Brief Synopsis:
The re-telling of the Eastrail 177 Trilogy in SPLIT UNBREAKABLE GLASS was the first part of an experiment to retool these movies with a new narrative structure to facilitate surprises, adjustments to reveals, new parallels, new opening and closings and much much more. One can be surprised again.

In what may be a fanediting first, this version takes extensive material NOT used in SPLIT UNBREAKABLE GLASS (Dr Fletcher and David's marital issues) and tells the same (or similar tale) as an alternate version of the events from a very different perspective. Over 50% of this version of events is newly repuposed and previously unused and differently structured. With a different resolution and enough left untold to permit both edits to surprise and re-reveal, UNBREAKABLE GLASS SPLIT and SPLIT UNBREAKABLE GLASS can be watched in any order and still shine a BRIGHT light on M/ Night Shyamalan's genius, patience and discipline in anchoring these characters in the real world.
Intention:
To create a more emotional telling of the Eastrail 177 trilogy with a focus on emotions rather than alter egos and to provide a different resolution to the events told in Split Unreabable Glass. This still contains many surprises, new deleted scenes and over 90 mins of material that was not used in the Split Unbreakable Glass...with a new set piece and reveal which agai, WILL surprise and thrill viewers further.

SUG is Dead - Long live UGS.
I dont know how this happened, i like UGS better than SUG and i gave SUG already only 10´s.
Wraith did not only create a brilliant Fanedit here, no, he created a new Universe, a different spin that i was not expecting and i was a bit afraid of, to be honest.

When i watched Split Unbreakable Glass (SUG) some weeks ago, i went thru 3,5 hours of Film.
Already deconstructed and put together differently, so that the whole xperience shines light in some corners, that havent been lit before.
i liked it and my thoughts on that are written in a review.

It wasnt long after that, when i said to myself: "this Wraith guy, he said something like `Wait till you see UGS` ...i wonder what he ment".
And so i did find myself starting Unbreakable Glass Split (UGS) not long after and boy, what a treat.
I can not imagin what kind of work went into doing this (no, i have not yet watched the Making of) - i wonder if his house was full of Post its, or Maps laying out the whole storylines, so that he can cut and weave, like a tailor, to his own liking.

The Suit he tailored fits so good, the cuts made are brave and so unexpected sometimes.
To be so bold to remove Main Characters from a Film just to make the whole structure even more logical, was mind blowing.

I like this Edit better than SUG because it gave me a feeling that i havent gotten from the Originals and or SUG.
This Edit made the difference, it left me thinking more, asking more and frankly - it will be watched again, for its brilliant editing and use of music and overall the Idea to use the same material for a far different watch is just overwhelmingly good.

Before you all get diabetic from all the sugar coating that my review turned out to be, go and watch it yourself.

I just got finished watching this edit, after first watching its companion, Split Unbreakable Glass. Wraith did a great job with the construction and layout of this edit. The overall story is similar, but the material used and the way it was told leaves the viewer in a different feeling. While I enjoyed SUG more, this edit was constructed just as well, Wraith is an excellent editor. Definitely give this one a watch if you're a fan of SUG.

Unlike Wraith's other fanedit ("Split-Unbreakable-Glass"), this version completely removes the character of Casey Cooke (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) and as such, removes the entire plot (or should I say, sub-plot) of the Horde's focus on her. This results in the Horde's story focusing on the development and growth of "The Horde" and "The Beast" in particular, and how it/they interacts with the other primary characters: David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson).

David Dunn's growth into a superhero, Elijah Price's choice of embracing his role as a supervillian, and The Horde's semi-tragic "birth" into "Frankenstein's Monster" all converge brilliantly - like a visual ballet - and edited together by Wraith into a film that would be worthy of a Steven Spielberg production.

Well done Wraith !

Very enjoyable, certainly benefited from a shorter running time.
An opportunity to see the characters from a different perspective.
Very well executed, thank you.

Watched after SUG, again shows just what can be achieved with a skillful hand, the story told with same sources but in a way that leaves you feeling profoundly different.

While I think I prefer the companion edit on balance, both are great pieces of work.
Hope that whoever I get around to seeing the original Glass it doesn't disappoint!
