  • Editorial Reviews

    Academy Award nominee Laurence Fishburne, Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke and Beau Knapp star in this mind-bending and suspenseful sci-fi thriller. Nic (Thwaites), his girlfriend, Haley (Cooke), and his buddy, Jonah (Knapp), take an unexpected detour from an idyllic cross-country road trip when they are contacted by a mysterious hacker who has gained entry into MIT's secured network. But after a rendezvous in an eerily remote area goes awry, Nic wakes to a living nightmare in an isolation unit. Interrogated by Dr. Wallace Damon (Fishburne), Nic soon realizes that the only way to decipher the past…is to escape the present. Critics rave "had Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch made a movie together, it might have looked something like The Signal." – Scott Bowles, USA Today

    Good acting and a great plot that makes you think long after the movie ends.
    S. Redding
    Plot is confusing, dialogues are unclear, and main premise could be believable but story lines failed to tie them together because they were very fragmented.
    TXmanchild
    This movie was so stupid that I HATE it and wish I could get that wasted time in my life back.

    Format: Blu-ray
    I understand i cannot say anything about the blu-ray since it hasn't been released yet, but i can talk about the movie.

    The Signal, co-written and directed by William Eubank (Angels & Airwaves' Love), tells the story of three friends on a road trip to California who are also tracking a hacker named NOMAD, who nearly got them expelled from MIT. But, when they track him down to the middle of nowhere in Nevada, the three are separated and attacked by an unseen force. When Nick (Brendan Thwaites) wakes up in a facility being questioned by a man, Dr. Wallace Damon, Nick does whatever he can to escape the facility and find his friends.

    The Signal is a very under-appreciated sci-fi thriller, and i honestly don't know why. Mr. Eubank's direction is truly superb, and is a kind-of mix between Stanley Kubrick, Chris Carter, and even Christopher Nolan or Wally Pfister. The way he captures in-your-face moments, as well as beautifully intense, slow-motion action scenes is just incredible (Michael Bay, take notes). The script, while not the best part of the film, is still wonderful in its own way. The non-linear story-telling (if you ask me) works best for the film, how at pivotal moments for the characters we see flashbacks that represent an old and current obstacle, or simply cherished moments long past. Plus, the characters seemed like real people, real college students in over their heads. While i loved Brendan Thwaites as Nick, it was Beau Knapp as Jonah who stole the show towards the end, with his tear-jerking performance as the best friend. The visual effects were spectacular, and make me think of District 9, and how it had a huge impact inspiring other lower budgeted films that boast brilliant effects with masterful story-telling. The acting was good overall, but no award-winners.

    I'm glad I ended up ignoring the poor reviews because they couldn't be more wrong. This was a really interesting, intelligent and original sci-fi movie. I honestly have no idea why so many reviewers are confused since everything is explained quite clearly in the end. Yes, it keeps you guessing because the big reveal doesn't happen until the last minute or so, but if you're in "a fog" the whole time then you aren't paying much attention to what's going on. I'd explain the plot, but that would ruin the fun. (And yes, part of the fun is NOT knowing everything until the end.)

    All I'll give away is that the three friends are subjects in an experiment - that should be pretty obvious to anyone from an early point in the movie. Just what the experiment is and who is performing it is what you have to wait until the end to find out. But it's not like it's some mysterious arthouse flick with pretty shots of landscapes that don't mean anything. The movie gives you one puzzle piece after another and it's not until you have all the pieces that you see the big picture. The plot makes sense, the pacing is good and it's shot beautifully.

    If you get impatient when you have to wait for answers, like to be spoon fed everything and/or need to see things blowing up all the time then avoid this. (Not that there is no action, but it comes late.) If you like intelligent sci-fi, then you'll like this. It's one of the best sci-fi movies to come out in recent years.

    In spite of a slow start, this movie had some potential, once the characters have their uncanny encounter in the desert. Then it all starts going downhill as the movie hits you with one weird thing after another, with nothing to connect them or suggest some larger whole that they could be part of. Each scene is full of cool strangeness, but they keep raising more and more unanswered questions, and the movie itself seems undecided about what is really going on, pointing in one direction, then another, and finally just giving up and ending on a really bizarre FX shot that hangs a huge question mark over the whole deal. This isn't a story - this is bits of stories scattered about like jigsaw pieces, and maybe they all fit together, but maybe not, and I personally didn't have enough faith left in the film after that last reveal to go back and waste time on the pieces scattered about.

    This movie could have been good, but it turned out as disorganized junk. If you liked the grab bag of plot threads and plot holes that was Prometheus, then you'd probably enjoy this one too. Otherwise, give it a miss - there's better stuff out there.

    Having said that, I have to give this movie at least one credit - it was NOT recycling the same old crap and it was not just a bunch of eyecandy. If it'd had some kind of unifying narrative, even if it kept the answers a secret, it could have been a contender :(

    This movie started off slow, but once the main characters encountered...whatever they encountered (trying not to spoil) things seemed to get going. Then it all descended into weird for the sake of weird, with lots of questions and no real answers, and the big reveal at the end was just a big "What the hell did I just watch?" for me.

    I have to admit that the acting was very good, and it was suspenseful as well; but......I honestly have no clue what this movie was about. In fact if anyone else knows, I would appreciate being enlightened.
