CloverField

In Theatre : January 18, 2008
Director(s): Matt Reeves

On the eve of his departure for Japan, Rob (Michael Stahl-David) sees his going-away party as an opportunity to confess unresolved feelings and tie up loose ends. His agenda takes an unexpected turn when a jolt shakes the revelers. The crowd quiets down to watch news reports of an earthquake, then rushes to the roof to assess the damage.

A fireball explodes on the distant horizon. A power failure follows. Confusion gives way to panic as the partygoers stumble through the blackout and into the streets.

Amid the human screams and one inhuman roar, Rob and his friends must traverse a landscape that has changed, overtaken by something otherworldly, terrifying, monstrous…

Cloverfield (2008) Review by gabs1515

Let's get down to business.   Let's start with the big questions.  It's spoiler free until the end, but I mark it.Does it live up to the hype?I have to say yes!  I do think it was a little MUCH, but f...

Cloverfield really sucked…. and I mean it really blows, I went with my wife and three teenage daughters and we all were really disappointed. it was the worst movie I have ever seen. just before we bought our tickets we...
Cloverfield Review by Conanthebarbie

Saw Sneak Preview of Cloverfield tonight, and it delivered.  It really delivered.  This movie worked for me because I prepared myself for the hand-held camera action beforehand, and I KNEW NOTHING ELSE.  ...
CloverField Review by Goon

Hype, its the one thing that can either really help a film or hurt it tremendously. Much like with Snakes On A Plane we saw what happened when hype can completely consume a film and build up expectations only to have the...
Cloverfield (2008) Review by jackalqueen

This film is barely even worth reviewing.  I have not been as bored during a film in a long time and spent more time looking at my watch than the screen. The 'innovative' camera work is in pure Blair Witch territor...
Cloverfield Review by alien25

First let me say that I am not a Cloverhead.  While I did greatly anticipate the arrival of this film, I did not religiously follow all of the hype and viral marketing for the film like some have.  This was par...

Theres no denying they hype behind the film Cloverfield, but the question I have been wondering for months is the hype going to be worth the payoff in the end?  Personally, I think while the idea was in the right pl...

Cloverfield.... Yet another monster raging through NYC... What make it different, is the first person point of view, and that is about all. I went into this movie with mixed expectations, and came out with mixed feelings...
Cloverfield Review by alex1176

"Cloverfield" plays like "Godzilla" meets "The Blair Witch Project" and thankfully, the result is the first effective horror film of 2008. Of course, as everyone knows by now, "Lost" creator J.J....
Cloverfield (2008) Review by jamhorner

So let me start off by saying that this review is actually customized for HM.ca, and will not go on IMDB like my other reviews. With that said, as many of you know that I am a huge Cloverhead / Clovy, I followed the vira...
Cloverfield Review by PenningtonNY10

Cloverfield is why we go to the movies. This film is an all out visceral attack against your auditory and visual senses. It's an experience like no other theatrically, and I mean every word of that statement. People comp...
Cloverfield Review by Necrocephalis

I went into this movie hoping to see a creature that had the potential to be the so called "American Godzilla", I did. But that was all. POV movie making is ok, but there was way to much shaking around, it went beyond se...

Cloverfield Review by macdapimp19

Cloverfield Review by Shakingman

Well, the Shakingman saw Cloverfield and he highly recommends it.  Worth every penny of the $7.75 CDN Matinee price. Cloverfield delivers! After a fairly quick introduction to some major players in the film, all som...

Cloverfield Review by Constantce

I’m so glad when a horror movie does well in the theaters. It means that there is more to come, usually in that same niche, and most often in the form of sequels. Cloverfield did the impossible, creating an enormous ...
Cloverfield Review by TheResidentEvil

LOL.  Okay.  I tried so hard to avoid watching this movie, but curiosity was killing the cat. I don't really like watching things while they are popular only because crowded theaters make me claustrophobic and ...
Cloverfield Review by The Dude

Cloverfield is NOT the end-all-be-all of movies. Nor is it the reinvention of cinema. It's a mildly entertaining monster picture, told from a fresh perspective that, while not building a better mousetrap, sets up an inte...
Cloverfield Review by DrFrank
