Storyline

After a car accident, Michelle awakens to find herself in a mysterious bunker with two men named Howard and Emmett. Howard offers her a pair of crutches to help her remain mobile with her leg injury sustained from the car crash and tells her to "get good on those" before leaving the bunker. She has been given the information that there has been an alien attack and the outside world is poisoned. However, Howard and Emmett's intentions soon become questionable and Michelle is faced with a question: Is it better in here or out there? Written by Paramount Pictures

Goofs

There are several things that signify that are anachronistic if this film takes place directly after or simultaneous with the events in 'Cloverfield': (1) Emmett claims that all the kids are saying "YOLO" these days. If the film presumably takes place around the same time or shortly after the original Cloverfield attack (May-April 2008), then very few kids, if any at all, were saying "YOLO", a term that wasn't popularized until 2011 by rapper Drake; (2) Michelle has a modern iPhone; (3) The registration on Michelle's car expires 07/2015; (4) Emmett's drivers license expires in 2018, etc... But there is no evidence to suggest that the events in this film are directly related to the events depicted in 'Cloverfield'. JJ Abrams has never confirmed anything other than that this film is a "blood relative" to the first film. The events may be related, but set years apart, or the story may not be set in the same fictional universe. See more »

Much better than the 2008 "Cloverfield" movie, this is about a gripping & intense story and raw tension rather than special effects and crushing things.
10 March 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

If this is going to be an anthology or if this is going to be followed by that rumored third installment that has been recently spoiled by J.J. Abrahms, I can say that nobody doubts about the secretly marketed "10 Cloverfield Lane" is a great movie on its own. And a movie that if it were spoiled by someone here or at any review would be cruel.

Since the start it reveals to be a movie that doesn't hide an ace, but a hundred.

The pace can be a little slow at the first half only to add more and more tension, hooking the audience and introducing them into the movie like they were one of the people inside that bunker.

John Goodman will be a real trend the future days thanking its superb performance. He's so twisty, complex developed character. He and Mary Elisabeth Winstead make the movie shine alongside the story.

The story is so little, then so game-changer, with twists and turns that are smart rather than empty. It's one of that makes you guess all the time.

The ending is more of a bang than a whimper. Even when it succumbs to the action and polemic moves, it will leave you on a grim and high note, pestering for another outing if it's any good like this.

If the "Cloverfield" that started it all was about speaking without breath and CGI scares, this "10 Cloverfield Lane" is about deeper intentions, deeper tension and personal stuff that is scarier than a giant monster. While the connection to that movie is not so remarkable until the finale, this installment is so brilliant on its own, so well marketed (without ruining any twist) and so well ended that will surely please any viewer who were looking for a damn good movie. This is a scary movie like the classic ones. Don't miss it.
