The Signal (2014)
Critic Consensus: Director William Eubank clearly has big ideas and an impressive level of technical expertise; unfortunately, The Signal fritters them away on a poorly constructed story.

Critic Reviews for The Signal
Sadly, this flubs the landing with a banal and credulity-stretching finale that feels like a bad Twilight Zone episode, but the first hour or so is terrific.
Pity the poor actors trapped in a cinematographer's world.
The more original and clever Eubank is aiming to be, with an ambitious conceit folding in biological experimentation, Area 51-style paranoia and X-Men superpowers, the hokier and more derivative he seems.
You spend a lot of the movie confused, but the great big reveals of its finale don't feel very shocking at all.
There's something welcome about a motion picture that doesn't hand out a dumbed-down resolution in a neatly wrapped package.
Audience Reviews for The Signal
However initially intriguing the mystery is, the only thing worse than a stupid movie that believes to be smart is a stupid movie that believes to be smart and insults its audience, and so it is just awfully confusing with a lot of stupid plot twists that don't make much sense.
Very Cool !
Slow burning, yet ultimately satisfying sci-fi/ mystery.
