M. Night Shyamalan had already written and directed the oh-so-cool "Sixth Sense" and the well done "Unbreakable." Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix were set to co-star. M. Night was back as writer and director. The trailers were full of suspense, and left you wanting more. Yeah, the signs were all in place for a winner.
But you never know.
I saw "Signs" yesterday and it's been on my mind constantly since. The story does involve aliens.. but probably not in the way that you're expecting. It's as much about family, redemption, and faith as it is aliens... and it is scary... very scary at times! But it will also make you laugh, move you to the verge of tears, and more than likely leave you feeling very happy for seeing it.
This is my favorite movie of the year thus far. It rates a solid "A." I think you'll enjoy it to because...
... the signs are all there!
