Actor Bruce Willis and writer/director M. Night Shyamalan reunite after the surprise success of The Sixth Sense for this supernatural thriller. David Dunne (Willis) is taking a train from New York City back home to Philadelphia after a job interview that didn't go well when his car jumps the tracks and collides with an oncoming engine, with David the only survivor among the 131 passengers on board. Astoundingly, David is not only alive, he hardly seems to have been touched. As David wonders what has happened to him and why he was able to walk away, he encounters a mysterious stranger, Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson), who explains to David that there are a certain number of people who are "unbreakable" -- they have remarkable endurance and courage, a predisposition toward dangerous behavior, and feel invincible but also have strange premonitions of terrible events. Is David "unbreakable"? And if he is, what are the physical and psychological ramifications of this knowledge? Unbreakable also stars Robin Wright-Penn as Audrey, David's wife; the supporting cast includes Spencer Treat Clark and Joey Perillo.~Mark Deming

Honestly, this movie is near perfect. The performances by Willis and Jackson, the exceptional writing and direction by M. Night Shymalan, and that amazing score by James Newton Howard—all making for an incredible journey. My biggest gripe with this film has and always will be the ending. I’ve never been able to tell if Shymalan ran out of ideas or the studio forced him to end production prematurely, but it feels like there should have been far more than a fade to black and expositional texts appear. It’s not like the last few minutes ruin the movie at all, it just doesn’t have a worthy resolution. Regardless, this is definitely a must buy.
