I’m guessing the low ratings come from people who prefer movies like Cloverfield or from people who don’t appreciate quality sci-if films.

Three college kids find some information on the internet and head off into the dessert to find a little more, they come across an old abandoned house, start explore, a loud noise outside and they see one of their number abducted. They all wake up in a medical institution with no idea how, what or why, then things start to get stranger and stranger.
All along I was kept engrossed by the story, which basically revolves around the three kids trying to understand why they are where they are and why they are constantly under observation. The story unfolds at the perfect pace and you're only given just the right amount of information at each stage to keep you going and you're always left wanting just a little more and as each part of the story unfolds you get just a little bit more, it's a stunning achievement in story telling. You really have to be patient.
Sadly that's right up until the last 60 seconds of the film which I'm afraid just, "died on it's backside". After the amazing build up and all you go through I felt incredibly let down by such a lazy cop out at the end of the film and it completely ruined the story to be let down at the very end, there was so much more they could have done but someone at the studio obviously cut the poor writer and director off and told them to finish it that way.
Such a terrible shame to have worked so hard on getting into the story only to have it ruined at the end.
The premise of the tale is that three students are travelling across the USA - and, on their way, they decide to locate some unknown person who's been hacking into their computer (presumably to try and get them to stop). But the signal they trace leads only to a remote, desolate shack ... Then, suddenly, all three of them find themselves in a clinical facility - presumably government black ops - and are told that they've encountered an alien! With tests being undertaken on them, these three students are distraught and decide to escape. Unfortunately, things turn from bad to worse ...
It's well acted and well directed. So long as you enjoy vague plots and abstract storytelling, I do recommend it. As for me, it left me wanting more. However, I fully understand if it leaves some viewers utterly bored.
The result soon spirals into X-Files territory, with a sinister deserted shack morphing into a disconcerting 'research centre' where nothing is quite what it seems. It could be a typical govt cover-up conspiracy, or it could be something rather more surreal.
Full of plot twists and surprising revelations which kept us guessing and entertained for the whole time. Laurence Fishburn really lifts the whole thing with a subtle, quietly weird delivery.
Not a film to think about in too much detail afterwards because the logic doesn't entirely stand up to scrutiny. The point of some scenes eluded us, too (the cow in particular).
But overall it was rewarding to watch something a little bit different and challenging. Well executed, tight filming. good script.
This is a full-on science fiction film which holds out on releasing a lot of information until about two thirds of the way through. But you may guess the ending fairly early on and then you will pick up on other clues released by various characters along the way. The problem with this type of film is that the big reveal can't be delivered too early without spoiling the entire movie, then you find that there are so many unanswered questions and 'why didn't they just....' moments that the end becomes a bit of a disappointment. 'The Signal' falls into this category.
Nicely shot and well acted with the big name of Laurence Fishburne to lend cred, this is a quality product that will satisfy many science fiction fans. Just don't ask too many questions.
