Great performances, moments and ideas. If it doesn't provide the tidy ending that made The Sixth Sense a talking-point, that might not be a bad thing.

What Unbreakable shows is Mr. Shyamalan's remarkable growth as a director.

Even if the ending doesn't entirely succeed, it doesn't cheat, and it comes at the end of an uncommonly absorbing movie.

Hollywood Reporter

An intriguing story executed with visual panache and fine acting performances.

The presence of pop culture refs via comics makes quite notable the absence of any humor or sense of fun, just as it makes its pretentions to deep meaning and self-importance all the more specious.

I could find a fault with it.

As a guy who grew up reading comics, someone who watches every superhero movie that comes out, and someone who has always loved the different stories and takes on good and evil, I have to say that this movie takes the cake and sets the bar for what an origin, let alone superhero movie should be.
