The ending of Signs

The whole water melts the aliens was just stupid. 

I gotta agree. There is a substance that melts their skin, so they go to a planet where 2/3 of the surface is covered in it, as well as it regularly falling out of the sky, not to mention an atmosphere with giant clouds of it virtually everywhere. Those guys just weren't that bright, were they?

Reminds me of a theory that the Martians from War of the Worlds were actually the homicidal moronic rejects of Mars exiled from the planet, not the head of a true invasion force.

I found Signs to be one of the most idiotic film endeavors I've ever been through.  I keep promising myself that I have to write a scathing review of it but just can't get up the will power to watch it again.  For me, the movie was over when they first showed the aliens on the newscast.  The image just reminded me too much of the famous Bigfoot footage.

Really?  That MAKES the movie some people, myself included.  I found the ending supremely satisfying.  Just a little surprising that it ruined it for you.

I agree, the ending put it over the top for me.  Even though I saw it coming, I thought it the movie could end in no other way and I was happy they had the courage to do it.  But to each his own.

That scene is one of the few scenes that worked for me'. I always felt that when/if that thing happens for real, it won't be a perfectly lit/focused shot with an entity cheesing up to the camera, it'll be caught by an amateur under less than ideal conditions.

Yep, I seem to be in the minority on this one, but that's how I felt.

I liked Signs the first time I saw it, other than the water-melting.  They deside to attack PA in summer where the humitiy is like 90%?  How did they even get out of their craft?  Had the characters said something about it being an over abundance of some mineral in the water (that Beau could taste and no one else could and said she should be able to either), that would have made some sense.  But how do aliens keep slaves that need large quantities of water daily?  They'd be giving the humans the very thing they need to revolt!

But, once you start examining everything, none of it makes sense.  If this is some intergalactic invasion by "intelligent" life forms, surely they have the discipline and the smarts to not be walking around where they can be seen.  I loved the corn field chase where you see the alien's leg and the alien walking out on camera the first time I saw it...but then I thought, "what superior invading force would let themselves be seen?"

Oops, we forgot to turn on the cloaking device before coming into earth's atmosphere - better switch that on now and hope there aren't any flying things that might run into our craft.

Aliens so strong they can outrun decently athletic men and jump onto farmhouse roofs, but they can't break a pantry door?  Given a few good shoulder rushes, I'd have been out of the pantry in a couple minutes.  Too close to really shoulder rush it?  The get your back against the wall and leg press it/kick it.  Those things are generally hollow and common household hinges/door locks aren't meant to withstand much force!

And the cellar door?  The aliens fly across space on a raiding mission and bring nothing that can break through an old wooden door help closed with a pickaxe?  They could have gone to Mel Gibson's barn and gotten an ax - he's a farmer: he's got at least one ax in a woodshed somewhere!

Like I said - enjoyed it the first time.  Upon any analysis, the whole thing becomes laughable.

Here's my outlook on it: People assume that some UNKNOWN forces, from an UNKNOWN place, with UNKNOWN intentions, would do things exactly how WE would do them, therefor the flaw; applying the "why didn't they" to their methods. This kind of movie is made for the "maybe they. .. " that comes right after the "why didn't they". People assume the aliens seen are the invading race, , I really don't think so, I think they are the WEAPON used by the invading party. There's a big difference between jumping high, running fast, and being able to break down a door. The aliens look fragile to me, take a look at Olympic runners and high-jumpers, and tell me they're built in a way that leads you to believe they can knock down doors. Speed and jumping ability does not automatically mean strength. It doesn't take much thought to see the many paths around the "can fly a spacecraft but can't operate a doorknob". Personally, I think the intentions are that what we see are drones, designed or intended to kill people/do whatever, then die off shortly thereafter. They obviously aren't intelligent enough to fly a spacecraft, and they have a means for suppressing humans without the need for that much brute force. We never saw the alien try brute force on the door and fail, I think it just wasn't intelligent enough to know what to do there, which supports the idea they are drones. Also, in regards to the cloaking device: the word 'malfunction' comes to mind, simply as I see it.

Don't get me wrong, the movie generally sucks, but there's plenty of room to dally around without hopelessly falling through the plot holes.

You sir have brought up more great points about M. Knight Smamalamadingdong's cinematic travesty.   One other thing I'd like to add.  A seven foot alien needs to gas people to hurt them.  M. Knight has become a parody on to himself.

I think was the repeated usage of the same shark attack or when the sharks flee scenes over and over again that ruined Shark Swarm for me.

Your drone aspect does add a certain layer to the idea; that the alien race would send stupid drones down does make sense, and even hits Darksider's point about the gas.  The drones might not be designed to be strong enough to subdue humans without the gas.  Of course, for durability, that alien took a few good hits from that bat, and when you have someone known for being a homerun hitter, one good swing would take out most people.

But running (fast sprints as the alien did around the house) and jumping are both explosive force leg work, rather then marathon running.  Most sprinters/jumpers have pretty large quads particular in comparison to their size (which is kept lighter).  I would think anyone who is six feet tall and can jump onto a house roof would be able to take out a pantry door.  You are right; they may not have the bulk to batter it down, but they should have the leg strength to kick in a door.

So I guess it really must come down to: the smart aliens sent the already conqured, water-toxic, stupid, gassy aliens.  At least there is a way for it to make sense!
