The Box – Movie Review
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.
The Box is a really smart idea with an interesting cast, Cameron Diaz and James Marsden and Frank Langella and a really messed up execution. The idea is that a woman is given a box and the idea is that if she pushes the button that she gets $1M and somebody somewhere dies which is an interesting moral dilemma. A disfigured stranger shows up to explain the dilemma but I don’t want to tell you too much about it because if you decide to go see this movie which I wouldn’t really suggest then I don’t want to spoil it for you but the idea is a smart idea that was really dumbed down, two stars.
