CLOVERFIELD PARADOX (VIdeo Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.2|5.0 Starsììì

The Cloverfield Paradox needs more backstory to get off the ground and portray its very good concept. Despite good casting choices, like David Oyelowo, the story is difficult to follow and does not seem to transition well between its various events so that the audience can understand the ‘why’ for the events.

Storyline

Ava Hamilton (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) works to establish a steady power source for earth from the space station, but events go horridly awry during an unexpected power surge.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Julius Onah for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Bryan Burk, Jon Cohen, Bob Dohrmann, Drew Goddard, Tommy Harper, and Matt Reeves for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Kiel (David Oyelowo), Schmidt (Daniel Brühl), Monk (John Ortiz), Mundy (Chris O’Dowd), Volkov (Aksel Hennie), Tam (Ziyi Zhang), Jensen (Elizabeth Debicki), Michael (Roger Davies), Molly (Clover Nee), and Ayana Age 7 (Jordan Rivera).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Better choices along this same storyline are: Knowing, Midnight Special, and, for the younger adult generation, Earth to Echo.
