Movie: The Box (2009)

You Are The Experiment

Synopsis adapted from ©Warner Bros:

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 (Cameron Diaz) is a private high school teacher and her husband, Arthur Lewis (James Marsden), is an engineer working at NASA. They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep and presents Norma with a life-altering proposition: the box.

With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face an impossible moral dilemma. What they don't realize is that no matter what they decide, terrifying consequences will have already been set in motion. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.

The plot sounds convincing and interesting. The problem is, James Marsden and Cameron Diaz don't manage to strike a strong on-screen chemistry that will keep this gloomy, draggy, and confusing movie watchable. A noteworthy point of the movie is its heavy focus on human emotions - love, hate, dilemma, fear, etc.

Needless to say, I began to feel restless and my interest to continue watching waned drastically after the first hour of the movie. Another thing, Cameron Diaz look old and pairing her up with the youthful looking James Marsden is just so... weird.


Overall, if you don't want to fall asleep in the cinema, I don't recommend this movie. Watch it on DVD is good enough.
