The Signal (Beware there may be spoilers)
Well, if we would have been signaled to skip this one, we probably would have. Not to say there weren’t flashes of creativity, but mostly, just mis-mixed signals.
This sci-fi thriller follows 3 highly intelligent MIT students, Nic, Haley, and Jonah who start out on a road trip and end up with an out of this world adventure. After attempting to track down a hacker by the name of NOMAD, our star Nic, who is struggling with adapting to living with muscular dystrophy, wakes up in a sterile, hospital-like environment with no memory of how he got there. In comes Morpheus, we mean Damon, played by Laurence Fishburne. He continues to confuse everyone and provides little to no answers about what Nic is experiencing. But, added bonus, bionic legs! (so technically he doesn’t have 10 toes). A cross between The Matrix and The Cube, this movie has similarities of both where the leads were either kidnapped or ingested a blue pill to be transported to a floating (device) above earth. Why the “aliens” wanted to experiment with metal limbs and cows is still unknown. At least the aliens kept Morpheus’s face.
Most likely to win a fight against The Hulk: Jonah and the bionic arms vs. green super human strength – Jonah is definitely the winner here, if he were still alive.
Favorite old lady: Mirabelle, wasn’t she everyone’s favorite?! You know her from the Insidious movies and of course Magda from There’s Something About Mary
Most overused phrase: “Are you agitated?” Ummm yes, very.
Overall Grade: D+
