Based on Richard Matheson's Short story "Button, Button". Richard Kelly(Donnie Darko, Southland tales)directs and writes this fine piece of film. The box has a very simple plot, it seems at first. The short story is basically summed up in the first thirty-five minutes of the film. Excluding the the end for a very promising, but different finale. The Box stars Cameron Diaz as Norma Lewis and James ... read more

Arlington Steward: I have an offer to make. If you push the button, two things will happen. First, someone, somewhere in the world, whom you don't know, will die. Second, you will receive a payment of one million dollars. You have 24 hours.

Arthur and Norma Lewis are the average married couple who are working pay check to pay check spending more than they have. They get an offer fro... read more

Press the play button and two things will happen. One, right in your head, your brain will die a little. And two, you will waste 2 hours on your life on a crappy movie. I was very skeptical about this movie. It seemed like it had a good idea. But I couldn't see them turning it into a 2 hour movie. The score was distracting, because it sounded like something you'd hear in "The Haunted Mansion". The... read more

Description: What if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars…but simultaneously take the life of someone you don’t know? Would you do it? And what would be the consequences? The year is 1976. Norma Lewis is a teacher at a private high school and her husband, Arthur, is an engineer working a ... (more)

"Holy crap has Richard Kelly lost it since his wonderful debut Donnie Darko. That film was just full of a strange dark beauty, full of nostalgia for the 80's and adolescence and was just fantastic. The Box by compassion is just utterly lifeless and devoid of color (and wit). It's not a terrible film, just a bit dull really, like an Outer Limits or Twilight Zone episode stretched out for far too long. 5/10 "

"Katsottu: 27.12.2013 Joskus pidin tästä, mutta tämä rewatch sai minut tajuamaan, että en tiennyt mistään mitään. The Box oli huono. En jaksa enää edes lähteä selittelemään mitä, miksi ja miten. Elokuvakaan ei tunnu sitä tietävän. Onneksi tässä oli joulu, koska olin unohtanut senkin. Selitän kuitenkin vähän. Muistakaa painaa nappulaa, koska Jumala, Mars, folio, CGI-vesi, dollari, ohjekirja, salama, opetus, kirjastomafia, NASA ja joulukuusi."

Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2013 (495 movies items)

"5.7 Kellyn suurin ongelma on se, että hän lähtee elokuvistaan tekemään monimutkaisia vain siksi, että ne olisivat monimutkaisia ja katsojalle kovaa purettavaa. Tässä ei mennä niin pitkälle kuten Southland Talesissa, mutta omat heikkoutensa ja turhanpuoleiset asiansa tälläkin on. Paikoitellen kuitenkin varsin kiehtovaa katsottavaa. Jospa sitten se Kellyn arvostetuin Donnie Darko olisi oikeasti hyvä elokuva. Täytynee katsoa sekin tässä lähiaikoina."

2012 Movie Diary - May (42 movies items)

"In a word: weird. I mean really, WTF? The beginning is understandable enough, its not too complex, just a little exciting but then the overthinking of the writers and the underthinkning of the viewers kicks in and it's turned into some confusing shit! But the end is good and easy to understand. So it's weird but I liked it. Cameron Diaz is amazing and James Marsden is sexy, what more do you need?"
