Sandra Bullock commands the screen in this only fitfully scary, post-apocalyptic sci-fi/horrorshow in which invading aliens can only kill you if you look at them. So keep your eyes wide shut.
Eric Heisserer's script works better when it sticks to the basics, locking us in what could be the last safe place on Earth and allowing us to ask how we'd behave in such a nightmarish predicament.
Much of the characterization found in this movie from the Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier... is severely undercooked.
In the end, Bird Box's most significant shortcoming is that it's just too inert and unfocused to work as sci-fi horror.
The actors are fine, but the problem is that it's hard to care about the interaction of the people inside, because nothing they do matters.
Bier keeps the mood taut and defiantly in the moment.
This horror-thriller is rarely scary and only fitfully suspenseful...
Bullock delivers a convincing portrait of a woman in danger of losing her humanity...
Despite many elements in Bird Box working effectively, the movie never quite comes together.
Screenwriter Eric Heisserer and director Susanne Bier deliver a tension-building thriller that bodes not only one of the most exquisite cinematic payoffs but one of the most powerful emotional journeys of a single character to come along in many a day.
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.
Bird Box paints a bleak dystopian future but there's something about Sandra Bullock's performance that makes us care about what's happening.
