4.0 out of 5 starsI would have enjoyed it even more
Verified purchase
The movie kept me on the edge of my seat through the entire time. As other reviewers have mentioned, it left me guessing as to what direction the movie was going. And if it wasn't for one thoughtless reviewer who posted the ending of the movie in her review, I would have enjoyed it even more.

4 stars for not the greatest suspense/horror movie I've ever seen, but it was more than just okay....I liked it (4 stars)
John Goodman is such a good actor, he had me guessing as to what his true intentions were, but there were plenty of clues along the way.
If I had to pick anything to improve on the movie, I thought some of the scenes were a little too predictable. Like the way Goodman's character would sneak up on them while they were planning something. You could just tell he was going to pop out at them.

Anyway, the movie is at least worth watching once. I often judge a move by how many repeated times I'll watch it. Like Alien and The Bird Cage, I've watched at least two dozen times each. This one I'll probably watch at least two or three more times.

And one final request for other reviewers, please don't ruin the movie for those who haven't seen it. Or at least write "SPOILERS" at the beginning of your review. Don't just blurt out the ending without telling people you're going to ruin it for them. That's really inconsiderate!

5.0 out of 5 starsHow much more can this poor girl endure?
Verified purchase
A real clever premise here - a horror movie within a horror movie. Don't know if that's original or not, but I've never seen it before (and I'm no spring chicken. More like a late summer chicken.) Very enjoyable, great acting by everyone, keeps you guessing till the end, and you really feel for the dilemmas this poor girl has to take on. I'm not sure I've ever seen a film where the lead character was in such an impossible situation... and yet the film never feels fake or even all that unlikely, given its premise. Very impressive young heroine, who just keeps on fighting and fighting... and I won't say how it ends.

4.0 out of 5 starsDifferent take on post-apocalyptic genre
Verified purchase
Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) leaves her husband, gets in her car, ends up getting hit and wakes up in a basement chained to the wall. She finds out she’s being held by Howard (John Goodman) who claims he’s protecting her after an attack upon the United States. The movie is about the two being together in an underground bunker with Michelle not sure whether to believe Howard or not. Obviously being chained to a wall complicates their relationship right from the start. She doesn’t believe his story that America has been attacked, and Howard is controlling and scary at times. This creates an inherent conflict between the two and a much different post-apocalyptic tale than is usually told.

The movie does a good job with its pacing. It goes from high points to lows and then back up. Sometimes it seems like Michelle and Howard will get along but other times it doesn’t. The ending is also definitely unexpected.

Overall this was a surprisingly good thriller.

3.0 out of 5 starsThe first movie was better. Wasn't worth all the searching over a year to find it, to watch it.

If you only knew how long it took for me to be able to see this movie and how hard it actually was to see it. Granted it was my fault for not seeing it in the theater when it came out but I thought for sure I would see it as a rental. Funny how time goes by. Now it is not available on Redbox as a disc rental, nor on Netflix. Nor could I find it on cable.

I finally broke down one weekend after literally trying for a full year to watch this movie and watched the first Cloverfield Lane movie on a Friday night. Then paid for the rental on Amazon and watched 10 Cloverfield Lane on a Saturday night.

When watching both movies back to back like that, I have to say I really enjoyed the first Cloverfield Lane movie more. It was more suspenseful. It kept me more on the edge of my seat. It made me jump a few times. I even enjoyed the story more. While 10 Cloverfield Lane really didn't do any of those things for me. It made me jump once but in a way that was predictably done and not suspenseful done. It also was more of a horror scary and I am just tired of that. We have enough of that in our day to day lives and on the news. I want to watch movies for an escape from reality.

5.0 out of 5 starsYou won't know whats coming next
Verified purchase
Im a huge fan of post-apocalyptic storys and this is no exception. The unique take on the thought-provoking trope left me both shocked and amused. TLDR: unless you don't like suspenseful or "scary" movies, watch this.
SPOILER ALERT*

It seems that the directors took a book out of the History channel and thought "You know what? Aliens." And I have to say, it was really not that off-putting. Throwing that kind of trope inside a trope, especially with how hit or miss both of those can be, is defiantly a bold move. But I defiantly think that it paid off. The only thing I wish is that we heard more of the antagonist's theory. It's alluded to many times that he has theories involving extraterrestrials and political enemies that would have really added greatly to the experience. It was a little bit cliche at times but given everything surrounding it I'm willing to forgive it. Definitely give this a watch, it's got a lot of interesting and well-performed twists.

5.0 out of 5 starsEven better if you HAVEN'T seen Cloverfield

Do yourself a favor. Find someone that hasn't seen Cloverfield and watch this with them. Then rejoice in their complete shock at the ending. I myself have seen Cloverfield and while the ending was exactly as expected, I still enjoyed this film. The best part about this film is after the ending, whether you love it or find it ridiculous, you can still sit for hours thinking about what exactly was Howard's plan or did he even have one? Was he right or wrong in the end? Do you think Michelle is better off at the end or worse?

its a clever movie with a strong, non-damsel female lead, dominated by interwoven sub plots rather than the overall plot. Very much like Cloverfield. If you hated Cloverfield, its highly likely you will hate this as well.

5.0 out of 5 starsGood movie
Verified purchase
I never watched Cloverfield, so I didn't know what to expect. I watched it with an open mind and enjoyed it.
There is humor in this film, though it's subtle. The story is interesting, moves fast, and the ending was completely not what I expected. The acting is good. The female lead is a smart character who comes up with some ingenious plans for escaping her "captor."

4.0 out of 5 starsJohn Goodman plays an extraordinarily CREEPY dude
Verified purchase
the movie starts out rather slow... John Goodman plays an extraordinarily CREEPY dude in this movie and does a decent job at it...but the ending??!! OH HOW I LOVE AN ENDING THAT LEAVES MY MOUTH OPEN AND MY EYES WIDE!! This has only happened a few times as most movies by 3/4 of the way into them, you can already devise what is going to happen, but this is right up there ( surprise ending wise) with The Sixth Sense and The Village. ( again, not plot nor story line, and each mentioned movie rated a lot better with me, however I am speaking of the ending only.)
