Bird Box (2018)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Bird Box never quite reaches its intriguing potential, but strong acting and an effectively chilly mood offer intermittently creepy compensation.

Movie Info

When a mysterious force decimates the world's population, only one thing is certain: if you see it, you take your life. Facing the unknown, Malorie finds love, hope and a new beginning only for it to unravel. Now she must flee with her two children down a treacherous river to the one place left that may offer sanctuary. But to survive, they'll have to undertake the perilous two-day journey blindfolded. Academy Award (R) winner Sandra Bullock leads an all-star cast that includes Trevante Rhodes, with Sarah Paulson, and John Malkovich in BIRD BOX, a compelling new thriller from Academy Award (R) winner Susanne Bier.

You've seen this all many times before, which doesn't mean you'll mind seeing it again.

The only real shock in this one is that it stars Sandra Bullock, who should know better.

Sandra Bullock commands the screen in this only fitfully scary, post-apocalyptic sci-fi/horrorshow in which invading aliens can only kill you if you look at them. So keep your eyes wide shut.

Eric Heisserer's script works better when it sticks to the basics, locking us in what could be the last safe place on Earth and allowing us to ask how we'd behave in such a nightmarish predicament.

Dec 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Much of the characterization found in this movie from the Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier... is severely undercooked.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

In the end, Bird Box's most significant shortcoming is that it's just too inert and unfocused to work as sci-fi horror.
