      Joshua Rothkopf In These Times Signs is a tense experience; even the opening credits lunge at your throat with orchestral shrieks. It may one day reveal itself as a minor classic, a new Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the manufactured scare of its day. Mar 16, 2020 Full Review Namrata Joshi Outlook It's the content that's to blame. Signs works on a confused storyboard. What's Shyamalan trying to say anyways? Nothing, or rather a bit too much. Rated: 2/4 Jan 3, 2019 Full Review Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com Signs was the film that sparked the desire that led to the purchase of a camera, many short films, and a love of movies that hasn't left me to this day. Rated: A+ Apr 17, 2015 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Manages to capture the inherent unease of an alien invasion in frightening ways, while also injecting plenty of heart into the story. Rated: 4/5 Sep 20, 2023 Full Review Eric Langberg The Spool Signs knows what it's like to witness the end of the world on television and the twisted catharsis that comes with the world not actually ending. Feb 24, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault Shyamalan takes his time, drawing out the exquisite silences, the small trembling portents of terror. Rated: B Sep 17, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Robert M This film puts me through every emotion I can muster. I laugh, I cry, I fear, I love. Wow! I mean this is one of my top 5 movies of all time. Great work to the entire crew. I love how Mels Character has questioned his faith and his journey throughout this story led him all the way back to his faith even in the midst of an alien invasion. I believe in Miracles baby. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review bordgard1 T Formulaic, unoriginal, poorly conceived, and syrupy. Its real purpose is to champion belief not in aliens, but in religious "miracles." Ergo, Mel Gibson’s involvement. Not only does the film provide him a platform to preach to the viewers, he even gets to do so while sporting a priest’s collar. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/13/24 Full Review Shad A A great movie always a solid watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/13/24 Full Review Carmen B A refreshingly grounded story about a family and one man’s faith crisis. Extremely heartfelt, with beautiful yet understated cinematography. Some people complain about the twist, but I never viewed it as a twist at all, this movie doesn’t have one. There isn’t supposed to be a gotcha moment, just an emotionally cathartic ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/01/24 Full Review Lucas t I love this movie ever since I watched it as a child I've adored it, Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix are very good in this movie. Definitely a must watch for anyone. 9.2/10. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/31/24 Full Review Audience Member This film was so wonderfully done. I absolutely love this movie. The actors are phenomenal in this. M Night Shyamalan knocks it out of the park. My favorite movie of his. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/29/24 Full Review Read all reviews
