It wasn't any better than any other space-monsters movie but it wasn't as bad as some of the reviews are indicating. The best part was the last 10 seconds- I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a prequel to Cloverfield? If so, I don't recall them mentioning an energy crisis in that one so it doesn't really work. Chris O'Dowd is underrated. In general. Just sayin.
Is there anything more unimaginative, more uninspired, and more quintessentially JJ Abrams, than purchasing 3 unrelated scripts, shoot some scenes to shoehorn them into one another, and call it a universe?
BIRDBOX IS THE WORST MOVIE EVER MADE IN HUMAN HISTORY. JUST SAYING
Unlike some people, I personally didn't mind the loose connection between 'Cloverfield' and '10 Cloverfield Lane'. Both were very good films in their own right. 'Paradox' is similarly very loosely connected to the 'Cloverfield' universe, but the problem is that unlike the other two, it's not a good film on its own terms. It's boring and does virtually nothing of substance with the cast, characters, and story. Really just a waste of time. 1/5*
poor execution of ideas
Just horrible. Absolutely horrible
A cheap and tired plot
This is a fun sci-fi disaster movie and wisely moves fast enough to keep the audience questions to a minimum. By avoiding specifics the plot is able to adopt a 'here's what's happening, just go with it' attitude that works well enough. Lots of fun sci-fi ideas, most of which have been done before. Like many disaster movies it suffers from character contrivances that put themselves in more danger than necessary, but if that doesn't bother you then you may really enjoy this one.
Seriously flawed movies with a few decent bits. I personally liked when weird shit started happening on the station and there wasn't nearly enough of that. One gripe I have that may seem pedantic as well was that the physics in it for the gravity/water freezing in space was completely ridiculous, and having them spot the earth from the other side of the sun and plan to travel the vast distance in a shuttle was mindbogglingly dumb. So many idiotic plot points that made no sense except to artificially inject drama and suspense.
Its like the movie Event Horizon but worse.
