McAvoy killed that part.... Oscar performance... etcetera.

People are saying he deserved an oscar, i doubt the academy is willing to give a man 24 oscars at once.

The PROBLEM is that you can't tell people to watch Unbreakable before watching this because it will spoil the ending, but if you don't know to watch Unbreakable you won't get the ending of Split. What is a boy to do in this cruel world
Laura Hoke
When I saw Bruce Willis at the end, I freaked! I jumped off the couch and started slapping the ground with my hands yelling "yaasssss!"......My boyfriend at the time said "you are the weirdest girl I've ever dated, this movie is dumb" I knew in that moment we weren't meant to be lol

Thith wath a good movie, ekthetera

What's so bad about the beast? I mean, he was climbing on walls, busting bars and tearing flesh, sounds like a better villain than I've seen from any superhero movie

Split is a mega hit movie. Collected $ 150 million for a $9 million budget. Night Shyamalan is BACK baby !
Kenny Tee
Usually, it's Sam Jackson who does the recruiting at the end of every movie...but Bruce Willis will do.

Yes! The great thing about the plot twist in Split is that its layered. The first one hits you when he starts becoming the beast. The twist there is that his fractured personality created a real manifestation of his madness. The second twist occurs at the very end with the Bruce Willis cameo. It's all taken place in the Unbreakable universe, and the entire movie was an origin story for a super villain. And the third twist, at least for me, was on the car ride home. I realized that "Horde" is the perfect foil to Bruce Willis's character, David Dunn. He believes that the broken people in life are the pure ones. They see things differently because they've had difficulty in their lives. That is, after all, why he lets Casey go. He sees that she's been broken. Well, I would venture to guess Horde is not going to take to kindly to a person who is impervious to damage. The entire film sets him up to be diametrically opposed to Dunn. Brilliant. M Night has redeemed himself in my book. I'm on board.

Another thing you didn't mention as far as The Unbreakable tie-in goes is the fact McAvoy's character's father died on the train that Bruce Willis survived. That's why Kevin laid down the bouquet of flowers at the train station. So not only did Mr. Glass create a Super Hero (Bruce Willis). But he also created a Villain (James McAvoy). The death of Kevin's mother caused him to go off the deep end.

That dance scene was PRICELESS :') . And James Macavoy's acting was just INCREDIBLE AND FLAWLESS.. etcetera

The Beast I don't consider it a twist, it was even the tagline at least here in Central America. I think it was very well managed, too. I was afraid Kevin would turn into a CG monster of such, but it was really good because it was mostly a psychological transformation... with great acting, it made the trick.

Chris, you missed the point of the 'girl in the car' scene at the end.  Notice how the following shot lingers on the lion statue?  her ordeal with Kevin, gives her the courage to finally face her Uncle and 'deal' with him.  Lion=courage.  Get it?
wjepps09
Who noticed the Kanye shout out? I don't think it is a coincidence. In Kanyes first hit song (as a rapper) in 2003 "through the wire" he has a verse "unbreakable, what you thought, they'd call me Mr.Glass" and that was M. Nights way of returning the favor 14 years later.

Who else is here because they are pumped for Glass?

I saw the movie yesterday in an empty theater. Best movie going experience ever. I was the only one there, Split was a fantastic movie.
LitCaveman
When the best was pulling the bars apart I was like “holy shit 😮”
Joshua Osborne
So now I have to go watch Unbreakable to get the full awesomeness of split?

Just watched Split tonight, and oh man was it a freaking great supervillain movie! I can't believe I just watched an origin story that is connected to a classic superhero movie way back in the 2000s, the ending just totally blew my mind and made me said "Holy Shit" over and over again. There's possibility that Shyamalan gonna rival the MCU and DCU with his own cinematic universe, aka SCU, lol.
Meghan Callaghan
I watched this film last night in a small theater filled with teenagers (26 years old myself), and I was so nervous they would ruin it. But as soon as it started, and one shout out joke was thoroughly ignored, the audience was totally engrossed in the story. I'm so PUMPED for any future films in this universe. I loved this movie, and all the tense parts made me smile with excitement! (I guess my response to tension is to get hyper, I dunno, haha).
MrDannoCain
Can't help but think its poetic that as you peel away the layers of Anya Taylor-Joy's character you are told in the film by Dennis about how she wears a lot of shirts. Wonder if im thinking too deep into this or if its a very clever way to physically show you that you're learning more about the character.
Old-Guy-Rants
There is a brief appearance by Kevin as a child with his Mother in Unbreakable at the 53:52 minute mark...Check it out everybody...
Amon Leopold Göth
LMFAOOO M. Night. Shyamalan made a better super hero than DC and a better villain than Marvel.

gearmast3r
I just got out of Split and I haven't seen Unbreakable yet... I'm ashamed.
mike kenneth
the orange man by james newton howard is my favorite film score of all time.. when it played in split i sat right the fuck up in my chair like whaaaaaat.
a.d.w. n.
I loved this movie and I didn't see unbreakable. Sure, my husband and I were confused about Bruce Willis, but we knew his appearance was significant, we just concluded that because of that and Kevin Crumb living, it would be a sequel. I loved how that girls brokenness saved her. Good storytelling.

Have you never seen someone jacked up on speed and steriods? the best was belevible. check out stories about bath salts.

Hi Chris, I just watched Split the past Saturday and it was Incredible! I was on the edge of my seat! Seeing the movie for the second time tonight!
Michael Best
When I heard the Unbreakable theme after the beast escaped and was in the room, i knew something was up. The music gave it away. And then I saw David Dunn...pandemonium!

Ok, this is is my SPLIT FAN THEORY *SPOILERS* (and excuse my English, I am a Spanish speakers) So, everybody is saying that this is a supervillain origin story... But, guys, according to Unbreakable Cannon, there is TWO types of villain: The Soldier, and the Mastermind. James McVoy seems to be a Soldier type: He is uber strong, but he doesn't seem to be very smart... And the only mastermind that we know of, Mr Glass, is in jail... So, what other character could fulfill the Mastermind type of villain? Lets see... It has to be very smart, it has to be a survivor, it has to be missunderstood, it has to be tortured by his or her peers through out all his or her infancy... Do you see where I'm going with this? Split is NOT just ONE supervillian origin story. It is the origin story of TWO of them: James McVoy's character, the soldier villain, ANNNNND... Anya Taylor-Joy's character, the NEW MASTERMIND ;) Think about it: She is a survivor, she is very very smart, all the kids avoid her, she has troubles with authorities, she was systematically abused. And she is a HUNTER. AND SHE IS PISSED OFF. Plus, she is the opposite of our hero (Bruce Willis) too: He is an old men, she is a teenage girl. He had an all stars childhood (extremely popular, football star, married her high school sweetheart, a cheerleader) she was abused by her uncle, and has no friends, and she is generally considered the weirdo (she was invited to that party in the first scene out of petty) Plus, she has similarities to Samuel Jackson's character too: Self impose isolation, hate/disdain through out others, intelligence, patience, and a "weird set of eyes": "Slightly bigger" than the rest of us, as signifying a different point of view (explained in Unbreakable as a Mastermind trademark) So, buckled up! she is coming!

Jonathan Lemmon
I just watched the movie. I didn't even notice the Unbreakable theme was at the end until you said so! Just got back from iTunes and I'm utterly floored! Shyamalan is an evil genius! Lol
Kuro Chinoike
Can't wait to see Glass
Gabe Williams
I'm so glad your book recommended me to unbreakable, the ending of this blew my mind!!!!

In my theater, nobody got the ending...

In my opinion, this movie is absolutely amazing, this might just be my favorite movie. I can't put into words how great this was to dive into.
Onkel Leon. På grillen

Everything Reviewer
I loved the ending. But it left my friends clueless because they hadn't seen unbreakable.
Josh Williams
And then Glass happened..
Isaac Campos
Also I fully agree on the dance scene, that one was incredibly amazing performance.
TheStewieOne
Looks like M. Night is back up on top.
chøke
I just watched Unbreakable, and by God, it was even more incredible than I thought.
Kevin Refran Ripas
i thought the twist was that the girl is also split. being traumatized as a child i was thinking shes also hiding someone inside.
Bill Furler
I watched split and I did not understand anything.I haven't seen Unbreakable or whatever.What is going on?
Posthumous Joker
James McAvoy is criminally underrated. Absolutely fantastic actor, and a brilliant performance.
Richard Qian
Now the sequel is here Chris, GLASS 2019
Ανδρέας Χούνδρης
dude, that was exactly my reaction!!!!! i agree 100%
Chris Cavagnaro
I am so happy I avoided any potential spoilers before I saw this movie. I went as far as to not watch any videos from the normal people I follow who posted non-spoiler reviews. It's the first time I've done that and it completely paid off.
Erick Alejandro
this is about to be one of the best trilogies ever made. unbreakable, split and glass
Kate King
Just saw this because of your first review. Oh. My. God. Loved it to pieces!
30Lynniepoo
Guess I'll have to see unbreakable now that it is somehow associated with thiSplit!!
mercerthechimp
Finished watching Split 2 minutes ago. Started watching Unbreakable 2 minutes ago
German Survivalist
So I finally watched Split, I somehow managed to not get spoilered, and I freakin loved it. The kinda supernatural aspects of it turned me off for a bit but after I saw that scene it all made sense. McAvoy killed it. And that moment when I saw Bruce Willis sitting there in that diner I seriously got goosebumps. I hope we get a sequel to Unbreakable, it`s one of my favorite movies ever and I always thought it would make a great start for a series.
Juan Jaramillo
I loved this film but its a shame that i've never seen unbreakable I feel like the reveal would've had more impact but I'm definitely gonna check it out asap
Jerome Yudiet
please do a review of the movie "the next three days" by Russell crowe....please...thank you
Abraham Rivera
Do an Analyzed of Split & Unbreakable!!!
Rob M
James McAvoy was simply amazing and deserves an OSCAR for this performance. M. Night Shyamalan is once again at the top of his game when frankly I thought little of his last few movies. The ending was mind blowing and ended with my favorite character from all of his movies. This movie is a must SEE!!!!!!!
hehe xd
Split has created one of the best memes, picture of macovy captioned "when you don't need a squad because you are the squad"
MeroTV
I think this is my favorite second movie of his. Unbreakable being nr1
Triple C
loved it. thank you for sharing
Khue Lor
Sequel should be called Unbreakable Kevin Split
goutham edara
I just watched it. What a movie. Totally stumped by it. It is a keeper. As soon as the music started I knew whats happening. Also, it is not a twist. It is just a reveal with willis cameo.
Da Noob Sandstorm
Professor Xavier's kid persona in the Split film is an Oscar worthy performance by itself
Josh Partridge
thank you, because you reviewed this movie I watched it, and I loved it
Insert Clever Username
How overstuffed would "Unbreakable" have been if he kept Kevin/The Horde in the film....This is the best way for so many reasons.
txmoney
I had the exact reaction at the end when unbreakable music played faintly in the background
oldschool1987
I guessed the twist from the poster, it has the same crack on it like the Unbreakable poster. I'm so happy lol
Bereeze
Thanks for your review I wouldn't have went to the theater without it, great film :)
SuneTheMairn
Split was fantastic, I also told my friend sitting next to me "do you recognize the music!?" Absolutely fantastic, not spoiler, but reveal. Great, Shyamalan!, welcome back to form :)
Santiago Moneta
if you want to see an amazing performance on split personality disorder, watch "United states of Tara"
Ismael Hassan
A complete let down ! disappointing ! and Yes I have seen unbreakable !
Seductive Butter
Has Knight been building his own superhero cinematic universe??
Andrew Golubev
when music started to play i was like... - wait..wait... isn't it? wheere i heard it? WAIT A SECOND! HOLY SHIT!!!!! my god, best feeling to out of theater, this is why a like them
tm1234
So should I watch Unbreakable before I watch Split?

I also thought that the girl had some sort of invisibility ability only hinted at in the beginning of the movie. When Dennis gets in the car, we can see that she instinctively knows something is wrong when she sees the food on the ground. And then, Dennis attacks the two girls in the back of the car, even taking off his mask when he is done. Also, at NO point does Dennis even make eye contact with her, not even after he turns around after attacking the two girls in the back. And again, he takes off his mask showing us that he believes he is done with that part, as taking off his mask, to put it back on a second later, seems, odd and nonsensical. And only when she makes an "external sound" by opening the door and causing it to ping, does Dennis seem to become aware of her. You can even see it takes him about 2 to 3 seconds to even react after first setting eyes on her and then he proceeds to put on the mask back on and spray her. I immediately thought about this while I first saw it. And I thought the "loner" status we learn about her almost as the movie begins serves to point out that not everything is right with her, which we eventually learn is her abuse. But I also believe it could be a hint also to an invisibility power that makes her "become invisible" in a literal sense, but not by changing her body, but by changing the thoughts of those around her, almost "erasing her existence" from their conscious minds, which would be a cool twist to the invisibility power which almost always is a body thing, but here, could be a sort of "perception erasure" which is why people would not react crazily when the "invisibility" turns off as I guess it could be like they just remember she is there, not really her "appearing" from nowhere. Sounds complicated, but it really isn't. TL:DR she could possibly make people forget her presence. I mean, clearly, I could be looking too far into it, but I believe it has grounded basis for it. After all, Kevin's power is not his body, but his 'split' mind. It is his mind that changes his body and gives it 'supernatural' abilities. We learn that every ability of his is based on the animals of the zoo. The Beast is a multitude of physical traits that he adopted from the animals there. So, in his case, they have already shown that a human mind can change their bodies to an extreme level, and in the girl's way, her feeling of feeling alone in the world after her father died, could have made it be that she could make herself invisible (by feeling invisible) to a certain extent, and in this case, her immediate sense of danger "activated" her ability. Another hint I got during the car scene is how sounds seems to dim out when she notices the food. Like her adrenaline is rushing and there is a subtle and lingering sound like a chord playing, even while the girls in the back speak and are attacked, and this chord and ambiance is abruptly turned off the second she opens the door and it makes the ping sound, probably causing her to lose concentration and turning her power off. Again, Im probably reading a lot into that one scene, but, I've mentioned it to some of my friends and they say if the third movie pulled this "twist", they would probably be like "ohhhh, that makes sense" instead of thinking it was an asspull. xD
Hecubusx
I 100% had the EXACT same reaction, I almost completely checked out in the last 15-20 minutes when he became the beast then he really brought it back around.
Azhar Rashid
Hey @chris stuckman, what do you think tis universe should be called...ShaymaVerse...?
brian frescas
"I didn't really like this movie. Beast stuff was meh. Oh, it's tied to Unbreakable? Ok I love this movie." Yeah okay dude, sure.
