Signs has some nail-bitingly tense moments, but inbetween them the film is slow-moving, dull, and annoyingly preachy. The twist at the end reveals the film’s entire premiss to be rather silly. Shyamalan clearly has some chops as a director, but he needs to stop wasting his time on vanity pieces like this.
I was itching to see this but missed it in the cinema and couldn’t wait for the DVD release. How disappointing. Not even good enough to say that ‘not a lot happened in an interesting way’. Pedestrian, cliched rubbish. Another 90 minutes of life wasted to Hollywood twaddle.
