What You Need To Know:

BIRD BOX BARCELONA is a spinoff to a Netflix movie starring Sandra Bullock. BIRD BOX BARCELONA follows Sebastian, who’s wandering the city in searching for other people seeking to evade deadly visions driving people to suicide. Sebastian’s young daughter is with him. She sometimes seems sweet, then suddenly encourages him to “save” others from the visions by ripping their blindfolds off and causing them to commit suicide. A demonic priest and his followers do this, and worse. Sebastian eventually meets a woman helping a young girl return to her mother. Can Sebastian control his evil impulses and save their lives? Can they steer clear of the evil priest and his minions?

It’s hard to care about the answer to these questions since BIRD BOX BARCELONA so willfully perverts the idea of salvation, souls, the essential value of human life, and the work of clergy who devote their lives to doing God’s work. The movie is wholly unpleasant as it features multiple graphic ways that people kill themselves. BIRD BOX BARCELONA also has a debased view of humanity and God’s gift of salvation.

Content:

(OOO, ABABAB, FRFRFR, C, B, Ho, LLL, VVV, S, MMM)

Dominant Worldview and Other Worldview Content/Elements:
Very strong demonic, anti-Christian worldview distorts Christian and Catholic thinking into sick blasphemy, despite some apparent Christian, biblical content moral (there’s a demonic ghost in the movie, and an evil Catholic priest is actually demonic, with a branding on his hand of one eye, and he draws single eyes on his victim’s foreheads, which is symbolic of the occult practice of “opening the third eye,” which gives people an evil view of the world, and what they can do in life, plus one woman is “married” to another woman

Foul Language:
At least 26 obscenities (including 19 “f” words), three profanities using Jesus and three light profanities

Violence:
Frequent highly disturbing, graphic and bloody depictions of all manner of suicides, with the protagonist tricked by an evil Catholic priest and [SPOILER] the vision of his young daughter, and the movie’s most horrible and sick content consists of the fact that the priest and his minions fool other people into believing they are seeing visions of God and the angels when in reality their unseen visions are so horrific they drive them instantly mad and kill themselves, the suicides are particularly of people smashing their heads against walls and through glass, a young girl leaps to her unseen death from the roof of a building as her father helplessly watches, multiple scenes of people having their eyes forcibly pried open or gouged, several disturbing shots of one man whose eyelids were sewn back to create just flesh where his eyes used to be, two men impale each other on a long piece of metal and bleed to death, a young girl is shown walking through fire and then

Sex:
A reference to a man’s ex-wife having an affair, and one woman is “married” to another woman

Nudity:
No nudity

Alcohol Use:
No alcohol use

Smoking and/or Drug Use and Abuse:
No smoking or drugs; and,

Miscellaneous Immorality:
[SPOILERS FOLLOW] The movie has a final twist that betrays what had seemed to be a positive ending where a mother and child managed to escape the evil streets of Barcelona, but reveals they’re in an even worse circumstance, which ends the movie with a bleak and disturbing final scene that indicates viewers will be subjected to a sequel with more of this garbage in the future.

More Detail:

BIRD BOX BARCELONA is a spinoff movie to the 2018 Netflix hit BIRD BOX, which starred Sandra Bullock as a woman who embarks on a dangerous quest to save her children from society that has gone insane and committed mass suicide due to seeing horrific visions. The first movie was grim and disturbing, but had a fast-moving plot, a happy ending and great performances.

BIRD BOX BARCELONA has none of these things., Its entire cast is composed of unknowns, it is bleak from start to finish, and the characters are written so poorly and unsympathetically that viewers have no one to care about or root for. It also doesn’t help that its threadbare storyline manages to be both repetitive and confusing at the same time.

And worst of all, the movie adds a depraved and disturbing, anti-Christian focus to its main concept this time around. The movie has nothing but contempt for Christians in particular and viewers in general and is an absolute must to avoid.

The original BIRD BOX revolved around the fact that people around the world suddenly saw mysterious creatures who appeared in the form of their worst personal fears and drove them to commit suicide instantly. Anyone who wanted to survive had to blindfold themselves whenever outdoors or near windows.

Sandra Bullock and a terrific supporting cast led by John Malkovich played several people who attempted to flee the cities and head for a far-flung locale in which people were able to live

safely free of the evil visions. In BIRD BOX BARCELONA, we follow a man named Sebastian, who is wandering the title city in search of other people, supposedly for strength in numbers as they all seek to evade the visions.

However, Sebastian also has his young daughter with him, who seems sweet at times but then suddenly encourages him to “save” others from their fearsome situation by ripping their blindfolds off and causing them to commit suicide. He also slits the throats and other body parts of those whom he comes across that have already attempted to kill themselves but failed.

Whenever he causes a suicide or outright murders people, their souls shoot quickly to Heaven, which is what his daughter means by saying he “saves” them, and she tells him he’s a shepherd of these people. This gruesome view of things is made more hideous by the fact Sebastian’s facial appearance is similar to Christ’s, thus making this seem to be a willfully blasphemous take-off of Jesus as the Good Shepherd.

Aside from avoiding the visions and causing the death of others, Sebastian and his fellow humans are on the run from other evil humans who have managed to travel without blindfolds yet avoid committing suicide. These “seers” are led by an evil Catholic priest, who tells the people he comes across that the horrific visions are actually God and His angels as he either forces their eyelids open (leading to their immediate suicides) or gouges out the eyes of those who refuse to look.

SPOILER ALERT: It’s eventually revealed that Sebastian’s daughter is actually dead, and she’s appearing as an evil vision to him. END SPOILER.

Sebastian ultimately meets a single woman who’s on the run with a young girl who’s not her child, trying to escape to another city where she hopes they can be safe and reunite the girl with her actual mother.

Can Sebastian control his evil impulses and actually save their lives? Can they steer clear of the evil priest and his minions?

It’s hard to care about the answer to those questions since the movie so willfully perverts the idea of salvation, souls, the essential value and beauty of human life and the work of clergy who devote their lives to doing God’s work. BIRD BOX BARCELONA is a wholly unpleasant movie. It features multiple graphic ways that people kill themselves (including a girl throwing herself off a rooftop) and has a debased view of humanity and God’s gift of salvation, plus lots of strong foul language and a bleak ending.

BIRD BOX BARECLONA is totally unacceptable and abhorrent.
