Sequels typically never live up to the first movie. This doesn’t mean sequels are bad, but for the most part you know what to expect. It is like craving a genuine street taco from the nitty gritty streets of Tijuana, but you don’t want to go to Tijuana because you want to live and you end up going to Taco Bell. That isn’t an insult because Taco Bell is good; it is just a different type of good.
Despite sequels hardly ever being as good as the original, there are some movies that we would love to see a second part to. Here are the top 5 movies that need sequels.
If you haven’t seen any of the movies in this then you have been warned that there will be spoilers.
Before M. Night Shyamalan blew audiences away with The Sixth Sense he made Unbreakable. This movie is a unique take on comic books, super heroes and villains. David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is the only survivor after a train accident that kills the rest of the 131 passengers on board. He is then persuaded by Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) that he has super natural abilities like a comic-book superhero. He helps David hone his powers and he is then able to see crimes that people have committed when touching them. The movie ends with the big revelation that the train accident and several other terrorists attacks that killed hundreds of people were caused by Elijah. He then informs David that he is the villain to his super hero. David calls the cops and Elijah, who had dubbed himself Mr. Glass is arrested and convicted of murder and terrorism.
That’s it? No return for David Dunn? Well yes and no. The 2016 M. Night Shyamalan movie Split is a stand alone sequel, meaning that it takes place in the same universe but doesn’t have anything to do with Unbreakable. The movie was a success and now it seems we will finally get a sequel to Unbreakable. It is expected to merge both movies, but until this is completed there still is no sequel to Unbreakable and that is long overdue.
