Rumour has it Daniel Trachtenberg was 3/4 into the movie "Misery" when his DVD suddenly cut to "War Of The Worlds". He silently nodded his head in approval.

There once was an unoptioned script ~ Not a one studio thought it legit ~ The writer was cryin ~ But then came a tie-in ~ And now it's half great and half sh...who am I kidding. I love Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The parallels to Faults unfortunately weigh heavily in Faults' favor.

Imagine the best sex you've ever had - only this version lasts longer than the minute or two you're accustomed to and by the time your date has reached the Big O, she has turned into a Lovecraftian lump of fangs with techno-organic tentacles popping out of her every orifice as she savagely attempts to rip your face off. Nothing a few hours of the silent treatment can't fix.

Tense, likeable thriller, with a great lead performance from the imposing John Goodman, and good work from Winstead. Goodman's nicely-judged character had me guessing as to what movie was happening upstairs. It is very nicely shot, had effective sound design, and I really liked the moody orchestral music - it seemed to hark from a different time, or genre, but was most effective. I can see how the denouement might not sit well with some, but it worked for me. Likeable.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is hot & entirely adorable. John Goodman plays a strange duck well. We are never sure if he is an end of days savior, a monster or both. The doomsday scenario sets the stage for a lot of tension & drama. The plot continues to mutate, with many huge unexpected twists & turns. Excellent production quality & music. While I did not enjoy the original Cloverfield, this installment is well worth watching. Full of tension & anticipation to keep you interested & engaged.

10 Cloverfield Lane is the Cloverfield "sequel" I never knew I wanted. While sporting a great cast and a more than solid directorial debut, the film still manages to be tension filled and interesting throughout. Though I have to say I'm still thinking about the ending. If it doesn't make the movie better, it certainly makes it more entertaining.

Manages to keep things tense thanks to Goodman's amazingly menacing performance. For a while I was enjoying the fact that this sort-of-sequel at least got to do its own thing without recycling the source material wholesale, until the disappointment at the ridiculous and contrived finale set in. Other working titles were: 10 Signs Road, 0 Actual Cloverfield References (Slusho Signs Don't Count) But It Got Your Butts In The Seats Haha Gotcha Avenue.

Soak the patriarchy in acid and blow it the fuck up, because men are cowards who can't imagine surviving outside of the systems they set up. Even if they're entirely right about the dangers, their internalized fears hold them back from actually doing anything about it.

I'm a bit iffy on this one. I found it to be mostly effective in what it was trying to do. It kept me on my toes as to certain character motivations and what was really going on. The acting should probably get most of the credit for that as Goodman, Winstead, and Gallagher Jr. were all fantastic as essentially the only characters. Then the "Cloverfield" aspect of it comes into play and they try to do way too much in too little time. Still the film has stuck with me days after seeing it.

Oooh...I likey! Didn't know what to expect except from what the trailer revealed (or didn't) but was pleasantly surprised with this. John Goodman gives one of his best performances here, perfectly blurring the line between paranoid doomsday prepper and altruistic savior. What really makes this film though is the tight direction, constantly forcing you to flip flop on your perceived notion of truth and fiction, never letting you know what's really going on until the very end.

Imperfect but gutsy thriller that reeled me in from its wordless opening shots and kept me on the edge of my seat from then on. John Goodman is an absolute powerhouse, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is terrific as well. I definitely wish it ended 10 minutes sooner, though, because it ruins all of the sustained tension and does away with all of its built-up goodwill.

A perfectly cast film (esp in Goodman's case) that's well directed and acted, but what really makes this so good is an amazing script that repeatedly pulls the rug out from under the viewer every time things look like they're about to get predictable. At one point, things are overturned so completely certain viewers might feel they're in an entirely different film, but it all fits together perfectly & I for one would love to see a lot more & wish this had made a bigger dent at the box office.

This was really good! 10 Cloverfield Lane is all about tension, and that keeps the whole movie moving along with great performances from all 3 leads. Evan Trachtenberg proves to be a solid director with his really good shots and music score. This whole movie had me guessing from beginning to end, and that's really rare for me! Great twists thrown everywhere. Loved it more than Cloverfield. Definitely unexpectedly good and definitely worth watching.

It's like MISERY except you're not sure if Kathy Bates is actually insane because the apocalypse might be happening outside and you're too scared to check for sure because the air might be contaminated and there are smoldering dead bodies in view of the fallout shelter's window. Note: Mary Elizabeth Winstead is featured as a girl power version of MacGyver. Note 2: Pretty good addition to the recent wave of American survival cinema.

Frailty re-made for the age of Trump, 10CL is a pressure cooker with two sources of tension: the volatility of a control-freak paranoiac & the unknowability of what has transpired outside. Have Howard's grievances, paranoias, & survivalist instincts truly lent him a sensitivity to the apocalyptic? The end bites off more than it can chew but evokes a contrast between characters: Howard wants to encase a makeshift family in amber; Michelle willingly, resourcefully confronts the apocalypse head-on.

10 Cloverfield Lane is a white-knuckle thriller for 90% of its running time that's been marketed in an intelligent way to get you into the theater, even if its literal connections to Cloverfield are almost nonexistent. It builds and sustains an extraordinary atmosphere, it's got great acting, particularly from its leads, it's wonderfully paced, and it's genuinely thrilling and sometimes even scary. This is an incredibly fun ride, even if its marketing strategy may be a little disingenuous.

I'm not sure if anyone else will enjoy the unique blend of dramatic thriller and horror sci-fi as much as I did, but this was shockingly good. Even relative to his stellar career, Goodman's performance is outstanding. The tension is nearly unbearable throughout, and it somehow pulls off the turn towards apocalyptic fiction after leaving the truth shrouded in uncertainty for most of the runtime. The "Cloverfield" title should be regarded as a genre signpost more than an indication of a sequel.

I learned a lot about myself watching this movie. I would've happily accepted the situation and any evidence against the contrary I would look past / throw under a shelf "Didn't see this, not on Candyland night!". They had the audacity to charge people for those D-Box seats for this movie, the only time the seats moved for those fools was when John Goodman did.

"The Goodman Bump" in full effect; John Goodman is a goddamn national treasure and should be treated as no less. It feels like he so infrequently plays a bad guy. It's super refreshing to see him do that, and he's so amazing here. The elephant in the room is the addition of the "Cloverfield" namesake. Making it easy and going with the "spiritual successor" explanation, I'm mostly okay with it; I hold "Cloverfield" close to my heart and would hate to see the water muddied. But this flick's solid!

First thing's first: Goodman is terrifying when he's angry. Winstead is great too but god damn Goodman you're awesome. Besides that, I enjoyed almost the entire time in the bunker, but felt that the final act fell flat. It was incredibly unsatisfying after all that build, and this didn't need to be a Cloverfield "sequel." In fact, I would say that throwing the name on it and forcing it in hurt the film immensely. Still enjoyed the flick though based on the dialogue and strength of the leads.

4/5ths of a pretty impressive, almost Hitchcockian, tutorial on suspense. Goodman kills it with an impeccable performance. Wonderful framing and lighting give a unique, claustrophobic tone to his bunker. While, the last bit upsets some with its drastic change in tone, it is pretty entertaining.

Less a sequel to "Cloverfield", more a clever remake of... If you think I'm going to say "Take Shelter", OK, but I was actully going to say "When the Wind Blows". Except this isn't the cold war, and the rah-rah blow-shit-up of "Cloverfield" doesn't work either. This is the post-Snowden era of paranoia which is never unjustified but still eats its paranoids alive even as it arms them. Great performances, pseudo-Kubrickian direction, and then ... well. Hell yeah. Huge grin.

Solid, solid film. Really enjoyed the tension and tries to keep you guessing til the very end. Admittedly I thought they tried to throw in too much at the end, and it left a little unsure about it immediately after, but after letting it sit, I'm okay with it. Great performances all around and you definitely do NOT need to see Cloverfield to enjoy this.

10 Cloverfield Lane is a winner for me. Everything is a mystery whether it be the characters or whatever situation they may be in. Your curiosity will nearly consume you. Add to all of this some scattered moments of suspense on top of great performances from the leads. For some, the final act may not do it for you but I happened to enjoy. The ending will leave you with more questions with the biggest mystery being where does the future of this franchise lie? 4 STARS

Gripping and mysterious from beginning to end thanks to a classic 'Twilight Zone'-esque scenario and fantastic performances from the cast (notably from Goodman), '10 Cloverfield Lane' does what it aims to do so well that the occasional guffaw and not-wholly graceful landing can be easily forgiven.

This is the kind of escapist fun I'd check out on a weekly basis if Hollywood ever got into that business. On one level it is a scary psychological thriller about a woman overcoming a mentally unstable man. But it blows everything up via the sci-fi element and tense action. You're forced to ask yourself: toxic men or world destroying space alien invaders. In the end, the mix of social examination and fanboy speculation could make this a perfect triple bill with Ex Machina and Z for Zachariah.

The last act just feels completely disconnected from what came before, like the ending from another movie is attached to the end, with no resolution or payoff to what was set up in the first two acts. "They ruined it by forcing Cloverfield on it" is probably going to be a common, easy complaint, but I was really taken aback at how unsatisfying and unrelated the ending felt, and all I could think about was all the possible resolutions to the more interesting story that was there in the beginning.

A blend of a sci-fi post apocalypse, a character study drama, and a thriller all in one. Some may be put off with the prolonged drama during three quarters of the film when they expected buildings demolished. However, that's where this movie really shines. The only weakness is that they are defaulting towards a well tread allegory that men are the real monsters in a disaster that's been done to death already. However, this was done with such finesse and maintains tension it's just great.

Wow, what a great mix of genres. I wasn't too impressed by Cloverfield, but this movie is exceedingly well done. It picks the best elements of all its genres and it is a blast to watch.

Wonderfully surprised by this movie! I was expecting something akin to Cloverfield and this was a completely different type of movie. With basically only three people in the film for any significant time, the movie felt claustrophobic (in a good way) as you question each of the characters and who they really are. The ending almost seemed out of place to the rest of the film, but was done well enough that I didn't care. I'd like to see a sequel of some sort.

*spoilers ahead* ... Why did they need to call it 'cloverfield' and admit it was related to the original monster film in the marketing? I try to find out as little as possible about a story beforehand but it was impossible to avoid learning about this relationship prior to watching '10'. As a result it was impossible not to presume there was a monster/alien invasion so most of the tension and suspense is lost. Shame as without that the film would have been great, although the end was a bit weak

A compelling psychological horror/mystery/sci-fi film which succeeds by playing up the "what would you do?" realism angle, and by keeping its story very much open and uncertain until late in the film. Having such a cunning, practical, quick-thinking and brave heroine also raises it above the typical horror model. It holds plenty of surprises and makes the most of its restricted cast and locations. Trachtenberg handles about 4 or 5 different genres with aplomb, while Winstead is great to watch.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE is a tense, nasty little thriller made for viewers who like to marinate in its claustrophobic, scaled-down B-movie atmosphere: there's not a lot to pick apart in its straight-ahead plot, where even the twist ending is refreshingly candid. John Goodman, as a prickly survivalist who imagines himself both a misanthrope and a humanitarian, turns in a performance to savor.

For most of its runtime its a tense closed room thriller with engaging performances.

Accessible script that is easily tracked, the character's general sloppiness helps the plot progress in place of script sloppiness with the use of deus ex machina, which is a plus. The to-ing and fro-ing between comfort in the surroundings helped keep immersion along the way. I felt Winstead underplayed her role vs the usual blubbering feme-de-trainwreck you'd find in a similar film set in close quarters, which worked to her/ the realisms advantage.

Tense, filled with enough claustrophobia and mystery to cause an anxiety attack, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a surprising mystery thriller delight. Though the final 20 minutes and sci-fi elements feel rather tacked on, out of place and leave you with the feeling it would have worked better without it (why was the action scene needed), the preceding 80 minutes are filled with fantastic performances, wonderful presentation and enough tension to keep you engrossed through this middle-tier sci-fi flick.

An immediate and enrapturing atmosphere of claustrophobic anxiety and unsettling suspicion (Goodman's great turn as the odd and volatile Howard is perfectly complimented by Winstead's tense and assertive Michelle) is heightened nicely by an initially inscrutable third party, and given a well-timed twist (see the lady outside). Given its build-up, climax, and overall feel, the extended ending-while appreciably unexpected-feels like an entirely different movie-but it's still a good one.

But a big-hearted guy that he was, he still decided to rescue a young woman from upcoming apocalypse for the very small price of companionship and maybe, just maybe, a little bit of cock-sucking (what a deal!). It's graciousness that brought him to a gnastly demise. How fortunate the man with none!

10 Cloverfield Lane plays on our fears, too--the fear of the unknown, right along with the terror of what we know all too well. This is a horror movie, both intimate and sprawling in scope. And as a horror movie, it works. It works too well, perhaps. (pluggedin.com)

Not quite Cloverfield and rather anti-climactic considering the high degree of tension built throughout the film, but it's an interesting ride.

A woman running away from a crumbling relationship (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is knocked out in a car accident and wakes up in the bunker of a prepper (John Goodman) who tells her that America has been attacked and that the outside world is toxic. Revelations come, but the title provides a tip-off for the initiated. Superb performances across the board, sharply mounted, and quite engaging...until the big third-act reveal, after which we might as well be in a different film. It didn't work for me.

A Hitchcock style thriller full of suspense and some great performances. Please remember John Goodman come Oscar time.

Well put together with great shots and a good score. Increases with tension in a good tempo that left me guessing throughout. The ending was a bit too "full blown" for my taste. *Good

A well-conceived modern thriller that pitches its scenes of suspense (aided by an excellent Hermannian/Hitchcockian score), comic relief, and character moments in near perfect harmony. In its attempt to flesh the characters out through suggestion and implication (by giving each of them a monologue or two to serve as the entire basis for their character), they ultimately end up feeling thin (and their speeches quite trite), but the film's gleeful unpredictability makes up for many of its errors.

10 Cloverfield Lane is not the monster movie sequel that it teases to be. I didnt enjoy Cloverfield so I never wanted or needed a sequel. But this sequel of sorts is almost entirely disconnected and as a standalone thriller this is a satisfying experience. Daniel Trachtenberg's overall direction is superb and both Mary Elizabeth Winstead and in particular John Goodman give impressive performances. Elements of the final third feel shoehorned in but otherwise this film deserves nothing but praise.

Didn't really know what to expect, but I got something completely different. Truly thrilling.

A "light" LOST episode gone too long. Goodman shines but the lazy writing leaves you unsatisfied. And have you heard about the lame last act? Yup, it's twue.

The only clear failure is that the title gives away one of the fun mysteries of the movie. No movie with "Godzilla" in the title is missing a giant lizard.

Through the power of J.J. we get this War of the Worlds fan fiction, released to unsuspecting audiences who are probably up for much mayhem, just maybe not in the guise of a creepy prison break/chamber piece written with the sophistication of ComicCon nerds. Even the constant ratcheting up of tension with micro-dramas and panicked montage belongs to TV. Let's leave the big screen to masters like Spielberg whose 2005 film is in its terrifying beauty still the unsurpassed invasion piece.
