The Box (2009/I)

Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world; someone they don't know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

This movie had a ton of potential, however it fell way short! Good story line but it was way confusing and I'm not sure I understand what happened. Something about a box and aliens. The ending was possibly the worst ending I have ever seen. Probably the worst movie of the year! Such a let down, it was a good idea!

You'd think the description would describe what was going to happen in the movie. This is an hour and half of my life that is gone. I've got a box to put this in.

Avoid this movie if you can. It raises more questions at the end and leaves you hanging. I rather rent "Joe's Apartment" again than to have ever rented this movie. ***Spoiler*** Who was his employer? Why was he testing? The movie hinted at some of the answers but didn't answer them.

  1. I wish I'd avoided it. What mess of a movie. More and more it just shows you how much of a fluke Donnie Darko being good was.

  2. I know! I came into this with such high hopes because Darko is easily in my Top 10. I was angry that I actually could've been doing ANYTHING better with my time instead of watching The Box!
