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.
So, where does the movie Signs fit in? Well, it's not quite as good as The Sixth Sense or Unbreakable, but it's not quite as bad as The Happening or The Village or Lady in the Water. It's kind of in the middle. So you watch Signs, and you're like, "Hey, that wasn't... that wasn't as good as the first two. I mean, like, every director has a movie that's not as good as the other ones. But I'm okay with that, maybe their next one will be better." This feels so unbalanced now; the first two movies had this glorification before I started insulting them, but there's really not that much good about this movie at all. Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix did well to play their characters. However, the child actors did not hold up and they were a sore pot for me when watching this movie. There's just so much wrong with this movie, like the fact that aliens invaded a planet with the EXACT liquid compound that covers more than 90% of the earth that could kill them on contact AND did it naked. I don't even feel like talking about all of it. Overall, Not as good as the other ones.
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
