Movie Reviews: 10 Cloverfield Lane


There are a certain number of films that you can only watch once. There Will Be Blood, Crash, The Ring … Ok, yeah, maybe there are a ton of movies that fit this bill. 

Last weekend, I watched 10 Cloverfield Lane which is a movie that was ok in the suspenseful category, but not spectacular enough for a second viewing. 

This was essentially a very low budget film with 3 actors. The only seasoned actor was John Goodman who is tasked to do all the acting. Part of me is unsure if the other two were told to play it dumb, but their acting was nonsensical. To be honest, they reminded me of when Seth Green was locked in a bathroom in Can’t Hardly Wait with the girl. They could be in th apocalypse but they couldn’t care less. To them, what is outside isn’t scary at all … only a creepy John Goodman. 

There are some gimmicks, and some poor special effects in the last act, which make the movie unwatchable on a second viewing. The ending is laughable horrendous and reminded me of some outer limits episode.

See it once.

Don’t see twice.

Movie Rating: 4/10 Bunkers
