Movie Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane
A woman wakes up in an underground shelter with two men. One insists there are aliens above them and toxic gas. But he also has weird tics. She thinks he’s lying even when the other guy confirms there is something going on on the surface.
I liked the tension and suspense in this movie and the never quite knowing if John Goodman’s character/ Howard is telling the truth or not.
However, there was one part that irked me. Instead of letting the characters figure out something, the movie says here is an earring and it matches one in this picture. There’s a bit more to it in the movie than here, but I idon’t want to give away too much. However, I think the earring was too much and not needed. I’d have liked the characters to figure out what was going on with everything else.
Besides, what are the chances that the specific earring would match one in a photo?
Other than that, there were a few surprises and twists and turns. Some a bit unbelievable, but overall a decent movie.
My rating 3.8 out of 5
Andrea R. Cooper writes fantasy, paranormal, historical and romantic suspense.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
