This movie is worth watching. That can't be said for much else of the director's filmography.

This was an amazing psychological thriller! Great acting and likeable characters. What I love about this film is someone could ba a hero and not even know! Exciting plot kept me interested the whole time! Awesome and exciting! I like the creepiness of the film and the amount of action! Recommend watching!

I loved this film. There are few films that surprise you from beginning to end. I had no idea what was going to happen next. Not knowing was a delightful feeling.
There have been several negative reviews about the writing and the ending. If you watch Unbreakable without preconceptions the ending makes perfect sense. The writing is tight and precise. The acting superb. So pop it in your DVD player and enjoy it as the layers peel back to reveal a unique and rather wonderful film.

An unbelievably terrible script. I almost stopped watching it four times, but if I had left I would have missed the only decent part of the movie which was at the end. Those three actors must have been desperate for work to sign up for this turkey.

Why don’t they explain what Elijah meant by “I’m not a mistake” ? Audrey Dunn is played by Robin Wright Penn.

Didn't know much about this movie except that it was part of a highly-rated trilogy and thought I would give it a chance. Was I ever glad I did! Once I got into it I really had to watch it until the end. I now have requested the second film, Split, and am really looking forward to it as well as the third film, Glass, in the trilogy which the EPL has and which I will request once I've seen Split.

The idea that Samuel Jackson’s wheelchair-bound character should be a formidable villain, embittered and brilliant, could be praised as original. But everything in the film indicates unfamiliarity with what real life is like, which explains why its characters take comic books seriously.

This is M. Night Shyamalan's masterpiece.
Ironically, I panned it at the time of its original release for being pokily paced and pretentious.
But after giving it another look a few years back, it dawned on me that "Unbreakable" had eerily predicted the two major social/cultural trends of the 21st century:
(1) domestic terrorism, and
(2) comic books.

Neither of Shyamalan's long-time-coming follow-up films ("Split" and "Glass") were nearly as memorable.
But as a stand-alone, "Unbreakable" endures.

READ:
Unbreakable is the 1st movie in a Trilogy about these characters, the first movie was “Unbreakable” Staring Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson. The 2nd movie is called “Split” with James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy, and of course the 3rd movie is called Glass Staring all 4 of them together. Bruce Willis is Unbreakable, James McAvoy is Split (as in Personality), and Samuel L Jackson is Glass (as in brittle bones like glass). The girl is used as a Plot Point for James McAvoy In both Split and Glass.
I hope this helps some with understanding the Trilogy and where and who the characters are in relation to the different movies.

Elijah Price: Why is it, do you think, that of all the professions in the world you chose protection?

David Dunn: You are a very strange man.

Elijah Price: You could have been a tax accountant. You could have owned your own gym. You could have opened a chain of restaurants. You could've done of ten thousand things, but in the end, you chose to protect people. *You* made that decision, and I find that very, very interesting.

Elijah Price: Now that we know who you are... I know who I am. I'm not a mistake! It all makes sense. In a comic, you know how you can tell who the arch-villain's going to be? He's the exact opposite of the hero, and most time's they're friends, like you and me. I should've known way back when. You know why, David? Because of the kids. They called me Mr. Glass.

This suspense thriller unfolds as the audience is introduced to David Dunn. Not only is he the sole survivor of a horrific train-crash that killed 131 people he doesn't have a scratch on him. Elijah Price is an obscure character who approaches Dunn with a seemingly far fetched theory behind it all.
