March 21, 2017
It's well acted, nuanced, and surprisingly effective. A definite must-see thriller.
December 28, 2016
It works best whenever Goodman swaggers into frame, a slack-jawed psycho with a cuddly side.
August 15, 2016
10 Cloverfield Lane might not be a true sequel to Cloverfield, but that doesn't make it any less magnificent, watching it a spellbinding treat I simply did not want to see come to an end.
August 2, 2016
Set in the same universe as the 2008 monster-focused blockbuster, 10 Cloverfield Lane focuses tightly on a trio of survivors, with solid fear and tension.
June 13, 2016
Both Winstead and Gallagher Jr. are great as the young bomb shelter roomies, but it's Goodman's film. He's a Stephen King-style character -- affable and menacing, with both a cheery bonhomie and a hair-trigger temper.
May 2, 2016
John Goodman brings his A-game to the part of the tightrope-walking Howard who is at times kind and gentle and at others unhinged and cuckoo. Mary Elizabeth Winstead matches him note for note.
April 9, 2016
Until its final ten minutes, this is a dazzling, absorbing, sometimes unbearably tense thriller, an efficient and precise three-hander that rarely takes a false step.
March 25, 2016
10 Cloverfield Lane alternates moods seamlessly, ratcheting tension to the breaking point and then deflating it with black humor.
March 20, 2016
All three cast members play their roles to a tee, with Goodman walking a thin line between threat and pathos, while Winstead does a terrific job of leading the audience through the increasingly outlandish revelations of the plot.
March 18, 2016
In an era of bloated blockbusters, 10 Cloverfield Lane is refreshingly pared down -- a chamber piece rather than an epic.
March 18, 2016
A wildly entertaining genre mash-up.
March 17, 2016
After a particularly dull Oscar season, this is a refreshing and extremely satisfying palette cleanser.
March 17, 2016
Happily, 10 Cloverfield Lane proves a wildly effective white-knuckle affair, replete with twists, turns and terror.
March 17, 2016
Don't give away the secret of this J.J. Abrams production, which begins as one sort of movie before turning into another sort of movie but manages to be continuously bad.
March 17, 2016
By the end, 10 Cloverfield Lane feels like a marketing plan posing as a movie.
March 17, 2016
The film stumbles a bit in the end, when the exact nature of the perils within and without are made clear, but up until that point, 10 Cloverfield Lane is scarily suspenseful stuff.
March 15, 2016
A smart and tense chamber piece that builds suspense carefully.
March 14, 2016
Trachtenberg ... smothers the action in showy camera work and an overly insistent music score. But, as the mystery unravels, he reveals flashes of a giddily hyperbolic pop imagination.

Put this down, close this tab, go to your local multiplex and just buy a ticket. Even better if you haven't seen more than a teaser trailer. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, proceed directly to the theater.
March 11, 2016
A bit formulaic, but oh so scary. Then there's John Goodman!
