It's contaminated. That's what pint-sized Bo (Abigail Breslin) says about every glass of water that she tries to drink, then rejects. This is just one in a long list of strange occurrences that are changing the lives of the Hess family. Things … see full wiki

The Signs are there now are you whilling to listen to them?....
For over 1,000 years stories of beings from another world have been told to countless generations through writing and art. But the real question is it true? Or is it all an elaborate hoax, a fairytale to put us to sleep at night or give us something to watch? Whether they are real or not has always been in question and truthfully we may never know the answer to our constant questions. But after almost 60 years of films that exploit and tell of alien invasion or aliens visiting our world and trying …

Very nicely put together. Neat foreshadowing, fun insanity easing the tension, some pretty good scares, and a thought-provoking conclusion.

Effective at surprising the audience and setting up it's premise. It's too bad that the payoff involves some real lapses in logic. Do not watch in the dark OR with a good sound system. Do one or the other.

Brilliant, funny, poignant, scary and thought-provoking. Take a quick look---and watch it all the way through...by yourself, in the dark!

Signs
There are certain movies that are creepy beyond belief, but Signs still falls into my "bedtime movie" category from the overall feeling of comfort it somehow gives me, in spite of the shivers it produces. To me, I found it an excellent presentation of Ying and Yang, the balance of life, that for everything there is a purpose; even the most horrid of life's tragedies could be a sign of better things to come.     This is a beautiful story of family love and everyday life interrupted …

M.Night Shyamalan seems to be making quite a name for himself in the Hollywood sphere and is well on his way to becoming one of the greatest directors in history.  "Signs" is a story about a fractured family's reponse to a bunch of mysterious crop circles that begin to enclose their small farm-house in a remote village on the outskirts of Philadelphia. The film progresses as crop circles begin to appear all across the world, spreading mass panic amongst the populations and indicating an extra-terrestrial …

M. Night Shyamalan (originally: Manoj Nelliyattu Shyamalan) can now be held responsible for creating one of the best movies I have ever seen.     I loved every instant, of every second, of every minute of both hours of Sign's. Once I saw Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall's "John Handcock" in the opening credits I knew it was going to be special. (They also executive produced "The Sixth Sense" for Shyamalan) Not only was Sign's backed by these Spielbergian's, it was brought …

M. Night Shyamalan has been hailed as the next Spielberg with such writing/directing/producing credits as The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs & his new venture, The Village, and rightly so, in my humble opinion. This film is generally unlike The Sixth Sense & Unbreakable. That is precisely why Signs received mixed reviews from critics at the box office. Mel Gibson stars as the newly widowed ex-reverend/father Graham Ness. Along with his younger, ex-baseball hero brother, Merrill (Joaquin Phoenix) …

I have to agree with a fellow reviewer that the so-called professional reviewer is wrong in calling this a "B" movie. "Signs" plays more with your mind and, to an extent, your faith better than most of the schlock that is put out these days. This film is very intelligent and very, very creepy. It probes your mind both spiritually(with Gibson's character) and mentally(with the use of the alien invasion). One of the creepiest moments in this film is when the television report reveals a "surprise" …

M. Night Shyamalan has great ideas and an interesting mind for stories that push the edge as he so well demonstrated in 'The Sixth Sense'. Unfortunately in this very very slow movie his story gets overshadowed with the very usual and trite "creatures from outer space" look. One keeps wondering why these fears of extraterrestrial invasion are treated like all the other Hollywood horror movies with very similar storylines - that though these visitors are of superior intelligence they seem totally …

Yea i had a change of thought, at first i was indifferent about this movei, then i liked it, now im like, what was it about really. The aliens seem dumb and weak here, one gets caught in a kitchen pantry by some chicken of a guy, the other one doesnt even put up a fight, i mean come, on, bring on the mean green aliens! boring..id would make it a promise to myself -never to watch this again.

I'll skip plot summaries, since I think most people know this is about an alien invasion. The plot in and of itself is nothing special...it's the way the story is told that makes it fun.Director Shymalan really shows us the effectiveness of the "less is more" idea. Throughout most of the movie, he doesn an incredible job of building up a sense of dread. We spend much of the movie on the edge of our seats, waiting for something horrible to happen. There are many wonderful moments when we can almost …

Pros: Great thrills, acting and story.     Cons: None     The Bottom Line: A fantastic thriller that does not rely on the old standbys.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. Faith is a precarious thing. It is something that is different things to different people, and is manifested by people in many ways. There are those that base their lives upon faith and those who have little left. One such person …
