... started off incredibly strong and petered out to a predictable and dull ending. Not great, not awful, it's certainly a disappointment.

While this doesn't breathe new life into the genre, or even the series itself, the blueprint was certainly there to have constructed a much better model.

[The Cloverfield Paradox is] not the event film that Netflix wanted it to be...
February 7, 2018
Unfortunately, The Cloverfield Paradox is a bad film. It feels like a sanitized version of the hard-R, sci-fi cult classic Event Horizon.

Thanks to Super Bowl hype, this is the world's flashiest bargain-bin rental.
February 5, 2018
Ramshackle and clunky, The Cloverfield Paradox has the lurching feeling of a movie that's been edited and re-edited so many times that it's whittled away its identity.
February 5, 2018
Once you can see past the fraudulent release strategy, you get a disappointing sci-fi full of ideas and lacking of answers. [Full review in Spanish]

It's not a good movie, and I'd even go as far as saying that it's easily the worst of the Cloverfield flicks so far. Don't get caught up in the marketing hype, there are better things to watch.

February 6, 2018
In the end, the plot is disappointingly simple. The terrors of the first two movies are explained away in a summary flourish, and their mysteries neutralized. The script is not good.
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 5, 2018
With its haphazard plot twists and muddy motivations, Paradox mostly takes the boring parts from Life, Alien: Covenant, Event Horizon, and Interstellar ... with a hint of one of the lesser Black Mirror episodes, and adds the word Cloverfield.
February 5, 2018
Perhaps what makes The Cloverfield Paradox so frustrating is that it squanders the gifts it has been given.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
February 7, 2018
Paradox is a dramatically indecisive, tonally convoluted, poorly written mess.
February 7, 2018
Yes, "The Cloverfield Paradox" is bad, really bad. In fact, it's far and away the worst movie of the "Cloverfield" universe.

All over the place. A good premise bogged down by messy execution. A missed opportunity. [Full review in Spanish]

...it's a story full of cliches, narrative gaps and poorly developed characters. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
February 5, 2018
Not containing the wit to be smart, thrilling sci-fi nor the chutzpah to embrace a fun, B-movie shlock vibe, it unfortunately feels like an uninspired TV pilot that any other network would've permanently locked in a vault.

The Cloverfield Paradox may be a splash for Netflix, but it's a dud as a sci-fi thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: D
February 18, 2018
This is science fiction for a YA audience, ergo, the grownups are expecting too much.
February 5, 2018
At best, a schlock sci-fi movie that has the quality of a straight-to-video sequel. And at worst, it should have us worried about the direction of the Cloverfield franchise as a whole.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
