Did this movie really need a triple twist at the end?When you're rooting for the terrorist in the movie the thing's already off the rails.

"Four Boxes" has its funny spots, and when the plot finally revs up, it delivers some freaky moments. But did we really need a triple-twist ending?

The premise has a decent amount of potential, but five minutes in the trying-too-hard dialog becomes tiresome. Any tension that is built up is immediately ruined with an entire conversation of internet acronym speech and terrible slang. "Whatup douche?" - "NBD, OOC bro!" Half of the plot seems to revolve around eating or talking about eating fast food. I thought I saw the twist coming a mile away, until I realized that what I had worked out in my head was quite a bit more interesting than what turned out to be happening. On a positive note, I liked the opening credits.

Interesting premise, but WAY too long and the slacker schtick gets old very quickly. I didn't particularly like it, but couldn't break away until the end. There is something that keeps this watchable. Can't not recommend it.

The multiple twists killed the movie, otherwise it would have been a great success

I was going to put this flick on my shitlist but I guess the ending saved this movie.

A creepy and suspenseful debut from Minneapolis Natives. This low budget movie was creatively written and easily heart-pounding freaky. Well acted, it keeps you guessing on how it's going to end.

This movie kept me guessing until the very end. I could not tear my eyes away from the screen! It was reminiscent of Paranormal Activity with that same amateur edginess and cast of guileless innocents on a roller coaster of terror. The ending was a bit of a let down, but it's worth seeing for 99.9 percent of the movie. I really loved it. Unique, thrilling, pulse-pounding!

Stupidest fucking movie I've ever seen in my life what a waste of time 1 hr and 25 minutes of porn time wasted what the fuckk. Not to mention the shitty acting throughout the whole movie it really sucked I advise every store to throw it out or down the toilet one or the other I did and I rented it. Well technically I first shit on it. I hate my rental store for even allowing it to be rent waste of money and even bigger waste knowing i have to pay for the disc that dissapeared. Does't even deserve a half star.

Hands down the worst movie I have ever seen. The script comes off like some bitter middle-aged has-been's view of younger generations. According to this movie, we all talk in internet lingo "BD! Big Deal!" "BRB!" and are insurmountably stupid. The characters in this movie are unlikable, flat, insipid, and uninspiring. The script is atrocious, the acting is ridiculous, the dialogue is mind-numbing, and the edits amount to constant white-outs to the next scene (apparently connecting the two in an intelligent way is too difficult). There's no real pacing or thread to speak of, more like a series of shots that tell a story that squanders any potential it had. About halfway through I was done with it and just watching to see what happened, if there was some big payoff, but of course there wasn't. Just ridiculous plot twists with no intelligence and no attachment. I honestly can't believe they can even call this a film, it's that bad. Stay away at all costs. I truly feel robbed of 80 minutes of my life.

Strange and often funny, but I really can't say much about it without giving away plot points. It's a more interesting mumblecore thriller experiment than "Baghead" but ultimately didn't really work for me.

I understood what the filmmakers were trying to do here, and I appreciate the creativity - but next time, I would suggest they hire actors that can act, and write characters that you can actually sympathize with and like.

Too little wayyy too late.

Very original idea with an awesome twist. This movie is really made for the Internet generation. There is one bad part and that is the ending...

Original "cyberthriller" with an interesting cast and concept, but the execution is a tad cheap and the ending unsatisfying. Still worth a watch if you like to see some fresh ideas.

A slow yet strange movie. Had a good twist to it. Without giving too much away, I have to say the last 5 to 10 minutes, I wasn't sure if it was another twist, or actually what was happening.

Four Boxes is a well-done thriller done on a shoestring budget. The cleverness of the plot and the interesting script make it well worth watching, especially if you are interested in independent films. Justin Kirk is great and the other cast members (largely unknown) do a good job.

I wasn't crazy about the ending, but I guess I'm willing to forgive that for the first-time film-maker.

Extremely random. Decent flick though.
