REAL VILLAINS ARE AMONG US. REAL HEROES ARE WITHIN US.
Three men with extraordinary powers (Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Bruce Willis) find themselves locked up in a mental institution where a doctor (Sarah Paulson) intends to prove that it’s all in their minds. A combined sequel to the director’s Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2017) that initially had his fans excited. Unfortunately, all this talky thriller achieves is repeating more or less the same themes and thoughts from Unbreakable. There’s a twist, but boy have we been here before.
