Bird Box -I’ll Decide Who Looks | KT Review

Bird Box has been a highly anticipated movie. With a large number of people arguing over its horror factor and comparing it to other movies. But then, isn’t that the same with every horror movie? You know how it is, movies get hyped up. Everyone is waiting on the edge of the seat for the release date and then come the influx of not so flattering reviews.

So, let’s clarify a couple of things. Bird Box is based on a book that came out in 2014 and is a post-apocalyptic novel. Apocalypse means total complete destruction of the world. But it also means an event that results in damage on a catastrophic scale – you know, with survivors who have to deal with the aftermath. The film rights to Bird Box were optioned before the book was even released in 2013.

Bird Box Review Conclusion

I probably wouldn’t watch it again – It was a good non-linear movie, that fed you small amounts of information at a time. It wasn’t the scariest movie of the year (but I am difficult to scare) but it was enjoyable. Fairly fast-paced, and with plenty of strange occurrences to keep you guessing. It’s not perfect, it has a few instances where you find yourself asking why would they do that or why don’t they just…but if you can deal with those minor irritations it’s worth a watch.

4 Stars

Pop the popcorn, grab a big drink and settle in with your cosy blanket. It’s a safe one to watch with friends and family, not younger children as there is some violence. Watching with friends could enhance the viewing pleasure as you discuss and argue about how you would deal with that situation.
