Reviews: Bird Box (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Chris Barsanti @ Slant
    • Excerpt: the conceit’s silliness and convenient scare tactics make Shyamalan’s take on infectious-suicide horror seem downright subtle by comparison.
  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: Bier has crafted a horror thriller sturdy enough to keep from being a failure but not one distinct or courageous enough to stand out from the pack.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: it is that ‘conceptual’ part that eventually undoes the film, screenwriter Eric Heisserer’s (“Arrival”) adaptation of Josh Malerman’s novel reading too much like a parody of Trump resistors and supporters.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: Bird Box doesn’t bring anything new to the post-apocalyptic thriller genre despite a strong third act and solid performances.
  • Courtney Howard @ FreshFiction.tv
    • Excerpt: This tension-fueled, exhilarating, highly emotional experience cuts to the bone, delivering a heartrending tale of survival and a mother’s journey towards acceptance.
  • [New] | Júlio Cézar Rodrigues @ Megalomania Cultural [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: The acting is great, the atmosphere is almost in the right place, but this thriller don’t live up to is premise and ends up being just passable.
