This was an extremely enjoyable fan edit to watch. Having seen all three of these movies several times, and with a deep love for Unbreakable since it came out, I was blown away by the merging of Split into the narrative of Unbreakable. The time jumps were handled so well that no title cards were needed.

As other reviewers have mentioned there were some very minor potholes, but they were in fact so minor that I didn't notice them until I read about them from another review. In that sense for me they didn't exist, and even after knowing about them they don't bother me.

Seeing new scenes mixed in with Unbreakable was really a treat. I had the DVD as a young teen and I loved watching the deleted scenes, so to see them so smoothly incorporated into the narrative here was really fantastic.

My only problem with this edit is the ending (having not seen SUG yet). It felt a bit abrupt, even though I really like the idea of ending the edit on David carrying his wife to bed in the afterlife. Maybe the credits scene with the clandestine organization could go in the mid-credits instead of the post-credits? It's a pretty important plot point that some people may miss. As it was when the credits started rolling I could help feeling unsatisfied. There was just a little more to the story that would have rounded it out perfectly for me.

All of this is to say that this is a monumental success! It actually managed to redeem Glass for me, which after the incredible movies that were Unbreakable and Split felt like a letdown. I have to compliment you on your great great work, and I will be viewing SUG soon!

Unbreakable, Split, and Glass have great ideas but they suffer from scenes that drag, over explanations and awkward pauses to the point that each one of them can be reduced significantly, but there is a wonderful story to tell, it is almost like these films request a fan edit. It would be a challenge however to keep the heart and soul of those movies by editing them.

Thus we get 2 fan edits - SUG and UGS and you will get more enjoyment from these films by watching one of these fan edits.
But which one to pick

SUG has the superior narrative but UGS (This Edit) is more enjoyable and better edited.

UGS focuses on the main story and throws most of the subplots which creates the most enjoyable experience you can have with these movies, but it accidentally creates some plotholes that you may not noticed on the first watch like "When did Kevin get shot with a shotgun?", "How does Elijah know about David's weakness?" etc....

I also don't like that we only hear about some of Kevin's split personalities but we only get to see them 1.5 hours after they are mentioned, " the plot of Split suffered the most from this edit.
The plot of Unbreakable is now better with the new removed scenes, but the origin story of Elijah shouldn't be cut, The second half of the movie focuses on the story from Glass is perfectly fine (considering the source material)

If you are looking for the most enjoyable version and don't care about plot holes this is the version for you.
Personally, it is my favorite out of the 2 but I still desire a version that removed more subplots and fixed some plot holes.

There are fine fanedits, good fanedits, excellent fanedits, and there are Wraith's. Just wow. I can hardly imagine the amount of effort and planning put into this gigantic edit to make it work so well.

I specially liked the way in which the Unbreakable and Split lines developed in parallel, and how the protagonists became selfaware of themselves in a similar, but also very different ways. The use of alternate sequences for Unbreakable that actually provide the same information as in the original movie but in a different context was also a great detail. I also liked the focus on the main character's psyche, rather than telling the story from others' point of view (the son or the kidnapped girl, in the original movies). The final part, which mostly belongs to Glass is the weakest segment but it is also because the original conclusion already felt too generic in comparison with the two former movies (the psychiatrist and the organization behind).

The edit is, as always, top notch. If it wasn't for the different cinematography (more analog for Unbreakable and more digital for Split/Glass), many sequences would feel like belonging to the same movie. As always, a great thanks to Wraith to entertain us with a great piece of work

The deep, psychological nuances of the protagonist/antagonists gradually grow and shine in this perspicacious edit - absolutely unlike my watered-down experience with the separate original versions. It begins with David-Elijah : Kevin-Fletcher parallels and smoothly segues to the Dr. Staple arc - punctuating the theme of 'Belief is the only superpower/weakness' of the featured superhero/supervillains.

It won't be a hyperbole to say that Wraith must be hired by the industry ASAP, considering his brilliant work with this version which, IMHO, will be the best way to watch this trilogy. Given his understanding and talent, hope he works with more psyche-oriented complex projects such as Mindhunter, True Detective, Severance, Too Old to Die Young, Hannibal, Dexter, Mr. Robot, Red Riding, or Millennium Trilogy. All be Justified!

I finally got round to watching this version after watching Split Unbreakable Glass a while ago, and I have to say this is definitely my favourite of the two. Maybe it's just because I like slower movies, but I felt the way UGS handled the mysteries in the story was much more satisfying than UGS.
Cutting Casey from the story entirely was a bold choice, and I do think the edit suffers for it at the end, but it still works as a complete story. I also really liked what was done with Elijah's mother at the end.
While I appreciate that the entire point of this version was to use footage cut from SUG, and I think the incorporation of deleted scenes was especially effective, I still think that at least having Casey as a side character was needed to elevate the edit from a 9 to a 10 narratively.
Overall, I still prefer the original Unbreakable to the version presented here, but I think that UGS is a better way to view the trilogy than the original movies, and I might even prefer it to the original Split despite the fact that the main character of that film is completely absent.
A very good edit, definitely recommend watching.
