I’ve seen Quite Place and I really like that movie and from then I’ve seen many movies but after Quite place this movie impressed me a lot and I’ve watched this movie with my friends and they also liked it very much.Beautifully penned and had a great screenplay.Totally loved it.

Like A Quiet Place, but instead of noise its what you shouldn't see that makes it feel so helpless. I liked Bullock's character refreshing look at woman and motherhood.

"the happening" meets "A quiet place". Not scary, character development leads nowhere and falls flat on it's face. Good luck running through a forest blindfolded.

There’s Bullock, doing something good and interesting. Though it does ultimately prove frustrating and sad, watching her so desperately grasp for a finer film—one that lies just beyond what Bird Box allows us to see.

This is a wannabe shocker with a clever premise that doesn't really get down and dirty or betray the base instincts of a born horror filmmaker.

Outside of its admiration for mothers, Bier’s film seems to only vaguely hint at other ephemeral ideas, and as a result Bird Box is a curiously hollow experience.
