Cloverfield Review

May 10, 2008 at 7:09 pm (Movies)

I hope if we are ever attacked by a giant mysterious monster and I’m filming it, that I have a steadier hand than the cameraman in this movie. I felt like throwing up at times. The movie follows a group of friends-the guy going to Tokyo on business, and has a girlfriend who he isn’t as close with as he used to be. There’s also a girl and her boyfriend who is the business guy’s brother, who gets this guy who likes this other girl at the party. Just wanted you to know, because they’re the only main characters in the story. Pretty soon during they’re party this massive explosion goes off, and sends everyone into a panic. I will warn you, if you don’t like shaky cameras or get sick easily, DON’T WATCH THIS MOVIE. If you want something different, take a rent. The movie spans about a 90 min timeframe, which is good, it didn’t need to be too long. I started to buy this at one point, and I’m glad I didn’t. The movie is just one of those watch it once, you’ll love it or dislike it, or hate it. The movie is definitely an interesting one, it’s unique in it’s filming style, but the rocky camera and lack of re-watch keep it at a rent status.
