Signs (2002)
Movie Review by The Undertaker
04.11.03

Signs (2002) One of the more realistic alien invasion films I've ever seen. This one turned out to be a lot better than I would've imagined and lives up to everything you've heard and read. The way in which a global problem is distilled down to one family's fight for survival makes for some unsettling viewing once the shit hits the fan. Great to see a movie can be made that relies on story and subtlety rather than goofy computer FX. The creepiness builds from start to finish, I feel like this would be what a hostile invasion would actually be like. One of them Culkin kids does a fine job convincing his faith questioning Father that something's out there. Let's just hope Rory is luckier than his brother and doesn't get abducted by Michael Jackson, a far stranger being than any alien. Has anyone seen that poor kid since? Anyway, you'll never look at a cornfield the same way after watching Signs. Don't expect Alien, Predator, or Independence Day in terms of action or gore. Signs plays more like Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Day the Earth Stood Still, in some ways maybe a bit better. Mel Gibson's portrayal of a reverend whose faith has been crushed by the violent, accidental death of his wife is poignant.Again, the strength of this film lies in its subtle clues and glimpses of what we all suspect. Shadows, footsteps, a quick glimpse of a leg, all these small things keep you on the edge of your seat until it's over. The payoff doesn't disappoint and logically goes along with what has come before. The being we finally see looks amazing, it's simple, deadly, and exactly what we would all expect if we met one. I dare say that Hollywood has done something right? I'm actually trying to find things to pick at, it's not working. TV plays an important role in this also. Seeing how they cover the ever-growing menace makes up some great scenes here. The 1st sighting shown through acquired video footage is chilling. I'm not a huge sci-fi fan by any means, but I endorse Signs whole-heartedly. Hell, to think I almost didn't go see it 'cause of its mainstream intentions.
