SIGNS (Film Theatrical Release USA 2002)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Signs—another good film from M. Night Shyamalan—does not serve up a perfectly orchestrated piece of entertainment but does have a kind of a draw that is oddly intriguing so that one wants to see or know more about the movie. Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix are a perfect mix to cast as brothers. And, the children actors Rory Culkin and Abigail Breslin performed at a high level of professionalism. The film could have been a cult classic, but that unique charisma that often occurs in Shyamalan movies prevents that classification and moves it into a higher level for viewing.
