Thoughts on First Signal
Thoughts – First Signal brings us the discussion-based idea behind finding a signal not from our world, showing how the world leaders could come together to bring their own ideas on how to deal with the signal. The clear message going into this one, is that we don’t end up seeing any type of action, this is purely a discussion-based film, which could easily be a turn off for some people. This offers up the ideas of what could happen, but the low to micro budget holds back most of this film from reaching the full potential, it does however have a satisfying conclusion behind the story.
Final Thoughts – First Signal is an interesting discussion about what could happen with an unknown signal coming to Earth.
