BEWARE THE MOON REVIEWS
As promised in my last review, here is my review on the last Cloverfield film, The Cloverfield Paradox, "A group of scientific researchers on a space station attempt to harness a new energy source called the "God Particle," only to unleash something terrifying."
I have also just realised I forgot to mention how I watched 10 Cloverfield Lane with my dad and I also watched this film with him too, he is a big fan of the first Cloverfield - fun fact right there.
Each of these films are insanely different, but they are all brilliant in their own ways. This one is in space though, not in a city or a bunker, in space in a spaceship - it's pretty damn interesting and clever. Paradox basically goes back to basics with Cloverfield and you learn how it all started, I hope that's not a spoiler.... pretty sure it's not.
For being the last one out of the three, it takes it allllll the way back to the beginning.
Thing about this film, and it's not a bad thing at all, it's a cliché is what it is, is that even though each person on here is probably smarter than the average person, they do not act smart. At all. This is a cliché though in any film like this, even good films, characters seem to have brain farts and do stupid things, it makes for a great story! Take Alien, good old Kane sticks his head in an unknown type of rock and, surprise surprise, an alien pops out and further on kills him. A brilliant film, but with brain farts.
This is similar, it's a good film and it keeps you watching, but the characters definitely do some silly, silly things. Hear a random noise coming from the wall? Open the wall and pull out what ever is in there, why don't you, because that's smart. But hey, it makes for a great movie.
The Cloverfield Paradox is a good ending to this franchise, a very good ending, it ties it all up in a nice little bow and pretty much ends where it starts - if you get what I mean. I don't want to say too much as, with all these films, the spoilers are difficult to spot, but it's very good. Probably my least favourite out of the three, but it does not make it bad at all. Actually, the deaths in this film are great, such a weird thing to say but they are so damn original. And don't knock Chris O'Dowd and him being in a serious film, he's brilliant and damn funny. Good tension, good deaths, a good story and it rounds it all off well at the end.
Got a free weekend? Watch all three in one go, I dare you!
Watching horror films since like 2003, when I could stand dead bodies..
