Security guard David Dunn uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man who has twenty-four personalities.
Director M. Night Shyamalan talked about the importance of colors in this movie, saying, "I chose green for David Dunn because psychologically, it is associated with life giving properties. David is the protector of life. I chose ochre or mustard for The Beast because this color is associated with religious ceremonies, Hindu and Buddhist. A monk's robe. I see The Beast as an evangelist, a preacher who wants to help save 'The Broken.' Finally, I chose purple for Mr. Glass because this color has been associated with royalty, majestic qualities. Elijah sees himself as important, a main character of comics."
Kevin Wendell Crumb:
I hope for your sake that he likes you.
Elijah's scars are shown as a long line with several small lines crossing over it at regular intervals - these are meant to depict sutures from a surgery. However, an actual scar heals as a line bordered by dots, as only the places pierced by the needle would leave a scar. It is only suture material that crosses perpendicular to the original trauma line, which would leave no lasting mark.
The closing credits are accompanied by stills from 'Unbreakable' (2000), 'Split' (2016) and this movie.
