Product Description

Product Description

From M. Night Shyamalan, the writer/director of THE SIXTH SENSE and UNBREAKABLE, comes the story of the Hess family in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, who wake up one morning to find a 500-foot crop circle in their backyard. Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) and his family are told extraterrestrials are responsible for the sign in their field. They watch, with growing dread, the news of crop circles being found all over the world. SIGNS is the emotional story of one family on one farm as they encounter the terrifying last moments of life as the world is being invaded. "It's easy for a filmmaker to blow up the world -- but what Shyamalan does is much riskier. He tries to blow our minds. I was engaged by every inch of SIGNS." - Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper.

Amazon.ca

This B movie with noble aspirations is the work of a gifted filmmaker whose storytelling falls short of his considerable stylistic flair. While addressing crises of faith in the framework of an alien-invasion thriller, M. Night Shyamalan (in his follow-up to The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable) favors atmospheric tension over explanatory plotting. He injects subtle humor into expertly spooky scenes, but the story suffers from too many lapses in logic. The film's faults are greatly compensated by the performance of Mel Gibson as a widower whose own crisis of faith coincides with the appearance of mysterious crop circles in his Pennsylvania cornfield... and hundreds of UFOs around the globe. With his brother (Joaquin Phoenix) and two young children (Rory Culkin, Abigail Breslin), the lapsed minister perceives this phenomenal occurrence as a series of signs and portents, while Shyamalan pursues a spookfest with War of the Worlds overtones. It's effective to a point, but vaguely hollow at its core. --Jeff Shannon

I loved this movie, unlike my husband who thought it was a complete rip-off and waste of money. He is a sci-fi fan and wanted answers on where the alien invaders came from, what was their objective, how their technology worked, why the crop circles, etc. All very valid points, but I am still in love with this movie because I love character pieces. To me, this was an excellent character piece about a man who loses his faith and finds it again, and all the alien stuff was merely window dressing. You could have the same story of a minister losing his faith anywhere and I would still love it, but the alien invasion does gives the story extra zing.

Living in a country farmhouse out in the open cornfields stretching as far as the eye can see in rural Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, Graham Hess (Mel Gibson), newly a widower and a former reverend, his younger brother, former Minor Leagues baseball superstar Merrill (Joaquin Phoenix), who quit playing baseball after he beat the infamous strike-out record, and Graham's two children---his very serious twelve-year-old son, Morgan (Rory Culkin), and his adorable little six-year-old daughter, Bo (Abigail Breslin).

Merrill originally moved in with his older brother and his niece and nephew to help Graham recover from the death of his beloved wife, Colleen, six months ago when Ray Reddy, a veterinarian, fell asleep at the wheel at night and accidentally crashed Colleen into a nearby tree. Merrill also came to help be something of a second parent to the two children. Life out in the Pennsylvania countryside for the Hesses is relatively normal, until their dogs, Houdini and Isabelle---along with many others animals in the area---begin acting strange, violent. But the strangest of all the occurrences is the mysterious crop circles miraculously forming in their cornfields.

As Graham struggles to make his own relationship with Morgan stronger, as it has been failing ever since Colleen's tragic death, the skeptical part of the world struggles to come to terms with the fact that aliens are coming to this planet... and fast. While Morgan truly believes that the extraterrestrial are coming, convincing both Merrill and Bo with Bo's old baby monitory in which they pick of alien signals, and using a textbook written all about other life-forms, Graham desperately clings to the belief that this is just an extremely elaborate global hoax.

"Signs" is,undobtedly, one of the most misunderstood films in recent memory. It is also one of the most brilliantly conceived and executed films in many a year. The heart of the movie lies NOT with the outward ET invasion, but with the father's inward crisis of faith.
The film asks the the timeless and difficult question that philosophers and theologians have asked for centuries. Is the world is just a hodgepodge of chance and coincidence, and therefore, meaningless, or is the universe guided by some metaphysical force, implying a purpose to everything that happens. Are we on our own, at the mercy of a cruel and unjust universe, or is there someone looking out for our welfare?
The director uses the alien theme to create a suspeneseful scenario ala Hitchcock, but infuses it with a profound, underlying structure ala Ingmar Bergman. He also throws in mystical elements such as the healing and life giving power of water ala director Tom Tykwer (of "The Princess and the Warrior" fame). The many layers produce a complex and thought-provoking film that should not be missed.

After the huge success - critically and commercially - of "The Sixth Sense," director M. Night Shyamalan had a tough act to follow up. He failed with "Unbreakable," which I feel was an average film at best, but with his latest release, "Signs," he surpasses almost everyone's expectations in producing not only his best film to date, but definitely one of the highlights of 2002. As soon as a film receives huge success and makes hundreds of millions the world over, people are always there waiting to criticise. This fact stands the same with Signs; the film grossed a staggering $110 million in its first two weeks of release in the US alone, and in my opinion was well deserved. There aren't many films that deal with the subject of a sci-fi storyline, along with faith and religion, but Signs does - and to excellent effect...
Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He used to be a vicar, until six months ago when his wife, Colleen, tragically died in a car crash. He lost all faith in the church and abandoned his beliefs. He now lives with his brother, Merrill (Joaquin Phoenix) and his two children, Morgan (Rory Culkin) and Bo (Abigail Breslin). Graham awakes one morning to find huge crop circles in his cornfields. He soon discovers he is not alone in all this; many more crop circles are discovered all over the world. The spontaneous reaction from the majority of the world is that aliens have finally visited us. Graham begs to differ. He acts very laid-back in front of his children, but deep down he knows that something isn't right. He wants answers. And he knows they'll come...soon. Over the course of the next few days, all his beliefs, fears and wishes will come true - with some life-changing and shocking results.
The acting in Signs is absolutely first-rate.
