Are superheroes truly Unbreakable, or can they easily be Split?

Kevin Crumb has 24 different personalities, also known as „the Horde“. One of them, „the Beast“, gives him superhuman strength and demands him to sacrifice people it considers impure. After an incident that happened three weeks ago, he is known to the public but still on the loose.

David Dunn is a man with extraordinary powers – he is invulnerabe and can see other people’s evil side by touch. Together with his son, he uses his ability to chase criminals and is on the track of the Beast. But before he can hunt it down, both get caught by the police and confined in the Raven Hill Memorial Mental Institute.

Also being kept there is Elijah Prince a.k.a. Mr. Glass, an intelligent yet frail man, imprisoned years ago for causing a train accident to reveal Dunn’s power. Held under sedative medication, he still plans to show the world that superhumans exist.

And Dr. Ellie Staple, the psychiatrist leading the institute, wants to convince the men that they are just ordinary people without any special abilities.

As each of them pursues their plans, a rough chase begins …

Glass can be considered a unicorn of superhero movies, which treads on a challenging thin line; believability. (Medium.com)
