Since “The Sixth Sense,” film­maker M. Night Shya­malan’s ca­reer has been hit-or-miss, but two of his big­ger suc­cesses were “Un­break­able” and “Split.” He merges char­ac­ters and sit­u­a­tions from those movies in the ef­fec­tive melo­drama, a siz­able hit named for the char­ac­ter Sa­muel L. Jack­son played in “Un­break­able.” Jack­son turns up again here, as does that film’s Bruce Willis, whose al­ter ego is a self-styled, spe­cial-pow­ered vig­i­lante on the trail of the mul­ti­ple-per­son­al­ity vil­lain played by James McAvoy in “Split.” McAvoy also reprises his role here, and it’s only a mat­ter of time be­fore all of those fig­ures con­verge – with Sarah Paul­son in an­other Amer­i­can hor­ror story as a psy­chi­a­trist who as­sesses all of them. It helps to have seen the ear­lier films to get the most out of this one, but it’s not an ab­so­lute re­quire­ment; Anya Tay­lor-Joy also re­turns from “Split.” DVD ex­tras: DVD ex­tras: deleted scenes; al­ter­nate open­ing; “A Con­ver­sa­tion with James McAvoy and M. Night Shya­malan.” (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On De­mand)
