Unbreakable Movie Review Summary

Actors: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Robin Wright-Penn

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Unbreakable

With "The Sixth Sense," writer-director M. Night Shyamalan burst suddenly into the Hollywood big-time. His followup, "Unbreakable," is not quite as good -- a tricky, almost comic-book plot with the same nuanced performance by Bruce Willis, a little boy character (decently played by Spencer Treat Clark), and shocker ending. Willis is a university security guard in Philadelphia who miraculously survives a commuter train wreck. Samuel L. Jackson owns a comic book art dealership and is apparently Willis's brittle, accident-prone alter ego. Jackson helps Willis face his peculiar destiny, which is somehow entwined with his own.

The review of this Movie prepared by David Loftus

Bruce Willis plays David Dunn, who is in a train wreck, everyone but he is killed and ....there's not a scratch on him. Samuel L. Jackson tries to help Willis find the answer to this mystery and help him realize WHO HE REALLY IS? A shocking conclusion as usual from the Sixth Sense director...this one is worth seeing, but keep an open mind.
