So that might be another review!
It was put out by Beuna Vista both in the U.S. and UK markets and Disney products are almost always Region Free coded.
I picked up Split for $6.99 as well on Amazon which is a Universal release - wanted to have both of these finally on Blu
Before Go as came out!
Love all 3 films, a perfect Trilogy in my opinion just a bit more realistic than Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy cause these guys don't wear costumes but both are written and shot with a very naturalistic/realistic tone which I love.
I think people who hated Glass went in with expectations. All 3 are superb films but the Fanboys forgot that Unbreakable and Split were the opposite of what you expect a Superhero/Supervillain Film to be, and so was Glass.
Anyway, order either release of Unbreakable, either U.S. or UK because they both play anywhere
And the video quality is very very good. Split looks fantastic too...

This movie is somewhat of a slow burner but I personally think it works so well. It gives us time to understand the characters and I just love Shyamalans story telling, In one of the early scenes we see Bruce Willis remove his wedding ring as an attractive woman sits next to him. It's such a subtle thing but it already explains a lot without directly force feeding it to the viewer. There are many more instances like this that help explain things that happen later in the story.
I also think this is one of Bruce Willis's best performances. His subdued nature really conveys a sense of pain/regrets from his past. Samuel L Jackson is also great in this too.
As mentioned this film is a slow burner but the action sequences that are in this are directed perfectly. Shyamalan keeps them basic but hard hitting, combined with the amazing score of the film by James Newton Howard the second half I found to be so emotional. This is arguably one of M.Night Shyamalans greatest films ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (Leave a like if you agree or I convinced you to watch this amazing movie)
Some mild spoilers.
Perhaps the directors most heavily plotted film to date, Unbreakable is definitely not for those looking for an action packed adventure with car chases and lots of explosions. Not that there is anything wrong with that, however if you are looking for an intelligent Hitchcockian thriller that starts slow and then accelerates towards a superb final twist then look no further. Perhaps it's me but I felt the film's story, construction tone and execution were similar to Vertigo, now regarded as one of the greatest films ever made.
Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson both give absolutely fantastic performances in the twin lead roles. The director/writer provides both actors terrific introductions and then gives the roles time to grow, and also allows the story to unfold at a leisurely but always interesting pace. As a result I was interested in them, I cared about them and wanted to know more about their lives and histories. Just enough back story is shoehorned into the screenplay to further flesh out our characters and this also helps to cushion that rather heavy plot.
With enough directorial style to sink a battleship Unbreakable has tonnes of style to add to that intriguing premise and should keep you glued to your set just to see how it all pans out. It's unlikely that you will guess the unexpected twist end even if you do watch very carefully. I was fooled and was pleasantly surprised and delighted to be outwitted. It's so refreshing when a film is actually not predictable. As with all clever stories you do need to watch, listen and actually think just a bit, and of course the director expects you to do a bit of work yourself and does not spoon-feed you the story. This is a story you need to watch in one uninterrupted viewing if at all possible.
All the other actors equip themselves very well and there is not one case of miscasting. However it has to be said that Willis and Jackson suck up every inch of the screen and the intelligent script keeps you listening to the great dialogue, especially from Jackson, which in my view is as good as Tarantino any day. With good special effects, a nice other worldly and atmospheric soundtrack and quite beautiful lighting photography, Unbreakable is a quality production by anybody's standard. At 102 minutes it does not outstay it's welcome but still feels long enough to be a proper movie experience.
With the recent Split and the upcoming Glass, these three films are apparently a trilogy of sorts so you may want to revisit this first episode before you take a trip to the multiplex.
Really well directed and acted. Good photography, editing and a very well written and sympathetic music score.
1st of 3 films; highly recommend.
It kinda reminds me of the series Heroes, but since it's a stealth film from where I remember there isn't that much in the way of exciting. It's just like the 6th sense. Instead of exciting you with explosions and things, it excites you with trying to make you think about what's going on and ect.
I highly reccomend buying this film, but if you're unsure then rent it and I promise you will not be dissapointed.
I personally cannot remember much of the film that wouldn't be spoilers, but I definantly remember that your attention gets drawn in as soon as you find out about Bruce having survived a train wreck that everyone died on and leaving without even a scratch of bruise to show for it.
