Un­break­able ( 2000)

SFX - - 20 greatest films -

Can­nily forg­ing a com­pelling comic- book movie long be­fore Marvel launched its cin­e­matic uni­verse ( though the same year the sim­i­larly pre­scient first X- Men was re­leased), M Night Shya­malan proved he was ahead of the curve with his fol­low- up to The Sixth Sense. Bruce Wil­lis and Sa­muel L Jack­son are per­fectly cast as to­tal op­po­sites – one an in­de­struc­tible lunk, the other a frail ge­nius – and the film it­self is a dark, thrilling fa­ble, and the last time Shya­malan was truly great.

Spidey only wanted a short back and sides. “And this one’s in Near Mint con­di­tion!” They’re happy be­cause they eat lard.
