Jan 26 – May & I watched Cloverfield without any inkling what to expect and after few minutes, I realized that it used the same concept of actual first hand outlook from the camera like “The Blair Witch Project”. My first reaction was that it was going to be a long a difficult two hours. If I had known, I might not even have gone for this movie.
After a slow start, the movie took off with bang with what initially appeared to be an earthquake in New York. Cloverfield was a refined version of The Blair Witch Project and it was absolutely enjoyable after the first 15 minutes.
As the story unfolded, the havoc was actually caused by a giant monster. I was saying to myself, this would be difficult to pull off. Imagine a giant monster destroying New York.
The mayhem continued and the producers have managed to keep the story line simple. They have created enough suspense and continued action scenes to keep the audience glued to the screen.
Overall, it was a very good effort but only to be left “high and dry” in the end as there wasn’t any ending for the main theme of the movie which was the monster. So what the F*.* happened to the monster?!
