The End of New York City.....As We Know It!,
This review is from: Cloverfield [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
All of the photography is supposedly done by a guy selected at random to videotape testimonials at a party in New York City. During the party a really shocking event happens which scatters the partygoers and the videographer faithfully follows one group through all of their adventures in New York City as it is being destroyed around them.
The movie is intentionally choppy as one would expect under those circumstances and succeeds in presenting a sufficiently interesting story line that held my attention all the way through. As with most movies of this type you have to accept the basic assumptions of the movie to tolerate what happens but if you can the movie is pretty effective at telling its story.
The audience for this movie will be the sci-fi adventure, fantasy and horror movie crowd. Not a bad movie if you go in with your eyes open to the eccentricities it includes.
