Conceptually, there's something to both Paradox and the overall loosely-connected Cloverfield universe. Unfortunately, the bulk of the movie's runtime fails to capitalize on virtually any of that promise.

The decision to make this a Cloverfield movie at the last minute didn't make the movie any better. In fact, it probably made it worse.

This surprise Netflix addition comes from a distinguished franchise, but like a paradox, no matter how hard you think about it, it will always be logically unacceptable.

Instead of birthing a new method of distribution, Netflix demonstrated the most high profile dumping of a garbage product.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

This wasn't the heralded gamechanger. This was a studio desperately attempting to dump a disastrous film, but use a clever PR stunt to fool us all into watching it.

Despite some interesting moments, this feels like a failure. The filmmaking is incredibly bland, the story can't figure out if it's having fun with the weirdness or not, and the Cloverfield tie in is gimmicky, leaving you with more questions than answers.

I have no regrets about watching the movie, the acting was great and it's definitely an interesting story...but it just didn't feel like a Cloverfield movie.

Apparently in space, nobody can hear you say 'meh.'

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

You can get better versions of this movie in multiple places elsewhere.

It just felt like something was missing. nothing about this movie was very exciting. I'd say it was just a very average Sci-fi movie.

One of the big problems with Paradox is that 85 percent of the film is explanation, leaving very little time for character development.
February 5, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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.
