Synopsis


Signs
Following the smash hit The Sixth Sense (1999) and the under-performing follow-up Unbreakable (2000), directing phenom M. Night Shyamalan returns to the summer box office landscape that served as the backdrop for his cinematic breakthrough. In Signs, another paranormal outing for the writer-director, Shyamalan explores the eerie implications of a 500-foot crop circle that mysteriously appears on the Bucks County, PA farm of reverend Graham Hess (Mel Gibson). As Hess and his family (Joaquin Phoenix, Rory Culkin, Abigail Breslin) try to take stock of what the sign means, and how its message incorporates into their faith, they start to get the feeling they are not alone in the fields behind their house. Shyamalan re-teams with producers Frank Marshall, Sam Mercer and Kathleen Kennedy, and produces the project in association with his Blinding Edge Pictures banner and Touchstone Pictures. ~ Derek Armstrong, Rovi

    Signs is a great sci-fi and suspense classic. When I first watched this film, I honestly did not expect the ending I got. Definitely not in a bad way though. Signs is the story of a father (Mel Gibson) who is trying to raise his family without his wife. After her death, his brother moved in to help out on the farm and with raising the kids. Life changes for him one morning when he wakes to the sounds of his daughters screams. Him and his brother run outside to discover giant crop circles in their corn. Was it the work of nearby teenage boys, or something more? Signs will make you laugh, cry, and realize what it is all about when it all comes together in the end.

    As with most M. Night Shyamalan films, you love it or dispise it, you're either a fan of his or you're not. Most people that diss his films just don't understand him or his movies. My wife and I are huge fans, we have all of his films. This is a great movie with two storylines that come together at the end, geniusly written with a great cast. If you're not a fan of his or don't understand his movies, then don't bother. But, if you're a fan, as we are, then I highly recommend this movie. It's right up there with Unbreakable and Sixth Sense. Also, some of his more recently underappreciated movies are Lady in the Water and The Happening. Only if you're a fan, will you appreciate these movies!

    It Could Happen!

    I prefer scary movies that are more realistic and that could actually happen over just blood and gore slasher films. But movies like this actually scare me more than those that are more overtly scary because it could actually happen! I also like that this movie makes you think about things like faith and your beliefs. A must-see, especially if you're a fan of M. Night Shyamalan.

    Good to come across this blu-ray and for excellent price point when I got it. Maybe a bit of a "forgotten" movie given all the plethora of movies over the years, but smartly done I say, well worth watching, a different kind of "alien" movie. It's like it could happen in your backyard, and weird how the movie "feels" way creepier and intense than it "looks".

    Shoddy work

    M. Night Shyamalan made a definite hit with The Sixth Sense (intriguing storyline and excellent acting). Unbreakable was not as much of a success suffering from a rather hasty ending. However, Signs hits rock bottom. Almost every scene is snatched directly from another film (Dawn of the Dead comes to mind for several scenes), and the script is horribly written. It makes no sense that an alien cannot escape a closet. Come on!

    I think that this is a great movie. It shows that a family eventhough they were struggling come together to defeat a common enemy. I though it was cool Graham Hess had lost his faith and regained it by the end of the movie. I thought that this movie was thoughly entertaining and kept me on the edge of my seat. This movie is a great movie to see.

    Being that the movie took place in Pennsylvania not far from where I live, it made this movie even better. Most of this directors movies take place in Pennsylvania which I like. Aside from that the movie is a different take on a movie about extraterrestrials. It's one of my favorite movies and I would recommend it.

    This was a good movie when it came out. I owned it on dvd for years, and then my son came. I ended up having to buy it again this time on BD. WOW was I impressed. the differences between the 2 shows that Blu-Ray is the way to go. the movie gets cleaned up and clear on BD, and becomes a MUST HAVE.
