I checked this movie out and I wanted to see what the hype is all about surrounding this movie. And I'd say it's alright.
Story: Bird Box follows a woman and 2 young children who must make it through the forest and the river blindfolded in order to not see these supernatural entities that are terrorizing the world.
Review: With an interesting premise, intense atmosphere, and a solid cast, Bird Box offers something intriguing in the realm of Netflix movies. Sandra Bullock and the rest of the cast acted well. The setting was dark and creepy. The shift from city life to inside the forest was appreciated. I like the idea of not 'seeing' what the creatures really were. It gives that mysterious feel to it. The music was eerie. There were scenes that were really intense, especially when Girl was trying to look for Malorie (Sandra Bullock) and when Boy and Girl got separated in the forest. Those scenes were really well handled. Other than that, It wasn't really anything special. At times, it was boring and I wished the movie would pick it up. Some character decisions were questionable. I don't really see the hype for the movie, to be honest. It was an alright movie. There were parts that were good and there were others that were not. Overall, the cast and the atmosphere make up for the movie. I don't even think it is a horror movie as well. It is merely post-apocalyptic. Bird Box gets an okay 7.5 out of 10
