10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (Theatrical Release USA 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

10 Cloverfield Lane—
the second installment in a film series beginning with Cloverfield—has good concept. While the script seems to be a high-budget offering, the film fails on the filming and acting levels. Although this movie presents better than its sequel, Cloverfield Paradox, it seems a bit boring and slow due to lack of capturing the excitement factor that the story requires. Actor John Goodman appears weakly fitted for his role and unfortunately, the rest of the cast seem mediocre. While leaving theatre, one may reflect ‘This film is not up to par for entertainment quality’.

After leaving New Orleans, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) gets into a car accident. She wakes up in an underground bunker and learns the world outside the bunker has changed.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Dan Trachtenberg for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Bryan Burk, Drew Goddard, and Matt Reeves for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Howard (John Goodman), Emmett (John Gallagher Jr.), Driver (Douglas M. Griffin), Woman (Suzanne Cryer), Ben (voice of Bradley Cooper), Voice on Radio (voice of Sumalee Montano), Radio Broadcaster (voice of Frank Mottek), and Paper Girl (Kayla Bechor).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. If viewers love Cloverfield, this is the second film in the series. Better alien watches, however, are Arrival or the 1951 black and white version of The Day the Earth Stood Still.
