Anyone seen it, is it any good ?

( Don't spoil the plot please, I still wanna go see it this weekend... )


p.s. If you wanna see another good movie that's in theaters: "The Butterfly Effect" . Simply awesome. Very Happy

I'll give it 2 Harry Potters out of 5.

Shyamalans worst film yet Sad

Signs was the first film that i found genuinely scary since i watched Alien at the age of 10. (which was a bloody long time ago!)

I think he's the victim of his own success - now everyone is expecting a clever twist (like the sixth sense)... unfortunately whilst the Village shows promise, the series of 'twists' at the end are in my view just too contrived.

Could have been A LOT better.

Its not the horror slasher movie that you expect, I think that all the hype that misleads you, you are not seeing the movie you think you are going to see. it is a good movie the advertising ruined it for me though

I saw this on opening night here.

It was the worst film I've seen this year, and I was extremely disappointed. Nothing like his previous films. :(

People that didn't like it, generally knew the ending plot twist.

I liked it - it had a few spots where the acting was beyond horrid, but not every movie can be perfect. Besides, even if the movie sucks, you still have sloppily buttered popcorn with tons of salt and yummy Dr. Pepper :)

or rootbeer. Rootbeer rocks!!

I thought The Village was really good actually as was Signs.

I guess I just have an affinity for Shamalayan's tales.

You just like cheese Joshua.

It was too tame and just as in Sixth Sense the omnious part ended way too early.

The point that the movie tries to make is a very good one, and quite pertinent in light of current events, but most people will miss that, anyway (as evidenced by current events.)

Nevertheless, I didn't appreciate the misleading advertising, so I give it 2 thumbs down. I hate liars Evil or Very Mad

Its an idea thats been done, just this time it drags on and gets so wierd you have trouble seeing that you know the story...until about halfway through when it becomes painfully clear you've just watched a clever story that was told in twice the time it should have been...

To thin an idea, a short story stretched into a novel...

This was absolutely not what I expected it to be when I saw all the trailers. About halfway I was starting to suspect what was going on and wasn't let down...

Still, I enjoyed watching it once I flicked a switch in my mind, turning of 'horror mode'.

The actors did very well with what they had (and it wasnt much).

I don't think it was a bad movie in itself, but once again Shayamalan marketed it as a thriller/horror type movie when in fact it was more like a drama. For that reason I didn't like it.

Signs was the same way, it really wasn't scary at all but the previews made it seem like it was. Shayamalan's bad for misleading previews I've found.

I liked it very much.

We didnt have the hype-up you seems to have gone thru here.
And I really liked the way in which the kind of double-twist was out in nearing the end (altho twist #1 is kinda easy to predict). But all in all, good drama, nice acting on the most part and a very good atmosphere to the whole story imo.

not much going for it atall. Some good films out atm - go see something else and get this from blockbuster when you're desperate.

I was actually planning to go see it at the cinema, and I rarely to there. I think I'm gonna wait and then rent it when there's nothing else to rent.

Posted - 2004.09.11 11:21:00 - [23]

I think it was one of the better films that I have been to see this year, but would agree that the initial advertising does not necessarily match the tone of the actual film.

A friend put it best though, that at the end of the film they felt like they had been told a story.

i guess were seeing different tastes here and what people like, but it was a poor movie, great actors with a poor script and story that is to easy to poke holes in, and as was mentioned before it was an old story told differently and there can be no excuse for that, for me it was mutton dressed like lamb.

If you want to see great drama with superb actors try Glengarry Glen Ross, old flick i know but if you want to see people in the film industry at their best, production side aswell as actors, this will blow you away.
