    It's not great, but it's not the worst of this batch of Cinemalaya movies. At the least, it was not as boring as Belle Douleur's pretty pictures.

    We usually confuse interesting settings and characters for the presence of conflict and story. Sorry, this could have been something but it's not.

    Piece of beautiful shit. Nice visuals. Not much happening. The problems that pile up in the last twenty or so minutes try to make up for the lack of story.

    It was a great suspenseful ride. Great acting from all leads. Wish that the rest of Cinemalaya was as engaging as this film

    Love the Story

    I kinda did not feel the romance. Maybe it's not a Guy Ritchie thing. I see the Ritchie in the acrobatics and stunts. But I felt nothing. Alladin, the animated one, was magical. This was just okay.

    What the f is this ? The movie takes its sweet time establishing that the main character is so unlucky in love. Wow ain’t that original. And she’s unlucky till the end. Those flashbacks to her childhood don’t help make the movie profound. They make it look pretentious.

    It’s a Hallmark kind of movie. Viggo was good and engaging, but Mahershala looked like he just learned acting like he just learned how to play the piano. Too careful. I know that he was playing someone uptight but it was almost like he was playing Judi Dench playing the Queen.

    MTRCB
    R-13

    Shyamalan forgot that we don’t really follow his movies like we do with the Avengers. My viewing could have been helped by watching Unbreakable and Split, but was it going to be worth it anyway. No. Glass is too ambitious but like the facility that was supposed to hold these supermen, it lacked fortitude and weight. Who the f assigns one security guard to three supposedly dangerous people? Who the f writes that kind of s for such an ambitious premise? Shyamalan. As always.
