Unbreakable... Good Movie

Unbreakable is the story about a security guard named David Dunn (Bruce Willis) who’s coming home from work and a train he is on derails and crash. 131 die, one survives (David), but he has no injuries not even a cut. Before that he’s a big time college football player that is supposed to have a promising future. He’s dating his girlfriend that is a cheerleader and they are in a bad car accident she gets hurt pretty bad but once again David is perfectly fine; he fakes an injury to be with his girl, later future wife. Later on, a comic book specialist named Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) contacts him to confront David with a theory: Elijah, who has been nicknamed "Mr. Glass" because he has fragile bones, thinks that David has got all which he himself lacks. He starts to find things or remember things out of his pass after he has this talk with Elijah. David has never been sick or physically hurt, and his strength exceeds more than he ever knew. After spending time trying not to believe in what Elijah was telling him David started to take his gift to help others. He has another gift that when he touches people he can see wrongs they committed out there pass. He finds this guy that killed this man and his wife but still has the kids at their home, so he follows the man to the house and saves the kids. He goes to see Elijah later and for the first time he shakes his hand. He saw that all those big “accidents” over the past few years were set up by Mr. Glass. Elijah thinks he had to do everything he did to find David; he felt that in his heart that there was more to the reason of his body being the way it is but in doing so he found that his role in this story was the villain because he’s the opposite of everything David is.
I like this movie a lot, it’s not about capes and tights but normal people that have crazy abilities but don’t want to admit it because it doesn’t seem possible until you add up all the facts. I also like how they didn’t over do it; they could have made David super strong but it would seem as if they were playing off superman’s strengths and it would go back to the men in tights thing about superheroes. David was strong but he was a man before super hero that’s why he faked his injury for the love of his life but he also went to save those kids without weapons or help.
