Signs / Ransom
Not yet reviewed.
After captivating audiences with The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, writer/director M. Night Shyamalan created his next mind-blowing movie event: Signs. Signs is the gripping story of an ordinary family as they encounter the possibility that Earth is being invaded by creatures from another planet. When Graham Hess (Mel Gibson) and his family awaken to find a 500-foot crop circle in their backyard, they're told extraterrestrials are responsible. As they watch with growing dread, news reports tell of similar "signs" suddenly appearing all over the world!
A stunning performance by Mel Gibson (Braveheart) adds to the heart-pounding intensity of Ransom - the explosive thriller that critics called one of the best films of 1996. It's a parent's worst nightmare for business tycoon Tom Mullen (Gibson) as he gazes at a picture of his kidnapped son helplessly bound and gagged. To get his boy back, Mullen and his wife (Rene Russo) agree to deliver a multimillion-dollar ransom to the kidnappers. But after the exchange erupts in a hail of gunfire, Mullen takes one final risk to ensure his child's safety and goes on national television with a shocking proposal. It's a gamble that could cost him his marriage... as well as the life of his son! Acclaimed director Ron Howard (Apollo 13) delivers one surprising plot twist after another in a riveting action thriller that will leave you breathless.
