There is a nod to both of the biggest comic book companies Marvel and DC in the film. The description of The Osaka Tower as 'A True Marvel' and on a news headline stating that Washington "D.C. offers its respect". The DC Comics TV show Batman: Fine Feathered Finks (1966) is shown in a comic book store scene. See more »
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. See more »
We keep bringing him sacred food, and nothing's happening. I... The Beast, he showed himself twice to the masses of the broken and-and they're not believing. There's no revolution. I...

In the closing credits, James McAvoy is credited for playing ALL of his aliases/personalities, rather than just one name. See more »
Not sure what's worse, this film or the fake 9-10/10 reviews.
Not what I expected - in a disappointing way. Then add all the ridiculous praising 10/10 reviews and it takes more away from any positive aspects this film had.
For starters, outstanding performance as usual by James McAvoy, and he perfectly brought back his Split characters. Samuel L. Jackson was great as always and even Bruce Willis actually showed interest in performing for this film.
My issue was that the writing was all over the place and the 129 min length felt like 180 mins. Maybe it was the pacing, or more needed to be edited/cut to shorten this film to a more acceptable 100-110 length. The directing was decent but nothing spectacular.
I expected more but sadly was disappointed. It's not a flop, nor is it a 10/10 like all these fake reviews. It's a well deserved 6/10. Would I recommend it? Sure if you're a fan of Unbreakable, Split and its characters. Would I see it again? Nope.
