What are people saying?

  • Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    Pretty well-acted with a small cast and the plot to keep you wondering what's going on until the end but you just have to hang on & enjoy as it goes. Besides, it has nothing to do with the other CLOVERFIELD film anyway.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    Since I loved Stranger Things, I'd probably ought to loosen up, for the summer at least, about derivative pastiche (redundant for emphasis), and even, to a lesser extent, about lazily contrived plot mechanics. This here was a good time--a fun cat to puzzle together despite its missing pieces, and even despite its big dumb obvious pieces. Winstead lights up and puts a fine point on every shot she's in.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    I'm very, VERY surprised that "10 Cloverfield Lane" is entertaining & empowering response to "Mustang" from Hollywood. This movie is about how women is abused in society, But she strikes monsters by which she is abused powerfully BOOM! If "Mustang"'s youngest sister is daughter of John MaClane & Ellen Ripley, here is Mary Elizabeth Winstead! You love "Mustang"? Go to theater, see this and cry "YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH" out.

  • Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    Quite possibly the first "great" film of 2016. Again, Abrams has proven his knack in finding the next best thing in blockbuster filmmaking (this time,Dan Trachtenberg). Leaving no breathing room for the audiences.The first tow act is basically 'the hatch' plot in LOST being recycled to the same thrilling effect, while the third act....phew.

  • msmichel's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    Interesting that the original script had no relation to 'Cloverfield' but was reworked to fit the concept and excels in doing so. This is certainly not your average Hollywood entertainment but it a tense and often frightening excursion into the captivity and doomsday genres. Winstead and Goodman are both great here as are the scripting and editing choices. The final quarter becomes an entirely different film.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    You'll find shades of other films here - a touch of Shyamalan's "Signs" and Spielberg's "War of the Worlds," among others - filtered through a writerly sensibility not unlike Rod Serling and Stephen King, to the point that you might suspect "Lane" lacks a sense of identity. And yet there's something to this film, even if it's mostly the chance for Mary Elizabeth Winstead to shine in her first Ripley-esque role.

  • jxn's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    i found it unbearably slow in the beginning and the score to be way too over-the-top but eventually i set my expectations down and just enjoyed what it had to offer. it's not the thriller of the year you've been reading about but it is a fun, genre-melding flick.

  • Jason's rating of the film 10 Cloverfield Lane

    May be the first "Imax experience" I have had that can almost entirely be justified based on its sound design. At least that's something. I kinda like the idea of a bid budget Hollywood event picture reduced primarily to three actors in a bunker. Some good stuff in the bunker. Oldschool genre cinema, dressed up. When it tries to up the ante in the late going I may or may not have suppressed a yawn. Prefer The Birds.
