The Signal

Critics Consensus

Director William Eubank clearly has big ideas and an impressive level of technical expertise; unfortunately, The Signal fritters them away on a poorly constructed story.

Audience Reviews for The Signal

However initially intriguing the mystery is, the only thing worse than a stupid movie that believes to be smart is a stupid movie that believes to be smart and insults its audience, and so it is just awfully confusing with a lot of stupid plot twists that don't make much sense.

Slow burning, yet ultimately satisfying sci-fi/ mystery.

Damon: What I'm about to tell you Nic, you may find to be disturbing... The Signal is the kind of movie I want to support, despite finding some issues with it. It is an original science fiction story with mysterious aspects that unfold as the film goes along in ways that I found consistently engaging. The film ends up biting off a bit more than it can chew, but there is clear ambition in the filmmaking that I was happy to admire. I would not quite say that the style is placed over the substance, as it amounts more to needing to evolve as a screenwriter and a director, but I really dug what William Eubank was going for with this film. read the whole review at thecodeiszeek.com
