Bird Box was released to stream worldwide on Netflix December 21, 2018. The movie has since gone viral sparking a trend of memes. It’s impossible not to be aware of this movies existence, so with all the hype surrounding this movie, there lies one question that non-viewers of the movie want answered; is it overrated or genuinely worth watching?

The movie begins with us discovering that there is a plague causing unexplained mass suicides taking place in Romania, incidents into Europe and Siberia. With estimated death tolls in the tens of thousands. The only thing you can really be certain about in this movie is if you see the unexplained “mysterious monster,” you die. Sandra Bullock as Malorie embarks on a dangerous journey with her children through the woods and down a river for 48 hours to find the one place that may offer sanctuary during this apocalypse. To make it, they’ll have to cover their eyes from the evil that chases them and complete the trip blindfolded.

Bird Box is like a medley that samples from quite a few other movies “A Quiet Place,” “The Happening,” “The Mist,” “Night of the Living Dead” and “Children of Men.” The information we get about the the whole suicidal plague is very little, we don’t even get to see the monsters everyone is yelling about. Just some leaves that flutter around, which “Annihilation” did better last year. There’s nothing thoughtful about this movie, which makes it a perfect Netflix movie, which only requires the click of a button. The movie was way too over-hyped and predictable.
