Cloverfield is a pretty cool film in some ways - there is something inately enjoyable about watching a monster smash stuff up. But really, this is pap. The Dawson's Creek first 20mins is a bunch of drama and man crying likely to appeal to only under 15s. And the very beggining, with the timecode & 'Government Department' logos etc, was just silly. It doesn't have the inherent scariness of Blair Witch, and isn't nearly as inventive. It's OK for a laugh and pretty good ride, but at the same time I felt conned once I left the cinema. But these reviews are overly positive - and Flicks.co.nz, I expected more to be frank. A bastian of good taste and intelligence in a nation of horrible newspaper film reviewers. A four star for this? Everyone makes mistakes.
