Editorial Reviews

Widescreen Blu-Ray Cloverfield. Five young New Yorkers throw their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives.Starring: Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman,Jessica Lucas,T.J. Miller. Director: Matt Reeves. Rating: PG-13 for violence, terror and disturbing images

Customer Reviews

The special effects were good as well.
Christopher Hivner
It is not the first time that a film has used the gimmick of being shot by handheld camera.
The Doughball
I think this movie was made to see just how bad a movie can be made.

Format: DVD
Now that all the hype has die down I was able to give this film an objective look. I have to admit I was impressed. This movie throws out the music, set-ups, and cheap scares out the window - in a good way. Nothing in this movie tells you you're watching a movie of course. You're completely disorientated from start to finish, completely uncomfortable and on edge. And that is a hell of an achievement in today's de-sensitized movie environment. While I didn't jump once, I did find myself clutching the chair arms at various points.

I see why viewers would fine this derivative but every monster movie cliché is in there, and so it should be. The monster destroys landmarks. The military fight the monster. News reports advancing the plot. But it's delivered with such style and such punch that you can't help but be awed. You're seeing these events on an ant's eye level. There are no sweeping special effects shots of the White House being demolished by aliens, no aerial shots of buildings being destroyed - instead we get distant, unidentifiable bangs, fires obscured by the cityscape, an enormous leg moving behind a skyscraper - and a distant object which comes hurtling through the air, finally landing amidst chaos in a street, revealing itself to be the head of the statue of liberty.

This personal touch goes deeper - characters disappear from the story, and we (the audience) don't know their fate because the main characters don't. To be honest, I don't know whether I love this or like it but I was impressed. The subway scene was probably the best bit for me, and the ending slightly disappointed.

I take issue with the claim in the review that this was an uninvolving movie. I don't think that's the case--if you watch the movie more than once. I would consider the first viewing to be NUMBING. I choose this word carefully. The filmmakers are consciously referencing 9/11, and viewed through that lens, I found the plot to be representative of the human need to come to grips with that horrible event--the rescue narrative, which can be easily dismissed as romantic drivel, to me reads as the poetic expression of the human need to say the things that tragedy prevented us from saying.

The complaints about the way the film is shot--with the handy cam--are valid and fair. I was not bothered by them.

Finally, I will say this for the film. Yes, when I saw it in theaters, it felt uninvolving. However, it was also haunting. There was something about it that I felt compelled to come back to. I have now seen it three times. The more I see it, the more I see INTO it. I think seeing this movie once and dismissing it is a mistake.

The handheld camera.. or at leased they make it feel like one(theres good picture quality, but it still feels like a homemovie).. in my opinion it puts the viewer right there with the characters in the movie. there are very few examples for this subgenre, if thats what you want to call it. Blair Witch Project and Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon come to mind.

this style of filming has been one of the best ideas in horror, because there are no other styles that make the terror and action feel so real. there were multiple times i got chills down my neck from this movie. its just.. intense.

but.. without the camerawork, it is little more than another monster movie, which isnt a bad thing. it would still be leagues above most in the genre.

it takes a little time to get to know the characters in the opening scenes. i found most of the characters very believable and engaging. i actually cared about their everyday lives, and past together.(the first time in a while a was fearing for characters lives. i usually like the "villains") it turns out one of our main characters is leaving to live in china or something for a while, and theres a surprise going away party for him. nows about the time to buckle your seatbelt..

simply put, this movie blew me away. the camera style locks you in for the ride, and wont let go till its over. my heart was racing throughout 90% of the movie. you really are right there with them, dealing with the situation in front of you.. it could be the wildest ride you ever have on the couch.

Format: DVD
From a Marketing aspect Cloverfield was a huge success. It cost 25 mil to make it and on opening weekend it grossed 40 mil domestically, which broke the record for a January release. It dropped strongly after that and went on to gross 80mil in the U.S.

The film is all about Rob, as one reviewer on here mentioned (Puzzle Box), Rob could've been taken from the cast of the real world. We see more of Rob in the film then we do of the huge cool monster that decapitates the statue of liberty. At the beginning we see Rob with a hot girl, but, oh dear, now at his going away party a month later she shows up with another guy. They have a little falling out and the hot girl and her guy Travis leave, while Rob's last words are good luck tonight Travis. Rob's brother, his brother's girlfriend, and his best friend (who holds the camera) try to cheer him up, because even though all these people came to his party he is going to sulk in a corner and then go into his bedroom, this becomes a theme.

All of a sudden Manhattan is attacked by the big cool monster mentioned above, and you guessed it Rob just can't let those be the last words he said to the hot girl. In a nut shell it goes like this: Dude, I like have to get to her dude. Everyone feels so much pity for the little drama going on nobody seems to help anyone around them that could have glass in their grills. SPOILER ALERT. Rob's brother dies, he kind of looks upset for a second but quickly focuses on the hot girl again. To console his brothers girl he says at least you didn't say good luck tonight Travis to him.

Blu-Ray playback problems
Same for me too, man - with the Philips BD-P9000 (same unit as the Sammy 1000). I've tried with both Philips and Sammy firmware.

Alternate endings....
I don't know why people think that the ending is "bad". The fact that the characters are pathetic little peons in the grand scheme of things who don't understand what's happening is what makes it great! There are literally a hundred other monster movies where you get to see the typical... Read More
