Shyamalan + Aliens + GREAT Quality = Good Buy

A great alien invasion movie that i've loved / feared since i first saw it in the cinema when I was 12. Great dramatic suspense sci-fi movie, with great picture quality to go with it. Not the scariest film ... Might turn want to turn around when you hear a mexican kid looking down an ally though.

This is a good film but also it is very strange. Dont get me wrong alot of people will like this as do i but also the storeyline is very wierd and so is the setting of the film. It is set on a farm owned by farmer Mel Gibson. Then as the storey goes on there start experiencing strange things from crop circles to mysterious sounds. The part in the film where Mel Gibson and Jaquain Pheonix chase something into the filed is very chilling.

'another 'm.night shyamalan' riddle to unravel'
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 06/09/2009 22:04:32
'm.night shyamalan' does write some unusal material, 'signs' being no exception.
in this film a series of 'crop-circles' begin to alarm people, when sightings are filmed of strange beings along with 'lights' from u.f.o' craft hang over the sky's it becomes increasinly apparent an alien invasion is on the way ?
the film follows one family's expierience of events, former priest 'graham hess' along with his two children and brother.
as events and sightings around them become more intense they try to shut out what's happening around them.
'mel gibson' and 'joaqin phoenix' lead the cast list.
i enjoyed the film on each of the now three occasions i've seen it, starting at the cinema when first released.
the 'blu-ray' picture and sound quality is good.

Signs of a classic
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/11/2008 23:34:39
In my opinion this is a much richer film than Shyamalan's "The Sixth Sense" as you glean more and more from it from repeated viewings. Yes, the basic plot line is faintly ridiculous but the director is so adept at building a sense of dread and unease, and then unleashing some quick shock moments, that it's easy to overlook the silliness and enjoy this for just being a compelling, often amusing and really rather frightening film. What is often overlooked however is that it's also a very searching account of one man's loss of faith and of a small family trying to heal itself after an appalling tragedy.
It's a treat to have it on Blu-ray - some lovely deep dark blacks - but for my money, it's mainly to crank up the volume and revel in James Newton Howard's wondrous score.

I think I'm probably the first to review this on blu-ray. Having just watched this on my PS3 & my Samsung 37" tv, hooked up via HDMI to my Onkyo TX-SR605 Amp...what can I say! This is one of my favourite M. Night Shyamalan's movies outside of 'The Sixth Sense' & 'Unbreakable'. Aside from a few white speckles on the print, the transfer is excellent, with deep blacks & rich colours. The level of new detail visible is a revelation compared to the Standard dvd release. Apart from an outstanding video presentation, the 5.1. PCM Uncompressed soundtrack is terriffic, with deep booming bass and crystal clear dialogue. The enveloping surround sound keeps all the speakers active...checkout the nighttime scene in the cornfield....Awesome! Yes, there is a hint of grain visible & a few minor blemishes, but nothing to detract from my enjoyment of this superbly acted & very atmospheric & scary movie. This comes most Highly recommended on blu-ray.

M. Night Shyamalan best movie, no doubt in my mind, this is full on, near the end of the seat thriller, the way he did the movie just amazing, the movie is quiet yet chilling at the same time, times you don't expect stuff and it happens, totally will written and directed, a must see.
