Netflix Thriller Movie Review
What do you do when something that wants to kill you uses everything you’ve ever loved, feared, and wanted against you? And then once you see it, you’re dead. That’s what happens in this apocalyptic thriller.Bird Box, starring Sandra Bullock, is one of those movies that takes you to a supernatural precipice, then plunges you into an understanding that sorta reminds you of somethign else. Peep my thoughts...
A woman and two children have to survive, alone in a world that’s wants to destroy. With a story line that reminds you of The Happening and ending like the Book of Eli, they embark on said journey facing one near impossible obstacle that could hurt most. Icy, watery rapids. Can they traverse the terrain and river, let alone survive the invisible force determined to destroy all mankind?
Bird Box is both spooky, saddening, frightening, loving, shocking and more. It’s one of those films that makes you want to be strong while remaining transparent enough to save those you love.When I first heard about it, I doubted it would be any good. So many movies promise terror but always end up predictable and disappointing.
I have to admit, I managed to understand some of Bird Box enough to know what was coming, but it wasn’t one of those you could easily figure out. It’s a precious movie that crosses several genre lines, yet brings tears to your eyes.
Netflix did a great job with this one- check it out! I’m off to the next read.
