Joel's 100 movies in 2015: Unbreakable

 

10. Unbreakable - 2/7/15

Feels even more now than at the time the predicate for the modern superhero era. One of Willis' best performances. I'm no apologist for Shymalan but I do enjoy his first four films. While The Sixth Sense seems to be the only one the mainstream has held any affinity for, to me it's a magic trick. Once you've heard the mechanism it's harder to enjoy the trick on repeat viewings. But Night's second film doesn't suffer from the same lessening. To me it grows with every viewing. 

5 stars.
