MGK, or Machine Gun Kelly, played the character Felix in the movie “Bird Box.” Felix steals a car with another survivor, Lucy, and they drive away from the safe house, never to be seen again in the film.
In the 2018 post-apocalyptic thriller “Bird Box,” directed by Susanne Bier and based on the novel by Josh Malerman, Machine Gun Kelly (Colson Baker) portrays Felix, one of the survivors who finds refuge in a house with the protagonist, Malorie, played by Sandra Bullock. The movie revolves around an unseen force that causes people to commit suicide if they look at it, leading survivors to navigate the world blindfolded.
Felix is a relatively minor character who is part of the group of survivors that Malorie joins after a mysterious force decimates the population. The survivors are holed up in a house, trying to protect themselves from the outside threat. Felix’s character is not deeply explored, but he is portrayed as a rebellious and somewhat self-serving individual.
As the movie progresses, tensions rise within the group, and survival becomes increasingly difficult. In a pivotal scene, Felix and another survivor, Lucy, played by Rosa Salazar, take advantage of the chaos following an attack on the house. They steal the car that the group had been using for supply runs, equipped with navigation systems and proximity sensors to drive without seeing the road. After they drive away, their fate is left ambiguous, as the film does not provide any further information about what happens to them after they abandon the main group.
The decision by Felix and Lucy to leave the group is one of several moments in “Bird Box” that illustrate the breakdown of social order and trust in the face of an overwhelming threat. Their departure adds to the sense of isolation and desperation experienced by the remaining characters as they struggle to survive in a world where the mere act of sight can lead to death.
