***Spoiler Warning***
Arguably M. Night Shyamalan's best follow up to The Sixth Sense was the one which immediately preceded it.
Unbreakable stars Bruce Willis as a man who is not only the sole survivor of a devastating train crash, but he managed to survive without a scratch on him. 
A passionate comic book collector claims to have the answers...
This is fundamentally a very brave attempt for writer-director M. Night Shyamalan to make a superhero movie more appealing to an audience who crave more "serious" work, and for the most part, it works. 
It does seem to fall between two stool though, with fans of the superhero genre not having any clue from the marketing trailer that this is a film for them, while those who aren't fans probably won't understand the references which are given a wink and a nod.
References to this film were made in the conclusion of the 2017 film Split (qv) before a sequel (Glass) was released in early 2019.
