Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson star in a mind-shattering, suspense-filled thriller that stays with you long after the end of this riveting supernatural film. After David Dunn (Willis) emerges from a horrific train crash as the sole survivor -- and without a single scratch on him -- he meets a mysterious sranger (Jackson). An unsettling stranger who believes comic book heroes walk the earth. A haunting stranger, whose obsession with David will change David's life forever.
Although this DVD is wrapped in the handsome packaging of the "Vista Series," the extras here are minimal. The first disc has no extras but is packed with four separate Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks and is THX certified. The second disc holds four features, including a standard making-of featurette (15 minutes long) and a nifty segment that allows viewers to compare the storyboards to the final film and separate the music and sound effects in the train station sequence. More satisfying is the 20-minute short on the state of comic books, featuring revealing comments from critics and authors including Frank Miller (of the touchstone Dark Knight series). Seven deleted scenes are introduced by the director, and while none is significant to the plot, they are all must-see for fans of the film. Though this first installment of the Vista Series may deliver less than viewers might expect, the exquisite attention to design promises big things from future endeavors. --Doug Thomas

So that might be another review!
In addition to a haunting soundtrack (and a horrific ending) that sticks with you long after the end, its unexplored fodder for future tales is overdue to be re-examined (and shall be) in the future, by director M. Night Shyamalan.
(By the way, Shyamalan's most recent film, Split, is also worth seeing--I won't say why, that those who haven't seen it may avoid spoilers.)
Self worth and individual identity were the basic draw which allowed the audience to project themselves into Bruce Willis' character.
Beyond the unreality of having survived an undeniable catastrophe, he plays a good average guy character to whom anybody can relate. He honestly is struggling with major life realities, finding a job (reason for being on train), struggling in a relationship and searching for meaning and happiness in his life. The two former may be considered symptoms or byproducts of the latter, but all emphasize his struggle with self worth and identity.
This identity struggle is what allows for a perfect blend of transition into the concept of being super human, a comic book like super hero. Spider-Man, Superman, Wolverine, to name a few all endured, conquered and came to some sort of understanding with who they were as individuals and how these unique abilities factor into their existence.
The last thing I will say is I enjoyed the presentation of a possibility being given as a rational corporeal explanation for what we fictionalize and adorn as supernatural. To consider that authentic human abilities beyond normal standards may only have been evolutionary or genetic anomalies of a far less grand scale is a profound consideration. These accounts of such individuals may then have been embellished in order to facilitate their being passed along as stories or in a smaller sense, as implicated by Jackson's character, to preserve a record, the basic purpose of story telling throughout history.
