4.0 out of 5 stars would you push the button? April 18 2011
By falcon
Format:DVD
in this film James Marsden and Cameron Diaz play a couple barely making ends meet who receive a box on their doorstep.they then receive a visit from a mysterious stranger(Frank Langella)who tells them if if they push the button the on the box,two things will happen.first,someone they don't know will die.second they will receive a million dollars in cash.of course,there is much more going on that that.this is certainly an interesting and original premise as far as i know.it's based on a short story by Richard Matheson,called,Button,Button.the movie certainly is thought provoking,and makes you think.i thought it was very well done.for me,The Box is a 4/5

2.0 out of 5 stars The Box Aug. 29 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Box was a disappointment. What people would do for money just didn't make sense in this movie. The story line and acting were weak. Some of the scenes had no reasoning behind them and I had to wonder who thought up this mish mash.I would not recommend purchasing this movie.

What makes the premise of this intriguing film so satisfying is its simplicity. A middle class couple facing financial difficulties is presented with a choice: push a button and they will be given a million dollars in cash ... and, someone they don't know will die. The problem is that the filmmakers develop an overly elaborate and inexplicably bizarre back story packed with visually intriguing ideas that never really go anywhere in order to account for why they were given the choice in the first place. It's not that it doesn't make sense, and it's not (as another reviewer suggests) that I wasn't paying attention or came into it expecting something else ... I get it and I get what Richard Kelly was going for and I actually kind of enjoyed the film all along but it didn't all add up and for many elements of the film the more you think about them the more hokey they begin to seem. Like the three watery portals that, at one point, James Marsden's character is presented with and told he must choose one and enter, with an ominous warning about the consequences of choosing incorrectly. Sure, they looked cool, but what was the point? It's not clear whether he chose correctly or what was really at stake and he just ends up somewhere else all wet and confronted with a more important question. Unlike some of the other "tests" that are given throughout the film, this one didn't have any kind of clear moral implications.

It's a fun watch, though; it's creepy and atmospheric throughout, and kept me intrigued for the most part throughout. The look of the film captures the early '70s nicely. I liked the connection with Sartre's infernal classic

2.0 out of 5 stars Incomprehensible Nonsense Jan. 29 2011
By Moodywoody TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film was based on a short story, and from the mess they made of this film, they should have left it as a good short story or make it a TV episode of the Twilight Zone. It takes the ingenious plot idea of an intriguing moral test and its implications on one's conscience, and rather than keep the story on this theme, they veer off into some kind of esoteric alien neo-spiritual nonsense. This film is all over the map, and as a consequence the viewer has no idea what he is watching. One moment it looks like the Invasion of the Body Snatchers; then a supernatural film involving religious ideas of eternal hell or salvation; possibly a drama about physical deformity; and finally a movie about omnipotent aliens as gods who will judge and determine humanities fate, even though these same aliens come off as rather petty and sadistic.

Viewing this film I couldn't help but feel the director and writer didn't know what to do with this film, and did a simple cop out by trying deliberately to be esoteric and incomprehensible to hide the fact that there was no substance to the plot of this movie. The film begins with promise, as it lays the foundation of the moral test and it introduces its characters, but the final two thirds of this movie is a boring disaster of nonsense as the film loses its plot bearing and identity.

I was very disappointed with this film.
