Although I'm still not exactly certain what was going on, The Signal is the kind of smart sci-fi that is too often overlooked. Three friends on a road trip find themselves tracking a mysterious hacker only to find themselves part of an experiment - but figuring out whose running the show is just the beginning. This one will leave you guessing until the conclusion. Even though I think there are holes you can poke through this one, the concept is novel and the story is intriguing. Take a chance on this one.

The directing offers some surface value through the use of striking visuals and slo-mo. The sci-fi elements are underplayed and the mystery plot is adequate. I was interested in the beginning. It plods along through the middle with only a tiny amount of information ever told. This would've worked as decent buildup, but the third act 'escape' is just as slow and it leads to a slightly surprising, yet underwhelming finale.

A brilliant and stunning SF



I had no idea what this film was about when I started watching it. Looking at the movie poster, you can assume it has something to do with SF. But I didn't expect it to be such a brilliant film. Compared with other great well known SciFi's, "The Signal" is more of a modest movie. This will probably also be due to the small budget (4 Million Dollars). But despite this small budget, this magnificent indie has some very successful moments with hallucinatory special effects.

Sometimes you watch a movie and you are wondering all the time what's actually going on. Eventually I had the same feeling as Nic (Brenton Thwaites) : groping in the dark, anxiously looking for the truth and feeling desperate. Nic was on its way to California, together with his girlfriend Haley (Olivia Co...
