Don’t get your hopes up. This is Cloverfield 3 by name only. We couldn’t be further from the original film. The producers have really set out to make every installment their individual genre, ambiance and timeline. The Cloverfield Paradox is reminiscent of Event Horizon and so many horror films taking place aboard a spaceship. It’s a good picture but it fails to stand out. It’s not memorable.
These actors are pretty much unknown, and that’s probably the biggest disappointment. Some special effects look right out of a B-Movie, and some, on the other hand, are breath-taking. There are cool kills and injuries, and some aren’t gory at all. Some of the best moments of this film deal with teleportation in the most horribly ways. Expect tension and a lot of some mind fucking.
Why, exactly, is this movie titled The Cloverfield Paradox? Also, why are some of the characters speaking Chinese in the presence of people who don’t? Because we’ve seen 10 Cloverfield Lane, we keep expecting clever turns and twists, but these moments, sadly, never come. We keep hoping for a brilliant connection to the previous films and that’s not happening either.
