100W: Unbreakable

Short reviews for clear and concise verdicts of a broad range of films…

Unbreakable (Dir. M. Night Shyamalan/2000)
A dark Superhero film rooted in reality, whereby X-ray vision is instinct and superhuman strength is unbreakable bones. A patient and tragic story as David Dunn (Willis) tries to find his place in the world following his lone survival from a train crash. We watch to see if Dunn is truly “Unbreakable” and meet Elijah Price (Jackson), who suffers from a breakable bone disorder. An urban world soaked in luxurious deep-blues and Milk-Tray purples, Unbreakable effortlessly convinces us that heroism exists in this modern world. Comic book heroes and villains have never been so gracefully depicted on the cinema screen.
Rating: 7/10
