Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Individual sequences generate an eerie tension that's always deflated, creating a jarring stop-and-go rhythm, and the atmospheric trickery never strays beyond a lot of smoke and mirrors."
‑ Hank Sartin, Chicago Reader
"Shyamalan wants to be the metaphysical poet of movies, but he's dangerously close to becoming its O. Henry."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Excellent, but has some extreme tension and peril."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Crap circles."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"I come away from Signs exhilarated by Shyamalan's skill at keeping his audience guessing."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"Shyamalan is technically a superb film-maker, for all that he's picked up most of his tricks from Spielberg and Hitchcock."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The same old same old: dull and recycled, with no surprises."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Shyamalan is 0 for 3, giving us another incredible movie."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
"The one good thing about it is that it's over in one hour and 47 minutes. The bad thing is to think what a terrible waste it was of an hour and 47 minutes."
‑ Tony Medley, tonymedley.com
"A refreshing summer movie."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"The movie is almost completely lacking in suspense, surprise and consistent emotional conviction."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"An anti-Independence Day, a cousin of Close Encounters, but most of all, a well-modulated, dread-laden, faith-based mystery. [Blu-Ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"M. Night Shyamalan's Signs is Close Encounters of the Corny Kind."
‑ James Verniere, Boston Herald
"A gripping and well-made thriller that preserves Shyamalan's winning streak and shows us, as all the best films do, a world that we're familiar with and believe in, and yet we've never seen, and by which we're endlessly fascinated."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, FilmStew.com
