10 Cloverfield Lane Review

Claustrophobia, Intensity, and doomsday shelters— time to review 10 Cloverfield Lane.

After hearing about the great marketing for this movie that involved filming it all in secret then simply dropping the trailer in front of a movie for everyone to go crazy over, I knew I had to check it out. I was really excited going in, and the movie did not disappoint. It was full of intensity and suspense throughout always leaving the viewing guessing about motivations and what was true or not. Even until the third act the story is constantly twisting and turning. My only complaint is that in the last ten minutes it turns into a completely different movie and gets kind of cheesy. In retrospect, I understand more of why it turned to a completely different movie but it still got cheesy.

All of the performances in 10 Cloverfield Lane were great and added to the experience. John Goodman does a brilliant job of portraying this crazy guy that you don’t know if he is telling the truth or not. His performance adds to the viewers questions throughout the story. The directing and score adds to the tone and feeling of claustrophobia throughout the film immersing the viewer more into the movie and enhancing the viewing experience.
Overall, I really enjoyed 10 Cloverfield Lane and can definitely see myself rewatching it one day! The suspense and story is great. If you are a fan of horror or suspense you should definitely check it out!
