The Box Film Review

The Box starts out as a very interesting mystery/thriller. Push a button, someone who you don't know dies and you get $1 million from a strange man with a burnt face! However things then start to go wrong, both for the films stars and also with the film itself. It wanders off into the weird and wonderful sci-fi fantasy, well it is directed by the guy who did Donnie Darko. The film ends well, but leaves a few untied ends, like the whole "why" and "what" the heck was that, on the sci-fi element. If they'd left that aspect out it would have still been a great thriller, so its a shame they felt the need to stick it in.
