Throughout, the film refers to comic-book imagery--with Dunn's security guard slicker coming to look like a cape, and Price's gallery taking on elements of a Batcave-like lair--while the lectures on artwork and symbolism feed back into the plot. The last act offers a terrific suspense-thriller scene, which (like the similar family-saving at the end of The Sixth Sense) is a self-contained sub-plot that slingshots a twist ending that may have been obvious all along. Some viewers might find the stately solemnity with which Shyamalan approaches a subject usually treated with colourful silliness offputting, but Unbreakable wins points for not playing safe and proves that both Willis and Jackson, too often cast in lazy blockbusters, have the acting chops to enter the heart of darkness. --Kim Newman

i rented this movie becuase i was too broke when it was at the cinema, i was interested in the story-a little complex i thought something about some guy who survives a train crash and doesn't even have a scratch on him... maybe it'll be like a modern day superman...
i wasn't expecting what i got
from the start i knew i wasn't watching some big blockbuster action superhero movie from the cries of the baby born in the first scene... the camera action-the cinematography and that chilling soundtrack... this movie blew me away, just the concept of introducing the idea of super-human power to this guy whos life was not what you'd expect to be superhero, his wife is sleeping in a seperate bed, he works a menial job (no newspaper side job here!) making him almost like a comic book character is outstanding, it could have been a messy job but the director makes it poetry.
slow paced at times but for good reason, you not only get to know this ordinary guy struggle to understand what he might be but you also see an outstanding performace by Mr Jackson who plays a man who breaks easily-moulding the unwilling Mr Willis trying to help him understand his importance...
i swear i never get bored watching this piece of art
the soundtrack will soon be in my cd collection
and i will never look at comic books quite the same
please watch it
