Signs is a unique take on the existence of extra terrestrials visiting Earth and despite its obvious shortfalls turns out to be a decent and enjoyable film.
Mel Gibson plays a father of two and ex man of the cloth who has lost his faith in God. After crop circles appear in his field and subsequently, around the World
it becomes obvious that we may not be alone.
While the acting leaves a lot to be desired, the storyline more than makes up for it. A slow first half is more than made up for once the little (or not so little
in this case) green men turn up to do whatever it is they wanted. Clever and well thought out, Signs will grip you until the very end and thankfully explains what is going on (unlike another Alien invasion film I can think
of starring Tom Cruise), it makes for a decent watch.
