable follows the story of two gentlemen who believe they have super human abilities.  The second movie, Split, is not a direct sequel but a shared universe story of a young man that has multiple personalities including a personality known as the Beast.  Glass comes out today on all DVD formats and if you are a fan of the series or film then you won’t be disappointed with this pick-up.

This DVD is packed with all types of extra bonus content, with most of it tied directly to Shyamalan.  While there is an Alternate Opening Scene and quite a few deleted scenes, the bonus content that Shyamalan fans will enjoy are Connecting the Glass UniverseM. Night Shyamalan: Behind the Lens, and Night Vision.  These bonus scenes lets you understand the amount of detail Shyamalan took to create this movie and connect all three together.  While I am not the biggest Shyamalan fan the bonus content I did enjoy was A Conversation with James McAvoy and M. Night Shyamalan, it was interesting to hear both of their perspectives in making original content.

Overall if you are a fan of Shyamalan or enjoyed this movie this DVD will be a worthy addition to your collection.  While this DVD is loaded with bonus content if you weren’t a fan of Glass then the extras won’t change your mind.
