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.

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.

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

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

The actors are fine, but the problem is that it's hard to care about the interaction of the people inside, because nothing they do matters.

Bier keeps the mood taut and defiantly in the moment.
