The Cloverfield Paradox

12 Feb

After having seen other Cloverfield-titled films, I was a bit sceptic about this one. None of them have been particularly pleasing to me. I’ve understood it’s a bit like Star Wars: they all tie together. It’s just that the Cloverfieldlane one was actually the best so far. And that one was weird already.

Anyway. This film has a bit of a slow start. It takes ages to sum up who plays in it and to make weird figures with their names, but anyway.

It has a lot of ‘been there, done that’ in it. It reminded me of films as The Thing, Back to the Future (though only because part of the storyline there) and Armageddon, aswell as Apollo 13.
Given that it’s all supposed to tie together, I’m aware that it might needs to feel a bit like Stranger Things (that first season was a true joy to watch, as it was giving such a recognisable feeling) but that doesn’t happpen here. Not like that.

Every single time the crew tries something, another thing starts going horribly wrong. And not like in Apollo 13 where you still have hope that there might still be a happy ending.

The end surprised me though. In a good way, I suppose (I do like surprises) but errr yeah.

If you like the Cloverfield series as a hole, go for it. I still wouldn’t recommend ‘Cloverfield’…..
