The screenplay for Unbreakable is like the opposite of a Michael Crichton novel. You know those Crichton novels like Sphere and Congo where the author begins with a great setup and then digs himself into a literary hole where nothing short of a miraculous climax can save the book.

Unbreakable, on the other hand, takes it's time setting up its premise and then delivers with what has to be the best ending of its kind since 1978's Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Lots of comparisons can be made between M. Night Shyamalan's previous film The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. Both are arguably better the second time you see it. You'll want to know if the director ever "cheated" on the conclusion. You'll also want to check for little clues that you might have missed.

Unbreakable is not a perfect picture but it is an imaginative one. It's also technically solid and delivers good performances from Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Robin Wright and Spencer Treat Clark (who has the unfortunate task of playing a boy in a film by the same maker who directed a similarly aged Haley Joel Osment).

A film critic once said that a good action picture has three good scenes and no bad ones. Unbreakable has more than three good scenes, no bad ones, and a hell of an ending.

Hammered, that is what I am right now. however I will tr to write a review of the movie UNBREAKABLE. Could I really recall what the fuck I watched, or was what I observed a visual deception of reality. I'm a normal fucking human, I have a super power....It's follow a fucking janitorial worker home only to surprise the audience that he's a fucked up serial killer. Excuse me, but I think I could come up with a more creative fucking bad guy, who's only fucking reason for being in this movie is a faint plot support. Ok.ok.ok.ok, They Fuck you in the drive through.........FUCK THIS MOVIE WAS LAME. Yes I passed over the huge dramatic plot development of all characters. LAME! If I watch a two hour flick, I want t feel more than the need to take a nap. I could go off on a comic book tangent, but comic books have fucking plots that are entertaining. This movie just dragged a fucking dead duck around the block that kept squeaking and squeaking. FOUR LETTERS ....L...A....M...E....
I see dead people, please, people that were entertained by this shaite.
