If you haven't seen it, you won't miss out.
11 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

First time I saw this movie as it was pretty new. Back then I didn't like it much and the only thing I remembered was, that it was pretty boring to watch. Now I thought of giving it a second chance. But still Signs doesn't get me at all. The acting and especially the dialogues are weird and during most of the time nothing happens in this movie. Graham and Merrill just appear a little dumb, but the way they treat the two children on the other hand is presented very heart warming. Yes, at the end we see one of the aliens, but again, it seems like this movie was not really trying to provoke a deeper reaction from the audience. Signs is well shot, but the story lacks excitement and the main characters, who are usually great actors, seem totally out of place in this one. If you haven't seen it, you won't miss out.
