Glass: read the responses to the Cineworld Unlimited screening

M. Night Shyamalan's Glass, a sequel to his films Unbreakable and Split, screened in advance last night for Cineworld Unlimited members.

Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson reprise their Unbreakable roles as invulnerable hero David Dunn and evil mastermind Elijah Price, while James McAvoy returns as Split's multiple-personality psychopath Kevin.

The end result forges surprising connections between three films that were initially thought to be unconnected. It's a typically twisty Shyamalan premise, so what did Unlimited audiences make of it?

We'll start with this from Mal Jutley who praises the three central performances.

Emma@TheMovies says McAvoy's complex portrayal of the troubled Kevin steals the show.

Given Shyamalan's penchant for last-minute revelations, the ending (which, of course, we're not giving away) has generated a lot of reactions. Bill Curzon says he loved the denouement.

Mark Billing says Glass resolves the 'Eastrail 177 trilogy' (as it's now known) perfectly.

And Stephan Clark praises McAvoy's memorable performance while hoping for a brand new trilogy in future.

On the other hand, the nature of the storytelling proved problematic with some viewers. Ian GT says that for him, Shyamalan's signature unhurried tone hampered the film's impact.

The resolution also yielded mixed results for Clare who wasn't convinced of the bridging device between Glass, Unbreakable and Split.

Is this even the end of the 'Eastrail 177 trilogy' though? Katie Samuel thinks otherwise...

Anyone else who attended last night's screening can tweet their responses @Cineworld and using #CineworldUnlimited.
