10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Review


Directed by Dan Trachtenburg

Starring John Goodman and Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Plot: Michelle (Winstead) gets into a car crash. She awakes chained up in a room. A Dan Connor looking guy named Howard (Goodman) comes in and tells her the facts. There has been an attack of some sort and they’re in a bunker to be safe. Also, there is a local man who knew of this bunker is there. Michelle believes Howard is lying and tries to find the truth herself..


Review: Out of nowhere this film came. In the time where everything is documented on movie websites and in magazines, we get this. For the most part, it’s an enjoyable movie. It’s the kind of movie that keeps you guessing. Now, I’m not going to spoil anything, so don’t worry.

Goodman did very well on here. I mean, he carried the movie for me. Every scene with him was amazing. I do believe this is an oscar caliber film, well for his acting. I personally believe Goodman deserves better roles.

I’ll address something else. If you remember back in 2008, Abrams released Cloverfield, a giant monster film. Now, Abrams has said dozens of times about this film connection with that. So, while it’s not a straight up sequel, I believe this universe may be connected. Hopefully in another 8 years, we’ll get a conclusion.
