Movie Review: The Signal
Justin Morales wrote this review 2 years and 8 months ago
William Eubank made his directorial début with the 2011 sci-fi film Love, which received bittersweet reviews. Now Eubank is back as a director with another sci-fi film The Signal, but this time he was able to do something he wasn’t able to do for Love, get a big name actor like Laurence Fishburne in his cast. Paired with Eubank's skills in cinematography and Fishburne's glorious acting history, can The Signal be the hit Eubank has been aiming for?
Intrigued by reports that a mysterious hacker named Nomad has breached MIT's advanced security system and exposed its flaws, freshmen Nic (Brenton Thwaities) and Jonah (Beau Knapp) hopped in a car with Nick's girlfriend Hailey (Olivia Cooke), and attempted to track down the elusive computer genius. Eventually, a trail of clues leads the three students deep into the Nevada desert. There, they finally come face-to-face with Nomad just before everything goes black. Later, regaining consciousness in a high-security government facility, a confused Nic quickly finds that the worst is yet to come as Damon (Laurence Fishburne) awaits him while Nic regains consciousness.
+ Plot twists Cons: - Weak script which did not give the actors enough to shine from
- Long list of unanswered questions http://iheardthatmoviewas.blogspot.com/2014/06/movie-review-signal-u-agitated.html
