Songbird is a pandemic thriller that deals with Covid-23 and that may be far too soon in today’s social media age and with Covid-19 currently going on, this movie is bound to get a whole lot of hate from the masses from the word go!
However, the movie isn’t as terrible as you’ve probably heard. Although it isn’t great either, there’s a massive amount of flaws in Songbird, making it out to be the next Bird Box and it may gain a cult following. I thought personally, that the acting was hit or miss.
KJ Apa and Craig Robinson did a good job with their parts respectively. Bradley Whitford however, gave a Razzie-worthy performance. I hate to say that after Get Out. Alexandra Daddario was admirable but ultimately in a wasted role that wasn’t fleshed out enough to have any real commentary.
With Songbird being produced by Micheal Bay, I feel like it suffered from him being too involved, with a frantic pace and not enough character development to go around and not enough characters to care for even the ones we’re supposed to care for.
Overall grade: 2.5/5 stars
