Sucks. Does nothing. Ends the way you think it will, and you have to put up with horrible Bullock.

Thought it was incredible. Good story, lots of pawn characters that were meant to die (and die they did), good acting by Bullock and the kids. The atmosphere and tension were the best parts. Yes there were plot holes etc, but it wasn't meant to be a hyper realistic film. Most people who have been critical had some absurd expectation, as opposed to treating it like The Mist or akin films.

Somewhat agree. It's not terrible but not that great either.

Heard it both pro and con, mostly that is ultimately unsatisfying. Compared to films like A Quiet Place, The Happening, and even Night of the Living Dead.

Haven't seen it personally but my daughter loved it.

Some people have been frowning because the movie doesnt actually show you what they're seeing although it was kinda described...I like it better because they did it the way they did...kinda kept you gripping and wondering g a little more throughout the film.

My daughter looks kind of like the little girl in the movie. It freaked me out a bit from that aspect. The premise of the movie was pretty good, even if it didn’t make much sense.

I thought it was okay. Sandra Bullock seemed out of place in it to me though. The movie seemed like a Sy-Fi channel movie. Those rarely have big-name actors in them. I like the Sy-Fi-type movies, so I was okay with BB. If you don't like that type movie, you won't like Bird Box.

The kids were named Boy and Girl. Can you imagine the family reunion?

This is niece, nephew, Aunt, and Uncle.

Of course, what if Boy and Girl were transgender? That would be an interesting discussion.
