Saturday Afternoon, my wife and I check out the latest movie produced by Lost’s J.J. Abrams.
Quite honestly, I wasn’t too sure what to expect from Cloverfield. The movie trailer quickly establishes that something has knocked the head off of the Statue of Liberty. When I saw this, something Godzillalike came to mind. Either that or King Kong, is running around like a madcap monkey in Manhattan once more. The trailer doesn’t show you what did it or how it happened.
You have to go to the ovie to find out, as I won’t tell you (or show you either). That is the surprize part of the movie.
Cloverfield employs an unknown cast of actors, and focuses around 6 people, Rob Hawkins, his brother Jason, Rob’s semi ex girlfriend, Beth McIntyre, his friends Hud, Lily and Marlena.
While attending a going away party for Rob, this group of people experienced what they though was an earthquake. They soon find out, that it is something terribly worse.
This film is shot through a camcorder angle, as Rob Hawkins’ friend Hud, was playing the videographer for Rob’s going away party. The whole film is shot this way, in some ways it makes the film more believable, and in other ways, it is detrimental to Cloverfield.
If you have ever seen The Blair Witch Project, you know that this type of filming can work, and work well. Where Cloverfield fails is the film is so herky jerky at times, it is hard to watch. At some point during the film, they should have cut away from the camcorder angle. It would have been much more enjoyable.
I spent time in New York City last summer, so in that respect, this movie made more of an impact on me, than it may with other people. There are moments that will make you jump, and others that will make you squirm.
As a whole, the story is pretty good, and the special effects are certainly solid. This is a fun, but not perfect popcorn flick.
Sci Fi fans will certainly want to check this out!
