3.0 out of 5 stars Boxing Clever? 13 May 2010
Format:DVD
A facially disfigured man named Arlington Steward (played by the impressive Langella) turns up at a young couple's house and offers them a choice: ignore the box he had previously delivered, or open the box with a key, hit a red button and they will receive 1,000,000 dollars tax free. The catch is that if they push the red button, someone somewhere will die. Not something that most of us will experience in our lives I would imagine.

Its all set in the seventies and as a period piece it delivers very well. The ethical maze the couple go through is interesting, but it all gets a bit confusing when the film attempts to explain Mr Steward's modus operandi (something to do with being hit by lightening and acting as an agent for some unspecified superiors), especially as there are vague but apparently meaningless references to the Viking probe's mission to Mars.

Its quite a clever story, but at the time of watching it I saw too many imperfections to completely wow me. That said, I kept thinking about it time and again over several days and that counts for a lot in a movie these days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange but entertaining 21 April 2012
By Sam
Format:DVD
The Box is probably one of the weirdest films you'll ever see, its a strange blend of science fiction, conspiracy thriller, drama and pshycological horror. Cameron Diaz and James Marsden play a married couple who are given an offer by a creepy Frank Langella: press the button get a million dollars but somebody will die. And so ensues a strange series of events that all fit together quite cleverly but are sometimes a little far fetched to really seem terrifying. There is enough action, tension and great acting here to save this film from a two star rating and it is somewhat entertaining if you ignore the oddness of it all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling 11 April 2014
By HJ
Format:DVD
Gave it a go despite knowing beforehand it received bad reviews. I'm glad I did because for me one of those films that goes by quickly and keeps your interest, hence I don't understand why this film has more 1 stars than anything else, but then I don't like Donnie Darko and was in the minority there too it seemed. Still there are plenty of people here who did like this film, a marmite film really. I would say you're more likely to like it if you were born in the 70s and/or have seen and like the 70s 'horror' films, which this film is a pastiche of. I say 'horror' because it doesn't really qualify as horror for a modern audience but in the 70s films like this were common. I love the slightly bizarre, surreal, creepy style, and the acting emulates the style of acting in those films as well. Not easy to do this successfully, The Box pulls it off, stylishly. Directing, pacing, acting, dialogue all faultless. One thing I wondered about though is why they only show women pushing the button, I assume an allusion to Eve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Facing Extinction 10 April 2014
Format:DVD
The story is intriguing, suspenseful and thought-provoking, if somewhat obscure. The central performances are excellent, the depressing 1970s atmosphere and fashions lovingly recreated. Compulsively watchable thanks to its general off-beat oddity.

4.0 out of 5 stars good thriller 5 Oct 2013
By robbo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Taken from an original short story, this turns what was a short story into a complex thriller.Don't get me wrong you don't have to be a brain surgeon to work it out. Cleaverly crafted and turning out some outstanding special effects this will have you glued to the screen until the final frame.I don't want to give away to much plot but the premise is, take a family who are having a run of bad luck and offer them the chance of a million dollars.All they need to do is to decide to push the button in the box, if they do "someone" not known to them in the world will die! If they don't push the button "thank you, goodbye and heres a hundred dollars for your trouble" can't be as simple as that, can it!
Well this is a clever film with some quality acting and rattles alone at a cracking pace,and with an ending you wont see coming.
Highly recommended.....!

4.0 out of 5 stars The box 19 May 2013

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This film kept you interested, it was not what I expected but still enjoyable. I had expected the couple to get in trouble and find a way out of it, that does not happen.

4.0 out of 5 stars NO EXIT 14 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The year is 1976. Norma Lewis (Cameron Diaz) is a teacher who loves Sarte and teaches "No Exit" in her classroom, something that is a flag for symbolism and oddball. Arthur (James Marsden) is a NASA scientist. When Arlington Steward (Frank Langella) appears at their door, their dream life becomes a Phantasm nightmare. He gives them a box with simple instructions: Push the button and someone you don't know dies and you get a million dollars. After the payoff, our couple gets cold feet suspecting they are being set up for the next kill when some stranger pushes the button next.

The theme is set for the human race. This is what corporations do in third world countries where they exploit and sometimes kill workers in order to make money. Push the button, get a million dollars. The film turns weird after they push the button as it unleashes a sci-fi series of events that keeps you guessing.

If you noticed they lived in house number "7321" which adds up to lucky 13, something that would be more significant if this was a horror film. This is based on a short story and only Diaz's character was really developed. I had the feeling scenes were cut or deleted. There was an opportunity to utilize some neat scenes and special effects, but they opted for some water tricks instead. I would have loved this film if they showed more behind the scenes stuff instead of creating a mystery. If you are going to create a geek film, don't pull punches and try to make an Alfred Hitchcock Presents The Outer Limits.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.
