Suspense puro y duro con unas interpretaciones buenas de sus dos protagonistas masculinos.Aunque ahora personalmente me cuesta tomarla enserio debido a ver visto parodias de la misma

I remember to go watching this at the cinema back in 2002 when it was released, I was 12 years old and it scared me a lot! Then I re-watched it again one or two times more on tv, still at a younger age. Now re-watching it again and now that it doesn't scared me anymore, I could enjoy it better and it was a totally different experience.
At the beginning of the film the suspense is great! We can only see shadows and hear frightening sounds. That's on of the greatest aspects of the film, it recreates the fear that human beings have from the unknown.
I think this film is not a simple sci-fi film about aliens or about life in other planets but it is a film that puts you wondering about other questions like faith and what you are capable of doing for the ones you love. Are we alone in the world? Our life is based on luck? Or everything is just a coincidence? Or the signs were all there all of the time? I really love way the question is left for the characters to decide but also for us viewers.
Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix are both great and the two kids were absolutely amazing!
I think M. Night Shyamalan deserves more consideration for having written and directed this one, I guess some people have missed the whole point of it and consider it absurd.
I really enjoyed watching it again.
