I think as real as the producer(s) of Bird Box wants us to believe it is, there are still some questions that need to be answered at the end of the movie. I ended up asking myself questions like: What happens when the survivors run out of food supply and there’s no means of getting food in any way whatsoever? What’s the cause of the virus? Who will eventually stop the virus?
Why would some people still open their eyes and not get hurt? Especially the woman who played the role of the heroine, alongside the two kids who were made to survive all forms of challenges. I mean, how on earth could such young chaps have survived such dilemma during such trying period, without getting infected with the virus or being hurt in the long run.
After asking myself these questions, I eventually had to face the reality that it wouldn’t have been possible for that woman and the two kids to survive all through the challenges, with their eyes blindfolded while they were navigating around and having nothing tangible to eat.
I also had to remind myself of the popular belief that “actor no dey die” 😄… I guess that’s why the woman didn’t have to die since she’s the main cast 😅
Also, I feel there’s no point trying to survive…but I’m sure they wanted to make us believe that they needed to survive despite the challenges and that’s why there had to be an escape route, courtesy of the home for the blind since they couldn’t survive in the normal world any longer. After all, they wouldn’t mind staying with the blind since they’re used to being blindfolded almost every time.
In conclusion, I think the movie is embedded with puzzles for its viewers to unravel the answers themselves 😄.
Thanks for reading through.
