The premise for The Box sounds like something someone came up with staying up late with his college roommates: what if someone gave you a box, and in it there is a button that, if you push it, you will get a million dollars; the catch is that someone, somewhere, whom you don't know, will die. What a wild and crazy moral dilemma! Get me another beer!
Overreaching and manipulative, The Box is one to be skipped. Don't press the button.
Bottom line, 1 star.
