Is the beast seen too often?


In the movie Split we had that awesome build-up to it. We only got it at the end.

I get that the mystery is over now but still, in this movie it's like "oh look, some dudes, time to activate beast mode" for like 10 times.

"oh hey, can't open this pickle jar, beast mode on!".

Wasn't scary or imposing to see it so often. What you guys think?

No the Beast needed to be seen a fair bit in this. We'd had his build up movie now we needed to see him in action

That's a good point but it felt to me like they showed him more times than they had ideas what to do with him.

Fight scene with Dunn at the end is almost the same as the one at the start.

You had him turn into the beast to kick ass in the basement, then after going outside he does the same thing with some guards. Apparently that wasn't enough. Then the riot guys come and...he kicks their ass as well. Why not have one good scene instead of 3 almost identical ones.

No. I was already expecting this. It was time to see the Beast in his full glory and in action. That was a great thing about Split though. The overall suspense and the build up to the Beast, really liked it.

Exactly. The mystery surrounding The Beast and the initial impact he makes is in the past. And that is the point: Split was a different film with a different story to tell. The ending after all hinted at things to come.

As far as I’m concerned, it was inevitable that The Beast was going to be unleashed in Glass like we hadn’t seen before. I say we saw as much of The Beast as we needed to in this final installment.

I can’t imagine The Beast being used in any other way that could’ve worked better for Glass’ story; M. Night stayed true to the film’s comic inspirations.
