Film #29: Unbreakable (2000)
Plot - Bruce Willis is a guy with overtly high bone density who can see the bad things that people do when he touches them. It tries to take a realistic look at what would happen if your average guy became a superhero, which is better than some crappy psychological thriller Sixth Sense crap.
Form - Pretty subtle for a film about a superhero. Don't know whether that's a good thing or not.
F/X - None
Acting - Bruce Willis sort of just acts like it's the Sixth Sense again and Sammy J does his thing, which is pretty cool.
Mise en scene - It tries to make everything look like "the real world" circa 2000, which looks vaguely similar to "the real world" circa now.
Quotables - No.
Cool stuff - Not really at all, but it's still an okay, watchable film.
