Excellent if seen from certain angles
I have seen this movie and I liked it. I find this movie a pioneer in dealing with belief in god -as an orthodox issue- through science fiction -as a relatively modern subject- which is what I liked, and that is what some people missed about this movie as they looked at it as is, they didn't read what is between the lines, they ignored that the science fiction was only a means of discussing the orthodox issue of belief. The title could be seen as signs from god instead of signs from the aliens -as suggested by the poster- Starting from the beginning of the movie till its end M. Night Shyamalan was giving hints that everything happens for a reason, that God doesn't just shuffle events or fates randomly. I think that Shyamalan is trying to prove that all the daily events that we either brag or complain about is only a small part of a bigger thing and somehow I think that this is the key to get a better understanding of this movie and that is what I liked about it. I found Shyamalan was a little bit Cartesian in the process of proving the viability of belief in God.
On the other hand, judging this movie on strictly science fiction bases I actually found it hilarious. First of all, the idea of crop signs saying attack or land here or whatever -as suggested by Scary movie 3- is a bit stupid. If I had the technology to travel through the universe would I need landing signs designed on such a "mark your territory" approach? Secondly, the idea of aliens, who by the way can be "erased" by water, invading a planet that is 70% covered by water is amazingly idiotic. Among the things that I also disliked about this movie was the look of the aliens. It was old-fashioned and outdated. As a matter of fact it was the standard issue alien of the 60's brought back to the new millennium, but this could be explained by Shyamalan's vague tendency of unfocusing on the fiction part, rather, making it a means of discussing belief or faith. Finally, I think creating such a controversial movie could be one of the things that contributed to its success.
A revolutionary masterpiece by UbiSoft
This is probably one of the best computer games ever. The dynamic environments, the sounds, the brilliant music by Stuart Chatwood, the awesome visual effects, and the rich dramatic story loaded with surprises all integrate to create on of the finest gaming experiences ever. The creativity of this game shows in the vast variety of the enemies, weapons, not to mention the new brilliant fighting system. What also makes this game unique is the possibility of finishing it in two different scenarios (To fight the empress or the Dahaka) which I think is new to the gaming world. The soundtrack is great and showed some variation from that of Sands of Time especially in the integration heavy metal. I can't wait to the the sequel of this game.
Although the combats, enemies, weapons and environment elements are far more dynamic and variable than those in Sands of Time, I kind of prefer the atmosphere of Sands of Time especially the oriental music, which is more prevailing, the details of the Sultan's palace, and the costumes which seem more in line with the Persian style. Overall, this game is a revolution in the gaming world that redefines the genre of action games and is not to be missed by action lovers.
