Based on the short story by Richard Matheson, The Box stars Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child. One day they receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences.

A mysterious stranger (Frank Langella) delivers a message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world... Someone they don't know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the crosshairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

Starts of with a Intriguing Premise, then turns into a bit of a Twilight Zone type Chiller, and then goes somewhere completely different.
I was sold on this movie from the simple premise of the movie, and the I did enjoy the twists and turns as they came along.
The ending didnt really do much for me. But what had gone before more than made up for it.
One of those movies, you will watch and if you enjoy it, will then be telling your friends about.
Its on its way to become a cult classic.

 Arthouse through and through.

Points of importance:

i) this is a Richard Kelly film.
ii) file with Michael Haneke, David Lynch and Darren Aronofsky.

Expect metaphysics, obtuseness and partial abstraction.

Reviewing the acting, production design or score would be pointless.

Watch it.

 'a tale of choices'

what would you do if a stranger left a package on your'e doorstep containing a box and a message.
the message informs you that he who had left it would return and explain it's purpose the following day.
you are then given a key to open the box, if you do that, and press the button, someone will die, and you will be given '1,000.000 dollars' ---cash.
the box seems harmless enough, however the choice you make will lead to even more choices and unknown to you, consequences of your'e actions will also follow.
the man you had invited into your'e home seems to have 'divine' or even 'demonic' powers, knowing everything you do.
it's not the most exciting film you'll see this year, however it's a clever plot and should hold your'e interest............enjoy.

 Way ahead of its time!

Thought-provoking and very much of the Donnie Darko standard. If you like this sort of film then The Box is a very intriguing watch. This film is way ahead of its time, as is Southland Tales.

 Weird, tense and makes you think

| | See all Kyle89's reviews (173)

This is a film from the same man who brought us Donnie Darko - you can safely expect it to be WEIRD. Though you'll probably not expect it to be as weird as it is, if weird is what you like, you're likely to be pleased.

The idea is great and I expected it to be tense, weird little film. Which I would've been happy with. Then it goes bigger, a whole lot bigger than I thought and, well, WANTED. The plot goes quite conspirital, goes on for quite a while, and once or twice I had to pause it to get my bearings.

That said, it's still good, and on second view is probably a lot better once you know what's coming. The two main characters are well cast - especially Cameron Diaz - and you feel for them, care whether they push the button or not. The character of Arlington Steward is superbly played and is likely one of the weirdest and most sinister, suspenseful characters you'll see in a movie.

It keeps you on the edge of your suit, there are one or two jumpy scenes, some awesome effects, one or two creepy scenes and you don't have much chance once it kicks off to be bored. A good, definitely unpredictable thriller.

The bluray transfer is awesome, you can see every little detail on Cameron Diaz's face, Arlington Steward's scarred face looks particularly real (not to mention gruesome) and the special effects with the water are especially enchanting. Well worth a good seven quid which is what I paid.
