Format: DVD
With M. Night Shyamalan's third major studio release as director, he once again proved that he may just be heir to the Hitchcock throne of suspense. Do not think I am comparing him to the level of Hitchcock as a film maker, because Shyamalan still has a long way to go to achieve that goal. However, of the film makers today you'd be hard pressed to find a director who could produce such a suspenseful film on such minimalist methods.

Hollywood's mentality has long been the bigger the explosion the bigger the return, and in an age of special effects and showing off what they can do on the computer (take note, George Lucas), Shyamalan bypassed all that and harkened back to a time when the most important thing was the story. Shyamalan constructed the film around the history and idiosyncracies of the family using everyday things such as half-filled glasses, a baby monitor, and other like things. When Spielberg directed Jaws, he learned that by not showing the shark that much made the film much more effective (admittedly, this realisation came to be because JAWS was such a production disastor). In a time when we have the specials effects to envision anything you could possibly dream, this film aptly illustrates that just because you have the technology it doesn't mean you have to use it to tell a good story. The old adage of "less is more" fits wonderfully here. Another wonderful example that incorporates technology without sacrificing the story or characters is Minority Report.

What is so remarkable about Signs' plot? It's the fact that the characters exist in their own right and never feel like just plot devices or mouthpieces. Mel Gibson plays an apostate preacher who suddenly has to handle the fact that crop circles are appearing in his corn field.

"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.

"Signs" is M. Night Shyamalan's best movie, and one of my favorite suspense films. It is also so ridiculously underrated! Many people hate it because of its religious aspects, its ending, and it wasn't what they had expected. Come on people! This film isn't about big explosions or special effects. It's about characters that you come to know and care about. That is what makes it a great movie. Great movies are about characters, NOT special effects. Anyway, what I love about this film is the humor that comes from the supporting characters, and it has a sweet and beautiful little girl in it. Abigail Breslin, as Bo Hess, is the kind of little girl you'd love to have as your own. She's so adorable and hilarious, and she pulled my heartstrings at the right moments. I hope she makes more films in the future.

Quickly: disapointing, not that scary.

Summary: Priest loses wife, then loses faith and is left raising 2 kids with the help of his brother. Creepy things happen, it ends up it's aliens, they all hide, then fight one alien and learn that there reall is a god.

The Good: I actually liked the little girl, she was just creepy enough and not annoying. I thought Gibson did a great job playing the lost father. I loved the fact that this movie used The Hidden Fortress plot device. It told the story from the eyes of its lowest characters. A huge war is going on and instead of seeing the war we see 4 people watching the news about the War. The alien was rather cool once you got to it, I loved the camo effect.

The Bad: It just wasn't really that scary or clever. I expected way more from this (as I am pretty sure everyone else did when it came out). There was no plot twist at the end, that made me re-think the whole movie. There wasn't really even a 'jump' worthy cheap scare. It just didn't have what I expected in it.

The Ugly: Hidding in a boarded up house and then in a celler is the stuff of Zombie movies not Alien Invasion movies. The movie builds up so much suspense of the coming invasion, and we get to see people fumbling around in the dark and one alien.

Overall: this was pretty disapointing. Amusingly we owned this for a few years, and haven't watched it since most of our DVD watching starts during dinner. We didn't want to watch a horror while eating. Well we could have watched this one. It's just not scary. Not being scary I at least expected some big revalation at the end that made you think, a "What he was a Ghost?!?" moment. Technically there was one, but it just didn't work for me.
