Elliot Reviews Songbird

In the sci-fi thriller Songbird (2020), a courier who is immune to the Covid 23 virus, races to save his girlfriend from the Q-Zone Covid concentration camp. Directed by Adam Mason, the film stars Sofia Carson, KJ Apa, Alexandra Daddario, Jenna Ortega, Demi Moore, Craig Robinson, Peter Stormare and Bradley Whitford. YouTuber Elliot from his channel Movie Files, shares his thoughts on this pandemic-based movie.

I think it is so clear of day that this film was clearly written, casted by actor that were bored during quarantine, shot and edited all within maybe four to six weeks tops. It is so clear within this film that it is just so rushed and just so unoriginal and so bland when it comes to the story. It’s extremely boring, I'm not going to lie. I was bored throughout this film.

The furthest thing from a thriller movie, says Elliot who finds the storyline to be underdeveloped. There is potential to be a great commentary on the current climate of the pandemic, but fails to do so, according to the YouTuber.

Despite being a relatable topic of film in terms of life during a pandemic and using social and digital technologies to stay connected with each other, Elliot finds the film to be very unnecessary and is another example of Hollywood trying to capitalize on what’s going on in the world right now.
