The Cloverfield Paradox Reviews

Page 1 of 5
February 18, 2018
This is science fiction for a YA audience, ergo, the grownups are expecting too much.
February 16, 2018
It's hard to not be disappointed by the lackluster surprise, which doesn't deserve to boast the name Cloverfield.
February 13, 2018
Appeals to the most seasoned follower of the adorable nonsense that is the fruitful decade of the 50's. [Full Review in Spanish]

February 13, 2018
The Cloverfield Paradox combines suspense, some terror and humor. [Full review in Spanish]
February 13, 2018
The big reveal at the end is a damp squib.
February 12, 2018
...it's a story full of cliches, narrative gaps and poorly developed characters. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
February 12, 2018
The movie's solid first and second acts fail to yield dividends, and the film crumbles into a confusing, poorly edited mess in the third.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 10, 2018
Thanks to Super Bowl hype, this is the world's flashiest bargain-bin rental.
February 9, 2018
Bogged down by generic action and characters, a confused plot, and an overall sense of been-there done-that, The Cloverfield Paradox, after a momentary burst of excitement, will likely fizzle out.
February 9, 2018
This third movie in the Cloverfield series deflects attention from a giant monster and instead focuses on an odd, unstable mishmash of moods and tones, gamely held together by a fine cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 9, 2018
Maybe the people who made that upcoming "Cloverfield" project will have enough time to do reshoots to return itself to its original standalone status so that it can avoid the taint of this sucker.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 9, 2018
There are humanist bits and chunks of "Interstellar" and "Arrival," though in order to set up another chapter of this loosely assembled saga of woe, "The Cloverfield Paradox" eventually, dutifully gets around to a nonhuman adversary in close-up.
February 9, 2018
The plot has been awkwardly repurposed for the Cloverfield universe-the focus-grouped seams are everywhere apparent.
February 9, 2018
At best it's a piece of fan service designed to explain why the "Cloverfield Universe" exists-and even then, it's kind of slipshod and lazy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 9, 2018
Its twists feel routine, its narrative spine limp and its conclusion especially rushed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 9, 2018
The fastest turnaround from must-see event to disappointing dud in history.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
February 9, 2018
A kluge of bad science and worse science fiction clichés, it tries to be atmospheric and scary but succeeds only at being frustrating and tedious.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 8, 2018
As a big fan of Alien, I really enjoyed this... to a point. Then the second half left me thinking of the Geico commercial with the fisherman saying 'oooh you almost had it.'
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
February 8, 2018
It's a fun and relatively competent space thriller which goes some way to explain its two predecessors.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 8, 2018
Descends into a barely coherent people-going-crazy-in-space film that borrows liberally from the Alien franchise, Solaris, Event Horizon, Sunshine, Interstellar and Another Earth (to name a few).
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
