Cloverfield is one of the most exciting and frightening sci-fi horrors of the last decade. A wobbly-rollercoaster ride that weaves its rickety way through darkened subways and exploding skyscrapers to avoid the powerful, terrifying and destructive force that has New York City under attack. Matt Reeves' monster-horror combines suspense, terror and explosions within its sudden, claustrophobic, and tension-filled scenes of desperate New Yorkers struggling to stay alive.

Rob's (Michael Stahl-David) impending trip to Tokyo is put on hold when, during his going away party, a devastating and frightening presence starts to destroy the city. As the explosions, screams and devastation increase, Rob, his brother Jason (Mike Vogel) and their group of friends face the most difficult decision of their lives. As Rob's long-term friend and current love interest Beth (Odette Yustman) is trapped alone in her apartment on the other side of the city, do they attempt to save themselves and flee the city to safety or head further in to the ruin and save Beth?

Cloverfield is a fantastically wrought film, where The Blair Witch Project style of using a handheld home video camera throughout adds tension and captures the chilling realism of the situation in which the city, and group, have found themselves in. With stylistic flourishes and inventive shocks, director Matt Reeves and visionary producer J. J. Abrams (Lost), have delivered on their `documentary-style' monster attack concept and produced an enjoyable, exhilarating and downright scary monster movie.

I must say that peterhasse's review is mostly spot on-well done sir. Personally their is little for me to add other than Cloverfield left me strangely hollow after the experience. The found footage is a well worn plot device and works effectively here, but it didn't allow for character attachment on the audience's part. No one in the film is likeable enough for us to give a damn about if they lived or died. Of course that's the point of Cloverfield to a large degree; the camera is a document of the disaster and we couldn't be lucky enough to find such amazing footage combined with people we would love to root for. That would be contrived.
Still we are left with some deeply impressive shots; the stealth bomber, the street fight, and the collapsed sky scraper, all of which combine to etch a realistic portrayal of the Big Apple under siege.
The monster is more menacing when only half glimpsed but to have a huge creature remain hidden entirely would be a suspension of disbelief too far in the age when everyone has a camera.

 Great flim - something a bit different

Great flim, if your watching it for the 2nd time the first 20 mins are boring but the special effects are clever and the storey ticks along nicely.

People have moaned about the camera work but thats what makes it original and the fact its told from one perspective and thats all you see adds to the mystery and suspense

Overall great flim and somehting you probably wont have seen before

 Frighteningly Real

I'm not really a fan of "The Blair Witch Project" style of movie making but this film really worked. The camera angles and use of a regular hand-held video camera helped to create the real-life setting which in turn created the sheer horror of what was happening on-screen and made it seem like reality. Horror-type films (such as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer) don't usually effect me because you can tell it's staged, but watching this I started wondering, "God, what if this happened, and it COULD happen because it looks so real being shot from the actors point of view", and so on. The fact that it's so simple makes it one of the best films and most watchable.

BRAVO!!!!

 exellent!!!!

firstly, anyone who throws up by watchin a movie shot like a home video is over reacting. its like watching 'youve been framed' and suffering from migraines and sickness cuz the dude with the camera is shaking with laughter.! get over it!........................... back to the film, i thought this film was the most intense film ive seen, this basically down to the camera work, the 'shaky camera' is what makes the film - if it was done like a normal movie - it would be called godzilla 2. buy this movie

 A VERY CLEVER MIX OF THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT AND GODZILLA!

Anybody who is wanting watch this movie expecting to see the next Roland Emerich disaster/monster on the rampage blockbuster will be very disapponted.
But if you want to see a very original and personal account of unfolding mayem and terror this film works perfectly. It's shot as a documentation of seven hours when New York City is ripped a new one, by a marauding giant beast. The film starts as a hand held home movie to a suprise leaving party, but then as the ground rumbles and explosion's can be heared in the distance turns into terror. This home movie account works as the terror and confusion feels very real and it's as if you are taking part in it. The camera jutters, cuts, jumps as it would as if you are running for your life and these affects really do add the the hyper sence of reality. As for the giant beast, it's filmed in short burst's and you are left not knowing it's full shape, only knowing that it's very big and very nasty. There is no explanation to what it is, this again adds to the confusion of the sitiation. The film is filled with great moments of suspense, perfect examples are the bridge and the tunnel sequences.
This is a very original film with a great uncomfortable ending. The film is dark gritty and scary, with a swift running time.
This is without a doubt a monster hit!
But if you see this in the cinema make sure you don't sit too close to the front as at times it may be almost impossible to see whats going on.
An original and outstanding movie, a must see!
