The result is a film that sags between its night sequences. The only comparison I can think of is a "Jaws" without a story between shark attacks.

What starts off as a potentially incredibly twisting mystery becomes simply a monster chase film.

Shyamalan starts off with [an] existing mystery, but he can't solve it.

It's fair to speculate whether Shyamalan's persistence in replicating the otherworldly formula of The Sixth Sense might not be a futile and self-defeating exercise.

Mr. Shayamalan is a gifted writer and filmmaker. He definitely has more great films in his future. However, he may need to take a step away from the paranormal thriller.

If you go into the theater expecting a scary, action-packed chiller, you might soon be looking for a sign. An EXIT sign, that is.

Signs will have its admirers since its methodic nature suggests there's something profound going on beneath the surface. There really isn't though.

... Shyamalan's style is surprisingly graceless, as if paralyzed by a smothering sense of purpose...

It's a credit to the actors that this nonsensical thriller/sci-fi story comes off as reasonably well as it does.

If Shyamalan directed Jaws, the film would be about Sheriff Brody's fear of the water.

Ultimately, Signs -- as original, interesting and ambitious as it is -- is a post-9/11 movie of possibly the most dubious sort.

Shyamalan's by-now trademark spookiness is starting to play like a CD consciously designed to duplicate the success of an album that sold 10 million copies.

Shyamalan fuses the fictional evidence of his extraterrestrials with the presumed righteousness of God in a way that will make no sense to anyone who has ever questioned either.

Maybe I feel let down because I'd appreciate someone presenting a halfway credible explanation for the crop circles and this does nothing more than to drain away some of their fascination in a commercially successful maneuver to exploit.

Shyamalan apparently wants or needs to be compared favorably or even neutrally to Alfred Hitchcock, but in this regard, he's doomed to fail.
