The Signal back to product details

Coming in Strong -- then Weak

THE SIGNAL is actually three joined-at-the-plot movies directed by three different guys. Two of them are crackerjack (#1 is scary/creepy, #2 surprisingly funny) but the third is so-so. Unfortunately the best comes first, near-best is second and the finale pretty much sucks. This is a shame, really, because the totality offers some excellent acting, writing/direction that ranges from truly scary to charming/deadpan/weird, and the visuals are usually appropriate and often much more. I'd suggest watching the three sections in reverse order but you'll want closure (or at least to learn what, in this case, closure means) so I'm afraid that you must watch in order. And be disappointed.

Best social commentary

This was one of the best films I saw last year hands down!!!!! Best social commentary on technology I've seen in years. While it has it's brutal moments, we are not far off and in some areas it's already happening. This film has stayed with me since.

Sounds like a rip-off of Stephen King

I haven't seen this yet so I'll update my rating when I do. But sounds like a rip-off of Stephen Kings book "Cell" which is about a strange signal sent over cell phones that makes people go crazy. King's book is due out as a movie in 2009 directed by Eli Roth (Hostel).
